Do you approve or respond to comments when the person who left the comment asks you to follow them?


I've had a few people leave comments on my hubs where they might say a few nice things about my hub, but then add "I'll follow you if you start following me". I never know how to handle these types of comments. On the one hand, I think it is usually commenters who are new to HubPages and are trying to figure things out and get followers. But on the other hand, their comment is only about them trying to build a following and generally has nothing to do with my hub. So I'm curious: When other hubbers get these types of comments, do you approve them or delete them? Do you mark them as spam?

    Thanks for your answer. I'm curious - why do you approve these comments and post them?

    Thanks, Patricia. I think your suggestion is the best way to handle these comments, but I still feel a little bit bad about it for some reason. I guess because these commenters still took the time to visit and comment on my hub.
