Do you leave pointless comments on hubs just to increase your hub score?
I don't think leaving pointless comments is a good idea. Pointless comments don't encourage people to reply and they also don't encourage people to visit your profile. I hope HubPages does more than just looking at the number of comments that you've made to determine your personal HubberScore.
No. I don't really understand nor am I interested in my hubscore. I post my writing here because it is fun to have it read and I enjoy reading others work.
yes. I want to make 5 cents more so yes indeed i do this....................
Not generally. I didn't even know that was part of the metrics for a hub score, to be quite honest with you. I try to leave comments only if I find something that has really moved me or prompted me to unexpected thought. Also, if I think it's good enough to vote up, I like to explain why I've done so, beyond just the useful/funny/awesome/beautiful click.
I agree with rieom that I only answer questions that I can provide information to however I would probably comment less if it didn't affect my hub score.

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...

There seem to be many hubbers who have no published hubs and are still allowed to comment on other people's writing. While there are some hubbers who are simply new and asking questions before diving in, it seems that some people open accounts purely for the purposes of making comments, often nasty...

Does it bother you that people visit your hubs and don't leave comments?What's more important to you, getting tons of traffic with no comments or getting less traffic with comments?For me, I love to get comments because it lets me know if I have touched someone or given someone a new way of doing...
