What are the pros and cons of someone leaving a super short comment with the sole purpose of linking back to their own hub? Should they ask first? I'd love to hear thoughts about this.
Unless it's truly relevant, I deny that sort of thing. Most of what people have left in my comments has nothing to do with Hub topic itself.
What about hubs on the same subject though?
I guess it just irks me for some reason. I mean I love it when I do link exchanges with people - but we always agree to it first.
I think I'll be deleting it since there is no compelling reason to keep it.
Yes - but what I'm trying to say is what about when it's just a link back to another hub on the same topic? I know when spam is spam and that just gets deleted - no questions asked.
Unless it's a really good quality Hub that adds more relevancy to my own, I'll deny those too.
sometimes the links left on comments go to a page that says site does not exist. why does that happen?

So, I've always thought it was the polite thing to do to reply to commenters, and thank them for their time and input, and I've made an effort to do so consistently.However, I'm wondering if this is now being...

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...
