What do you think of getting one-word comments?


How do you feel when you get one-word comments on your hubs? I can't decide. I'm really pleased people bother to comment at all, but at the same time much prefer getting longer comments. I don't think I've ever left only a one-word comment on a hub or on any article online before. I would be afraid that the author wouldn't let my comment through and would think I'm only after exposure, and besides, if I bother to comment, I feel it's decent to leave more than just one or even more than just two or three words. What are your thoughts on your hubs getting one-word comments?

    Awesome!

    Naw, I'm just joking. I agree with you completely. I would be happy that someone posted on my hub but I would be offended because that means that they didn't give that much about my hub.

    Lol, no problem Nate, this question is just for interest to see what other people think. Although I prefer longer comments, I can live with one-word comments! Oh, and welcome to HubPages! Hope I haven't welcomed you already? (My turn to come clean!)

    Thanks for your thoughts, I'm not overly worried about it, and I don't think many should be worried - was just curious as to what others thought of getting one-word comments.

    Your "just a thought" answer is good, and thought-provoking. I think if somebody just votes up, interesting etc, it's better than leaving a 1-word comment, as the vote up etc doesn't promote the commenter, but they still show appreciation of the hub

    to add to this question we should also ask that what type of response we give back to the comment er comments we receive. Do we even bother to give one word comment response to the comment received.
