If you deny someone's comment does it hurt their hubber score? Does it hurt you own hubber score if you deny the comments of others? Does it hurt the hub score if the hub has a denied comment?
I do not believe so Catherine. There are many comments which have been deleted both purposely and accidentally, nobody has asked about this before.
What adds to your score some is how well that you reply to them.
I hope not! When I made the transition from Squidoo to HubPages, I inadvertently deleted all 90+ comments from one of my pages. I don't imagine I helped myself by doing that.
I don't think it affects the score. After all, if you receive spam comments, you should be able to delete them. While there is a small chance that comments do count in your score as interaction with the community, I would think that the comments you don't delete and your forum posts would offset the deleted comments.
Even if your score does drop when you delete comments, you have a high enough score that it can take a hit!
Yes, but I wouldn't want to hurt someone else's scores.
If someone is using the same comment over and over again on different posts "nice hub!", the program probably notices and does not reward the Hubber with a higher score due to community involvement. In that case, if you delete the comment, it wouldn't affect his score.
But if the program didn't catch it, it might, but I suspect that it would take a lot of deleted comments for it to make an impact. I'm sure they make sure that any one Hubber can't dramatically affect the score of any other Hubber. And depending on why you are deleting the comments, they may deserve it.

I just noticed that comments I delete from the 'comments' section on my accounts page are not being deleted from the actual hubs. One of my hubs gets spammed a lot by people posting links and email addresses for 'quack' healthcare. I have clicked the 'spam' button and then clicked...

Is it ever justified to delete reader comments?Do you ever delete comments on your Hubpages? Sometimes we get inappropriate or over promoting comments on our hubs, how do you handle the situation?

I'd like to suggest we get rid of Hubber Score - and perhaps even Hub Scores. They:- are constantly misunderstood;- cause a lot of upset and grief in the forums; and- encourage newbie Hubbers to direct their efforts in entirely wrong directionsFor instance, I've known newbie Hubbers stop...

Sometimes I come across hubs that are well written but have a glaring grammatical mistake or other error. I usually leave a note along the lines of "---- needs to be fixed up, Feel free to delete this."Just wondering if too many "deleted comments" could ever have a detrimental...

I understand it difficult times but what good will deleting hubs do? I see some of the most prolific hubbers deleting heaps of hubs. Have we lost the hope of a hubpages bounce back?

Since HP suggests that we delete irrelevant comments, I have been attempting to do so. My problem is that I may have a short string of comments, but answer the comments all in one comment capsule. For instance, I may delete comments A and C while wanting to keep B. I can do that, but in my answer,...
