Strange comment on my Hub

    I have my settings so that I have to approve comments.  When I looked on the feed I saw a comment some nut made.  I quickly went to that Hub and denied that comment.  My question is how come it got into the feed for all the world to see?  She was thanking me for the magic potions I sent to her!

          lol

          In that case, you were right to delete. Our comments are for satisfied customers only. big_smile

          So, what do your potions do? I might be interested. big_smile

            I did a product review on a back pain reliever.  Had nothing to do with potions.  She went on to say that she had spent a lot of money with "my" company on love potions and none of them worked.  She wants her money back.  I think she's a NUT.

              I think you are right.

              I agree with sunforged. This is minor and easily fixed. Don't lose any sleep over it. smile

                No, I won't lose any sleep, but I was just curious as to how it happened.  Thanks.

              Mary, I sometimes check out a site called ripoffreport dot com, where people complain about companies ripping them off.

              There are always a bunch complaining that the potions and spells they have purchased don't work.  Even when they've gone back 5 or 6 times, buying more love spells or whatever, they STILL don't work!

              People can be amazing creatures.

                  I just went there.  Fun place to read about ripoffs.  Thanks!

                    Yeah - like Paradigm, I like it.  You can even search for local companies, which I have found useful before.

                I know it's off topic, but I like that site.

                Here's another backlink for them, though they don't really need it.

          lol  x 2!   Your argument in favor of blocking her comment is unassailable!

    If your settings are to allow comments then all 224 of your followers could have seen the comment. In the scheme of things, I would guess that means, less than 5 people possibly saw it.

    If you change your comment settings to allow for approval first, that will never happen again.

    still .. "all the world" wont see stuff in the HP feed

      That's what suprised me. I do have that setting that comments have to be approved.

        If you are sure that you had set it properly, then proceed to http://hubpages.com/forum/4

        And post:

        "Unapproved comments are showing on feed. Full thread at http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/90236 "

        Or send email.

        Or not. smile

        Then most likley only your personal view of the feed showed the comment.

    This comment was NOT from a Hubber; but from an outside source.  Maybe I should be glad the seach engine is picking it up, huh?

    I thought each Hubber's feed was uniquely tailored to their choices (Hubbers they follow, forum threads, questions, etc.).  If that's so, then this comment showed up in your feed because you are the Hub author, but didn't show up in anyone else's feed.  But I understand that I could be wrong about that.

      Or you could be right. Someone should do a test, if suitably inspired.

      I'll bet you are right about that!  Guess I panicked when I saw that comment in the feed.  I'm not going to think about it anymore (unless I get another one)
