I was just wondering if you could delete comments. Still a newbie!
Enter your comment capsule and check out the option where it says that comments will show on your hub only after you have approved them (tick the little box on the left next to the option). Then you will receive an e-mail each time someone leaves you a comment and it is up to you to approve or deny.
I always make sure the top two check boxes are checked before I publish. The one is automatic (the "email me" option), so I have to remember to add the check to the first box every time. Saves a lot of grief and nonsense in the long run - especially from spammers
Comments you are able to delete will show a button that reads "delete."
If and for how long that option stays open will vary a bit depending on whether the comment is on one of your own Hubs, in the forum or on someone else's Hub.
Even if you have approved a comment you have an option to deny that in your own hubs.

Do you delete useless negative comments?I have seen this happen a few times (on my own hubs too) where people write senseless negative comments such as "this is horrible" without any real feedback or reasons why they dislike the article. I understand that no hub will please everyone, but...

Normally, I approve 99% of all comments left on my hubs. But twice today, and once yesterday, there were comments left, all by "anonymous," that I simply denied because they were just way out of line.Not demeaning, offensive, hateful, or anything like that...just WAY off topic.In...

Do you think that you should have the option to delete comments you made on someone else's hub?You have ten minutes to change your comment, but do you think that you should have the option to later delete a comment if you change your mind?
