Comment Moderation.

I offer my sincere apologies to my readers whose comments went off into my moderation box since yesterday. My blog was attacked by a virus and in the process of setting things right, we had to put that function in and that is when some comments got diverted.

I have now rejigged the comment function to accept all comments automatically from commentators whose earlier comments had been approved.

Jean, I owe you a big one. Thank you.



Kristianne at wordpress cursus, God knows what cursus means, commented on my post on Meditation as follows:

“It’s a shame you don’t have a donate button! I’d certainly donate to this superb blog! I suppose for now i’ll settle for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to fresh updates and will share this website with my
Facebook group. Talk soon!”.

I am intrigued. Do you think that sane people will donate to read and post comments on my blog if I instal a ‘Donate’ button? If not a ‘Donate’ button, what Button should I instal in my blog that she can push?

I hope that she will talk to me soon. I shall ask her to donate directly into my PayPal account.

Please do not visit my Mediatation post to verify. I sent her comments where it belongs, to the Spam box.

Interesting Comments.

Among the many comments that I gleefully send to my trash bin, this one has appeared on quite a few occasions. The same comment from different URLs, so most decidedly a spammer.

This time however, just to liven up things a bit on this blog, where earth shaking matters have been discussed recently, I thought it prudent to share the brilliance.

“I leave a comment whenever I appreciate a article on a site or I have
something to add to the conversation. Usually it is a result of the sincerness displayed in the
post I browsed. And after this article Male Attractiveness.

| Ramana’s Musings. I was moved enough to post a thought 🙂 I do have 2 questions for you if you don’t mind.
Could it be only me or does it look like like a few of
the comments look like they are coming from brain dead folks?

😛 And, if you are writing on other online social sites, I would like to follow anything fresh you have to post.
Would you make a list all of your social pages like your
linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?”


christian couples counseling

A spammer calling him/herself christian couples counseling has left this comment on my post A New Friend.

“WTF? Is dis real?”

I wonder if s/he is serious or s/he means Wecome To Facebook.

I have left the spam in place without deleting it so that my readers can see for themselves that this really happened. (Following TOF’s comment, I have sent the comment to my spam box)

The URL takes one to a site called Rescue Marriage dot net.

Need I say more?

Suggestion To Improve My Blog.

Somebody called Lewis but with an email id with salmolina as the first word from Vintage Coffee Table, has this to say on my post “Mothers Day”:

“I think that what you published made a lot of sense. But, think on this, suppose you added a little content?

I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your blog, but suppose you added something that makes people want more? I mean Mothers Day. | Ramana’s Musings is a little boring. You might look at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create article headlines to get viewers to open the links. You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to get readers interested about everything’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it might make your posts a little bit more interesting.”

S/He, could be Salvatore or Sally, goes yesterday to a post that was posted on May 13, 2012, and has the gall to advise me that though s/he does not wish to tell me how to run my blog, but goes on to add the rest!

I am willing to bet that this is from a paid-to-comment commentator who could not care less if I trashed the comment as spam, but I wonder if the owner of the blog realises that such comments cause more harm for the owner than good.

I am leaving the comment to stand in my post and have also responded.
