Why would someone with dozens of hubs remove the comments capsule from all or nearly all of them?
There could be many reasons. One reason which I have found a few times is someone who writes for the pure satisfaction of just writing, and/or someone whose hubs have received not so nice comments and does not want to deal with them.
The experts claim you should remove the comments section because this increases the likelihood you'll receive back links from other sites.
I just removed all of the comment capsules on my Hubs, but I don't have dozens of Hubs. I did this because so few people commented on the Hubs and I got tired of the spammy comments. Plus my ego got out of the way and I found I just didn't need the comments anymore, and I didn't need to have my knickers in a twist over my Hub score either. It is not as though the comments are as meaningful as a heated letter to the editor about an article I wrote. Why comment on ad copy?
It is about choice, we have the capacity to take any decision that we want.....if it is beneficial it stays, if otherwise it goes, Thanks.
I've never thought of it
but it would save me alot of time, and as Wildiris said, I don't have a big ego.....as much but for now they are stayin........
I think that with the comments section removed the article becomes more of an informational writing rather than a "Blog" type post.
If you write something that you want to have a out there for folks to read without any necessary response than I think it would be appropriate to do this.
We get enough negative feedback in the real world. Why endure it online if you don't have to? Plus, it might be a personal preference. Why invite comments when you really don't want them!?

Have you noticed it or is it just me? Do you think it's beneficial to not put the comment box? Or does the comment box help you?
