Spam - I Hate to Say This But...

Off Topic today.

Recently I've gotten many comments here which are always gratifying and full of praise, but never specific. They are also "Anonymous" and contain links to advertising for pretty much everything under the sun.

So here's the deal. I don't mind an Anonymous comment as long as it is specific to the topic being responded to - meaning, it addresses something specific about what I've said in a particular daily post. I also don't object to  links to other websites contained in a Comment, as long as it is on-topic, which is Photography, and even commercial photography links are welcome.

However, all comments from an Anonymous sender which do not address a specific thing I'm writing about, and with links to any websites other than photography related will be marked as spam, and not published. I fully realize this will probably not result in stopping the influx of spam comments, but if you were truly offering a proper comment and in following up, you do not see your comment published, it is simply because I have a lot of Spam to deal with, and in doing so, I might miss the occasional good comment. Hopefully this will not be the case. I simply want to maintain the quality of this site, which means, it will be spam - free from now on.
