Posting a comment to self Promote? I thought it was a no-no

    I am not complaining, I am so happy to be here. But someone read one of my hubs and posted a comment. In the comment said hubber placed three links, to his stuff. I thought that was against the rules.

      It is - I would deny the comment unless it really adds value to your hub.

      It is entirely your choice to delete it or not. I tend to delete those and mark them as spam, unless they are really good resources. He wouldn't be an "expert" in networking would he? lol

    I would consider it as spam if its irrelevant.

      no I will go read his hubs and then decide, I was just so surprised as no one had done it before. He has a couple of months on me here.  I haven't slept and I don't want to alienate anyone or cause trouble. Maybe he just needs help promoting himself.

    Personally I'd inform this person of the violation. Then give him the proper way to link to another hub. If that didn't work I'd hunt them down, chop off the typing fingers........ Okay, a little too violent. Just delete the comment'

    PS only kidding about chopping off fingers. Please no emails.

    agreed, delete the comment.  If there is nothing substantive about your hub, just "great job" by the way here are three of mine,

    Get rid of them.  You aren't alienating anyone by doing this.  It is simply rude on their part.

      I was going to, but I am a softy. I put a comment that I was about to delete him as a shameless selfpromoter, but he has a hub about money. He is serving in Iran, and in his hub he gives links to some of the greats around here who have helped him on his way. I will e-mail him though. That page is a tribute to my brother, and my whole family will be reading it eventually.

        Yes, I haven't slept, I've been writing controversy. I was too tired to think. I am glad it will help others.
