How NOT to Get a Link Back From the Tavern

Every once in a while, Google's spam catching software let's a post get through. More often, it catches legitimate posts, and I have to release them from the spam dungeon. The following comment dodged Google's Spam Police and actually was live for about 30 minutes:

I just found your site and wanted to say that I have really enjoyed browsing your posts.In any case I'll be subscribing to your blog and I hope you post again soon Mr. King Solomon Sword

The Mr. King Soloman Sword part linked back to a novelty store for knives, swords and such. Cheap prices and even cheaper quality.

If you think you have something that this blog's readers might be interested in, reach out to me direct. Figure out how to do it. Others do.

Trying to scam The Tavern's readers is NOT the way to do it. This means you - Jeffery R Carter on G+. 


  1. Hey, when I try to flog Echelon, possibly via Kickstarter, I'll come up and outright ask for your help.

    Yeah, that's a shameless link right there, that is.

  2. I experience the same type of links over at Hack & Slash. They try to take advantage of the wonderful resources, insightful analysis, and entertaining articles by posting a link in the comments.

    Why wouldn't they want to associate with greatness?
