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?
I have been called many things some of which i cannot repeat, but i just turn my head, smile, and like you say thank you with my real name.
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.

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!

Is there a way to close the box for Global Comment default selections after we have set them? I miss seeing the comments right up at the top, replaced by this Global Comment Capsule box.I know to scroll down to get to the first comment, but is it necessary to see this choice every time I address...

There seems to be someone posting a Spam Link on hubs. I have reported it from my hub. I am wondering if others are getting this person on their hubs also? What this person does is "Copy" a section of Your comments and "paste" them in the comment box. The Name listed by the...

If a visitor to any given hub makes a comment I believe that's a good thing. But what if that visitor leaves a link, usually embedded into their name, to another website or another hub. Thsi has happened a lot and generates a lot of questions in my mind.For example; If the hub is on back pain and...

What do you think of getting one-word comments?How do you feel when you get one-word comments on your hubs? I can't decide. I'm really pleased people bother to comment at all, but at the same time much prefer getting longer comments. I don't think I've ever left only a one-word comment on a hub or...

Hey Hubpages Staff,I've been a member for 15 months now and have been told countless times that "Share with Followers" is NOT to be used by the author of a hub.Then why is it that the FEED is loaded with Hubbers promoting their own work?

There are two issues that have led me to make this suggestion. One is that I recently received an email from a person who claimed he couldn't find the comment box on one of my hubs. The other issue is that some claim that scrolling all the way down the page to the comment box at the bottom might...
