I have a lot of lengthy comments on articles with included relevant links added. My intention was to provide additional info for readers, but maybe Google doesn't see it that way. Anyway even though the text of the comments may help ranking, the only way I can remove links is by deleting comments. Obviously if we could edit comments, we could correct spelling and remove links. I think this feature has been requested several times before.
This would be a helpful feature, but until we have this feature you could just copy the content, post a new comment and delete the old. Most readers have already read your response, if they haven't they won't be returning to read it anyway. You may have to modify it a bit so that the comment makes sense without a reference to the question posed by the person who commented.
I've removed quite a lot of links in comments. Do you think it's worthwhile doing this? They were related to the content.

I fail to see the need for the "related hub" section on each of my hub pages. Sometimes these hubs do not really relate to mine. Readers come to our pages to read the hubs we wrote or because they like to follow us. Pulling our readers away to other hubs is not quite fair.There are...

I am NOT 100% sure where to post this before anybody jumps on me! I personally would like to see the comments section of a hub precede the ads and the related hubs. It feels like our readers come in to read the information on our hub and then are tantalized by the ads and encouraged by the related...

I noticed that hubs in niche sites no longer include the "More by this author" section below the hub. Is this just an oversight or was it a decision to drop it on niche sites?
