    I know this is a problem for some of us, but I'm tired of the insulting comments that some new "members" are leaving . They haven't written any articles so they can't be banned?
    I do delete them. Anyone else have this  issue?

      Sorry to that; happens to me as well, but I do my best to ignore them. It helps to set your comments to need approval before they'll show, so readers never encounter them.

    I am sorry to hear that, and no. I have not had anything like that. Fingers crossed.

    People join in order to leave comments. If they aren't acceptable, delete them and forget them. They aren't genuine hubbers.

    Someone has been leaving derogatory remarks on my pages for years. I worry if I don't hear from him for a while.

      Have you heard from him recently? Or was he on a Christmas break?

            People dont seem to get too angry about video games and technology... oh wait actually they do sometimes.

            My advice is to refuse rude comments and approve the comments that help your hub or are genuine feedback. The way I see it I am the moderator of my hubs. I approve what I think is OK and delete the rest. I try to be somewhat approving though.

      I have gotten my fair share of battering from these people as well. Some are genuine, others are just downright mean.

    If they insult me I insult them right back.  I figure if you want to play a war of words with me, bring it!

    Thanks for the feedback.This problem of "hit and run" commenters has been a problem since they don't have to prove themselves as writers or give a profile before being allowed to leave comments or use the forums.
