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.
Part of getting traffic to Hubpages (and the other sites) is to engage readers. That won't happen under the current comment system.
The Wordpress system works better than this system. Why can't something like that be done?
I have no idea what you mean "the order makes no sense" as my comments are always displayed by date, which makes sense to me.
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.

so how do you feel about people who write hubs accept the comments and don't reply to them? I find myself doing that about 80% of the time because I run out of things to reply. also because I am a bit lazy. also because I wonder if you comment how you would know whether I reply or...

Is it only me, or are there others who think that it should be a common courtesy to reply to comments made to a hub. I always reply to comments made by my followers and others, and people who I follow do the same. I have noticed however, that some hubbers have comments left on their page, and they...

When I post a comment to someone's hub including a question and they approve it, but do not answer the question, does that mean they have no manners? In your opinion.

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