HubPages is making it a point to clean up comments in Hubs, so here's a suggestion: Please make it possible to remove a link from a comment while accepting the rest of the comment.
Today, someone left me a great comment that would be a benefit to the Hub, but because they included a link to Amazon showing me what product they are using I couldn't accept it. This isn't the first time I've had this conundrum.
It would be a useful feature, in my opinion, and with all the other snipping going it seems easy to implement. Keep the comment. Snip the link.
We're currently doing a lot to identify and minimize spam comments en masse, as well as work on the new sites, so this is probably not an engineering priority right now, but I do think it's a great suggestion, and I'll present it to the Team as something to consider for the future.

I know that it is against HP rules for someone to place a link in a comment of a hub, but is it okay for someone to place a link in a comment when answering a question, even if it directs people back to their hub? ...
