Nature of comments – what is allowed, what isn’t, what gets ignored, and what gets abominated.
miketsu blog is my online blog of every day stuff. I write about experiences I either find are interesting or educational (for example, reviews) and various snippets of my life I think people can relate to.
In case if you haven’t realised, I make a lot of effort to format, punctuate, spell and get my entries in good grammatical order. This is because even if I talk about sensitive topics, it shows I’m not just uneducated bluff.
So, what’s appreciated?
Comments are definitely appreciated – a bonus if they’re all typed out properly and not full of acronyms.
You may disagree with what I write – but disagree and maybe state a reason. Examples:
Good way to disagree: I disagree with what you have written because I think that he had done a really good job considering it’s his first acting gig. (note that this isn’t even a positive or friendly sounding comment, but at least it’s to the point regardless of whether or not I choose to agree with it)
Bad way to disagree: WTF R U TALKIN BOTU UR SOOOOOO STOOOOOOOOPID HES LYK SO CUTE SO Y DUN U GO SHUT UP AND TELL SUM1 WHO CURRS?? (note that this doesn’t even make a point and hurts my brain and IQ points just trying to comprehend the personal attack due to lack of argumentative skills)
I treat comments with the same level of respect I have received. So if you want a polite comment, make a polite comment worthy of being polite to. It’s not hard – seriously. You don’t even need to sound polite, you just need to sound mildly intelligent, sane, normal or mature – or friendly will do 😉
And yes, I have received at least one bad comment before – not only that, help was called to make it look like there was someone agreeing with them! I monitor I.P addresses and I can see all the info! Don’t think I don’t know it when you call in your friend to help you out, I can tell you’re from the same country, especially if your “helper” replies within 10 minutes of your comment post! If you’re wondering why I moderate comments, you know who to thank – an immature kid who thought the world revolved around her way of thinking, and decided to abuse my free commenting system.
All comments that are spam in nature and advertise random websites will not be published.
I despise spam. I’ve received over 2000 spam comments in the time I’ve started this blog. Please, take your spam elsewhere. You won’t ever get it approved, so don’t try with me.
Comments that are not related to the post topic will also not be published.
By this I mean people who randomly advertise stuff on my posts without acknowledging what my post is about. It’s okay to say “oh hey, I’ve ordered from them too! Here’s a link to my experience” – that’s absolutely fine by me – but some people are like “yo check out my blog” – uhm, NO THANKS?
I put a lot of time and effort into my posts. If you write something on my post that doesn’t even relate to what I’ve written, that’s just spam. No respect for my blog = no respect for your comment.
When will I get a response from you?
I reply – really fast.
Most comments written on miketsu blog requiring a reply will get a reply within 24 hours. 48 if I’m away from life. Possibly 72 or more if I’m away from home (ie. Interstate, international).
