Because those crafty spammers somehow manage to infiltrate my hubs and leave their @#*#! Ugg boots spam on them. i swear to god if i get one more of those...
here is what my settings are:
x-Comments must be approved before they appear
x-Email me when new comments are posted
x-Only signed-in users may post comments
and yet, still they come and the comments are already there, even though i didn't approve them. something isn't right here.
my valentine's hub. oh, p.s. i deleted it. i never leave spam on my hubs.
The only 2 recent ugg comments that I see are on your New Years 2010 hub from 9 days ago. Changes to the comments capsule settings are not retroactive. Did you restrict the comments to signed in users recently, or has it been that way for a while?
really? that's about the time i started turning on comments restrictions on each hub. i just checked that hub and here are the settings that have been in place since i published it:
Comments must be approved before they appear
Email me when new comments are posted
Only signed-in users may post comments
i am not seeing any ugg comments on there though. hmm...
i did find some empty photo capsules, so i deleted them. also i am not getting notifcation of comments, even though i have that turned on. that little glitch started last week.
thank you for taking time to look at this. i appreciate it. i'm sure you have tons of stuff to do. i was wondering if other members had a similar problem.

Currently all comments I receive on my hubs are set to be approved or denied before being published. I cannot find where I can disable it (or enable it later, if I want to).

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...

Can an adjustment be made to the comment capsule so that when it's set for moderation it tells people who leave an entry that comments won't appear until approved?Frequently I find that people leave multiple comments and it's just because the first one they left didn't appear right away.

At one of the other forum threads, I made a suggestion and was told to place it here so that it may be considered by the HP staff.From reading and commenting on hubs, it seems to me there are many members who would rather have their comments section set so that any comments being posted will appear...
