    What will you do if someone called you a different name in your comment box?

    A non-hubber had commented in one of my hubs. He/she called me a different name -- the name of the commenter before mine. I was confused, but I replied "thanks" anyway and included my name at the end of my reply. If you were in the same situation, what will you do?

    agree...if someone goes to the effort to make a Comment or reply at my Hub, it is by definition to me.
    I think of how many times I have written Comments in other blogs (blogs that don't have the 5 minute edit window that Hub Pages has), and thought to myself, 'that was certainly a well reason Comment'. No sooner do I hit 'send', than I see that I spelled the word 'recieve'... happens more than I would like to admit.
    Great question! (I was going to do the obvious, 'wrong name' joke, but I thought better not).

    This very thing has happened to me, by the same responder.

    The first time, I turned my head, the second time, shivers went up my spine, on the third time........I sent a friendly email..........

    to the effect of.........I appreciate you as a reader, and I value your comments, but may I correct you on my name?

    Make the correction, quietly and discreetly..............you will feel better, and save them undue embarrassment.

    ( a 'relationship' was born )

    Well, living in another culture has made me somehow thicker skinned than before... I used to hate it when people teased me about my accent or cultural mistakes - not anymore!  Call me a different name - no problem!  If someone read and was benefited by my hub, to the point of posting a sincere comment then Woo Hoo!  Tell them they should at least vote your hub up while they are at it!
