I had a person leave a comment on one of my hubs that I did not want on there. I did delete it, but I felt bad doing so. I think this person was trying to be helpful, but it went against what I was trying to accomplish with that hub. Selling the product shown in that hub. This person gave a link to a sight that had the "same" product for "less". Was it wrong of me to get rid of that comment?
No, I don't think you were wrong. I'm sure you make comments on other people's blogs for self-promotion purposes from time to time (so do I), but to do it by damaging the article or blog it's posted on - that's not acceptable.
Your hubs belong to you ... so you have every right to police them. Also, I consider it really shady to try to turn a buck on another person's article by posting a link that undercuts them.
I never allow comments with links in them unless they *add* something to the hub without taking away anything from it. I banish very few ... typically people trying to sell UGG boots.
No, it was wrong of them to try to advertise on your hub. The whole point of hubs that are trying to sell something is to get people to order from the site you are promoting. I would have done the same thing. So don't feel bad about it.
Marisa Wright, your right. That was a bit of a stab in the back, by them, to do such a thing. But unlike you, I would never stoop so low as to self promotion on anothers hub. (snicker. snicker) Man, I lie like a rug... Thanks for the feed back.
Actually, I don't post links on other people's Hubs. The most I'll do is say "I wrote a Hub on this same subject".
Unless, of course,it's a spammy Hub written by a Hubber who's obviously been inactive for a while. Then I feel no shame
you did well
many hubbers use bad comment to discourage fellow hubbers
no stress one of those things.lets just be focus.
Any comments made to detract or damage or devalue my hubs are instantly deleted. SPAM is marked as spam. I don't report people for leaving links, I just don't allow outsiders of HubPages.

Does it bother you that people visit your hubs and don't leave comments?What's more important to you, getting tons of traffic with no comments or getting less traffic with comments?For me, I love to get comments because it lets me know if I have touched someone or given someone a new way of doing...

Do you reply back to each person who leaves a comment on your hubs?Please explain the reason why you do or do not. I am wondering if I need to do this or not since I have noticed that some folks do this pretty faithfully.

Do you continue to read hubs of those you follow if they don't comment on your hubs?When you have limited time do you just comment on those who regularly comment on your hubs?

Do you always leave a comment if you read a hub?I have followers whom I've never seen in the comments sections and just wondered what other hubbers think about the comments in general. Do you leave comments when you read? Sometimes? Always? Never? Please give your reasons with...

I am not looking to name names here as this happens quite a lot on Hubpages, but can someone please clarify whether or not it is against the rules for a Hubber to come to your hub, leave a comment and then include a link to one of their own hubs as a part of that comment. I know it says under each...

When you are "Hub Hopping" do you make a comment?I never know if I should write a comment or just read, give it an up or down, flag it, and just move on to the next one.
