I turned this in to the "help" section, but someone has left an obscene comment which I left unapproved or denied. Has anyone else had this happen and if so, is there a separate email address I should have written to?
hI CREMECHESE, i get obscene comments all of the time in hubs, i just ignore them and deny them, if you click on edit in the comments capsule there are 3 options to edit 1)Comments must be approved before they appear 2)Email me when new comments are posted , 3) Only signed-in users may post comments. there is a fourth option you can click on the x on the comments capsule and remove it completely,
option 1 i find best it allows people to comment ,but it wont show on the hub until you approve it.
have fun .....jimmy
My deeper problem is I am afraid I have someone trailing me to harrass me, maybe I should not worry unless this begins happening often. I guess if I did suspect that, I could change my nickname all over the net -- but I don't see why such a person should get away with it.
in any website where you allow users a chance to comment,there is always someone who will abuse it its the way of the world , sad i know but try not to take it personaly its just how those people get their kicks that is why you have admin control, to weed people who do it out.....jimmy
I agree. I think those people thrive on attention so it's often best to ignore them. And if they actually do threaten or harrass you in an illegal way, you should probably consult with the police.
For the most part trolls fish to see if they get a reaction.
If you don't give it to them in those initial stages they'll move along and find someone else to bother.
Unless they're quite determined. And then they'll probably escalate their attention seeking jibes. If it gets personal that's when you report it to the site that you're at so they're aware of the problem. Not to delete the message but that they're on notice that you will be needing the IP address soon when authorities get involved.
Thank you for your feedback. We'll see if this continues or they go away.
They will go to any limits to get attention,lol.Its ridiculous! The internet makes people so brave that they start believing they are different people,lol. I wish they had a real life and a little happiness to lessen their misery.I also hope that admin will ban them when the post is openly abusive.

To the HubPages staff, I have received ugly and obscene comments emailed to me via HubPagesby a new hubber. To report them to HubPages do I need to do more than click on the abuse link at the bottom of the emails?

For years I have been diligent about responding to questions left on my hubs. But now I've discovered comments are being published on my articles without appearing in my Comments section, so I look like I'm rude and ignoring readers who go to the effort of writing.Today I spent ages waiting for...

Pretty much like one would have it on a blog - with the difference that I am talking about hubtivity here.I had posted a single comment to one of the hubs a while ago. I am not too interested in the topic, just wanted to share my experience and forget. Well, the thing is - for many months this hub...

I'm moving over from Squidoo this week, and I'm quite impressed with Hubpages. But in some ways Squidoo handled comments better. You might want to think about incorporating these features (in your free time, after integrating all the new hubs!)1. When we deleted a comment, we had the option to also...

Comments like these sure put a damper on things... You want to comment back, but know there's no point because the person isn't coming back for more. Plus, why instigate more hatred on yourself?

I know there have been some trolls on HubPages and I have already contacted the staff to see maybe if they could help me with my issue.I have an occasional guest commentor.. His messages are disturbing, but I'm wondering if he sounds familiar to you. I wish I could remember all of his comments,...
