Does it bother you when hubbers leave generic comments on your hubs?


You know, the person who always leaves a comment along the lines of, "This is great information! Thanks for sharing!" You know that they didn't read the article. You know that they didn't give it a thumbs up or vote it as interesting (or even give it a thumbs down); instead, they are just leaving a comment for the sake of getting you to their hubs or leaving another comment. Does this bother you or do you feel as though it comes with the HubPages experience?

    Wow! Very good answer! I especially like the 'We don't know enough about other people to categorize them as being a certain way by virtue of the feedback they leave.' - Very thought provoking Hawaii :)

    But is a generic comment really feedback? Feedback is when someone listens and then responds, not pretends to listen and then respond. So, if they don't read the article, yet respond, it's like they are pretending to listen for their benefit.

    That's interesting; it is much different in the world of blogging than it is in the world of HubPages. People go to great lengths to remove spam comments that are just a quick, "Great article! Thanks!" because they add no value to the article.
