I just went back to the site, as see where 5 minutes ago a nonregistered user posted a comment to a hub of mine. The hubtivity, says xxx posted this comment to the hub xxx.
The comment doesn't show on my hub or in my comments. I searched the name that was used, to see if I missed it, and the name the comment was posted with wasn't found on the page of the hub.
I figure if it was deleted the last time, I came to the page, the hubtivity would say something about an unapproved comment posted to xxx, and if I did approve it, it would say this approved comment. The hubtivity just says, this comment, yet I can't find it.
I just visited four of your latest and no comment capsules are apparent, all gone.
I have a comment too, but sometimes it's just better to keep them to yourself.
I cannot approve or post a comment. I cannot edit a hub, and I cannot get to my stats.
Comments from known spammers get filtered out by the system before the Hubber even gets the chance to see them. They still appear in Hubtivity, but the comment is not available for viewing or moderation. This is certainly the case with registered users, and likely there's a way to do the same for unregistered users as well (identified by their IP address).
I don't have comment capsules on all of my hubs. The hub that had the comment, has a capsule.
Typically, you can still see the comment when hubpages system marks it as spam. You can go to the hub or you can check the spam scroll bar in the comment for moderation page.
Non-offensiveUser, I get plenty of daily comments, this one I just can't see.

Hi Hubbers! Today I have some news to share related to Hub comment moderation. While we have traditionally used a nearly 100% community-run comment moderation system, we are concerned because there are in fact thousands of potentially low-quality anonymous comments across the site. Thoughtful and...

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...

we all know comments effect mind of new readers who are unknown to our previous works, now the question is will you approve bad reaction of your readers on your hubs?dont you think people should know fair things about your hub not only good things but also other kind of responses?

Every time I write a Hub, I have to go into the comment module and checkmark "Must approve all comments". I would suggest that Hubpages make this checkmarked and enabled by default. I feel that it is important for all authors to moderate comments in order to prevent spam...
