I swear I looked, but can't find an answer to this question. Is there a way for me to skip comments moderation? I don't really mind who comments or says what on my hubs. The only thing that concerns me is abusive comments to others who may have commented. Can a comment be deleted if it isn't moderated?
Does that make sense?
I think ,within one of the capsules (probably the comments one) is the option of how you want comments managed.
So you would need to edit your hub and check it out that way.
Hope Ive steered you in the right direction, if not I opologise.
Oh it could be via 'Activity'button which lemme think ,go to Accounts -then look for 'Activity' on the left will be other options.
If none of this helps -forget you ever read this.
The moderation features are in comments capsule, just click the edit button. By default all comments are pre-approved and send an email for notification.
If you prefer not to get email notification, all you need is un-check the option.
Yes, you can set it so that comments are published automatically. You can set it so that you get an email whenever some submits a comment. Then you can look at the comment that was already published. If you don't like it, then you can delete it afterwards. However, by then it might be too late, because the comment is already published, out on the internet, someone may have already read the offending comment and would have possibly gotten their feelings hurt already.
I usually recommend to every blogger and author that they should always moderate comments. Never let comments be auto-publish.
I understand that it may take too much time to moderate. I wrote a Hub about how comment moderation doesn't scale: http://hubpages.com/t/221856
That's why I sometimes disable comments. In my Hub article, you will find a link to another blogger's article that is titled "Warning To Bloggers: Moderate Your Comments: Never Auto-Publish."

What happens if you don't moderate your own comments? I tend to forget then go in and do a bunch at once. But I was wondering if the failure to moderate them meant they couldn't be seen or weren't counted or something?

Currently all comments I receive on my hubs are set to be approved or denied before being published. I cannot find where I can disable it (or enable it later, if I want to).

I went to my Global Comment Moderation Page just now to check if I have any new comments. To my surprise I saw a whole lot of them. But then upon closer scrutiny I noticed they are all mine, comments I left in other people's hubs as far back as three years ago. EDIT: Additional info: I realize...

I noticed that comments I leave to other peoples comments has a message to moderate my own comment. What does that button do. When I comment back does it automatically appear?

There is a new feature that shows all the comments you haven't approved or denied. I had 20! I never knew. Sorry you guys. I didn't mean to ignore you. I just went through and approved most of them. I'm glad they added that feature. When you have hundreds of hubs it's hard to catch a new comment....

I have a hub where I would really love to close the comment section. Its just a bunch of kids taking things too seriously. If I choose to close the comments then I'd lose all the comments or they won't be displayed. If only there was a feature where we could close the comment section from having...
