I’m getting way too many crap comments from people that obviously just want a followed link. I’m not putting up with that any more.
I’ve decided to deactivate the DoFollow plugin I’ve been using. Spam is getting out of hand and I believe the DoFollow policy has something to do with it. I’ve seen FanaticSpace listed in posts that suggest spamming for S.E.O. purposes.
That is not why I installed that plugin and removed NoFollow. I hate returning the comments to NoFollow, because I want to encourage participation. Participation or no, I’d hate to have a spammy site even more.
I will be looking into other changes to FanaticSpace as well. I want this site to be the best it possibly can. I want to make it a place that people want to visit. Getting tough on spam is the first step.
