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.

It is important to actually read the hub you are commenting on. It seems that every time I publish a hub I get at least one comment saying something that proves they didn't read the hub. In the future I will be deleting...
