To date, my ratio of spam comments to legit comments is 35:0. I don’t get a lot of traffic yet, and I’m not surprised. But if you’re a real human reading this blog and are actually thinking about posting a real comment, here’s all you have to do to get it passed moderation:
1) Say something substantive. I don’t care if you agree with what I said or not, just say something substantive.
2) Ask a question.
3) Don’t post a suspicious url in the ‘website’ field. I’m probably going to turn this off entirely, but until I do just know that if you post some url that doesn’t look legitimate I’m not going to expose my readership to your probably-malicious url.
That said, if you’re a real person and have actually read one of my posts and have something to say about it, I’d love to hear from you.
