Hope everyone is doing well. Quick question about disappearing comments on this hub:
https://hubpages.com/politics/Kirkland- … ter-in-law
Two separate users left the following comments:
'You should be ashamed of yourself for continuing to insult the Antoniazzi family and their innocent "entourage".'
'I have never read anything with less merit. A load of crap. I sincerely hope that you are sued!'
They have now been removed and the line under each reads (I won't include the full ip):
Status: Admin Denied. ip: 208
Status: Admin Denied. ip: 209
I am almost 100% sure I allowed both of the comments. After reading the FAQs I see the following about comments that shouldn't be permitted.
Is the commenter attacking someone, verbally abusing them, or telling them to "shut up"?
Is the comment offensive or harassing?
Is the comment racist, sexist, or homophobic?
Be careful, it is okay to passionately disagree with someone or to criticize someone's actions or opinions as long as the comment isn't unnecessarily rude.
I am suspecting that someone from HubPages took issue with the level of disrespect shown by the comments and deleted them, which, if it is the case, totally makes my day, month, and year. I feel honored to receive such support and backup. HubPages really cares!
However, in the article I take issue with a publication known as the 'Northern News' for removing my comments from an article, though, as can be seen, I asked respectful questions. I am slightly concerned that some readers may accuse me of deleting them and of being a hypocrite.
Also, I answered the readers in the comments, so now it's a bit unclear what I'm talking about, though I think most readers could figure out that I'm responding to deleted questions.
So I'm not sure what really happened here, and I'm not upset at all, in fact I'm humbled, but I need to know what to tell people if they accuse me of deleting the comments, which I'm 99 percent sure I did not. Also, I'd be interested in hearing opinions on whether or not I should leave my replies as they stand, or if I should remove them.
Just say that HubPages has a special algorithm (that always impresses) that removes poor quality comments that add nothing to the debate
If a comment is admin denied, it's not necessarily because of the actual content of the comment (though we will do so in cases of hate speech, excessive profanity, etc). We will also remove extremely poorly written comments, for example, because the poor grammar/spelling are seen by Google as part of the author's content and can actually hurt the article in search results. Similarly, we will potentially remove comments in cases where the IP address is associated with a spam bot, etc.

I'm sure there are many reasons for and against responding to comments left by your readers. What do you think?

What happens if you don't moderate your own comments? I tend to forget then go in and do a bunch at once. But I was wondering if the failure to moderate them meant they couldn't be seen or weren't counted or something?

Need some advice. Should I allow only signed-in HP members to comment on hubs? That's what I've been doing since the beginning (to weed out spam) but now I'm not so sure... This is from the HubPages blog: "Only signed-in users may post comments: If you choose this option, only other Hubbers...
