      They most likely have their settings set to such that your post will not show up until they've approved it. smile

    You only joined 14 minutes ago.  If you tried to comment before that, it might also be possible they had set comments so only registered members could comment.

    Authors have a few options they can choose in regards to receiving comments on Hubs.

      Thank You!
      I did eventually figure that out, before I found this page, but can you briefly explain what the Author's options are with regards to Comments and why an Author might have their Hub set so rigid.

      I posted a Comment which was published (I saw it), and now it's disappeared. Previous Comments left by other Followers have also disappeared.

        Comments can be deleted by the Hub author.  For example, comments containing spam links are almost always deleted.

    That happens to me sometimes when I try commenting using my android phone.  It's never happened with my laptop though.

    Some authors choose to moderate their comments. It gives them the chance to look at them, and approve them before they are seen by the rest of the world. It is helpful to prevent a bunch of spammy comments, and to keep vulgar language, and offensive comments from showing up, as well.

      ThanQ! That makes sense.
