The approve or deny button..what is required?
Does one's comment need to be approved before it can be seen? Or can it be seen until it is denying by the author? This is kind of like the "why ask a question and delete the answer?" question. I'm asking because the SAME person has deleted my comments on several of his hubs where he is writing as an authority on a subject he knows very little about (on examination of several of his hubs on the same topic) where I was being polite.
I will have to laugh if he has - as it says more about him than it does about me.
If you know so much about the subject where your comments are being deleted, then I think your best form of defence is attack. Meaning if you think this person is wrong with the information in their hub, then write a hub on the subject explaining what you believe to be correct.
Yes, if you cannot see your comments then they have either been deleted or not approved yet. I believe you are right, your comments are being deleted.
Hahaha - thought so. Oh well says more about his character that mine.
jlpark, I think from what we've read here that we can't really make a call on the character of either of you.
Casmiro.... Who are we to make that judgment? Not I.
JT and Casmiro - u both have a point. You don't know enough of either of us. But to name him would be juvenile. So I'll just smile
I think they have to be following you first to have your comments automatically approved.
Absolutely agree that a better course would be to write your own hubs on the topic(s). For one thing, your points are diluted by putting them in the comments, which not everyone reads. Another course of action might be to send direct messages to the author.
I know that technically, the comments can not be seen until the author approves or denies them. But, one time, when I (the author) went to go approve/deny comments, there had already been a string of communication between a couple of readers before I even got there. How could they have been communicating like that unless I hit the "approve" button?
Aside from what I just shared, the system is supposed to work in a manner that if you go to a hub and don't see your comment, then it has either been deleted or not attended to yet.
Yes, the author has to approve the comments before they are release to the public to read. If someone deleted your comments, obviously, you couldn't see them in his hubs and positively, he doesn't agree to your comments either. Since he can't block you, he deleted them. I do agree that writing your own hubs with the right concepts is a great way to prove that your comments are right.

Hey guys,I don't know why I have never asked about this before, is there a way to approve all comments or could we request an approve all for comments? I average around 8-10k views per day with countless comments, I am just saying it would be helpful. I do try to respond to comments as much as...

Does the "Deny" / "Approve" button on comments encourage censorship?While the "deny" button comments may allow us to remove offensive or derogatory comments, it also means that criticism of hubs can be denied. what are your thoughts on this?

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.

Some comments I make on hubs are immediately unapproved - why?In two instances, I made a comment on a hub that didn't appear; it just said it had to be approved by the author first, and it thanked me for participating in the HubPages community. When I looked at my activity on my profile page, it...

we all know comments effect mind of new readers who are unknown to our previous works, now the question is will you approve bad reaction of your readers on your hubs?dont you think people should know fair things about your hub not only good things but also other kind of responses?

It there a way we can allow comments and at the same time "Disallow" the hyperlink? Especially for the non-members of Hubpages.Sometimes the comments are OK to allow, but I may not want the link on my page, especially when multiple links on multiple hubs are the same. I know I could...
