Play Fair Or Get Outta Here

There are some bloggers who are putting “Likes” onto my blog posts within seconds of me hitting the publish button.  There is no way in hell that anyone can read that fast.  Something about this is fishy.  I am assuming that this has something to do with other people trying to use my blog posts to increase traffic to their own blogs.  I do not know how it works.  I could care less how it works.  It is irritating and I am doing my best to weed these out and to block them. So be advised.  If you do this kind of stuff, I find it offensive because I, myself, always read a blog post entirely before I put a “Like” on it and I expect the same courtesy in return.

  1. As you know, I have never done that with any blog I follow, John.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Some people are more worried about their stats than the quality of their posts…..they nthink if they like others will like in return….chuq

  3. 🙂 I have always said, “It is impossible to like a blog post that you have never read.”

    By the way John, there is the option available to disable the like button.

    • I just unfollow and cause all comments from the offending blogs to be automatically sent to my trash. The like doesn’t bother me. But I will never interact with them again.
