I'm not sure if what I did was right in the first place but I got so sick of someone asking me to visit his hub by posting only links in the comment box of my hub I finally decided to delete one forever.(There was no comment on the MY hub)
Has anyone had this dilemma?What did you do?
Uma, I almost never allow links to be posted in comments of hubs. I think there has been one instance of me allowing one, which ultimately produced legitimate traffic for both of us, and we actually corresponded about it before I allowed it.
You don't have to put up with this spamming, my friend. No worries about it. Just hit "delete" and be well.
Simply denied the comment if someone post links in hubs.
Uma - it's your hub, you can delete any comment that you want to delete. If someone is just spamming, get rid of them. This may deter them from that obnoxious practice. I've also had comments that made no sense at all.
I quite often delete comments or at the least not approve them - it's fine and you spent time making that hub so you can choose what comments you want to appear.
However I do approve about 95% of my comments. If someone leaves a really good comment with a link I normally leave it. Sometimes I copy what they said and approve it without the link as well.
Don't feel bad about it though!
I agree with Dolores, it's your hub. If you feel you were being harassed, you have every right to protect yourself.
Unlike household junk, such comments do have zero value to you and others as well, so don't feel bad about getting rid of them.
As the other have said, all this is your prerogative.
Even putting up the comment box in the first place, as you could have totally closed that option. In my mind, it is more of a privilege to be able to leave a comment on anybody's hub.
And besides you'd know in your heart if a comment was left in good faith or not, so nothing to dwell about it.

Someone left a good comment on my Hub and also dropped a link to their site. The site is right on point with the subject and looks like quality. I would like to approve it, just wondering how Google sees it, whether it's treated as spammy or rewarded. Don't remember the deal with links in comments....

What's the point in having a comment box if the particular hubber denies every comment posted on the hub?I noticed a comment on a hub, so I read it. It wasn't a bad comment at all, just something that I would see why the hubber wouldn't want it on the hub. IE it was opposite of which he's trying to...

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?

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....

I published my first political hub and it was featured as all my hubs have been.I cannot believe how ferocious one particular political hubber is because she disagrees with me. This one person will not stop. I answered two of this lost soul's comments and received answers that were too...
