Hope this is not already answered somewhere, I did look around with no luck. If someone leaves a comment that is normal such as "interesting hub", why are they identified as a spammer over the approve/deny button?
Is it OK to approve their comment if it seems perfectly fine?
Thanks in advance.
Same thing happened to me today, when someone left a two-word comment on one of my hubs, and it was marked as spam. I approved the comment since, like you Mardi, I thought it looked perfectly fine. However, I did notice the same hubber leaving similar two-word comments on other new hubs I visited today, so now I'm wondering. . . .
Some people leave little throw away comments like that on every hub that gets published trying to drive traffic to their own hubs. They're basically the same people that become fans of everybody that joins HP. I don't think it will hurt you any to approve their comments, but I don't know that there is any particular benefit either.
People who join everyones fan club , get their hub scores lowered tremendously and always make posts in forum wondering why their own scores are at a low. This is because of good and bad neighbourhoods, if we join lot of very low scored or new hubbers continously who are not at all creating good hubs, it will lower our scores deeply.
Spam comments are made when some one posts a url or the same words repeatedly in lot of hubs. It is our decision to approve them or not.
If they leave a 2 word comment like:
then that is spam

Hi All,When I first started I read a Hub or saw in the forum that it was frowned upon to add a self-promotional link to one of my hubs in another Hubbers comments section! For example a comment like:I like your...

Do you accept or deny comments that leave a link to someone's website?I don't mind people leaving a link to one of their hubs but I don't know about people leaving a link to their own website.

Do you approve or deny negative feedback that includes insulting comments on you HubPages?
