Sometimes I get a comment written in Chinese. I always use the google translator to see what the comment is, and usually its a pretty benign comment. Sometimes it seems to be a saying that has to do with life, and sometimes it doesn't really relate to what I'm posting about, but it has never irritated me.
On my last post, though, a rather lengty comment was left in Chinese. I checked the translation and it was about porn sites. So then I tried to find a way to delete this comment. Apparently there isn't. None that I could see anyway. On my other blog, a livejournal blog, there's a way for me to delete any comments that I don't like. I haven't had to use it.
I only have a few followers, so it's not like I'm a bigtime blogger, but I don't think I want my blog associated with porn sites, and I wonder why any one would put this type of comment. I'm not talking about porn myself, and this doesn't really seem like a spam thing. It's just dumb.
So I've changed my comment options to be previewed first. I don't know how that will work. It seems like it'll take a long time for comments to show up unless I check my blog frequently, and sometimes I go all day without checking my email or my blogs.
So - thanks all you weirdos out there, for affecting my blog
And to those of you who leave normal comments about topics that I actually post about - thank you. I appreciate your comments.
update! I researched further, and found out how to delete comments. I have to say that earlier when I was trying to figure this out, I didn't see any little gray trashcans after eacy comment, but the second time I logged in there they were. This must be a case of computer gremlins! :)
but The comment moderations remains until these type of comments cease
