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!?

We just released a small update to the site. Among a slew of bug fixes and small updates, there are two notable changes.The first is that you can follow the comments on a hub, and receive email notifications when new comments are made. Just click the follow button near the top of the...

So, this is the third time HP has snipped Amazon from my hubs. Every time one of my Hubs is edited by HubPages to add to a network site they snip any Amazon capsules on the Hub. The Amazon capsule is always extremely relevant to the topic discussed and is not spammy, yet HubPages doesn't seem to...

I've never been able to understand why the comments capsule is optional. After all, we have the ability to moderate and deny comments if we don't like them. Seems to me the only people who wouldn't want comments are the spammers, so why do we make it easy for them?

Hi again...I'm just curious about setting up my account. I have multiple topics (not related to each other) that I want to ultimately write about. Should I creat multiple accounts of this? Or, should I have multiple Hubs within the same account?Thanks!Andrew

I wanted to provide a heads up that two formatting tweaks will be made to the Duel Capsule in the next couple of days: 1. The big blocks of text next to the 'post comment' buttons will be removed. 2. The column sizes will be evened up. That's all!

Is it counter-productive to your Hubscore to have dozens of incomplete hubs on your statistics?I often have an idea and start off the first part of a hub only to put it on hold as another story peaks my interest. Does the number of work in progress articles influence your rating and does...
