    What does 'moderate my own comment' mean at the bottom of my comment to a hub?

    Often when I comment on someone's hub a grayed in bar comes up that reads, "moderate my own comment."  Can anyone tell me what that means?  Is the person I am commenting to receiving my comment?  This is happening quite often so I'm wondering if I am doing something wrong?  Would appreciate any feedback.

    That means you can edit/change you comment. When you make a comment you have a specific amount of time to change the comment if you want to. The recipient will still be able to see your comment.

    As Imarsh1203 mentioned, the gray bar is there so you can edit/change/delete your own comment. You can also delete/deny other people's comments or report them as Spam when necessary. There are several settings that you can change regarding how you receive comments and how you want to moderate them (ex. you can hide comments until you approve them. They won't be seen by anyone else but you until you approve them) For more information check out this article from the HubPages Learning Center: http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/comments-capsule

    Hope this helps!

    I have never used "moderate my own comment". Wondered what it was for. You asked a good question. Sorry for being so slow.

    Stay Well

    Moderate your own comment means just that.  You are given the choice to simply answer the commentors and to keep the comments capsules of your hub up to date.
