I had a difficult time approving comments from my Account page:
Then, when I finally got one approved, I went to the Hub to make a reply and my reply posted 3 times! I removed the extra ones, but I'm afraid to comment on anyone else's Hub because the same thing might happen.
Yes, there seems to have been issues here of late with comments and spam comments. Then people not being able to comment on hubs as after one types the comment then hits post, it does not post and just jumps to the top of the pages. This happened when I published a hub over the weekend. It was finally fixed. Team HubPages said there was a major bug. It has caused several types of glitches as links taking you to a totally different hub when clicked on. Then Groups not available but that has just been fixed a few hours ago.
That is the same message I was getting all weekend.
I did some testing and confirmed that the approved filter is timing out in some circumstances for comment moderation.

@Writer Fox Are you still seeing that error? Is it related to a specific action or comment on a particular Hub?
I'm wondering why you needed to go to the hub to reply. Are you finding that you can't reply from the global comment management page after approving a comment?
I was afraid it wouldn't work today because of the problems I had getting the comment approved. So, I went to the Hub to make my reply. (I thought I could out-fox the bug!)
You don't need to out-fox anything. You ARE the Fox!
I have missed this particular bug.
I have another problem in the same area of my account. For months now I can't manage to open the page that shows APPROVED comments. I need to open this page as I save it as a source of reference and memory.

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...

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...

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...

In the past week I've had three different comments that I approved, and then they went back to unmoderated status and I had to approve them again. It hasn't been happening with all of my comments, so far just those three -- has anyone else had this happen?

When I get a comment on one of my hubs I usually reply, at least with a thanks if I can. I notice some do and others do not reply to comments.I am wondering if there is any reason for not replying apart from being too busy to do so? Is it bad for bandwidth? does it score against your page rank,...

Everybody is wondering how the team plans to remove the editbots from the stats pages. Apparently they are there to indicate that edits have been made so that writers can check their articles for correctness, but there are many questions about when and if they will be removed as there seems...
