I'd like a "respond" button on other's comments. It's hard to keep track of conversations when you're not notified of responses.
A "comment moderation" page where we could approve, deny, mark as spam, respond and view other's responses to us would be helpful.
You can see your own comments, but you just have to go check out the hubs to see if there was a response. I do see where a notification would be interesting, but it should be optional because I don't want a notification for each hub that I comment on, much less for each time someone comments on that hub.
There's one site that sends you a notification when someone responds to the blog post, and every time someone posts a comment, I get an email. It can get frustrating when you have over 20 emails from the same blog post. The optional button is great, but I usually forget it, and it's defaulted to receive notifications.
I do see though, there the respond button would work because you would only receive notifications for those who pushed that button, but what if other people responded to you, leaving a comment, but not pressing the button? You wouldn't get the notification.
it is good idea ,
but i don't think hubpges will think about this , untill 6-12 months.
Why 6-12 months? They do read these forums, and consider many of the ideas, so if they like this one and find that it will benefit hubbers, they'll put it on the list. Where on the list will depend on how important of a change they think it is.
I don't think it's that important, as see a number of issues that is potentially associated, such as the ones I mentioned. (tons of emails flooding my inbox or people responding to you without clicking the respond button that would notify you, being just two).
I don't like it personally. Typically, I remember the hubs that I really want to read any responses to. If I don't remember the hub, then the response isn't too important to me.

I was quite stunned a week or more ago when someone made a statement on one of my hubs that she had commented twice and I had snubbed her by not replying. Her comment had been particularly flattering, and probably...

It would be great if we received notification of new comments. I was reviewing my hubs today and found comments that I didn't know were there. This notification could be on the account page or, better yet, by...

I love writing hubs and I love receiving comments and feedback. However, I had over 1800 comments to mod last night. I'm still approving and denying each one MANUALLY. Will there ever be an "approve all"...

When you receive a comment on one of your hubs, do you always post back with a comment? Or, just when there is something to post back about. For example if someone just comments that it is a nice hub, do I need to...

Looks like there's no way to technically reply to comments. I guess to respond to a comment, you just submit a new one.

I'm sure there are many reasons for and against responding to comments left by your readers. What do you think?
