Had an odd thing happen in a comment today

    I've been writing on HP for about 11 months now. I've seen outside links in comments, and I automatically deny them. This time, however, I received a comment with a link to another hub "kind of" on the same topic, with an invitation to comment on that hub.

    While I feel that this is bad form, I wanted to see what others think before I either deny it or reply. To me, it's the same as someone following me and asking me to follow him or her in return. What do you think?

      I think this is against Hubpage rules. I'm not sure, but someone told me that it was.

      If there is somewhat a relation of the two hubs and the other hub is of quality then you may just want to leave the comment on your hub and pay back the favor of a comment back with a link.  However, neither link will give either of you link juice as last I checked the comments on HubPages are no follow.
