Do long comments detract from a hub?

    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.

      When I get something like that, I ask the person if they would like me to publish it as a guest post instead..

    Guest post on a hub? I can see that on a blog....

      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 .
