Why do my comments on a hub are required to be approved by the author of that hub?
I have tried to make comments on a dozen of hubs recently which were required to be approved by the author prior being displayed to future audience. I want to know what is the reason behind this, the custom setting for hub by the authors? or anything else?
Kindly elaborate please?
It's a setting you can use when publishing hubs. Helps prevent spam or offensive comments from being immediately visible to everyone and gives you time to moderate it.
It is an option but I recommend it to all hubbers. In some cases, you will find people making comments that are off topic and some may be offensive. It is better to be safe than sorry. Some comments if un-moderated, can get you banned from Hubpages.
Thanks for your valuable info.
Un-moderated comments will get banned to whom, the author of the hub or the hubber making comment?
The way I understand it, it is up to the staff at Hubpages to make the decision. They can ban a hubber without notice or warning for violation of the term of service. You can search the web and find some unhappy hubbers complaining about it.

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...

I am not a regular hub-maker. I am just commenting on some topics which interests me... mostly political, family, religion. But some of my comments are not taken for unknown reasons. I am not going to gain anything if you take it; I am also not going to lose if my comments are deleted. ...

I've just had an interested experience. I've had four new people sign up with HubPages because they are Erhard devotees, and they were irate at what I wrote. Three of them had clearly signed up in ire and were abusive, so they're no problem. I denied their mean comments and flagged their...
