Spam Comments Recieved at Ham’s Life

Here at Ham’s Life we like to receive comments. We don’t mind if you share your web site address in the comment if it is a ham radio oriented site or even if it is not about Amateur radio but has some technical information that might be of interest to Amateur Radio operators.

You can comment that you enjoyed an article or that you did not enjoy a post. You can even tell us you disagree on a subject, just as long as you do it kindly. These are not reasons to reject your comments.

Every comment is carefully checked before it is published to see if it appears to be spam and if it does then that comment will not be posted.

A recent comment left on Ham’s Life comments was, “Hi, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam responses? If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can advise? I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any assistance is very much appreciated.” It probably looks innocent enough to those who are not involved in blogging but that comment is a spam.

First the site has no similarity to Ham’s Life. It has nothing to do with ham radio, radio technology, hobby, or anything else that might make it appear similar to Ham’s Life. It is not even a blog. The email is a bogus address so when we make an effort to answer his question it becomes a waist of our time because it just bounces. Effort is made to try to help when a question is ask even it is not directly about Amateur Radio or even radio as in the above comment.

So please if you have a comment to make leave it. Maybe there is a subject you would like to see explored on this site, if so just leave a comment. If you just want to contact us but you don’t want your comment published then just say, “please don’t publish” and the comment will be read but not published. If you want to leave a generic comment about how much you liked the post or didn’t like the post then please insert something in the comment that makes it look like you have actually read the post because fluff comments come in every day from people who have not read the post. Comments that are abusive, use unexceptionable language, or are insulting will not be published. A way to judge your comment is to ask yourself, “would a mother of a 10 year old or younger child want that child reading your comment.” If you can truthfully answer yes then it stands a very good chance of  being posted but if you answer no then please rewrite your comment before you submit.
