      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.

        If you're finding it difficult to answer, ignore it. Don't spend time on stuff that isn't really important.

    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.
