No Really, your domain is the problem.
Over the past couple of weeks I have been getting more and more comments that leave a Blogspot URL in the Link section of the comment form. I happen to moderate my comments and always check every new commenter’s link. That has turned into a very scary task. I see that the link they have left leads to a Blogspot blog and I cringe. I also make sure that my stomach is settled, close 1 eye, and prepare to hit ESCAPE!
I bet you know where this is going!
Yes, many of the links lead to sites that are full of ‘body parts’ pictures. I realize that people have those parts but, I really don’t want to see them with my morning coffee. If I had wanted to see those ‘parts’ every day then I would have become a Gynecologist or a Proctologist.
Cait also got slammed on her blog with the same type of comment links so, that sent me on a Twitter bitch fit.
I Tweeted out and stated I was sick of these links and wondered if Blogspot allowed these type of blogs. Apparently they do, they are suppose to be in a private mode but, if you click a direct link then BAM there are ‘parts’ in your face! No warning or asking if you want to see what would be considered an Adult site, you are just directed straight there.
After some tweets, I ended up going into my spam filter and setting Blogspot as a spam word. This means that if someone tries to leave a comment and their URL is from Blogspot it gets rejected. Sorry to all of the people that have family friendly blogs there as you will not be able to leave your url in a comment. I figured that this was just the best move to save me problems until Blogspot cleans up their site.
I would suggest that anyone runny a blog on Blogspot get their own domain and hosting. I would not want my site associated with some of the other blogs there.
Last time I had a fit about Blogspot was when you visit a blog there and hit the NEXT button, you can also get pages that have ‘parts’.
So, if you have a domain on blogspot you will NOT be able to leave the link in my comments section. Sorry!
Note to the Blogspot Boys – Lots of bloggers are having this same problem with the adult sites that you host – get something fixed! When there are adult sites and kids can just click the link and have no warning you have a problem. Parents (or the government) will want to take more control over the internet (just look at other counties that are trying it).
Ok, my fit is over for the moment. LOL!
Thank you and have a nice day!
