Internet Commenter Business Meeting

August 19th, 2007

Internet Commenter Business Meeting: (NSFW) Satire of commenting on the Internet. This video reminds me of why so many people (including me) have stopped reading Slashdot. It surprises me to read some of the inane comments left on TechCrunch before I realize that they are just spammers who are trying to make their comments look related to the topic at hand. However, I take the good with the bad. I love comments and I try to actively engage people to comment. To me an interactive blog is an active blog and an active blog is a useful blog and is more fun to read. For example, I like Jonathan Swartz’s Blog a lot more now that he allows people to post comments.

    I heard that people are getting paid to comment on blogs now. I guess that goes along with the spammers trying to be legit, which doesn’t really work since I have an Akismet full of crappy ones but I just think it’s nuts. But you’re right. An active blog is a good blog. I just wish more people would become more active in their communities and interact with their readers more.

    I so very agree with you. A blog without comments looks lifeless to me.

    It’s just the openness of the Internet that allows spammers to lurk among the real users. But we should learn to fight with them to keep them at bay rather than getting rid of interaction on blogs.

    Mark one of these days I am hoping to be able to welcome you to the dofollow community on Bumpzee.

    I think there is a huge difference between blogs and bloggers who allow comments, and those who encourage discussion.
