You know those interesting Japanese comments we get on our blogs from time to time?
Well, a while back, Sarah at Slushbusters (I adore those gals) was so great to inform me that they could possibly link to horrible sites displaying inappropriate pictures of children (I don't want to say the p*rn word because I don't want my site to come up in any searches related to that word).
I took it as good advice and deleted them without looking at them (no need to bring that filth into my world).
So, yesterday, another one of those comments landed on my blog. I went to delete it and, when the cursor crossed over it, a window popped up showing the site origin.
Guess what? Sarah was right! It was clearly a terrible, filthy site.
So -- I want to put the word out and encourage all of you to spread the warning.
We are so often intrigued by new and different cultures and I shudder to think how many people have or might click on that comment to research the comment-or.
If you don't want to post on this topic, would you at least leave a comment on any blog thread that you see those links/comments? Let the blogger know of the issue?
And, always use the 'delete forever' option so the comment and link are taken off.
Our world is full of so much goodness, but situations like these just make me sad.
Question: Were you aware of this? Is there anyway to block these comments (you know, like you can filter out your e mail)? AND PLEASE don't use the p*rn word in any comment ... again, trying to keep this blog record clean.
