    @Beim, there is no such thing as The Internet Police.

    @roe, did the web-master promise you a backlink? Did you pay for one? What on earth are you complaining about just because he does not follow convention.

    @warll My Comment My Gravatar My opinion My Time
    as you said Convention but if more webmasters done this how would the whole Blogosphere be. There is no real problem with it but if many webmasters done this would there be any point in commenting on blogs.

    It could be worth checking in future before you comment on blogs are they linking out I thought that this would be an Interesting topic to bring up also because what is the benefit to him and why is he even doing because he allows hmtl in the comment form but I do not like to put code in my comments unless necessary because it looks like spam

    Such is the brakes with the Internet. A webmaster can do anything he likes with his own site....he could make it a dofollow then change it to nofollow if he so wishes. He could also delete all comments and links!

    I don't even have the url field on some of my blogs (on some I do, others I don't.) Frankly, comments are not supposed to be a place for people to go around just dropping their links. The primary purpose is to be just what their name implies- a place for people to share comments on the post. You really can't complain...

    Last time I checked commenting was to be part of the conversation, not to get back links.

    If the only reason you comment on a post is to get the link you probably aren't providing a comment worth a link. When you have a site with hundreds of comments on every post you are leaching a lot of link juice, especially linking both the gravatar and the name out. I only link out on the Gravatar image and not the posters name, guess I am a SCUMBAG webmaster, but one with a PR5.

    Sure but who links to a post in their the URL field of a comment? Only way someone is clicking through to continue the conversation is to include a URL in the comment which I allow provided it truly does extend the conversation.

    Not necessarily. In fact, most often probably not. How often is it that you see someone come back to your blog after following a commentator's link to add something useful and on-topic?

    Not very often but it's Competition which is also a good thing to keep you motivated

    So you are saying that in order for one to gain an advantage against competition (through that motivation), they should help the competition out with a free link? That logic seems a little distorted :p

    And what about those who can stay motivated anyway? Maybe that "scumbag" webmaster makes 1000s per day off his blog and that is enough to motivate him- he doesn't need to look at his competition. Sorry, but you are making a very weak argument.

    There technically is police on the Internet but they focus on things like criminals not people acting devious. Either way there is not much you can do about it unless you know of any actual crimes he's committed because then you could have the police arrest him :p
