Sorry if this is obvious, I just can’t get my head around it ;0(
It’s actually quite tricky to explain. I’ve tried to write this a
couple of times, maybe somebody will get in with a good explanation
before I post this.
Ajax commenting is the slide. If you are using a browser with
matter if you have the box checked or not.
my browser then I won’t see that slide. If I allow non ajax
commenting then I can still comment.
If I tried to submit a comment to a site from my PPC or from a
ajax commenting then I couldn’t. I’d get an error and the comment
wouldn’t be submitted.
Spammers don’t use browsers. They use applications that target the
and CSS styling because that is a waste of resources and would slow a
spam run down … they don’t need that info to spam. So when they
try to submit a comment to a Typo site that has non ajax commenting
disabled it’s the same as if they were trying to submit a comment
Does that make sense?
