    Sometimes even after writing a comment when post a comment button is pressed it shows following message:
    "Please enter a comment before posting".This is not a regular problem but happens occasionaly.

    Good! I mean bad. The comments thing was driving me nuts. I work on a comment and finally hit the "post a comment" button and the system takes me out and doesn't say, waiting for author's approval or ??

    Happened again this am. Was trying to post to pgrundy's latest.

    You guys are not nuts.  I was noticing that myself the last several days.  I would guess it's a bug in the HubPages code. I did find a work-around though.  If you get the message that says "Please enter a comment before posting" then just copy the text you wrote, click your browser's refresh button, and then paste the text back into the text box and click "Submit".  For me, it went through each time I did that.

    You may not need to copy and paste after refresh. Just a precaution so you don't need to retype what you wrote in case "refresh" clears the text.

      I've had the same problem at least once a day for about a week now, it seems.  I can testify that what Glenn has suggested has been working for me as well.  smile
