Why do comments on my hubs show this:
The Bush-Maliki “Agreement”
instead of this:
The Bush-Maliki "Agreement"
This is just the HTML character code. If you're seeing this it's most likely because the character set being used is not declared in the document or something else on these lines.

Whoever put it there should take it away and leave it the way it was orignally -- the way it should be!
Are you talking about a comment someone left on your hub?
This can happen when someone copies and pastes text from a source that uses slanted or curly quotes (also called smart quotes or fancy quotes, there's a lot of names for them, lol) and the form they are pasting the text into is not configured to render them or convert them to straight quotes.
If you don't like the appearance of the comment you can simply deny and delete it. If you otherwise like the content of the comment and you want to keep it, you'll have to make peace with the bad formatting of quotes.
Did you read lobobrandon's link?
No. The comments were correct when they were made originally but somehow the quotation marks were changed. I spent enough time on this -- forget it.
Yes, as calculus geometry says, it's someone who copied something from another website that uses a different html character code base. I can't think of the right technical word right now.
Those who are breaking the law are, in fact, costing the nation something over $10,000 each. Per year. That doesn't seem very valuable to me...
Add a link to the comment and we will take a look.
Here is a link to the Hub that shows the problem:

Here is a comment that shows it:
You look pretty relaxed there William sitting at your typewriter at the Hour. Very nice pic. Reminded me when I worked at the "Transcript" my local newspaper. They asked me to help them out for 1 night and I ended up staying there 8 years, just one night a week though. I was a good loyal dependable helper!!!!!
Congratulations for your run for President. I don't know William, (shaking head), I really don't know if this is a good idea. My fear....Will America know what to do with a SMART President????
B.T. please don't read between the lines here. I know I sort of maybe promised you kind of that you would have my vote.

How about sharing your weirdest comments? I've had quite a few, some I keep and others I delete.I just deleted one comment that was an entire conversation between several people about a totally unrelated topic. They seemed to be chatting about leg warmers from the 1980's. It must have been cut and...

I have been a part of Hubpages for a while now and try to comment on other peoples hubs when I read them. However for some reason although I am getting regular traffic (admittedly not high, but regular) I am not getting comments. What can I do to encourage people to leave a comment?

I looked around the forums and HP Blog for info on this and found nothing...just went to answer comments on my Hubs, and I'm seeing commenters highlighted in yellow with a designation of a level (5, 7, what, 1 out of 10?) What's this about?

Is it only me, or are there others who think that it should be a common courtesy to reply to comments made to a hub. I always reply to comments made by my followers and others, and people who I follow do the same. I have noticed however, that some hubbers have comments left on their page, and they...
