Do you agree or disagree with the new suggestions for deleting and editing comments? Why or Why not?


So now it turns out that we should have been deleting comments all along! Google drops our page rank because of bad comments - comments that do not ADD to the hub, Q&A, or Forum posts. Will you agree with the new suggestions or disagree and leave all the trashy comments around to hurt your rankings?

    HP staff is limited by the sheer volume of bad comments and commenters. We are all going to have to do our part to clean up the comments around here. Help them to help us.

    I think it depends on if one is writing here to earn some money, or if they are here as a hobby, or if they are here to find friends, or here to troll. It's a difficult decision for most of us. But HP has a point about editing comments.

    I think you are on the right track. We need "beneficial" comments, not crap from trolls and argumentative people.

    We do need the power to delete forum comments. They are some of the worst offenders for bad comments and trolls.

    Bad comments do often stimulate more comments, but that can also mean a penalty from the search engines.
