    Have your comments been ignored?

    If you spend the time to read a hub and leave a comment, does it bother you if the author acknowledges all the other comments but yours? And do you just forgive the oversight and continue to follow them?

    You could also ask yourself, why does it really matter if they acknowledge it or not? I don't make comments on hubs to get a reply and I often don't go back to the hub to check unless I have asked a specific question.

    I don't think it would bother me but I do believe it's good business to acknowledge compliments and comments. But people are very busy. There also seems to be a culture here that I've not yet eased into, being new, so I dont let stuff like that bother me. I just think positive and keep working. :-)

    Very fair question..  comments are for their benefit..  sometimes when a comment is super helpful they read it and move on  in most cases an oversight.. but if I comment and they do not acknowledge I won't unfollow them because it's their work that had me following in the first place...  Good luck my friend  Frank

    When I comment on someone else's hubs, I have no expectation of being acknowledged or responded to, unless the author has something meaningful they choose to respond with.  So no, it really doesn't bother me at all.  I do enjoy getting an interesting thread going with my readers and other authors, though.

    My two cents: I love and appreciate when people comment on my articles, If I haven't responded it is totally an oversight! I want to acknowledge every single one, it opens discussion smile. I don't get offended if someone doesn't acknowledge my comments, but I certainly love it when they do. It's nice to be acknowledged for efforts but not always possible, some people are very busy and I'm sure as their popularity goes up it makes it harder to respond to everyone, still I think an honest effort to do so shows gratitude. Gratitude is a good thing!

    this is an interesting question. I'm answering since you explained further, and I can't say. I am following a couple of people whose work I enjoy who tend to not respond to me beyond thanks for the comment, but leave other comments more detailed. I got so I didn't leave comments, but I still read them because I enjoy the writing. But I did stop leaving comments.

    I find most hubbers do respond to comments left and i certainly respond to every comment someone has left me as i feel that this is only polite and i do appreciate that others have read my hubs and that they've taken the time and effort to comment.

    This however is not too arduous a task when you only have a small number of hubs.If i had hundreds of hubs that received a lot of comments it may become a bit more demanding but i would endeavour to do so. Whilst i often do notice (and may even be a little irked :-))if someone doesn't acknowledge a comment, i don't take this personally and would not necessarily unfollow someone for this reason alone.

    It doesn't really bother me. If I leave feedback, I don't need to get fed back.  I just like to show appreciation for great content.
