...I note there's a lot of smart people writing like "...if you look carefully through the glass...", "...Please note the little spot near the window....", and so on...Guess it's a smart way to click one pic, don't you think ? Will try it on my next uploads....

Quoting Vir380 (Reply 3): the editors are actively looking for and deleting such smart comments
Wrong. As clearly stated on several occassions, we are not and have never been actively looking for them.
But when we come across obvious hit seekers, we will remove them, certainly if they're plain stupid or even misleading (which they often are).
The picture should do the talking and the hitseeking, not some silly and far-fetched comment.

It is amazing how gullable people are in a sense. A few years ago I put a comment on a photo which simply said "Let me know if you like this photo by viewing the large version". I didn't do it as a boost to my hits, I did it to see if people really would simply open the image becasue the comment told them to and, although I have long removed the comment you can see it worked:-

LIPH : I certainly hope that after all these well-intentioned replies, you have reversed your decision to resort to using such hit-seeking tactics.
I absolutely find it silly that one should make a totally worthless reference to the pilot looking down the runway when entering it - of course he should. Just like saying that the pedestrain is looking up the road before crossing it.
Many have resorted to such tactics - often when it is not needed and the picture is great as it is. As for me, you could be sure that I was not among one of those hits. As a personal decision, I NEVER view a shot where the photographer employ such tactics - even when the picture itself was quite nice.
Ben : That shot was nice and worth every of the 7000+ hits.

I dont see the need for hit hunting its silly to put such comments, but for those that get really pissed off at seeing them they should browse the latest additions/most popular and select 'photos only - 15/page' that way every photo gets viewed on the basis of how it looks and you cant be swayed by what someone has written
