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 as I regard it as a matter of courtesy.
I try to, and if I miss a comment it is unintentional. But everyone has different circumstances, and if a hub has a lot of comments it can be a challenge to acknowledge every last one. Also when I post a comment, I am not necessarily expecting an acknowledgement.
I always try to respond to comments; not simply out of courtesy, but out of appreciation. It means a lot that someone took the time to say something about my hubs, So, of course, I respond, even if it's simply to thank them for reading.
I try to respond to comments but most of the time I don't simply because I forget. Also many of my comments come from random people on the internet who are not likely to come back and see my response.
I try to make a point of responding to everything. I did have a computer blowout for a couple of weeks and I know I missed some because my phone is a pain to navigate HubPages on. But, yeah, I think it's only respectful to answer a comment.
I have noticed a real drop in views and comments. I posted 3 hubs and normally have tons of comments from followers and there have been very few. Not sure what is going on.
But, if I have comments, I always respond to them as I am grateful for their time and comments.
Yes I always respond no matter how many comments have been left. Also if I've missed a comment then I apologise to the sender. If people have taken the time to read your work and more importanly leave a comment, then the decent thing to do is to acknowledge it. Personally I think it's very rude not to respond to readers.
I always respond and actually look forward for the ability to interact with fellow hubbers...both those that agree and those that don't.
I always respond to my comments, and try to do so, as fast as I can so my readers will know that I appreciate them for stopping by. I notice that some people do not, or if they do combine several hubbers into one comment for their response. I feel that is not helpful for you , because it doesn't show true gratitude, at least not in my opinion. I respond to my readers in individual comments.
I do that on regular basis just to thank the hubber for the time s/he has taken out to read my hub and commenting on the same. Every hubber should follow this as it binds hub fraternity together
As a newbie, i personally feel flattered and honoured that someone has enjoyed my hub enough to take the time to leave a comment. I love receiving comments but i enjoy more replying to them and engaging in conversations and forging new friendships
On a further level, i feel it is the author's duty to respond to each and every hub as a matter of courtesy and respect..
YES, I absolutely make a habit of responding to every comment that I receive.
Not responding to another person's comments is just plain and simply bad manners. We all have time-constraints but that is no excuse for not responding.
Even if you do not agree with what has been said it is your opportunity to reply why.
I always respond to the comments on my hub page articles, because people have been kind and thoughtful in making wonderful comments, and I just feel like replying to those comments. ......And, I have been making some wonderful friends because of all of our communication back and forth.

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

I was quite stunned a week or more ago when someone made a statement on one of my hubs that she had commented twice and I had snubbed her by not replying. Her comment had been particularly flattering, and probably because I've spent a lifetime being flattered by others only to find that they wanted...

Do you feel that people should respond to comments that are left for them on their hubs?i personally enjoy the feedbak left to me, as well as the opportunity to get to know my fellow "Hubbers" but I have noticed that there are many hub authors who do not respond at all or only selectively.

How important is it to have a comment section on your hubs, or How important is it to respond?I was going through some of the hubs that belong to some of the top paid hubbers ( info found on the success story page) and a lot of those people do not respond to comments. In fact, many of their...

There has been some controversy over comment feedback on hubs recently:http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/52513As well as people who aren't fond of "low quality" or "I'll comment on yours if you comment on mine" mentality:http://hubpages.com/hub/Why-I-prefer-un …...

Why is it that some writers do not respond to individual comments on their hubs?I noticed this with some writers who have been on HP for two years or more. They will choose to respond directly to some comments and ignore the others. Doesn't it make you feel like not commenting on these writers...
