    Should people hope to generate links then they really should at the very
    least have the common sense to write a topic related and readable
    reply. All comment spam does is hurt your backlinking efforts
    and generates useless backlinks. The only way to be a success is to
    befriend other bloggers who have blogs of similar subject
    matter and generate genuine targeted traffic by posting
    a well thought out reply. You never know future commenters might even give this some thought
    prior to commenting after me, Thank you.
