Do you take the time to acknowledge comments on your hubs?
Of course I do, anyone who doesn't acknowledge them risks losing readers. Besides, it is only common courtesy.
Yes because after seeing everyone else do it I feel like I'm supposed to.
Unless something happens and it slips my mind, I always answer comments. I should respect the time they took to write the comment.
Always acknowledge comments on your hubs. To ignore the comments would rob you of the true HubPages experience. Interaction with your fellow writers will not only help you as a writer....it helps you learn what others think of your hubs and your writing and that knowledge is priceless.
Absolutely. If someone is kind enough to read my work and comment, then I am very grateful and want them to know it.
I always acknowledge comments, if I have any; problem is nobody gives comments anymore although I know that I got some 5,000 viewers who would vote up on some of my hubs. Even my questions and my forums are not replied or responded anymore so I just have to stop asking questions and had stopped expecting for comments. I just write when I feel like doing it, many readers, commenters or none.
I do unless they're aggressive, bigotted and mean spirited (at which point I need to think about it....)
O yes, I always do my best to get back to those who took time to comment! I know I get irritated when someone ignores my comment, so I don't want to make my readers mad!
I always reply to comments in my hubs! I think if someone is nice enough to leave a comment about my hub then it's my responsibility as the author to respond!

Do you find that leaving comments and replying to them increases your stats, or does it take you away (time wise) from writing hubs?

Does everyone ALWAYS respond to comments on their hubs?Suddenly there seem to be a number of hubbers who are not replying to comments left, even after a week. Is this common? Do you always respond? I know I do; if I've missed anyone's comment then it hasn't been intentional...

I'm sure there are many reasons for and against responding to comments left by your readers. What do you think?

For years I have been diligent about responding to questions left on my hubs. But now I've discovered comments are being published on my articles without appearing in my Comments section, so I look like I'm rude and ignoring readers who go to the effort of writing.Today I spent ages waiting for...

I have been writing for Hubages for over a year and I am still trying to figure out how to get my readers to comment on my articles. Is this something hubbers should even worry about?

Do you think it is important to add follow-up comments when people answer your questions?When I answer a question or leave a comment on someone's hub, I appreciate some awknowledgement. I feel surprised (and a bit "cheated" when there is no response) Am I setting my expectations too...
