Because those crafty spammers somehow manage to infiltrate my hubs and leave their @#*#! Ugg boots spam on them. i swear to god if i get one more of those...
here is what my settings are:
x-Comments must be approved before they appear
x-Email me when new comments are posted
x-Only signed-in users may post comments
and yet, still they come and the comments are already there, even though i didn't approve them. something isn't right here.
my valentine's hub. oh, p.s. i deleted it. i never leave spam on my hubs.
The only 2 recent ugg comments that I see are on your New Years 2010 hub from 9 days ago. Changes to the comments capsule settings are not retroactive. Did you restrict the comments to signed in users recently, or has it been that way for a while?
really? that's about the time i started turning on comments restrictions on each hub. i just checked that hub and here are the settings that have been in place since i published it:
Comments must be approved before they appear
Email me when new comments are posted
Only signed-in users may post comments
i am not seeing any ugg comments on there though. hmm...
i did find some empty photo capsules, so i deleted them. also i am not getting notifcation of comments, even though i have that turned on. that little glitch started last week.

Currently all comments I receive on my hubs are set to be approved or denied before being published. I cannot find where I can disable it (or enable it later, if I want to).

Hi- I thought I remembered seeing a setting somewhere for comments to NOT display until approved, but now I can't recall where I saw that...provided I was not hallucinating...

I have to approve all of the comments on my hubs and I always thought that because of this, people not logged into HubPages, or not in the community, could not see them until they were approved. The other day I...

I get stuck in my ways, and continually get confused about settings. I keep seeing hubs (not mine) where the comments come in starting newest to last. Is this something we can do in our settings? Or is...
