Admins seem to deny almost any comment with even just one misspelled work or a bit of poor grammar. Is there any way to reapprove admin denied comments (particularly old ones)?
I understand wanting the comments in our articles to be of high quality, but I don't personally see a problem with a slight error here and there--that's just par for the course in online communities. And since nonauthor comments obviously stem from people other than us, I doubt minor mistakes will reflect upon us..
I went through the "denied" list in my "comments" section of "my account" and saw several generally-positive or constructive comments that were probably rejected for slight mistakes, but most are still very readable.
Once a comment has been denied, I don't think you can go back and change them. Before the team started denying comments, I used to delete the incorrect ones myself. Those errors count against you the same as if you made them and can harm your ranking.
That's interesting. Things seem different on other platforms, say YouTube, where just about every comment is made in "text talk".
Again, I very much appreciate proper grammar, but doubt many readers know their comments aren't likely to appear unless they're worded perfectly. Most of my articles would have a lot more comments if I could edit the grammar, like in the Q&A feature, to passing standards.
Comments have something to do with success because the content comes up in search--their impact is one reason HP started insisting they not be badly written.

Why are spam comments that have been denied showing up in my news feed on the home page?
by Jeremy Gill 15 months ago
Not a big deal, but on one of my articles, two people made similar comments. Neither struck me as spammy, and I answered both in a single response, referring to them by name.Later, I saw an admin had denied one of the comments from appearing, making half my response baffling. I remedied the issue...

Which comments do you deny on your hubs?

What's the point in having a comment box if the particular hubber denies every comment posted on the hub?I noticed a comment on a hub, so I read it. It wasn't a bad comment at all, just something that I would see why the hubber wouldn't want it on the hub. IE it was opposite of which he's trying to...
