When a comment appears for moderation there is an IP address under approve/delete - who does this IP address belong to?
It's the IP address of the person who left the comment. That feature was added some time ago to better help Hub authors spot and report abuse issues in comments.
tip: you can google the ip address and find out the location of the person. I gather it is linked to the service provider, but not 100% percent sure on that.
Try googling it... you will be surprised at what you find!!!
Thank you every one - this is very important as some new information was left on one of my hubs - thanks
Just remember IP address's do not always to point to the person's direct location. When I lived in MN, our IP pointed to Denver because that is where the company's servers were located

Just looking for folks' opinions, here...Would you approve or delete as "spam" a comment that, while acknowledging and making a sensible comment on your hub, is essentially an advertising link from a commercial entity (who apparently does have a presence here on HP) ??The link is to...
