    I got a comment on one of my hubs today that said--

    "hi friend am glad to ve met your presence online this day. i am new in this lovely site and want to know the reason why i should continue to remain in this site. thank you in anticipation"

    I thought about giving a nice inviting answer, but since it has no relevance to the particular hub, my radar beeped.

    Did any of you have your presence met in this way today?

      I don't know.. think I'll let it ferment for awhile, the person does have a brief profile.

    I think that person just won themselves a comment deletion due to irrelevance.

    Congratulations, Rochelle! Unfortunately, my presence wasn't met in this way today.

    Rochelle, it must be because you look so wise...

    To me, comments like that have the following subtext: "I'm way too sexy to bother doing my own research about whether this site is worthwhile for me or not, so I'm going to waste someone else's time by asking them.  And the person whose time I'm going to waste just happens to be you.  Aren't you the lucky one?"

    If I get a comment that does not make any sense, I delete it. Or if it has nothing to do with the hub. Or if it's just a list of crap I don't even know what they are talking about.

    Nope, my presence was not worthy of this attention either.

    Well I'm feeling a little bad-- but I  did finally deny the comment on the basis of it having nothing to do with my hub on growing sprouts, "in so far as much as I can tell".
    I am always intrigued with interesting phraseology, like the one I quoted above and the aforementioned one about meeting my presence online.
    In all seriousness (seriousness can be little difficult for me) I do like to encourage new hubbers and have great admiration for those strike out to accomplish something in their non-native language.  I looked at his hubs and they are obviously original, both in content and in manner of expression.
    I hope he does well, but I think a reply would not help too much.

      Hi Ms. Rochelle! Hmm, maybe he is not familiar with the culture of "what not to write in somebody's hubs" or the proper forum to ask somebody's help etc. You are a helpful lady that is why you are slightly bothered by deleting the comment. I will try to answer him and tell him what he needs to do. In my case, I usually get lots of emails about nasty things.

        Yes--  I agree that there may be a cultural divide, and a learning curve to consider. It may be better  for them to seek that on their own, by  trying, learning, reading,--- even failing.
        I agree with what some others have said.  I'm in no way an expert here. I can sometimes offer encouragement, but my advice is limited.
        Occasionally I have a "100" next to my avatar, but that doesn't mean I know everything.
