    I've come to hubPages from another writing site and I LOVE it here, except for one thing. I would prefer if responses to comments would show up directly UNDER
    the comment being replied to. The way it is makes me feel...disconnected..from the person I am responding to. This seems fairly basic, no?

      It would make it easier to reply to comments, and follow the train of thought as you read through them.

      Can we ask for this feature? It cannot be that difficult, can it?

    I'm not sure if this is what you mean but in the top right of this page you can select 'threaded' and the comments are then reorganised accordingly. The alternative (default) is 'chronological'

      Thanks Rik, and you are correct. But I believe that this discussion is about comments on hubs. You are talking about posts on the forum.

    I agree that it would be better if the Hub comments too had an option for threaded comments to appear where they belong. For example, I wrote a Hub about the dangers of eating mass-produced meat and people started debating the pros and cons of vegetarianism, with two distinct camps, almost like on a religious forum. Perhaps more readers would leave pertinent comments with a threaded system. It would certainly encourage more discussion and discourage useless generic comments like "nice hub" from people who don't read hubs.
    While we are on the subject of hub comments, I also feel that rewarding Hubbers with a high or low commenter score is unnecessary. If anything, it encourages useless commenters as  described above. Surely it's not the number of comments you leave, but the quality and relevance of your input that matters.

    You can actually reply straight underneath the person who has commented on your hub, just go to the reply button underneath their writing and it will open a box for you to comment, you don't have to go to the bottom of the page to do it. It will not show up when you click comment until you go off the page then back on, where you will find your comment placed down the bottom again, okay?

      I'm glad you said that.  I had just recently noticed that feature and I like it, except I seem to have "lost" a reply I made.....maybe it's my mistake...

      @nellRose: yes, but Nell, I'm saying the response should STAY with the comment - as it does in the question second here - and not go to the bottom.

    Nell Rose, even though we can type it in that way, the comments appear in chronological order on the hub.

    II agree, threaded comments can get confusing to keep up with, especially if someone references a comment that is further down on the page. 

    I like the chronological order, but would prefer to be able to put my comment in between other comments, so that the one(s) I am replying to is/are immediately above mine.
