Posting contact details in comments.

    I think this is more a moral/personal issue than a HP rules one (correct me if I'm wrong).

    If you have a comment appear for approval that contains someones contact details (email or IM information) do you approve it? If it's on topic of course.

    I guess I've seen some bad outcomes from people spamming their information all over the internet. Is it our place to monitor this or just let them write what they want as long as it's appropriate to the hub?

    Just wondering what other hubbers do!

      I don't approve comments with contact details in them - I assume the person is too naive to know better themselves, so I feel it's my responsibility to protect them.

      I think you shouldn't approve such comments.

    I do not approve any comment that has detailed information in it. wink

      I don't approve comments with contact information, but I have no problem with comments containing a link to a service-related website.

      I get a lot of these comment where someone will briefly remark on the hub and then leave their email address to want to get to know you more. Usually, the comment is 'wow' or something of the sort, followed by personal details. I just delete.

      I used to leave them but when I couldn't post a backlink on their site, I now delete them...hmm

      Spammers aside, there's also occasionally someone who doesn't realize it isn't the wisest thing to do - so for any number of reasons, I wouldn't approve any.
