I can understand spam comments that are links to stupid sites, gambling, porn, whatever. What I don’t get are comments that don’t even have links, or link to something completely benign like google.com. What’s the inside scoop, blogmaster Dave?
I just posted a link to a particularly good blog post on my Facebook page and someone said that my permalink URLs, that are of the form “?p=39″, are bad. What’s wrong with them and how do I fix it in Wordpress?

If I’m reviewing wineries, can I get some of them as advertisers? If I’m reviewing books, can I get authors to participate and publishers to advertise or sponsor?
