The year started with an amusing find in my comment section.
I wrote a hub about Saints lately after the reading the story of a dual wielding Saint. I mean he is a stuff of epic movies! This inspired me to compile a list of warrior Saints. Then one day a comment popped out. He is a hubber but I won't name him as a form of respect. He seems to be concerned on how I portrayed a beatified samurai s a violent Saint. At least that's how I understood it. I then thanked him and tried checking the hub for inconsistencies. Then he reappeared with another comment saying that some saints here should not allowed themselves to be martyred as it is violence in itself. Then I calmly explained to him that these Saints have no choice as they are facing death over betrayal.
And he reappeared once more with another comment that they have a choice and should not be martyred. They should be more alert to evade capture. Again I explained to him that they are in the age of persecution so they have no choice.
And he answered a day later, saying that martyrs are failures for they have no respect for their own lives. I answered by saying that martyrdom is crucial for the survival of Christianity, then he compared their martyrdom to the muslim martyr.
I think I'm being roasted in my own hub.
But then I kept feeding him for it benefits the traffic. I'm not sure if it's the right thing to post the link here. Just comment if you want to see it,
But that's not the end of the story.
I saw a great hub about Joan of Arc. I made a comment on how I love the Saint, but he suddenly appeared and said that she must be deluded for she hears voices. Now it is one thing to flood my hub, but it is another to insult the Saint I respected.
What do you think guys?
Apart from what he said about St Joan, I'm not really upset on his comments in my hub. Again it benefits the traffic and made my hub more visible.
Warrior Saints borders on religion to some since these are specific to certain religions, classes etc. ie: Knights Templar and such.
When you touch on religion you will always have a split reaction, it's unavoidable in my opinion.

How important is it to have a comment section on your hubs, or How important is it to respond?I was going through some of the hubs that belong to some of the top paid hubbers ( info found on the success story page) and a lot of those people do not respond to comments. In fact, many of their...

I've come across a hub, now and then, without a comment section. Is this a choice made by the author? If so, why?

Is it appropriate to point out typos in a hub in the comment section? I ask because I would want to know if anyone found typos in my stuff, but I'm not sure whether or not everyone appreciates that kind of thing, politely worded of course.

What happened to the reply button on the comment section?I have realized the reply button is becoming available only after you scroll all the way down to the comment box, type your reply and hit the post comment button. Anyone with an explanation to this?

I keep getting 4-5 spam comments daily from witches and spell casters that I would like to stop. How can I block them or stop them from spamming my posts. Its becoming like a job to keep deleting them every day.

Have you noticed that when you go to write a hub you now have to put in the comment section. What is up with that, Do people realize it is not there anymore? I didn't realize it at first. I went to comment on someone's hub, and no comment section. Okay, so who reads the 'announcements?'
