For the past few days some of the comments that I've made on my hubs and some of the comments from visitors to my hubs have posted two or even three times. I've seen double posts in the comments section of other people's hubs, too. When I'm making the comment I know that I haven't clicked the "Post Comment" button more than once. The comments section on a hub doesn't look very good with all the "deleted" remarks in place of the duplicate posts or with the duplicate comments left in place.
I would check for a known issue post then post to the tech support forum if there isn't one.
When commenting today, I remember a comment I made posted twice on another's hub, not sure if it was on your hub, but I did see it post twice and deleted one of the posts as it was the same comment. Is it better to delete the double posts or just leave them on there? Wonder which is better.
Thank you for the reports.
I have passed this information to our engineering team.
I've been having similar problems in the forums. When I post a comment, it tells me I already posted a similar comment. But one does get posted.
Alicia, I noticed this today when I replied to a comment on one of my own hubs. I am almost certain I only hit the reply button once but my comment appeared twice .. And it didn't give me the normal option to 'edit or delete" the comment either. I have also seen a few repeated comments on other hubs.
This happened to me on my own article. I can't figure out how to delete them. I just thought it was because I was using a tablet. Did it happen to you on PC?
Hi, everyone. Thanks for the responses. @TheDragonBringer - I'm using an iPad. If I want to delete a comment that I've made on one of my own hubs, before five minutes are up I can click "Edit" to get the Delete button. After five minutes I can click the "Moderate" button, as Faith Reaper says, to hide the comment.
I do not have double comments on my hubs. But I am witnessing repetitions of comments and even hubs in the daily newsletter that I get recently. They are informing me that a new hub has been created or a new comment has been posted twice in the same letter, that too just below the first intimation itself. I wonder why such things are happening nowadays. Today also I got two times for same post which I am showing below by copying from my mailbox.

PROBLEM: Whenever I write a hub on a controversial subject, a number of people create new, fake hub accounts solely for the purpose of posting negative comments and feedback on my hubs and/or threatening me anonymously. These new hubbers have 0 (zero) hubs and no other activity, and they are never...

I am seeing more links to an outside commercial link in my comments section. Their business will be a related one to the Hub I wrote. When I check the profile: The Hubber has maybe one Hub written about their business, a couple have not written even one Hub. In other words,...

In the past few days, I've been getting racist comments left by "visitors" - people who leave comments but aren't members of HP. For the most part, these remarks are combined with anti-police remarks and being left on my law enforcement and crime hubs; however, one or two have been left...

What do you do when people lash out at each other on your Hub? (in comments)Sometimes people have different opinions and argue in the comments section. They reply each other and it gets tense. Do you just watch the drama unfold, intervene, or delete the comments and wish you never published the Hub?

I have been writing for Hubages for over a year and I am still trying to figure out how to get my readers to comment on my articles. Is this something hubbers should even worry about?

If I view my account's Comments page, it's easy to view, approve and respond to unapproved comments. However, if I go to a new comment in one of my hubs and click Approve, I cannot reply to it directly on the comment. Instead, I have to go to my main Comments page and find the now approved comment...
