Why do hubbers turn off commenting for an article?


Especially if it is a "Stir the pot" type question. What is the point of taking time to write articles, sometimes very well written articles, then turning off the comments? We all know the Q and A doesn't provide ample room for any real conversation/debate. So I have to wonder what is the real reason for turning off the comment section for articles that we know aren't written for google and are clearly written for other hubbers.

    I guess I was referring to articles that clearly intentionally are starting a debate with other hubbers.

    You are why I wrote this Q. You have a couple articles I wanted to add my opinion to that weren't really something I could write a Q about because it was opinion, not question.

    You think that includes me? I shut down a comment section with a reason, and I added several hubs with questions in them for full comments. No takers? I delete comments, as an example when someone uses a tasteless pic, like Donald Trump Naked!
