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.
Blissful writer, it's nice to know that someone sees the reason in it. (Extra note: There's an an extra "really" in the second line/last paragraph of my reply. I typed "really" twice by accident. lol Oops.)
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.
The friend that decided not to have comments on that hub about abortion also posted in her hub why. It was very well understood and accepted. She did receive some negative email from nasty, hateful people but she deleted them.
I'm glad it worked well for her. Mean people are everywhere... and if you say something controversial, they WILL respond.
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?
Calling it to the multillionth degree! To paraphrase the late great President Truman, if you cannot stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen!
I think you're right. And sometimes people just want to say something controversial without the risk of being taken to task for it.
Good point. If you are going to expose your thoughts to the public, you should have to expose it to criticism as well. Besides, HP is a lot more likely to comment positively than other media outlets.
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.
I don't follow you, either, Vrijdag Pages. Always leave that comment section up there. People are reading Hubs. Check out your pageviews, and don't be picky about someone not leaving a comment for you. You may get some comments down the road.
