Do you think it is important to add follow-up comments when people answer your questions?


When I answer a question or leave a comment on someone's hub, I appreciate some awknowledgement. I feel surprised (and a bit "cheated" when there is no response) Am I setting my expectations too high or are people submitting questions simply to raise their hubscores?

    I know what you mean. Sometimes, I post a question or a hub, then run to work. I always feel a little bad when I see prople have responded immediately and I haven't even awknowledged them!

    Thank you! I do agree that the content of the comment/question makes a difference as far as the expectation goes.

    True. But most of the time, I think we pose the question in order to open up dialog.

    I do understand what you are saying but then I think it might make me a bit uncomfortable when commenting just in case my comments are not in depth our v interesting enough.

    I'm not sure if gratitude is the right emotion I am struggling for, here. At least not in the question section. I guess, after seeing some strange questions, I wondered at the motive and point of the "q&a" section here. Another whole topic!

    Faith, you are the best at leaving comments, adding personal anecdotes, etc! I know that our system for commenting can be tricky and suffer from that also! Thank you!

    That was my original thought about the question section. I'd you are seeking answers, whatever they may be, it is polite to respond.

    I'm nit she went out wouldn't be an option to keep up with it. I think my feeling is to acknowledge answers and comments but asking this question has helped me to better understand why not everyone does

    True and if the comment is pertinent, why not acknowledge it, too?

    That has happened to me before as well, especially when I was in a hurry to publish!

    I feel the same way. Otherwise, I'm nit sure what the point of a Q&A section would be.

    Yes. I think the comment section is there for that purpose. I don't know if I necessarily feel bad if someone doesn't reason. I think it's more that I hope they v saw my comment. Like you, I feel if someone has taken the time and trouble to comment o
