    When reviewing a comment on a post, you find that it is disjointed, and lacks punctuation, do you approve it?

      If someone commented on my hub, I would approve it. Even if they are critical of my hub, I approve - why should we only approve positive comments?

        That was my first inclination also. I do not want to judge.
        What really got me thinking about this was something I read here about content generators, and how they are used to post and create hubs. I'm not sure what a content generator is, but this comment sounded very similar to what was being described. I have since cut and paste the comment into another post under this forum topic  if you would like to view it. I am very new to all of this, less than a week, and I definitely want to give and get grace. But the discussion I remember reading was concerned with quality of the hubpages in general. And I do realize that comments probably do not affect the overall quality of hubpages.

      Here is the comment that I am speaking of:
      I do remember how wringer washer and put rubber diapers through that wringer diapers and explodes and I ruined a couple of shirts

      Did you ever get anything caught in a wringer?or ruined a couple of shirts?

      an article of the wash may

      wrap several times around a roller before it is noticed; unwinding such a

      piece is often difficult, sometimes impossible without removing a roller.

        The person took the time to comment. What harm in approving?

      Why not? maybe they're typing in comment from a phone.

        Thank you for the input. I never thought about that. It is much harder to type from a phone.

    I generally approve all comments except the very obvious spam -- i.e, a comment that is about buying a new cell phone app when the hub is about cooking or something.
