What do you do when you have such a ridiculous comment posted on one of your blogs that you are really tempted to approve it, just so you can blast the reader?
Okay, not blast...I've been thinking about "polite" responses I could add. Remarks that would make me look even better :-)
When someone comments, if they are a "hubber", does their name link to their profile before you approve the link? Can you post a comment without signing up as a hubber? I was hoping to get a little more insight about where this person was coming from, but I can't find a hubpages profile for them.
I don't think this comment is from a spammer, just a....I have no idea how to describe it.
What do you do with (not just negative) but crazy? comments?
It depends on what you mean by crazy. If I thought I could produce a scathingly effective riposte to make them look silly, I'd approve it, then post my own comment in reply. Otherwise, I'd just deny it and be done.
If it's a Hubber, you'll be able to click on their name to go to their profile (which won't always be completed, but that's a different thing). If you can't click on the name, then it's someone who is not a member of the site.
I don't think most hubbers post ridiculous comments anyway. They usually make either positive or negative comments that make sense. Crazy comments are normally made by people who are not HP members.
You can deny outside comments when you post or edit the hub. I've never gotten a bad comment from a hubber. Every one I ever had to deny was unregistered. Of course, that doesn't mean it wasn't a hubber in disguise.
You can set comments so that only logged in members can comment. Yes the members name does appear in the comment. I would deny the comment and then send them a message.
Thanks, everyone. It was not a hubber, and I ended up just denying.
well my comment box was flooded with rude comments from a group of kids and I had to remove it!
.I'm still waiting form someone at hub teams to respond
1. Edit your hub.
2. Edit the comments capsule.
3. Check one of these boxes in order to prevent anonymous comments and/or require comments to be approved before they appear:
[X] Only signed-in users may post comments
[X] Comments must be approved before they appear

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...

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...

It there a way we can allow comments and at the same time "Disallow" the hyperlink? Especially for the non-members of Hubpages.Sometimes the comments are OK to allow, but I may not want the link on my page, especially when multiple links on multiple hubs are the same. I know I could...

Should I deny poorly-spelled comments? Are they deliberate?I had a comment left by "Justin Beiber" saying: "Feeli'n bad for em' all" on an article about animals going extinct.I get a lot of comments like that. I'm starting to think they're left by people from rival sites trying...

Hello, I know I suggest too many new features, but I noticed that it is very easy to respond to comments on the HubPages iPhone app. I have the comment right in front of me and have three choices underneath, "Deny," "Approve," and "Reply." I just click on...
