    How do you correct an editbot's mistake?

    I noticed the editbot removed the word "here" and replaced it with the word "hear" which is clearly incorrect. How do I undo what the editbot did? It is no big deal as it was done in a comment, but it is incorrect.

    What's the entire sentence? I'd be curious to know so that I might determine why Editbot "thought" it was wrong. Anyway, you can't change it back. If it's definitely wrong let HubPages staff know about it so they can fine-tune Editbot. It's right 99% of the time, but it misses once in a while. At least we don't have to be so diligent about deleting poorly written comments anymore.

      Hi Glenn, I went back to read it, but of course since I clicked on it, the editbot went away.  That hub has 121 comments ...Anyway, the comment is referring to a place not as in hearing a sound ...Yes, that is true about not having to delete.

      I looked at your hub that has 121 comments. There are only two comments with the word “hear” and they both are correct usage.

      “I know you will hear those words one day”
      “I hear she wrote a tribute to a real life angel!”

      There are no others.

      Oh, really!  Hmmm, well, maybe it was another hub?  Anyway, I'm glad the ones on that hub are correct!  You are kind to go in search of it through all my hubs, Glenn.  You went above and beyond : )

    I was wondering the same thing. They are all in the comment section. I guess just leave them alone?

      Hi Ruby, all of the corrections seemed to be good to go except that one I saw, but maybe I didn't see what I thought I saw ...hahaha
