    What is the difference between Q & A and the forums now that answers on the Q & A have a comment option?

      Beats me. 

      The only real difference I can see is that comments on the Q & A have a character limit, so you can't have long, detailed debates about anything.

        @ Dubuque Dogtrainer - Many of those who answer appear to be genuinely interested in the question and give knowledgeable answers. They often answer  questions in their expertise. The questions and answers sharpen my brain, for one, and is a learning experience. The forum is a discussion of opinions on a particular topic. Both serve a good purpose on HubPages.

          Hmmm...I have had a different experience on the Q & A....and will be more cautious in answering so thoroughly now that I have had others steal my answers to write their own hubs. Also, some of the questions on the Q & A are quite more like discussion questions or polling questions and it is often unclear as to the difference between the Q & A and the forums....however, I think I understand now a little better since receiving an answer from the HP team.
