Drink recipes - Pimm's Cup by Kaili Bisson

I looked at 5 more of her Hubs and they all had the comments box turned off. I also noticed that Suzanne Day, Phyllis Doyle, and even Kenneth Avery (among others) were following her. Go figure.
Do you think it is in error? I wanted to e-mail her, but I have no e-mail address through HubPages to contact her. Can a moderator assist?
I was following a hubber who had really interesting hubs but I could not comment. At first I thought she just forgot to have the comments on that one hub, but every hub she published no one could comment? I felt bad as I am sure hwr hubs would have received a lot of comments.
There is no requirement that comments be on each Hub nor that they allow comments.
How comments are used is up to the author.
I know that someone can choose to opt out on comments but I never heard about Fan Mail and email.
Yep. They are controllable here.
But where can you control fan mail, or am I missing something?
It is the "Allow others to contact you?" setting.
I've got email turned off using that setting, but I still receive fan mail.
I've forwarded a message to our engineering team to get further info as I have tested that setting on multiple accounts and it currently appears to be behaving differently for each.
On one account, for example, I unchecked "Allow others to contact you?" and then sending fanmail was no longer displayed on that profile. Checking it then returned the option to that same profile.
I have since done further testing and other accounts are not behaving in the same way.
I will let you know if there is a setting of which I am not aware or if there is an issue we need to track down and address.
My understanding is that the message at the bottom of the page will not stop the option of fanmail on your profile, but simply won't email them to you, but again I am double checking to make sure.
Just bring up her profile, click fan mail (on the right), on the left in blue you see "Send soandso an email". Click on that and there you are!
Authors have the ability to turn that feature off too.
Have you tried leaving Fan Mail? While authors can approve or deny messages, it can't be disabled, so she would see your note.
You can only leave Fan Mail for a person once in my experience. Is there the possibility that the two of you left fan mail for this author at some point in the past?
Matthew, I can verify that when I used to have email contact disabled, I still got plenty of fan mail.

Why do people write personal fan mail notes, but yet haven't commented on an article?Am I the only one who sits in utter amazement at people who send personal fan mail notes telling you how wonderful, inspiring, creative and informative your writing is, only to find out they have NEVER even written...

I'm reading an awful lot about Hubpages at the moment and while a lot of it is going in, not everything is and I'm certainly not very good at being able to reference back to where I read it. Frankly it's all very new!One thing which concerns me is fan mail. I've got a vague recollection of reading...

For several months now (almost since I joined hubpages) I have been getting harassing, threatening and ridiculous comments from the same person. I originally encountered her in a forum, and she has not left me alone since. She repeatedly leaves me harassing fan mail, none of which has...

Try as I might, I can't respond to any comments in my hubs. I can add a new comment, but I can't directly reply to comments. I sign out and then sign back in, both on HP and the niche sites.How can I interact with my readers if I can't respond?

It is important to actually read the hub you are commenting on. It seems that every time I publish a hub I get at least one comment saying something that proves they didn't read the hub. In the future I will be deleting these comments even though they are well intentioned. It will better for your...

Have you ever had inappropriate fan mail left for you on HubPages?By inappropriate, it could be a comment on your appearance rather than your writing, an obscene comment, or along those lines. I have received a few and want to check if I have company in this respect. Also, did you accept the fan...
