When I checked my email this morning I had two new comments for Chapter 3 of my book. When I logged in and went o my hub, the two comment were the exact same comments I made earlier in response to visitors comments. I have not denied or approved them.
When I clicked on the hubber's name that was supposed to have left the comment it took me to a jewelry website.
Should I report this?
Yes I would report it, and take advice from the hubpages team as to how best to proceed if other action needs to be taken.
Thanks Earnest, I think that's the best thing to do.
@Cardisa - Unless I am mis-understanding your post -
- this is a fairly common occurrence - and isn't really something for the hubpages team - it's just someone trying to use a comment for a backlink
- yours wasn't really too blatant if the url was only in the sig., many also try to include links in the text of their comments. HP doesn't allow html in comments but will allow url addresses and makes them hyperlinks
- easiest solution is just edit your comment capsule to require comments to be moderated before they appear live
Why didn't they just write something different? They copied two earlier comments I made word for word, so now I feel weird approving them, they will be obvious to my readers that they are the exact same words I used. On the other hand I do feel bad denying the comments.
I already reported it. But I guess the team will let me know exactly what occurred.
Should I deny these comments? I've never done that before no matter how rude someone is.

There are two newly discovered hubbers who have only posted raw translations by using online translating tool, what they did was merely copy and paste the results without doing any further modifications. From the comments they replied, you can tell they don't really understand much English. Even...

How do I report a harrassing hubber to hubpages team?A hubber was offended by one of my hubs earlier today. He or she left an insultng comment, and apparently put a link to my site somewhere with some negative dialogue that is causing angry people to visit the hub and leave angry comments.

The box for Submit a Comment looks different, much smaller and square. I can write comments but it does not register, as soon as I press "post comment" the text dissapears. It is happening with every single hub I try since yesterday.Any ideas?

I know there have been some trolls on HubPages and I have already contacted the staff to see maybe if they could help me with my issue.I have an occasional guest commentor.. His messages are disturbing, but I'm wondering if he sounds familiar to you. I wish I could remember all of his comments,...
