I have been running Delta Points now for 14 months. I so appreciate every single day getting personal e-mail’s from readers who thank me for the blog, for my work, and say my blog is the 1st thing they read each day and check it several times a day to see what is up. This is truly overwhelming and gratifying and a huge responsibility. I thank you all for the support of the blog.
Yesterday, I put up a post about what Chase may be thinking and trying to find out about “US” to be able to focus offers that we will like. Very smart. They (Chase Corp.) are working to keep us as happy customers and to make sure they get many new ones.
However, I also need to be even more careful about what I allow to be posted on the blog. My blog, unlike some others, is NOT an open forum. As I clearly state this in the “about me” section that I DO proudly censor comments. I DO proudly dump comments that just say: Rene you are worthless or the blog stinks and the like. I run a positive, constructive blog. If all these types want to do is complain, they should please stop reading the blog (it is free ya know).
My spam filter does catch literally 1000′s of spam comments a week. But I also see the “IP address” that is the location of the comment, and if things look fishy I check where they are (like say Eastern European countries or others) before I post them. These sad types seem to have nothing better to do with their lives than to cause us harm for who knows why.
Anyway, I want to apologize for posting the 70,000 point possible card option yesterday. I should have checked to see that the commenter worked for Chase (and I confirmed this via e-mail later on). What I should have done is taken the time to walk into my local Chase and checked to see if this offer is real and anyone can have it; that would have been responsible blogging. I just trusted and said, WOW, and posted. I will be more vigilant in the future. I hold no ill will against the commenter and he has e-mailed me several times I do believe he did this in good faith, not as Chase trying to use the blog for other means.
Anyway, be sure to check back later today as I do have some fun swag to give away to make myself feel better than I do now! Thanks all – René
