If HubPages can flag for duplicate content, could a system or filter be put in place to flag for inappropriate language in comments.
For example, is it acceptable to have comments such as
I want to f*** you like a dog
I want to f*** your a**hole
on the "Indian aunty" hubs.
If somebody wants to produce soft porn hubs that's their choice, and if HubPages allows such subjects, who am I to criticise. But when I am browsing down the hottest hubs lists to see what topics succeed, and come across hubs with these comments it concerns me. It cannot impress any casual visitor to HubPages, and while these comments, I hope, are in a tiny minority surely it cannot do HubPages reputation with Google any good, and that affects us all.
Can they not be flagged or filtered automatically or is it down to hubbers who have the time to police the system?

And whenever I delete one, it seems another immediately comes up!I'm sure that when I wake up tomorrow (it's almost 1 in the morning now) I'll have many more to delete. Ugh, is there a way to stop these spam...

Should have a global comment setting where I can set so that comments are automatically closed in my Hub after 14 days after the Hub is published. The most productive comments come right after the hub is published. Spam typically appears in comments of older posts.Wordpress for...

So, I've always thought it was the polite thing to do to reply to commenters, and thank them for their time and input, and I've made an effort to do so consistently.However, I'm wondering if this is now being discouraged by HP, as there is no available comment box for replies on hubs that have been...

Hey Hubpages Staff,I've been a member for 15 months now and have been told countless times that "Share with Followers" is NOT to be used by the author of a hub.Then why is it that the FEED is loaded with Hubbers promoting their own work?
