I have several pending comments I have not approved because I am uncertain if the external links they have will help or harm me.
HELP! What is recommended?
I don't even know where to look.
you can approve if they are relevant. It will not harm you.
They are nofollow anyways.
I wish we could strip html from comments anyway.
I never post links in other peoples hubs, their are many other options which provide better traffic
I never approve spam links or those ones where you cannot see the url destination in the browser frame.
I've been getting quite a few of these myself. Unverified users; i.e. People not part of the Hubpages community. They make comments and then leave a link to their site. I don't see anything wrong with that. I do look at the site to make sure it's not pornographic or illegal, then, if the comment will raise the value of my Hub for other readers and in the search engines, I approve it.
I asked a similar question some time ago and generated some good discussion. Here are links to a couple of the comments. You might be interested in reading most of the forum thread.

Thank you very much!
Aficianda, I remember the question from before - so glad to have the links - didn't mean anything to me at the time.
Each answer was a world of help.
You're very welcome.
I'm the same way - I'll remember a comment or discussion, but it won't mean anything to me until weeks or months later. Then it's hard to find.

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...

I am curious what you think about people that post links to their other sites (hubpages or others)?I have been getting lots of comments but that have links to my hubs, and it seems they are trying to promote their stuff on my pages. I am curious what you think about this and others as well....

Do you think if someone publishes a hub they should approve comments if they don't agree with answerAs long as they aren't swearing, combative or vulgar, or do you think people have the right to see both sides?

I am seeking some feedback from my fellow hubbers about how the use the comments feature to enhance their articles. I have heard that comments that do not lend to discussion and are rather short may actually hurt your article. Does anyone know if this is true? At times, I do find...

Do you accept or deny comments that leave a link to someone's website?I don't mind people leaving a link to one of their hubs but I don't know about people leaving a link to their own website.

Is it bad to allow comments with links, in my hubs?I have a hub that sometimes gets comments that are nice and applicable to the content, but they end with a link to what looks to be a business. I want to approve the comments, but for some reason seem to hesitate. Does anyone recall...
