The Spam Trilogy: πŸ’¬ Comment, πŸ‘ Like & πŸ“‘ Follow

After writing a little about Comment and Like, this is the last part of the trilogy I was thinking from the beginning, wasn’t I? First, let me describe what trilogy means because this is not an everyday word, I think.

Trilogy

A group or series of three related things. The first time I used this term is when I know about front-end web development technologies which are HTML, CSS, JavaScript. Okay, that is not for everyone let’s find another. What about movies? The Dark Knight Trilogy (Batman Begins (2005), The Dark Knight (2008), The Dark Knight Rises (2012)), The Godfather Trilogy (I watched only two movies, I don’t really understand them), Toy Stories, Spider-Mans, etc.

Metallica’s The Unforgiven songs: The Unforgiven, The Unforgiven II, The Unforgiven III, and I think there are many more trilogies out there. Why trilogy? Because some things are just too big for one, they can be four, five, and so on. I like to make this post as one of my trilogy posts.

My previous posts are Spam πŸ– Annoying Comment 😠 for comment and Seollenda me likey ⭐ Me likey likey likey ⭐ Me likey likey likey ⭐ Dugeundugeundugeun ❀❀ for Like. Those posts are based on my own experience from blogging in WordPress.com. Just like the title, it’s more about spam I’ve done with those three tools.

The Three Tools

How I make the Comment, Like and Follow as one trilogy? Other than main components of blogging in this platform (post, site, title, description, etc.), I consider them as a group of tools to get readers for my content. You can also see if you use notification. There are five items actually: All, Unread, Comments, Follows, Likes. I can’t include All, and Unread is for the post – You’re all caught up! Reignite the conversation: write a new post. And that leaves me with the three.

Comment is the most used tool for spamming in my opinion. I can also give you fact that this blog has more than 50 spam comments right this time when I write this post. From what I know, the spammer wanted to gain traffic for their online content by spreading their links so that their site or blog get sources of referrals.

Like, the difference between Comment and Like as spam tools is Like need to be an insider, while Comment can be done by the outsider. Insider here is WordPress.com user and outsider is an online content owner (doesn’t need a WordPress.com account).

Spammer Limit

WordPress.com is a really great blogging platform. They are limiting the numbers for likes, comments and even follows. I know this because I’ve done those things. When I like about 100 posts in an hour I can’t like another in that hour. When I comment on many blogs my comments are considered as spam. Follow is like Like, there is a limit in an hour. These numbers are not exact, I’m too lazy to switch accounts and do other things to check these again, sorry.

And that is what makes this platform very good, in my opinion. This is so far the best experience of blogging I have. These things just make me realize that there are still so many things I need to learn and understand.

I Do Spam Follow

From some lines above I think you already know that I do spam follow. What do I consider as spam follow? When I don’t even read the content first, just blindly click the follow button. Why? because I want more for my blog. How does it work? a simple follow back. And it works! But this is also my biggest regret in blogging along with other of my spamming activities.

Now I have more than 2000 blogs in my subscription list. I barely use my reader feeds, it doesn’t work anymore. There are new posts every second. It becomes a distraction. I wish I didn’t do all the spam. I am really sorry for those who get my spam.

A proper apology requires three steps.

  • Step One – An admission of wrongdoing. Amy, I was wrong.
  • Step Two – A promise never to repeat said action. Amy, that action will never be repeated, and that’s a promise.
  • Step Three – An earnest request for forgiveness. Amy, I hope you can forgive me, and I hope you do it right now, ’cause there’s an Uber waiting downstairs, and I don’t want to repeat this apology nonsense with my driver Ganesh.

    1. I always wanted to write “honest” post but not sure if I can tell it right, even till now. I just don’t know if what I am doing now is right, but I think I tried my best to stick to my words, let me know if I am not 😁

    1. You’re most welcome 😊
      I don’t know which spam you’re talking about but asking the help desk is a way to go, it’s a forum post, isn’t it? Assuming we’re talking the same thing πŸ˜‚
      The point I tried to make from this post is I was too focused on numbers that I ignore anything else and spread spamming πŸ˜…

      1. .. already almost forgot until I got this replyβ€” that time I was on psychological trap but now maybe not so hard to detect – not spam but sometimes I have avoid to read some with link β€” or maybe just got attentioned … read your previous one as well – the origin of the term of SMAM was from the pork ham… don’t know why but had never thought about .. the contents was interesting .

        β€”- no need to response this – suppose better to write to further posts. Just like is also ok. Good lucks !

  4. What is the purpose of this post actually? Asking for apology or telling about what you want to tell about spamming that brings fortune to your blog or what?

    #Sorry, if I get wrong your mission of blogging πŸ™‚

    Liked by 2 people

    1. Well, apology? Yes. Telling about spamming? Yes. Techniques for getting numbers? Yes. I’m sorry, since it’s been few days since I posted it I’m not really sure about another purpose, but these three points should cover it, I hope πŸ˜…

      Don’t be sorry, my reader’s comments are precious to me, I would be happy to answer anything 😊
