Heck yeah I do. If anything, it embarrasses them.
Sometimes I respond to the “negative nanny” through comments, other times through an e-mail, and every once in a while I just let it hang out.
Yes... Really. Bec., it will help me to improve the quality of my hubs...
I do not consider them as negative unless they are totally off track, I actually value suggestions ( that is how I would like to look at them) because they help me improve my work.
If they are totaly critical and unreasonable, I might disregard them and not entertain such a comment.
I suppose it would have to be what type of negative feedback it is. If it's something that will help me improve my writing, then of course I will keep it, and probably take their advice!
If it's just someone being mean or calling me an idiot, that would not be approved. It does no one any good.
Hope this helps you!
There is nothing wrong with negative comments or feedback it would be a strange world indeed if we went around only reacting to positive comments.
I quite often give and receive negative feedback and comment withing Hub, questions and the Forum, as long as it is constructive and you can help where is the harm.
What is wrong is destructive comments and feedback, there is no call for anybody to be rude insulting or abusive.
We cannot agree on everything and sometimes the most constructive thing you can do is say nothing !
Least said Etc...Etc...
Negative feedback doesnt seem good initially but it helps in improving the quality of the post and it should be taken in a positive sense.
Thank you all for take a lil time and answer my question. I also approved any smart critic and also deny some "bad words comments" , I asked this question because I post some negative comment to one member, I just tell him what he doing wrog, and he deny it heh..
happy hubbing keep it up!
I usually approve negative comments, unless they are plain mean spirited or attacking me personally. I have had a few of those. I on occasion will approve those and challenge the commenter to write his/her own hub, and let them be judged.
Negative comments can help with what may need changing if anything with the hub. One thing to remember is not everybody is going to like everything we write, there are people out there that just HAVE to say something. To stir up the pot. Unfortunately sometimes the negative comments sting, but sometimes they encourage us to move ahead with a better hub.

Do you approve or deny negative feedback that includes insulting comments on you HubPages?

Today I received a very hateful, spiteful message on one of my hubs from a visitor named "Local Yokel". Just wondering if anyone else has heard from this individual. I have a pretty thick skin, but this one really got to me.

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

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.

we all know comments effect mind of new readers who are unknown to our previous works, now the question is will you approve bad reaction of your readers on your hubs?dont you think people should know fair things about your hub not only good things but also other kind of responses?

Do you approve negative comments that readers make about your hubs?It's great to have readers compliment your hubs, brag on you for a job well done,but what those about those readers that disagree with you on what you've written written or have less than constructive criticism about your writing...
