    Any negative comments that's rude out of place and that tries to oppose  my hub. I deny it because surely i would have a plaster for that soar. I prefer not have arguments on my hubs... so i may take you into a private forum.

    My thing is if you don't like my hubs don't read it. But don't you read it and tell me i shouldn't talk about this or that.... You'd see my other side smile

    Well I will normally deny a comment that hás nothing to do with the subject of the hub or does not bring any value to the hubbers community.

    Only spam answers and we get many of those sometimes.

    Comments that insult my Mother will not be tolerated, they will, however, earn folks a "special visit."  All other comments get you not visit, but are always honoured.

    I have accepted all the comments so far. The only comments that I wouldn't accept are spam and offensive comments

    Mainly spam and self-promotional posts. But I would remove abussive comments if I got any.

    If I got obvious spam I would likely delete that.  Otherwise I like to let fools and idiots prove their stupidity with their comments.

    I haven't denied any yet. They've all been really sweet and supportive. Of course, I haven't gotten that many yet. I'd like to think I'd be big enough to not deny anyone their opinion, if it differs from mine, but I don't really write about controversial stuff, anyway. Spam and obviously unrelated comments would be denied, though, for sure.

    I haven't had the occasion to deny a comment as of yet.  I would only do so if it was grossly inappropriate for the community.

    I almost asked this question myself. When I first started writing for hubpages I accepted every comment eagerly and never considered denying any of them.

    Now that I have been writing for a year, I receive at least 1-5 comments daily.  Many of the comments I receive relate to requests for an interpretation of a dream.  Sometimes the dream is relevant to the hub, sometimes it is not.  Sometimes I am unable to understand the comment due to grammatical and spelling errors.  If the comment was written by a fellow hubber, I can contact them but most of these comments I have received are from anonymous commenters.  I have not denied them but have not approved them either because I am not sure how to reply and their comments request feedback from me.

    I haven't made a decision yet about which comments to deny but I certainly have received many comments that are requests I do not understand or know what to do with.

    This question was helpful since I could understand what others had to say.  I agree with the others- if a comment was profane, violated hubpages rules, or was inappropriate for minors reading my hubs I would deny it.  Luckily, I have not received any such comments.

    I definitely see both sides.  On one hand, approving all comments and supporting our readers should be our goal..  On the other hand, some comments could be confusing or unrelated which could affect other readers who read the hub.  I
