When I tick 'Display most recent comments first' and 'Initially display 20 comments' I'd rather it display the order as it does normally (chronologically, but with the most recent comments displayed). It's a little confusing when it's upside down with HubPage regulars used to seeing it the one way. Know what I mean?
Yea I complained when the feature was added. It didn't do any good. Most I got was the ability to see most recent first with most recent on top. just sucks when you have a comment with many questions and you can't remember them all. I have to reply to whatever I remember, save the comment, scrool to the top where the comment saves, and answer the rest.
It's also not user friendly for non-HP users to have to scroll to the bottom to ask a question, although it may make people read previous comments to potentially answer their question. Typically, though, they don't read and ask the same question the 50th time anyway.

If I view my account's Comments page, it's easy to view, approve and respond to unapproved comments. However, if I go to a new comment in one of my hubs and click Approve, I cannot reply to it directly on the comment. Instead, I have to go to my main Comments page and find the now approved comment...

I get stuck in my ways, and continually get confused about settings. I keep seeing hubs (not mine) where the comments come in starting newest to last. Is this something we can do in our settings? Or is this. . . .a glitch. I don't want mine to ever do that, so I don't think...

I'm sure there are many reasons for and against responding to comments left by your readers. What do you think?
