    Okay, I know this is silly, maybe even stupid, but I got this comment on a hub of mine about Silly Bandz a few days ago and I don't know if I should delete it or approve it.  I usually have no problem doing either, but this one has me stumped.  It's obviosuly written by a kid, just how old I have no idea:

    "i love silly bandz when i have them on i feel like im in a whole new world. I have had them for three months i am getting new ones soon i cant wait . I love Logan M his in my class i . im going to his hous for dinner tonight i am metting his parents im scard i hope it goes well . Hes here i got to go i love silly bandz!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

    I started to compose a response that was very "mom-ish", but decided agianst it.  What do you think I should do?

    maybe just address the comment and thank them for reading. I take it it is a comment from outside HP?

    Correct, it's not from a hubber.  Thanks for your advice, RebekahELLE!

    It's a very cute comment.  I don't understand your dilemma. Why would you worry about whether or not to approve it?

    If it were my hub, I'd say something along the lines of:

    Hi (posting name used)! I'm glad you enjoy Silly Bandz! Good luck with Logan and his family!  Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a nice comment!

    KCC - thanks, you're right.  I guess I was trying to read too much into it because the comment sounds so immature, yet she's talking about going to a boy's house to meet his parents ... yet it is not my place to judge.  It's the mom-of-two-girls in me wanting to attack!

    I will take your wonderful advice and roll with it!

    Sounds quite interesting. And, you'd be correct that is sounds like a kid wrote the comment. I would just address the comment as it is seen and just be grateful for their visit. smile

    Thanks, Cags!  I tend to read into things when it's not necessary.  Used to be a criminal investigator - must be where it comes from!

    I'm sure it IS a kid....but c'mon....Silly Bandz are geared for pre-teen girls.  I have lots of kids comment on my birthday party hubs.  Kids looooooove to comment.

    I guess I was caught off-guard because I've never received a comment from a kid (that I know of, anyway) and I'm going to shut up now because I'm just making an ass out of myself!  Thanks, fellow hubbers, for the helpful comments and goodnight!

    Saying thank you sounds good and it is a nice comment I think it should be kept:)
