The "Comments" part of all of the hubs needs a complete overhaul. I can't reply to 90% of the comments left on my hubs, and the order of the comments makes no sense.

I notice you have had a lot of your hubs moved to niche sites. Do you realize you have to be logged in to those sites before you can reply to the comments? Go to the top of the hub, click "sign in", and add your user name and password.
You should be able to reply to 100% of your comments, David. Are you opening your 'Comments' page? Get to it via your feed page, or stats. Click on 'Comments'. That's where you approve, deny, reply etc.

Do you find that leaving comments and replying to them increases your stats, or does it take you away (time wise) from writing hubs?

Well, I got my first nasty comment today; the question is how to respond. The comment is on a hub about personal integrity and morality standards going down hill.Comment:wilderness probably got beat up as a child...
