Why do people post hubs without a comment section?


Every now and then I come across hubs with no comment section. Are these the result of simple oversight, or perhaps people not familiar with the various elements you can add to hubs? Or do they just not want to interact? It seems odd... blogs and web sites; even articles in the New York Times and major magazine web sites allow for comments/feedback. For me, it detracts a bit from the quality of the hub. What do you think?

    Yes, those are good reasons and I agree with them. You with over 1800 followers, surely it would be time consuming to moderate all those comments.

    Good point... sometimes it might be nice to let people know they don't have a comment section. I have nothing against outspoken hubs, but it strikes me as a bit cowardly to be controversial but not accept that there can be consequences.

    As you said, this IS a community web site. Why be part of a community if you're not willing to be open to the community?

    Arlene, agreed! If you're not willing to deal with other people having an "opinion" about your writing or viewpoint, you have no business publicly displaying your opinion. Go write in your own journal, or private blog.

    Calling it to the multillionth degree! To paraphrase the late great President Truman, if you cannot stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen!

    Thanks for commenting. Not sure I follow your line of logic, however... if you remove the comment section, it seems to be you will ALWAYS have a "limited number" of comments.
