And a Happy Thursday Morning. Much ado about hub comments in the forums I see.
Don't you want to control the comments your readers make? I like to see them first and respond.
I have a lot of comments which are good and useful but which have terrible grammar and spelling errors (ironic since many of my Hubs are about how to write!). Ever since I've learned these errors count against me, I've been deleting them but I wish that we could correct the errors without otherwise interfering with the comments.
I don't have any comments to moderate and deleted just a few spam comments, thanks to you paradigmsearch. I remember last year (or maybe it was 2014) when you pointed out the 'comments' section on our 'my accounts' page and suggested we clean up our comments. Thanks to your forum advice back then, I didn't have hundreds to go through this time around. You're a helpful hubber.
Just as you were a big help to me when I started, jansares. Thank you for that!
JanShares is indeed a good person. The world needs more like her. If I'm ever in D.C. (never going to happen), she gets hug ambushed.
As for HubPro slaughtering our comments via denying, I still think it is a good idea. It's getting so one doesn't know what's what re: seo. Got to defer to the experts.
Dah..Hubpro schubpro..Google schmoogle..I don't even care anymore. Let's meet up, join forces, get to DC asap and hug bomb janshares.
Sweet of you, Jesse. Glad I could be of help.

<link snipped>While enjoying my tribute to ImKarn23, I've been dealing with a somewhat awkward sitituation. Someone who calls herself Diva43, left a hateful and horrible comment on my Hub about Imkarn23. This is a purely personal issue but after the many comments left afterwards, I decided to...

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 hope Robin will come by and comment on this one. I have been going through all of my old comments and deleting any that don't add anything to the conversation, but some of my hubs have a ton of very useful and informative comments. I don't want to throw the baby out with the bathwater.What makes...

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...
