Over the past few days whenever I respond to a comment on any of my hubs, my comment shows up twice and I have to delete the duplicate. Is anyone else experiencing this? It only happens on my hubs, not when I comment on other people's hubs. What would be the cause of this? Is there a remedy for it without having to delete the duplicate comment? And is this hurting my standing in any way?
Yes, I have this almost all the time, I delete one unless I am responding to more than one comment. In which case I edit the second one to repond to the second comment.
I don't know if it hurts our standing in any way, I doubt that HP knows the answer to that.
Sorry you are having trouble posting comments.
I just tested using Google Chrome 34.0.1847.131 m in Windows and was able to post a reply comment to one of my Hubs with no duplication of the comment.
The issue you are experiencing could be a browser, hardware, or other system issue.
I would suggest starting by clearing your browser cache.
Then upgrade to the latest stable version of Chrome (you have a minor version older than the current).
Then restart your computer.
Here are some other browser trouble shooting steps as well.

Matthew, how do I upgrade Chrome? Doesn't Windows take care of that for me? In the meantime, I'll see if I can figure it out. Why does it only happen when I comment on my own hubs? Quite perplexing....
No, Windows does not automatically upgrade 3rd party software.
The link I provided above has information related to upgrading browsers including the websites for each.
You can also download Chrome directly from Google here.
Matthew, I just downloaded the latest version. Now I just have to wait until someone comments on one of my hubs to see if that fixed the problem. Thanks for your help!
If you have not done so, I would also suggest clearing the browser cache and cookies as well as rebooting the computer too. That way you can eliminate those as potential issues.
I did, Matthew. I need to wait for a new comment on one of my hubs to see if that did the trick.
I posted a comment on this Hub so you can check it out.

Thank you, Matthew. All seems to be well now. I deleted your comment and my response. Now I know what to do the next time this happens.

I have been experiencing problems trying to post comments. When I finish writing the comment it doesn't post and the screen returns to the top of the hub. Anyone in my boat?

So, I've always thought it was the polite thing to do to reply to commenters, and thank them for their time and input, and I've made an effort to do so consistently.However, I'm wondering if this is now being discouraged by HP, as there is no available comment box for replies on hubs that have been...

Do you all ever get soooo many negative comments on a single hub that you just get tired of dealing with it? If it was all positive comments that wouldn't bother me, heck I even like a good debate from time to time...but to have hundreds of comments from random people trying to shame my writing or...

For years I have been diligent about responding to questions left on my hubs. But now I've discovered comments are being published on my articles without appearing in my Comments section, so I look like I'm rude and ignoring readers who go to the effort of writing.Today I spent ages waiting for...

Is anyone else having difficulty editing comments they make on hubs? All day yesterday and on some hubs today when I have needed to open up my comment to edit it I click on "edit your comment" and the page refreshes to the top of the page. It has meant having to leave further comments...

It would be great if we received notification of new comments. I was reviewing my hubs today and found comments that I didn't know were there. This notification could be on the account page or, better yet, by email.
