The first time I posted duplicate comments I used "Deny" to get rid of them. Does the system count that against me -- as denied comments, possibly spam? The next time it happened, I left them. I'd like to get rid of them.
Should I contact the help desk? Based on the FAQ, denied comments can affect the commenter badge -- I'm trying not to trip on all the gew gaws here, but I'd like to know if denying my own comments might be a problem.
(I use a laptop for most of my HP activity and it's slower than my desktop -- if I'm not thinking, I click again when the comment doesn't post and end up with two or three of the same comment. I know -- just stop that.)
I don't see why, but if it has an effect it has to be negligible. Delete away, they look terrible lying there.
Denying comments doesn't work for or against you. So, do as you please.
This does happen with a glitch in the system... comments gets posted twice... i just delete them forever.. don't m ark them as spam however...
I know what you mean. It's just that when my response to a reader posts twice in comments, I can only accept or deny. I'm going to go ahead and use deny to remove them. It's probably not a big deal, it's just that the FAQ mentions denied comments are a factor in commenter level.
Thanks for your response.

I got a spammy comment (one of those spellcaster advertisements) on one of my hubs and even though I keep hitting "deny" the comment is still on it. Is there a special trick to denying comments or is...

I was just checking my stats when I noticed that a hub I published on 1-7-07 has been flagged and incurring a HP penalty for duplicate content. It's my highest earning hub and HP giving me a penalty-and then...
