Do you continue to comment on an author's hubs when you can't edit your comment?


I just commented on a hub, then decided to add a sentence. My comment showed on-screen, but when I clicked on EDIT, I wasn't allowed to change my comment or even delete it. I can't see the benefit to a hub author in limiting a reader's ability to edit his/her comment, and won't comment on this writer's hubs again. In fact, I will probably not read any more of them. Sometimes we have an afterthought that we would like to add to a comment or we might need to change a typo. Not having that option seems unfair to me. What do you think?

    Hi, Dr. Mark....I've made comments where what I wrote didn't show on-screen and knew the writer had comments set to be non-visible until approval. This instance was different. My comment showed on-screen immediately, but I couldn't edit or remove it.

    Perhaps I'm being too critical. I normally don't mind when the comment doesn't show at once, but thought if it did show (as in the instance to which I referred) it should be available for editing.

    You're right about the "heaven forbid" error! Just as with any medium where you can type your thoughts and hit "submit", you might decide you want to take something back almost as soon as you click, but it's out there.
