thank you page for the real people who spend time commenting and a backhanded thanks to those who spam.

A Quick Thanks.

To my real commenters and the spammers.

Since I can not moderate my pages, in terms of comments that have no point, I think it is time to say thanks.

1) Thanks to those wikinut writers who do spend a lot of time writing great comments on my pages. This means a lot when I can not be online all the time. You are the wikinut community and you are why I choose to write here. Thanks.

2)No so much thanks, okay no thanks, to the people who insist on spamming my pages. It is not like most people do not notice. In fact I wish that this would be the one thing which i could do. Stop you from spamming.

It seems that my pages must be of interest, as I am getting spam. Still, I'd sooner have people who have a mind and a comment of value to write a comment. Not that I'm sure you will think of that, but thanks none the less.

Why?

Because here on wikinut I do get points for people who write a comment, so in a way you've done me a point serivce. I think I can at least thank you for the points.

I'll say this, spam is bothersome and looks bad, and this is not only found on my pages, but leaves a mark on everyone elses. Thanks wikinut for not allowing links to these pages or I'd be in real trouble!

John.

Hi John, oh how I agree with you about this spamming! It spoils our pages and is just plain annoying....I have complained about mine too, the only good thing that comes out of it is the points...One of the people I follow had 5 spam one after another...Please Wikinut, do something about this as it is getting worse each week! Thanks for info Jerry....Thank you John for posting this, you have written what the majority of us think...I am indebted to you...

it really does look bad and I hope wikinut will get this under control. I must not be as popular, as it has been awhile since I was hit but, I hate to go on others pages and see it. It only makes wikinut lok bad and I can see where it could make the average reader go else where. Nice read. Thank you for sharing.:)

I hope no one ever buys anything from the spammers. I never will. I'd be happy to live without the points I get from it. Nice article. thanks for sharing.

Spams for me can really be funny. I just ignore lol... But, I can agree with you that spams destroy the article's issue. While everyone is commenting on how good your content is, someone would post some site he he... Thanks for the read.
