just when I think I know something---- getting ready to pub 2d hub (yeah, I'm not as prolific as many newer than I am. Noticed that all comments (and I needed and appreciated all of them!) on first hub show status under approval/deny show "deny" (horribly noticeable), yet I had hit the approved button for each one of them! Weird to me. Like seeing "approved" for each comment-good or bad. I need 'em. Yet it looks like I'm denying each comment. What am I doing wrong?
You have done nothing wrong, simply misunderstood. The comments are featured on the hub. The "deny" button simply means that you can remove comments anytime, and that will remain there forever. Sometimes, relationships change, people's feelings about a comment change, and so on.
I'm a bit confused, but it sounds like you're saying that UNDER the status, it says deny?
the status of a comment is next to it (same line). The "deny" button UNDER the status is a button if you change your mind and wish to deny an approved comment. Your readers will not see this button.
I might add that the button is not visible to anyone but you. You can verify this by logging out and then going to your hub - you will not find the button there.

I am curious how other hubers deal with comments made by others on their hubs. I don't want to censor people or delete comments I disagree with, but at the same time I'd like to promote healthy discussion on my...

I just learned that administrators will publish any comment we don't promptly decline so moderation will not protect hubs from abusive comments if we are away from HubPages for more than a few days.How can I get the...

I just notice that a comment was approved on one of my hubs on Feltmagnet. It said "Status: Admin Approved. ip: 188.8.131.52". That's not me. I have all my hubs set so that I have to moderate...
