Adopts Comment Policy

by Maureen McCabe on January 22, 2012

A Columbus commercial broker keyword stuffing the name line on his comment reminded me I meant to post a policy about using names when commenting on a post here.

I became aware a couple of “friends” from a real estate network were using keywords in place of their name a couple of months ago. I should have posted my comment policy then.

If you leave a comment, put a name in the name slot. Do not put keywords. Your name is not “Office Broker” (I think that was the keyword he was spamming.) I am still trying to decide what to do with the two “Office Broker” comments left on my site. I have options:

Delete the comments?
Edit the keywords out of the comment?
Remove the link?

If you do not want to use YOUR real name when commenting use a pseudonym. Suggestions? John Smith, John Doe, SpongebBob SquarePants. I don’t have a problem with anonymity. I have a problem with keyword spam.

I’m feeling a blog post about the best commercial real estate company in town coming on…
