I think this is more a moral/personal issue than a HP rules one (correct me if I'm wrong).
If you have a comment appear for approval that contains someones contact details (email or IM information) do you approve it? If it's on topic of course.
I guess I've seen some bad outcomes from people spamming their information all over the internet. Is it our place to monitor this or just let them write what they want as long as it's appropriate to the hub?
Just wondering what other hubbers do!
I don't approve comments with contact details in them - I assume the person is too naive to know better themselves, so I feel it's my responsibility to protect them.
I think you shouldn't approve such comments.
I do not approve any comment that has detailed information in it.
I don't approve comments with contact information, but I have no problem with comments containing a link to a service-related website.
I get a lot of these comment where someone will briefly remark on the hub and then leave their email address to want to get to know you more. Usually, the comment is 'wow' or something of the sort, followed by personal details. I just delete.
I used to leave them but when I couldn't post a backlink on their site, I now delete them...
Spammers aside, there's also occasionally someone who doesn't realize it isn't the wisest thing to do - so for any number of reasons, I wouldn't approve any.
I haven't had this issue...yet. (?!) Glad to see what everyone else does.

This has probably been addressed elsewhere but I haven't found the answer yet. Is it ok to post a link to your own hub in the comments section to someone else's hub on the same or similar subject? I just found such a post in a comment on one of my hubs and don't know whether its a good...

I have to read everyday the comments in my hubs. People are posting writing services, essays, etc. How can we protect from that?

For the last ten days I do not seem to be able to reply to the 12 comments that I have received on various posts. After having read an article and having left a comment, that does not seem to work either. I have mentioned this glitch on the hubpage Facebook pages and now again here. Please...

Do you approve all comments on your hubs, even if every third word is a swear word? I'm just wondering if it's normal to do so or if it's normal to just delete it.

I tried to post this in the answers section-where I think the question should be-but I kept being told the question had already been asked by someone else-not true-and I couldn't post it. This is directed only to hubbers who tend to respond to all comments left on their hub, rather than never...

If I view my account's Comments page, it's easy to view, approve and respond to unapproved comments. However, if I go to a new comment in one of my hubs and click Approve, I cannot reply to it directly on the comment. Instead, I have to go to my main Comments page and find the now approved comment...
