In my hub "The bad effect of kaingin farming ..." , a certain Justin Morada has posted a comment "Lapa!" What does he/she mean by this? I've deferred approving or denying it. Thank you.
In Spanish, it is an insult. The word means "limpet", but it is used to tell someone they are clinging on like a leech, that they are being boring.
There is no word in the English language for the Spanish word "lapa" but as WA said it is most often used to describe someone who acts or behaves like a leech.
It would also be dependent what region of the world the commenter is from. There are quite a few number of variations in the use of the Spanish language, for example in some parts of SA lapa refers to a parrot like bird.

Are we penalized on our hubscore when we post a comment in the language in which a hub is written to a Hubpage that is not in English written by someone else?
