Since I have to approve the comments before they show, I notice that they all come in clusters. What's curious is that there are usually 3 or 4 clustered together, written just within minutes of each other, and which sometimes refer to one of the other messages, even though they haven't been approved, yet - so nobody else can see them.
Such is the case on the blog titled 'Enchanted mirror and the BBB'. There was a post by Stephanie who claimed that she had received her products, but she was embarrassed about the recent 'cow' comment. The cow comment was actually a post that came in just a few minutes before Stephanie's and which I didn't approve and which Stephanie couldn't have seen. Then right after that 'anonymous' wrote in, congratulating Stephanie on her having received her products (anonymous couldn't have seen Stephanie's post yet) and also showed concern about the 'cow' comment. So, obviously all three comments were written by the same person, as only the same person would have known about each post.
So, we have the same person writing positive reviews for Barbara's shop and also writing nasty comments about Barbara, to gather sympathy and make it look as if someone else does it.
Pretty pathetic, if you ask me.
edit: it seems that some people still can't comprehend: There was another 'cow' comment posted 2 minutes before 'Stefanie' posted, it would have shown right above her post, if I had approved it - but I didn't. And 'anonymous' post to Stefanie was posted 2 minutes after 'Stefanie's, except she couldn't have seen Stefanie's post, because I hadn't approved it yet, it was still in my email waiting for my approval.
And 'anonymous' post refers to 'cow post(s)' plural , so she clearly knew about the 2nd cow post and she knew of Stefanie's post, even though neither one of them was showing on the site at the time that she was writing it.
