SO YOU LIKED MY POST, MY ABOUT PAGE, MY COMMENT…..?

I LIKE YOU!
I LIKE YOU!

In a previous post, SO YOU LIKED MY POST?, I expressed considerable ambivalence about the like function. There is no restriction on its use by spammers and trolls and various other troublemakers. Thus, the fact that spammers now like everything they can get at does not surprise me much.

Nevertheless, I am still somewhat puzzled by people who like what I have posted when I in fact know they don’t. I suppose they do it for the same reason as the spammers. By pretending they are what they are not, they want to bring unsuspecting people to their websites.

There is also another possibility. Frustrated trolls may just want to remind me and their other victims they are still around. That thought actually caused me to chuckle. The gravatar of one of guys I kicked off my blog refers to an Egyptian pharaoh. It is long time since that pharaoh been around.

So what have I learned. Be wary. The Internet is a wonderful place except when it is not. If we don’t recognize the gravatar, there is a good chance that clicking on it will just take us where we did not want to go.

Anyway, while it is thoughtful to “like” what others post, we should not expect anyone to click on an unfamiliar gravatar. If we want a visit, we must now do what a spammer can’t do and what a troll won’t do. We must leave a thoughtful comment.

  1. When I have read something someone has posted, and I have nothing intelligent to say about it, or don’t have time to comment, it’s a great convenience to be able to click “like” to at least let them know I was there and I appreciated what they posted. That’s why non-WordPress blogs are so annoying — there’s no “like” button, so you if you want to let the blogger know you were there, you HAVE to leave a comment… and some of them make it next to impossible to comment. I gave up even trying on most of them, because it was so irritating to spend time composing a comment, only to find that it couldn’t be posted.

    1. That can be a problem. I suppose that is one reason I tend to habitually visit the same blogs. Yet when I visit a different blog, it is because they left a comment I like on mine or somebody else’s blog.
