Is it true that in order for a outside visitor to hubpages must register before being able to...
comment? Is that pretty common in some other sites?
not at all! Atleast for hubpages (like many others as well) an outsider can simply post his name/nickname and add comments. As a plus, the hubber who gets the comment to moderate would notice the outsiders ip address. In a way this helps hubpages automatically identify (well im simply guessing!) anything mischevious like hubbers logging out and posting comments for themselves with pseudonyms! If we go by this logic, its possible that some sites make u register first b4 commenting to avoid cheating and to automatically gain memberships etc!
Not at all, I get lots of comments from outside of HP.
Whether or not an unregistered user can leave comments on this stie is up to the individual Hub author and they can also vary it from Hub to Hub.
The comment capsule setting that controls who can comment can be set either way. Some authors choose to let anyone comment, some authors only want registered users to comment and some will vary their choice depending on the Hub topic.
As far as I know, they can't vote in this section but they can leave comments on hubs.
Visitors may also vote in the HubNuggets Contest every week without registering and post comments on many of the HubPages Blog entries!
One must be a registed member to post on the Forums, to click Up or Down on comments here; and to write a Hub.

Thsi has happened a lot and generates a lot of questions in my mind.For example; If the hub is on back pain and...

How do you deal with an unpleasant comment posted from outside hubpages?I am in mid flow so to speak with someone who is ignorant, insulting and downright annoying! He won't read the hub properly but insists his country is far superior and I am stupid, basically. Even though its research came from...

I was quite stunned a week or more ago when someone made a statement on one of my hubs that she had commented twice and I had snubbed her by not replying. Her comment had been particularly flattering, and probably because I've spent a lifetime being flattered by others only to find that they wanted...

Reading through the comments section of hubs often provides a lot more insight to the topic of the hub. Before I comment, I usually read through the comments others have left. When the comment stream is quite long, or if I have a strong reaction to the topic, I comment first, then, go back to read...

In which cases would you flag/report someone to Hubpages, or even ask that they be banned?For example, if someone slandered your name, would you flag them? Here is a comment taken from a religious Q&A comment on Hubpages: "Compulsive lying with an inclination towards spreading...

<link snipped>While enjoying my tribute to ImKarn23, I've been dealing with a somewhat awkward sitituation. Someone who calls herself Diva43, left a hateful and horrible comment on my Hub about Imkarn23. This is a purely personal issue but after the many comments left afterwards, I decided to...
