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 ?
personally i would because it is spam and could be a phishing site
Being linked to a site like that can harm your earning potential so definitely delete it.
Thanks all! Omg I'm being so annoying posting so many questions, lol.
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.)
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.
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.
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.
Forsure, you don't want anyone else clicking on it. The site could also have a virus. Get it out a here,, go go

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? ...

I seldom find a comment to my hubs hub that include a business link. Are links allowed in the comment section? Do you reply or do you delete the comment? Thanks.

Wow! I got my first threat by a stalker/troll named "Wild Bill". He has a anonymous account that he hides behind. He stated that he won't quit harassing me until I "quit HubPages". Since I can't even...

Someone left a bunch of wikipedia links in a comment on one of my hubs. They were relevant to what we were talking about. I would rather not delete the comment unless I have to. However, I'm also aware that...

I apologize, but it seems a "Best" answer was chosen on my question when I did not choose it. I hope the HP Team can help me or someone can inform me why that happened! I noticed it via my phone...
