    Hi guys,
    SORRY I have another question.
    I get comments from random non HP people which is fine, but today I clicked on one of their names and it links me to a porn site (I think) should I remove these comments ?

      Being linked to a site like that can harm your earning potential so definitely delete it.

        Annoying people are never the ones who ask questions - they're the few who refuse to listen to the answers given (and you don't appear to be one who rejects good advice when given.) smile

        Oh, and definitely remove comments like that. Adsense will drop your account if they find a porn link on your page - even if you didn't put it there. For them, letting it remain is just as bad as placing it there yourself. smile

        Also, make certain your comments are set to be approved by you before being displayed. In doing so, you guarantee that no baddies will display before you have a chance to delete them. smile

        Also, you want to deny links to gambling sites, sites promoting violence ... basically, any links that take the reader to material not allowed on Hubpages ...

    Yeah and also if people leave a comment and you can't see what the url is that they link to is another comment to delete, because they could link to anything!!

    You can check the first check box in your comments capsule, and then nothing will appear until you allow it. All my hubs comments capsules are set up like that now as I have grown very tired of people slapping in a "Wow! Great Hub" or some such, just so I'll leave their link there.

    I always follow any outside link to see who they are and what they're peddling before I allow any comment.

    Those are spam comments, so you should remove it.
