    Some people make you wonder

    So I commented on a do follow blog and wrote a few lines on topic of his post. A couple of days later I come back and find my post there (good). But the link anchor in my "name" field was changed to "Mark" which isn't my name. Then the link was changed to the non-www version. Thirdly just for good measure the guy changed my good comment to a meaningless one liner that sounded seriously spammy!

    So it really seems like this low light just had a lot of fun by not totally deleting my post straight away but just wrecking it in his own little way. Some people are just plain sad or have too much time on their hands.

    Wow, that's pretty bad. Have they done this on other comments as well? That's really strange that someone would take the time to do that.

    yeah must be a major league weirdo. Can't tell with the other comments since I didn't see them when they were first entered. It was certainly the last comment on his blog from me lol

    Sorry that happened to you, but I wouldn't worry too much about one link. Too much time on their hands, and doing something that is not even productive it sounds to me.

    Seems very bizarre for someone to do that. (Unless you expected him to believe that your surname was pills, first name cheap ).

    I'm grateful for anyone that takes the time to post a comment on my blog and always respond to any questions as it encourages people to come back, read more articles and post more comments.

    All this person will do by these actions is force any users he is getting to go elsewhere.

    Haha, the owner of that blog must have nothing else to do. Maybe ALL the posts there are editted that way.

    Can you post that blog here? Or you can just forget that blog forever.

    An incoming link can't do you any harm (or your competitors could just add your link to spammy neighbourhoods to destroy your rankings), so write off the 5 minutes it took to write the comment and don't worry about it.
    I agree though, seriously strange behaviour!
