It would be nice if the comments module could support a bit of formatting. Bold, italic, underline would be nice. It helps communication to be able to emphasize occasionally.
Also, the space after paragraph seems to go arbitrary at times. Sometimes it's there, sometimes it's not.
Just a thought.
Bold, italic, etc *would* be nice.
As for the extra space after a paragraph, I routinely "Edit Comment" and remove them. Only takes a couple of seconds. Would guess it saves bandwidth on HP's servers too (hint, hint).
I do that sometimes myself. It doesn't always work however. Sometimes I want a new paragraph, without a space, and hitting enter to move the sentence down one line puts in a space no matter what. I've even encountered a few instances where it put in a double space.
Would be interesting, and I've thought about it as well. But, I also see people, especially those who aren't users of HP over-using the bold feature. I mean, as it is people constantly use all CAPs, which is irritating enough.
I take that extra space out too, but it sort of bugs me that I have to do that (although, I guess, I don't "have" to do it).
I've thought it would be nice to have a way to add a simple smiley. Maybe it's the nature of the Hubs that I tend to write, but I often find I'm wishing I could add a smiley, just to make it clear when some responses are really friendly. Also, sometimes I'd just like to add a smiley to let someone know I appreciated their comment.

I just have to mention this: I read the comments on Hub of The Day, and there is a Hubber that has made 2 very rude comments to the author. She has approved the comments, I suppose. I just think it is...

I published my first hub today. The first comment I got remarked that my hub was funny. It's not. I can see that maybe a scan of the first paragraph might lead a casual reader to think that the hub may be going in an...

I recently visited a forum in which someone posted a paragraph of nonsense the kind you get when someone spams your website blog. There was a reference to depression in that paragraph and it attracted people from all...
