How To Be A Douche Bag Commentator

There is no doubt that loading up dofollow plugins may increase readership, or at least commentators. However, the disadvantage of it is that you may just get one or two guys who are just commenting for the sake of having a back link to their website or blog. For these people, I would like to label them as douche bag commentators.

Before I proceed, I would like to make it clear that I am not implicating that everyone who comments in a dofollow blog are guilty of this “sin”. I am talking about those who commented even though they have not fully read or understood your post. Here is an example.

Commenting for the sake of a back link

I just loaded up the dofollow plugin in my new blog where I share my favorite music videos. The nofollow tag will be removed when someone leaves at least three comments in that blog. It is still a very new blog with very few viewers.

I got three comments from the same guy (“Mr T”) within four minutes. Mr T may argue that he is a speed reader with excellent typing skills, thus the speed in commenting. However, considering that each of the posts that Mr T commented in has an average of 100-200 words and at least one video between 3 to 5 minutes, I will be truly amazed if his commenting was sincere.

I have removed all of his comments. Do you have the same experience as I did? Mind to share it?

    Seriously, Kelwin, it’s your blog, so you can do whatever you want to. There will always be people who tell you to “disable the plugin” but will you listen to all of them?

    *shows fist to Jason* LOL.

    Anyway, it’s your blog, and you should, and have the rights, to moderate comments on your blog wherever you deem right, so don’t feel bad for deleting comments that aren’t comments =)

    @Jason
    That defeats the purpose of me having it there at the first place. hehe.

    @pelf
    Yeah, I know. Actually I don’t feel bad deleting the comments. I was just worried that I might delete real comments.
