I got a comment that is longer than the whole screen. Does an overly long comment detract from a hub? This one does contain pertinent opinion, but sheesh, way over done.
I see no reason not to. Or you could encourage them to sign up under your referral.
You could take a comment like that (with their permission) and weave it into a longer hub, too.
I do think excessively long comments can detract, especially if poorly formatted.
Because of the nature of some of my Hubs, I'll get "monster-long" comments. Because it's serious stuff, I'll try to address those "longies". Those are the Hubs that get scores of - like - 98/100; so I'm under the impression all that commenting helps a Hub. I just figure people don't have to read the comments if they don't want to - but I know what you mean, too.
It would feel like reading another hub, I recently had one comment like that, I just copied a sentence and Googled it, and my suspicion was right, it lead me to some article copied word for word, I quickly denied it. The writer had no opinion of his won just copy pasted stuff from elsewhere.
I know people copy sometimes, but I can tell from the comments on the type of Hub in question that the person read the Hub, make reference to remarks I've made, etc. I have no guarantee they're not phony, but since they don't give off the usual hints of phoniness, that's what I go with.
i dont think so. They actually make the hub more insightful .

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...

Will having too many comments posted on a hub be a cause for concern? Could too many comments make a hub less google worthy? I have one hub with over 200 and that seems excessive.
