I have a hub on emotional abuse and wrote a poem on this topic.
I have now received a disturbing comment - more so if it is genuine and need someone's opinion on whether I should approve or deny this comment.
The name of the hub is Emotional Abuse and it is the last comment on the hub.
I am not promoting my hub I just need some advice.
I would approve it. Really I'm not sure if there is anything else you can do. Perhaps you can report it and perhaps the police should be called.
That is a disturbing comment, particularly since it's author is unverified. I think I might approve it in order to urge this person to come forward and communicate more. Tough call.
Just leave it there or delete it, but don't get involved !
that is very disturbing...and yea like what Lorlie and Poppa said it is a tough call but I would approve it and see what happens. Maybe the writer will come forward...who knows...but that is creepy!
Thanks but as I am sitting in South Africa I don't think I can do much other than approve his comment.
Will wait and see what other people think if I get more feedback!
Thanks for your time.
for whatever reason this person came to your article and read it and left a comment. I would leave it.
I think leave it. It may make the person feel worse if they see their comment has been ignored.
By the way, for your Flickr photos, you must include a hyperlink to the photographer's photostream - just acknowledging them in the caption isn't enough, because that's not a link.
You can put the links at the end of the Hub, in a links capsule if you like.
I approved the comment and posted the following reply :
Killing yourself will just make your wife feel more guilty and if you have been abusing her that is the last thing that she deserves. Let her walk away from the marriage if that is what she wants - but let her do it knowing that she does it with your blessing. If you do anything to harm yourself you will make her suffer for the rest of her life.
If he comes back then maybe he will listen to what I have to say - if he does not maybe someone else will think about what I said and gain by it - who knows.
Thanks once again for all the advice.
Deny the comment and report it as Spam notify HP about the issue the will handle it to the best of their ability.
I have just approved it. There is no link so I suppose there can be no harm done. Or am I missing something?
Why would HubPages do anything about it?
Can it be considered as spam if he has not posted an outgoing link?
I hope that the person does come back and read your comment to his. You are a sweet and insighful person and I hope that either he and/or more ppl read it and take it to heart.

Do you accept or deny comments that leave a link to someone's website?I don't mind people leaving a link to one of their hubs but I don't know about people leaving a link to their own website.

What does it mean when your comment does not post immediately on a hub but you can see that others do? Is it related to the "accept or deny" buttons in the comment section on our page? Seems there's another level of regulation I'm missing because it doesn't happen every time. Some...

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?
