    Do you always follow the hubs that you comment on?

    When you comment on a hub, you automatically start receiving emails every time someone else comments on that hub. If its a popular hub, you might get 20 emails a day alerting you that additional comments were added...Is it considered rude to check the "unfollow" button under the "Hubs You Are Following" under your account? This doesn't mean you are "unfollowing" the hubber, just that particular hub, right? I understand why you need to see all the comments added for YOUR hub, so that you can properly respond, but I'm only talking about other peoples hubs that you have already commented on.

    That feature is only for your own convenience, in case you want to see if someone comments on a hub that you have commented on. No one else can see if you follow a hub or not.

      Okay, thank you. I won't be hurting anyone's feelings if I unfollow after I have seen a response to my comment...very good to know! Thank you

    I usually look to see if the Hubber has replied to my comment. If the Hub gets massive amounts of comments, I will unfollow it to keep my e-mail somewhat unclogged. I will unfollow questions, too, if they get tons of comments. I tried turning off the e-mail alerts, but I missed too much and I always seem to get distracted when going through those "here are your recent notifications" daily e-mails. I'm following a lot of really active Hubbers and I try to keep up on their HP activity, so I need those instant alerts.

      Thanks Georgie, I also am following very active hubbers and I love getting the emails that tell me when they have published new hubs. But these start to get lost among all the "new comment" emails...Thanks for sharing your perspective!

      Something I do, which is a feature of Gmail (don't know if other providers do it or not) is, when the comments to a particular Hub start piling up, it will "nest" them, so I'll see HUBTITLE has (6) new comments. I can delete them all at once.

    I will often leave it on for a few days and see if an interesting conversation develops. Usually it doesn't, so then I "unfollow."
