    Do you ever "unfollow" your own hub or forum because the comments become tiresome?

    I've started some forums and written some hubs that I've almost stopped following even though I created them.  I enjoy debate and comments, but sometimes they go off in tangents and attacks and there becomes too much "chest pounding".

    Am I alone here?

    Hey cooldad...I recently stopped following the Politics and Social Issues category for that particular reason.  The inane bickering for no other reason than took a toll.  I haven't stopped following my own hubs...cuz...well...if I don't follow them...who will...?

    I've never started a hub or  forum that got out of hand. I don't know if it is technically possible to unfollow your own hub since as the author you will get updates in your comment section of  your account page when comments are made. It might stop them from being emailed to you. What I suggest you do  is close your hub to further comments. Or simply remove the  comments capsule totally. I've seen many hubs on controversial subjects start with a comment section only to have that section eliminated the next day and the hubber not have comment capsules on any further hubs on the same topic.

    I have stopped following some questions I asked, because I received the answer I was looking for.  On your hubs, you could turn off people's ability to post comments, if the noise gets too loud.

    If the comments on an article you wrote get out of hand you can disable comments so no one else can add one. I haven't had any get to that point.

    As far as the forums go you can just stop visiting that thread and no longer comment. I've noticed the religion and political ones can get a bit heated. I don't go in those.

    I'm only writing this comment to annoy you so you stop following this question.  It is an interesting question though.

    Not yet cooldad! As far as my hubs, I haven't written on a subject that would solicit what I think is an inappropiate repsonse. If so, then I would simply deny that type of comment.

    As far as forum posts; one time I did start a forum post that generated heat, but I stayed the course with it. One it showed the diversity of setiments on one topic, and two, it showed the true colors of those whose commets, were too far to the left.

    I always unfollow my own stuff, because I'm going to be checking back in with it anyway so I don't need the e-mail. I will still get the new comments thing when I sign in, and I still see updates on my forum threads in my hubtivity. The last thing I need is more e-mail.
