Commenting on own hub needs better feedback message.

    When I as author put in a comment to my own hub, I get the message saying ...

    "Your comment has been submitted.
    However, it may not appear until it has been approved by the author.
    Thank you for participating in the Hubpages community."

    But I am the author.  And I can see that it did automatically approved my own comment.  Perhaps HubPages developers can change the wording on this to say that comment is automatically approved whenever it detects that the hub author is commenting to his/her own hub.

      You must have a setting on that Hub that requires a comment to have your approval before it's published and visible to everyone else.

      Since you are the author of that Hub, your comment should get published automatically despite that message. The message might just be a quick reminder of the setting you've chosen for that Hub's Comment Capsule.

        Yes, that's right.  I always set my comment modules to always require moderation.   I think everyone should moderate comments to avoid possibility of spam getting through.
