Hi Hubbers, what should I do in response to a comment that is attacking my article, should I ignore, or approve and stay silent, or approve and reply to his/her comment. thank you
If I were you I would just not approve/delete it. Is there anything constructive in the comment that might help you going forward?
It depends what you mean by attack.
If they are clearly being rude and aggressive, then I would delete the comment.
If they are arguing against your point in a calm, rational fashion and you disagree with their viewpoint, approve the comment and respond to it in a calm rational fashion.
If it's constructive criticism I may keep it, especially if it adds to the hub. Else just delete it and ignore.
Not all the raised points are constructive, Some are subjective, that what makes it hard to answer
Agree with lobobrandon.Constructive criticism is good because it engage the readers to spend more time on your hub. It also attracts other readers to dive in and share their opinion. However, if you face an attack then obviously you not approve the comment!
You could always reply in a professional manner. You can shut the attacker down but in a way that you don't offend them or make yourself look unprofessional also ignoring them is a good thing too! The choice is ultimately up to you and how you handle things. Hope things go well.
I agree. If the person is being belligerent then delete the comment.
Thanks for your valuable reply, it really helped a lot!

What Would Happen if you didn't Approve a comment?Under new comments there is 2 buttons... APPROVE and SPAMBut what happens if you press neither? If nothing, then is the approve button really neccasary? or should it just be a default until you hit Spam?

have you experience this, an unverified person, meaning not a member of hubpages visited your hub and criticize your hub and photos... how are you going to react? I clicked the deny option coz it does not look good to me. Do you think I will need to adjust because being here in hubpages I am prone...

Do you approve all comments on your hubs, even if every third word is a swear word? I'm just wondering if it's normal to do so or if it's normal to just delete it.
