After getting an influx of spam comments, I took the advice of other hubbers in the forum and changed my comment settings. I published a hub after that and realized after a day or so neither another hubber's comment nor my reply to is showed up. I could see in the capsule that there were 2 comments. I went into edit mode and changed things. I even went back to the global comment settings and changed them back to "factory settings:" all put to configure per hub. But alas, still no comments showing up, and they were both approved by me.

Thanks for the suggestion. Of course the obvious happened. After posting the question (and a few days of trying to find out what was wrong previously) the problem corrected itself a few hours after posting this question.
