Hello all! I just wanted to do a quick post about the comment policy here at Science and Medicine – For The Rest Of Us. First of all, please see our comment page. If you have posted here before, and been approved, your comment *should* automatically show up. If this is your first time commenting here, your comment will be put into a queue, and I will have to approve it. Again, this is just for your first comment on this site.
I have been getting a lot of spam comments. Please note that I DO use Akismet – a spam filter for Wordpress. If you have a legitimate comment, and you notice your comment hasn’t shown up after 24 hours, please feel free to contact me and ask why. Most likely Akismet flagged your comment as spam. If it is legitimate, I will certainly let it pass through the filter.
One other thing – I do not have the dofollow flag enabled. This means (for all you spammers out there) that leaving your spammy addresses, or spammy names, or spammy IP addresses will do you absolutely no good on this site.
On the other hand, I would really like to reward the legitimate commentators out there with quality backlinks (if you don’t know what those are, don’t worry about it – it’s a link back to someone’s home blog). If you have any suggestions as to how to enable dofollow without being inundated with spam, please let me know!
