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.

πŸ“Œ About About πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ’»

What is this post about? I don’t know, it’s probably about the page or about the author, what a word author, am I an author? Cut to the chase dude, you are wasting my time! I don’t want to read about your stupid jokes! Okay, okay, Heisenberg says “Relax…” I’m writing the about, about, about, about, the word has lost its meaning thanks to me!

I created this blog several months ago, Dec 1st 2017 to be exact. What was I thinking when I created this blog? I had problems. and it stays still. I don’t know what to do at the time, I tried exploring the Reader, I’m following some blogs since I started, I have no idea what those were, I decided to sleep it off, until two weeks later I woke up and created my very first post “I need more”, what a newb words, so cringe…

A Qoder Blog

A Blog that is owned by a Qoder, or it should be A Qoder’s Blog? Qoder is my made up word.

It’s from the word “code” something that I write as a programmer – code, C+ode, I change the C with Q so it will sound more middle eastern plus R in the end to make it a noun. I hope it makes sense…

Why I’m quoting that, that is my words -_- thanks to blogging now I have some confidence to arrange some words, although the arrangement is, like what you saw, something not so… yeah you can grade it yourself.

But this blog content is changing all the time, in my early posts I write some coding related blog in WordPress.com content. You think you so smart huh? Because you are a programmer and you know “technical”, but you are really not dude… So now I’m writing some silly stuff… it can be anything. And tags, I love tags, something like awards, liebster, sunshine, versatile, etc. But if you are going to tag me in an award or something else, I’m going to make an announcement about it soon, don’t tag me just yet.

yuulye

It’s an imagination from my name July. You can call me July, like the month. I was wanting a name that is six letters, because google account need to be 6. I centered my accounts to the google account, because google is like the king of the Web! See, google also has 6 letters. I keep getting the message That username is taken. Try another. So this one is probably the best, it sounded like my name when I use google translate text to speech in English language.

I’m 27, 28 this year, I’m so old, sorry for you that have more number than me, no offence… I’m an Indonesian, Muslim, I am a computer enthusiast, a programmer, and currently a web programmer to be precise. I can create web but I often don’t have any users, so I’m making websites for myself? Starting this blog seems like the right way to get “web users”.

thanks-friends-small


I think that’s enough for now, hopefully to interact with you more… I love this place! So please don’t leave me alone, I’m begging you *dracula-voice T.T

Gravatar: The Last TrafficBender β¬‡οΈ

The WORlDpress is divided into five elements — the Follow, the View, the Visitor, the Like and the Comment. Bloggers have the ability to control and manipulate only an element because mostly they ignore the other. Only the grAVATAR is the master of all five elements.

gravatar

The ruthless Spammer wants to conquer the WORlDpress but the only blogger who has enough power, the grAVATAR, has disappeared … until now. His tribe soon discovers that Blank is the long-lost grAVATAR. Now Tiara and Soda must safeguard Blank on his journey to master all five elements and save the WORlDpress from the Spammer.

tiarasoda16 years after frozen, Blank was found and freed from the iceberg by siblings Tiara and Soda. He quickly befriended them and almost immediately attracted the attention of Prince of Spammer, who was to capture him by order of his father, Spam Lord. A newly formed Team grAVATAR set out to find a visitorbending master who could teach them, evading the Prince’s attempts to capture them on their journey to be a good blogger.

Blank was a male born in the beginning of Internet era and destined to be the grAVATAR. As the grAVATAR of his time, he was the only person capable of using four blogging arts: followbending, viewbending, visitorbending and likebending. He was also one of a select few grAVATARs, and one of the first in many cycles to learn the ancient art of commentbending, and the first grAVATAR known to have actively used the technique.

blankShortly before the beginning of the Online War, Blank was frozen in an iceberg for 16 years; he later emerged, still biologically twelve years old, into a world engulfed by war. During his absence, the Spammer had waged war upon the bloggers and managed to completely wipe out the Good hearted Bloggers. It fell to Blank, the last viewbender and the grAVATAR, to end the War by mastering all the other elements and defeating Spam Lord.

Seollenda me likey ⭐ Me likey likey likey ⭐ Me likey likey likey ⭐ Dugeundugeundugeun ❀️❀️

Do you know the reference for my post title? Let’s just not talk about it, instead I just want to use the word, likey or like. Based from urbandictionary.com likey means u really like something a lot, example in a sentence, my shoes are so cute…I likey. #like #a lot #really #likey #likes ~ by Nickeshia May 26, 2006.

In Facebook you know the reaction feature, it used to be a thumbs up button only. In Twitter or Instagram there is a love button. And for this platform there is a star button mostly in every post. This thing is like after you perform something in front of public and after that the crowd give you applause. I imagine that the feature work something like that in the real world.

In my blogger award posts I also ask question about this like thing. What does like mean to you? Now, I’m going to answer it myself…

In this WordPress.com world, I use the like feature to show my appreciation for a post, nudge people so I can appear on their notifications, reacted to them after something (for example after someone likes my thing I like back)/ showing them that I currently active, and still many more… there is always something new usage from this feature I find once in a while.

After 120 posts like in a row, I can’t like anymore post!

like-failed-small

In fact, I don’t really like reading sometimes, when I had a new post for example or when I want someone to like my post back, I do spam likes! After a while I realized that I can’t like anymore, I wonder why… I’m thinking that to do something like that is just annoying, me being annoying. I was really sad that I can’t like anymore, until something happened…

Probably an hour after my unreliable action happened I desperately trying to like again, hoping that it will work, and it did! I’m super happy… I did another 120 posts likes… and I was being sad again… and again… and again… until I realized something…

This behavior is really bad. That’s why I can’t like 1000 posts in a row! probably, or maybe not… because there is something else…

I can like comments as many as I like

This method is super effective! I can make people notice me by liking all of their comments. without limit. huahahaha! I just like the comments I don’t even read it, just like what I did to the posts. But then someone seems doesn’t notice me anymore, how can she doesn’t notice me, her notifications should be filled by my name, how can she ignore me, how, how!

Comment Likes Option

For mobile phone user, I use the one for android platform. I click the man figure menu which is Account/User/Profile/Me section, and there is a bell symbol, I see Other sub menu and a line says Comments on other sites. There a lot of options about likes! and the one that make her ignore me should be the Notifications tabLikes on my comments toggle is not blue! I’m sure of it!

For web or computer desktop user, I can do the same thing just like from mobile. But there is more options in there, like email options device options in one screen. I can’t do this no more!


I don’t know, is like a bad thing? Probably, can be, so how I’m suppose to make people notice me? Maybe giving their work in this case post writing, reading it word by word, enjoy it, is just the best method to do this, not the quickest but the most pleasant way…

Spam πŸ– Annoying Comment πŸ˜ 

I’m starting to get and be spam from few days back. Spam is a brand of canned cooked… Sorry, wrong spam. Here we go – irrelevant or inappropriate messages sent on the Internet to a large number of recipients. But reality? Not so much, maybe because that description is referred to spam in general, but I’m going to talk about spam specifically for this platform, spam comment in my site or others.

When I tried to comment on my favorite blog, I can’t seem to add any comment, she said “Yuulye where did your comment vanish?”, and then I tried to add another comment, 2 or 3 times after that still no success, after a while I tried again and this time it worked! A few days passed she told me that my comments considered as spam by the system and she approved all of those! *annoyed*

Another case, I ask my friend to read my newest post, she seems insensitive until I need to ask (but she is cute). Well, she did visit my blog to read the post and then she commented, but I don’t get any notification. I tried asking her, “why didn’t you leave a comment?” “I did” she replied and I told her that there is no comment from her *sadface*.

I was thinking, my brain? I was wondering. A day later I saw her comment detected as spam. Why didn’t I check it before, I guess it needs two incidents to make me realize! After that I periodically try to check spam comment or comments for my site in general. But I still don’t know why some comments detected as spam.

Investigation

I search for this problem, I found a resource from WordPress.com support post titled Unwanted Comments and Comment Spam, there is a point in the article that says…

Are your comments incorrectly marked as spam? Please contact Akismet support and mention that Akismet is catching your comments by mistake.

So I went to the link…

⚠️ Want to get help even faster? Don’t forget that our Plus subscription includes priority email and chat support.

Okay, no thanks! Well it’s not really that important, really small number of comments that considered as spam and I can manually check it on the spam comment section. Boring? Let’s find something interesting.

But before that, additional info that your site using Akismet or not you can go to wp-admin, comment menu, spam list, if you have a spam, try checking the History. In the comment history you can see what happen to that comment.

akismet

There it is, my investigation, doesn’t really have any good outcome, but whatever…

Why it’s called Spam?

While some have suggested that this was because SPAM (as in the Hormel meat product) is sometimes satirized as β€œfake meat”, thus spam messages are β€œfake messages”, this potential origin, while plausible enough on the surface, turns out to be not correct at all.

The real origin of the term comes from a 1970 Monty Python’s Flying Circus skit. In this skit, all the restaurant’s menu items devolve into SPAM. When the waitress repeats the word SPAM, a group of Vikings in the corner sing β€œSPAM, SPAM, SPAM, SPAM, SPAM, SPAM, SPAM, SPAM, lovely SPAM! Wonderful SPAM!”, drowning out other conversation, until they are finally told to shut it.

For short, I decided to understand spam as annoying message, in this post case unwanted comment. I’m bored, sorry if this is not as interesting as I expected…

My Question

I recently had some blogger awards, and for some of those I need to ask questions, one of my question is “What does comment mean to you?”. I cringe myself for asking that question when I read the answers. So now I’ll try to answer the question myself.

For me, comment section is a tool, a tool provided by WordPress to do something powerful, as powerful as a post, I believe. The platform also give me a hint! I just didn’t understand it soon enough…

comment-hint

But as always, I often make mistakes with this, sometimes I didn’t read the post but rushing to give a comment just by seeing the title and the comment turns out to be hurtful, inappropriate or irrelevant. Then I found a way to change that, of course to read the post before comment and the other one is be mindful. The poem from Winnie is super good!

Annoying

I actually didn’t get annoyed so easily, probably because the years I’ve spent living, but I have to make an exception.*wink* I just make the title a little bit dramatic to attract more readers, hahaha, sorry. Is the title click-bait enough?

So for you the one who accidentally read this post, don’t worry if you have anything to say to me or the blog, say it on any comment section, I would be very happy to receive it, and if your comment doesn’t appear in the place it supposed to be you can blame the Akismet not me, don’t bully me, I’m really a sensitive person…

Time Machine πŸ•°οΈπŸš‚

Is time machine real? I’m talking about a machine that can travel through time, like a 2002 American science fiction film titled The Time Machine, I watched the film in Indonesian television few years back and I pretty much liked it, or I was just hoping that the time machine really exists?

I googled “time machine” and the top result is a backup software from Apple macOS. Is it wrong that I called it time machine, I like the term and I don’t want to change that! Well if google doesn’t agree with me, I’m going to try another search engine, I’m mad at you google! But before I leave I’m gonna google one more thing “search engines”…

I used bing.com and the results are science fiction novella by H. G. Well – published in 1895, The movie and the apple. I used baidu.com I see Chinese characters η™ΎεΊ¦δΈ€δΈ‹ the results are OS X – I believe this is another software. I used duckduckgo.com and another apple. I think I’m gonna have to go back with google, but what I’m gonna say, I’m sorry google, I promise I wouldn’t use another again, unless you’re down or my country blocking the usage of you.

As a programmer I use search engine a lot, I have a task I google it, found the answer in stackoverflow and then copy and paste the code in to my work, done! Let’s get back to the topic.

Time Travel Machine

Did I use the wrong term? I think I did, so what’s the correct one? What about “Time Travel Machine”? Okay, getting some. One saying that the reality of time travel is muddled – Not all scientist believe that time travel is possible, I just couldn’t find who says it possible.

I’m not giving up, I’m still searching until I find Yes, but to my knowledge only in the forward direction. I know of two instances, one for 100 years, and the other for 300 years. I’m still struggling with the content there so I wouldn’t talk too much about it.

Is that Possible?

What is possible? time machine? time travel? time travel machine? 99% I’m sure that it’s not real yet. But I wish that it’s real and I can use it right now? For what? I made mistakes a lot it’s countless and I want to go back in time to fix that, hoping that today is not what I experienced.

100% you can visit the past, not like time travel for human though, for file! If you haven’t read my post abouthistory, well I will tell you the excerpt here. When you creating and editing a file or image or document for several times, you probably done something wrong and want to go back to previous version, you can do it with a software called version control.

I need to rethink about this… about my belief in time machine! If time machine really existed, I would have a perfect life! I don’t have to suffer for all my mistakes! All I can think is imagine the future, what happen to the future if this is what I’m doing right now, am I going to regret it?


The post is over above the line there, but if you insist to reading it till the end here we go my rambling!

If you haven’t read my Sunshine Blogger award post, please do! I will be really happy if you read it and click the links I provided. The links are my favorite blogs check them out, please! This post is also inspired by it, I talk a litte about time machine. Sunshine Blogs

I’m really sorry for cogitoesoterica from smalltimejetsetter, I will never ← neversaynever, it will take me a really long time to invent the time machine, hope you understand…
