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.

Does anyone ever get other hubbers making comments and then plugging their own hubs by pasting their urls in the comments section? What do you do..do you allow it or deny it?
