How to piss me off

1) Run Akismet on your blog

2) Don't even put up a contact form or some other way I can reach you once I invariably get tossed in your spam, and never check your spam folder.

 

For bonus points, have a plugin like that checkbox that says "I am not a spammer", but don't disable Akismet.

 

Sorry for the rant guys. ;) In the interests of humane comment policies, please ensure there is a way for your commentators to reach you, especially if you run a ham-crazy plugin like Akismet.

Thanks! :)

Or how about asking for help promoting a post, yet not having any social sharing on any posts on the site.

My latest pet peeve – having the "subscribe to comments via email" box automatically checked. Then having no way to unsubscribe from the stupid thread, so I get emails for days.

1. When I cant comment with my website link.

2. when subscribe to comment check box is automatically checked.

3. When someone offers 'excellent content' with commercial link, as a guest post.

4. When some unknown fellow wants to exchange blogroll.

5. When my comment remain "waiting for moderation" state for days 

6. Seeing exact opposite things commented by same person at two different blogs

 

OK, now need to do something else.

My question is, what are you planning to do with the list? (Honest question.) I have never been able to think of a reason to hoard a bunch of email addresses.

I'm with you on that one. Sometimes I do like to subscribe, but that should be an option requiring reader choice, not made automatic. Anyone having that automatically checked – please stop!

I use Akismet, but I also use Conditional Captcha.  It helps catch the legit comments that Akismet puts in spam jail.

I don't think I have any of these things but…

 

….the thing that really annoys me most is pop-ups asking me to subscribe every three seconds. I go to blogs to read and enjoy them and this is so 'in your face'; and so 'loud'.

Or newsletter signup or any pop up.  Sure fire way for me to stop visiting or soley read through RSS and never actually visit the site or comment.

Other things that tick me off are these new commenting systems livefyre or disqus where there is no option to just enter my name/email/url (ONCE – EVER).  If you force me to make an account or use my twitter or FB ID, i'm outta there never to return.

I don't enjoy that one either, and also the one that Marissa mentioned that they just completely mess up the experience on mobile!

Both LiveFyre and DISQUS are supposed to support that, but maybe the blog owner needs to enable the option. I'm supposed to have it enabled — does my site still tick you off in that regard? :)
