    How many times should you comment on one Hub?

    I notice most people comment just once, as do I; but sometimes I've felt the urge to reply to the author's reply to my comment. Is there some etiquette involved here?

    I do not know anyone that does not love to get additional comments. The back and forth is sometimes the best part and gives a lot more clarity to a hub. Go ahead and comment back if you have something to say.

      That is good to hear, and I was thinking that; that an author would appreciate the feedback and comments. Thanks!

    The only thing I don't like about comment section is that most readers do not comment more than once. For most of the times, I do return to the hub of my interest and post repeated comments, especially if there is someone to exchange views with me. This includes responding to the hubber and also to other commentators. I think that makes a hub interesting if there is an exchange of comments going on. IMHO, all comments don't have to be extra nice. I would actually love to see a constructive criticism and a healthy debate (argument if you will) going on, but then this may not be to the liking of everyone.

      Makes sense: Get the discussion rolling, have a good dialogue, learn some things; good for hubber and those in discussion, plus readers that happen by the Hub. I can see that.

    As much times as you want Nate. And I am sure that hubbers will appreciate it.

    There are no rules about how many times you can comment in a hub's comment section, and most authors appreciate thoughtful comments and even answers to their reply to a comment.  However, I don't think that a hub comment section is the place to have a long back and forth discussion with either the author of the hub or another commenter as we have forums that are more appropriate for lengthy discussions.

    Some authors may welcome many comments from the same person, but others might not appreciate it if someone hijacks the comment section of their hub by writing a rebuttal to everyone's opinion. Of course, the hub author does have the authority to approve or disapprove any comments.

      Yes, Stephanie, that's what I was considering; not wanting to hijack the comment section, not wanting to dominate it or divert things in some manner or another. It happens in the non-Internet too situations too, at meetings, at social events, etc.

    Hey, if a conversation happens then I can just keep commenting and commenting.

      I can see exactly what you mean, Keith. It is a very natural thing.
