Everyday my blog gets innundated with “comments” that aren’t really comments, but hits from other websites. I recently learned that this is the way that a website gets status on Google is by being referenced to by as many other websites as possible. Daily I go through a process of deleting these hits.
I came across one that touched me:
“Hello, you have a very nice site, but Im hired to leave advertising comments on sites, sorry i hate to do it but i have to . If you dont like advertising comments please send me an email with your site address to I will not write on your site. Sorry for inconvenience.”
A little humanity leaking into the impersonal battle for website supremacy. Bless you, oh annoymous contractor with the uneasy conscience. Bless you.
