but his plans still get response. He is evil and he knows it.
I read on John Chow‘s site that he is actually asking people to pay him USD10 per month to get the no-follow tag removed. That is just sooooo….blardy, typical Chinaman, blood sucker way of earning money.
The Evil Plan
For $10 per month, I will remove the nofollow tag off your comments and the link on your name. Now you donâ€™t have to get on the Top Commentators list in order to get a full link. When you sign up for this deal (for lack of a better name, itâ€™s call WP FollowMe), your link will carry the same weight as the links in the blog post. With the nofollow removed, Google will follow the link and index your blog.
I am speechless. I must make mental note never, ever to come to this stage. This just makes blogging real ugly. If you notice, there are so many no lifers who can make a comment every two or three minutes just to get on the Top Commentor list.
If you want to know, I am evil too. I have the Top Commentor plugin (in my personal blog) as well but if I see anyone commenting for the sake of giving mundane comments, I will dissed them off or just hide their links. This can easily be done on the plugin editor.
I find it distasteful to go to someone’s blog to comment just because you want your link there. What do you think? Will you ever resort to John Chow’s way of earning money? Will you pay to get a link on his site?
