How do I edit my account so I don't have to approve comments etc?
I'd rather people can just post comments so they'll appear right away. How do I do that?
Try looking at the comments capsule and go into edit for that hub comment capsule. By default the comment will show up unless you have the "Comments must be approved before they appear" box checked. There are also some other settings like receiving an email and such. The approve button will show up even tho the comment doesn't need approval to show up. I'm not sure why this occurs but it still gives you the option to deny the comment, so I think its good idea that the buttons still show to give you a second option to approve them or not.
I have had to deny comments from spammers but I always get a email alerting me that a comment was left so I can check it later. That is by default also.

What Would Happen if you didn't Approve a comment?Under new comments there is 2 buttons... APPROVE and SPAMBut what happens if you press neither? If nothing, then is the approve button really neccasary? or should it just be a default until you hit Spam?

I just went under my account page and clicked on Comments, and much to my surprise and delight there were pages of comments! However, after a closer look, they are all comment made by me on others' hubs from the past 19 hours to well over 13 months ago! And ... to boot, I have the...
