Paul, since we have the option of approving or denying comments, would it be possible to ban a specific member from commenting?
I dont want to have to moderate my hubs just for 1 or 2 people, but its starting to get to me.
<insert irritated smilie here>
Actually, on second thought, can you make it so we can deny comments as "spam"?
Right now we can only approve or deny - but they autoflag as spam sometimes. Can we manually do this, so you'll know if these people are doing it everywhere, and some kind of measure can be taken?
Cos I'm gonna scream if I get one more "very informative, please visit me" or "please join my fanclub" comment!
Wow!! You guys are really, really poplular!! I've never gotten a single one!! I hate being left out!! Okay so maybe on this one it is a good thing!! Blessings, Earth Angel!!
Someone somewhere has probably written an e-book on how to get more traffic to your sites by making hubs (with links to their own non-Hub sites) and "promoting" them by hitting guestbooks and leaving copy and paste comments with a positive message and a link back to one of their own hubs.
If my speculation is correct it's only going to get worse.
And now they are returning to leave more comments when I deny the first 2 or 3!
I think they even have a second account they're doing the same thing with - this makes for tons of comments in a thread that I wish I could just delete...
... erm.. why can't we delete them, anyway....?
It would be nice to at least make them invisible!
4 times in one hub, and Im sure there will be a 5th, 6th and 7th.
If this isnt spam, I dont know what is.
Is there nothing we can do to stop this??

In another thread trish1048 made a comment about comments - I found it a bit of a shock to be honest. I'd really appreciate other viewpoints please? What she said was: "What I greatly appreciate are the hubbers who always respond to their comments. Nothing frustrates me...

Do you find that leaving comments and replying to them increases your stats, or does it take you away (time wise) from writing hubs?

I'm totally confused as to why some of my hubs get better traffic and comments than others. I'm not very commercially driven, but would like to know if I'm writing articles that people actually enjoy reading.I would welcome your comments on how to improve one hub in particular - I really thought...

so how do you feel about people who write hubs accept the comments and don't reply to them? I find myself doing that about 80% of the time because I run out of things to reply. also because I am a bit lazy. also because I wonder if you comment how you would know whether I reply or...

There are two newly discovered hubbers who have only posted raw translations by using online translating tool, what they did was merely copy and paste the results without doing any further modifications. From the comments they replied, you can tell they don't really understand much English. Even...
