I know all the true writers on Hubpages love to get feedback on their hubs. But I find that sometimes, even if I really enjoy a particular hub, if I get to the comments section and all the comments so far say "8 months ago" I feel like I'm beating a dead horse. At least as far as leaving feedback goes. But I know on my own hubs I would still love to receive comments no matter how old the hub.
Is the time/date stamp really neccessary? Does anyone else feel this way?
I find it as the only indication of how long a hub has been around. So I like it.
Actually, that's exactly what my issue is. It dates the hub, which may or may not discourage the person reading it from leaving a comment.
Let's say you read a hub, and when you get to the comments, the last comment says something like "5 months ago". You might think to yourself, "this hub hasn't been discussed for months", that it isn't "active" (for lack of a better term). And you might feel less inclined to leave a comment, or that if you do, there will be no response.
But maybe it's just me. I guess I just like to know that I might get a response from the person who published it. I was just wondering if anyone else felt the same and if the date/time stamp is really necessary and what purpose does it serve?
I was wondering about finding hubs by a date function.
That actually makes since... I can see where it may discourage unregistered users who found the hub from a search engine or other source from posting a comment. They may think that there hasn't been any activity to the page in months, so why post a question since no one will probably answer.
Actually I wish there was a date for the hub itself, so when I'm reading something I know what the context in which it was written was. If I feel I have something to say about it, I will leave a comment regardless.

Doesn't bother me one bit. I laughed and see the patheticness in these people so much now but decided I wanted to post about it and see if this has happened to anyone else. On one of my poems here is what someone wrote,"I am concerned about the image you selected, a silhouette of a woman...

Look at one of your articles and check out the format for the Related Hubs. On mine it now looks like a list.

I'm just wondering as a newbie here (four weeks yesterday, if my math is right ) if it's common practice for hubbers to write hubs with the intent of ridiculing or tearing apart other hubbers? I've recently experienced this and handled it in my own way well enough (I think--I posted a rebuttal...

Do you comment on older hubs (over 6 months old) or do you prefer to only comment on new hubs?
