Occasionally I receive comments from someone who has a link in their name which usually takes you to a commercial site of some sort. I just received one which, when clicked on, gives a warning that it may be a trick of some sort.
What is the best thing to do in this case, or should we always deny these type comments?
Deny, mark as spam, delete forever. Spammers deserve nose parasites.
I'm with William on this one.
Had to reply because I'd never heard of nose parasites before, but I think they'd be a fine addition for any & all spammers.
those types of comments are about the only ones i would deny randy...pylos
Do you have a gun? Stupid question! Pinko's don't have guns!
Wow sneako, don't you ever get tired of being wrong? I have 5 shotguns, 4 rifles, 3 pistols and this isn't counting my antique weapons or those belonging to my wife.
I probably have almost as many firearms as you have wives! LOL
I immediately hit the delete forever button !
If the site is an OK site, I always accept those comments. After all, I go to other people's blogs and leave comments with a link in my name to my HubPage - so what goes around, comes around.
However, if the site is dubious in any way, I spam the comment.
I have been deleting them unless they are from a fellow hubber leading to a related hub.
Maybe I should report the ones I delete.
Yo Earnest! What happens when the comments are reported?
Not sure what happens on hubpages Randy.
I always assumed that 3 huge guys in a black van go to their houses and rough em up!
Randy, I can't believe you're using "yo" when you got onto poor Steven for doing so! Naughty!
Remember Detroit's own Alan Ralsky? The Godfather of Spam, the original master spammer...
He was the victim of an analog DNS attack.
He mentioned in an interview with the Detroit News that he had recently bought a house in a suburban area. Oooops.
Somebody figured out his address and posted it on line.
The US Postal service was suddenly very busy in the West Bloomfield area... people nationwide signed him up for every mailing list, free catalog, and information request they could find. He was getting hundreds of pounds of junk mail a day - they were literally delivering his mail to him with a truck. He couldn't find his real mail in all the mess.
Revenge on the spammer:
Internet vigilanteism at its finest.
He's still serving his time by the way, but I don't know which prison. Maybe I can find his address

How often do you Deny comments from another HP member?If you do deny them is it because of profanity/insults, you don't like what they say because it goes against your hub, you are suppressing commentary, or another reason.

What Would Happen if you didn't Approve a comment?Under new comments there is 2 buttons... APPROVE and SPAMBut what happens if you press neither? If nothing, then is the approve button really neccasary? or should it just be a default until you hit Spam?

This has been discussed a number of times, but I think it's time to bring it up again because lately I've been denying loads of comments that I view as spam. And, just now, I've been told by someone whose comments Ive denied that "hubs are here for comments". No, they aren't. If they...

have you experience this, an unverified person, meaning not a member of hubpages visited your hub and criticize your hub and photos... how are you going to react? I clicked the deny option coz it does not look good to me. Do you think I will need to adjust because being here in hubpages I am prone...

Do you accept or deny comments that leave a link to someone's website?I don't mind people leaving a link to one of their hubs but I don't know about people leaving a link to their own website.
