Why doesn't one moderated comment stay hidden, when I had written one twice?
I tried to moderate my own comment, as initially, the first comment disappeared so I retyped it, and then later I noticed I had two comments. I tried to moderate one of the comments to "hide" it, but later went back and both are still showing - the same comment twice, as it went back to visible status. Is there a save button after you moderate or should it automatically "hide" or moderate?
I honestly have no idea... the one thing I dis-like about Hubpages, and probably the only thing, is that the comment system is very disorganized and broken. I mostly reply to other users comments, and I tend to do that through my feed, as it's easier to approve and reply that way, then through an actual hub. Sometimes I can't reply to users comments in my hubs, instead I approve and just write a response back in the hub itself. But hours later the "Reply" option becomes available. So I would try to use your feed if you can.
It may not help answer your question, but I at least share your pain.
I don't know either. I am sorry it did not answer you question, but it has happened to me also a couple of times. Once I retyped it, then it came out twice.
I am not positive, but I think the hidden moderated comments are always visible to you, as the owner of the account. Send me the link to the hub you are talking about and I will tell you if I can see the moderated comments or not. Tell me who they follow and I can check. You can send the link via e-mail on my profile page, if you do not want to list the information here.
Thanks Larry, I have been having a lot of comment just disappear, then when I comment again and see later that there are two. For a little while it will say "hide" but then later both are still showing as visible.
I have had the same problem. I think when you hit the hide button, it goes into a hidden mode. Then something in the background takes place so that only you can see it. I do not rewrite comments until I check to see if my first attempt is visible.
Thanks Larry, for the added info. It is very helpful.

Why do comments without any offense get moderated and then deleted?I am facing this problem for last two comments I punched in. First they went under moderation and then got deleted. Is this is a ban from commenting.

I have a recent hub and a new hub that I am having problems with a crazy person I know who is posting comments under various anon identities. Is there any possible way of blocking them from my account on HubPages? The best I can do at present is keep deleting their often very rude posts.

There is a glitch on the HP home page. It must be a glitch because the comments are visible on the actual hubs:When authors have their hubs moderated, comments are hidden until they are approved. However, as of today (Friday 11th) this changed. Even if the hubs are un-moderated and you...

Why doesn't HP take you to a comment instead of just to the question. Impossible to follow comments?When I hit on a HP email notification -- it no longer takes me to the comment but just to the Question. Impossible to follow conversation.

I need to be away from computer for about two weeks and I wanted to put my comments as unmoderated, so readers can just comment and they will auto-publish. For the last two days, after I changed the radio box to unmoderated and SAVED, the comments are still coming up for approval.Is there something...

Unmoderating commentsI know this may sound like something I should know, but I don't know how to allow comments without approving them. I don't want people to think I'm not open to criticism when they comment on my hubs. So how do I allow people to comment without approval?
