Anonymous Harassment

    Is there a way to control, mitigate or eliminate altogether - the ability to log in as a guest simply to make irrelevant and harassing comments on a targetted hubber's pieces (hubs)? 

    Yes, denying the comment is easy, but should we really have to devote any of our writing time to babysitting our hubs?

      If you're being harassed by someone leaving comments I would contact HP staff. The offender will no doubt leave their IP address and maybe that would be a way to block them.  Good luck. smile

        Thank you, Hollie.  The thing is, I know exactly who the clown is who's doing this.  In his "legit" entity, he with whom I had a rancorous political exchange, right after I got very aggressive (had in flesh Counsel ready) because he was not punished for conduct the worse than mine (yes, I dropped the f-bomb a couple times) which got me an involuntary 3-day hiatus from the forums, and I feared my inability to rebut him would have financial losses for me (the teeth of my very-nearly filed civil action.  Still, I know VERY well that "knowing" and proving are apples and oranges.

          I know it can be difficult to do, but I would just ignore and delete the little ***** comments. MM's right, they get off on your attention and love it when they know that they have caused you stress. Think naughty, malevolent child, when they do not get the attention they so crave, and have not caused the level of harm they wish, they implode somewhere else.

          That's when you get the last laugh. smile

      You can disallow anonymous comments either by editing the comments capsule in a particular Hub, or on all of your Hubs using the global comment capsule settings available here:

        RIGHHHT!  I forgot about that.  I must have "mis-membered" it as an AC feature, but the they've changed names and gotten a whole new system, and so I'm once aagain behind on the learning curve.  I will make that setting change PRONTO!  TYVM!

    A degree of babysitting comes with the territory on hubs.
    But usually if you deny the harrasser's comments a couple of times (don't fan the flames) they'll lose interest and go away.

      Oh, man.  You mean stay focused and mature an' all that?  But, Mighty Moooooooooooommmmm!  wink   You are right, of course, and I have chosen that course of action (denying, and not reacting).  LH is being persistent, but I have a teeeeeeeny bit of a stubborn streak, myself!  wink  Thanks for the counterbalance and wisdom.
