I guess my comment comes under the "gossip" category. I just had a comment on one of my hubs that was a duplicate (somebody must have a fast finger) so I decided to delete one of the dupllicates. The options are "Approve" "Spam" "Delete" or "Delete Forever." I thought "Delete Forever" sounded pretty ominous, but I clicked on it anyway. To my surprise, up popped another option: "Undelete."
I guess "Delete Forever" wasn't so ominous after all.
It hangs around for a while before kicking in, just in case you want to change your mind.
The undelete option, along with the comment in question will disappear as soon as you leave the page. We wanted to give you one last chance, just in case you mis-clicked or something.
Thanks Relache and Paul. It just tickled my funnybone.

I read a recent comment but when I clicked on "approve", a pop-up said something went wrong and I should try again. I tried a number of times but the same thing happened. It said to report the problem. Now the comment is gone. Maybe the commenter deleted it but...

Is it ever justified to delete reader comments?Do you ever delete comments on your Hubpages? Sometimes we get inappropriate or over promoting comments on our hubs, how do you handle the situation?
