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.
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."

It seems that some people stop reading comments left at a hub after the hub author has responded to whatever comment they've left. This is only a guess because I've read some people's comments (other than the author's responses) and they've brought up something in addition to what was said in the...

I am literally sick and tired of people who follow you, and then, when you follow them back, they promptly unfollow you. Really, people? What do you do when someone unfollows you shortly after you follow them? Do you hunt them down and unfollow them as well? Do you send them mail saying what they...

How quickly do you "unfollow" a hub after reading it?I always leave a comment and feedback after reading hubs. I find that I like to follow a hub until the hub author comments on my comment. Some authors don't leave comments, but that's alright. I read hubs for enjoyment, so the comments...

I am still new to Hubpages and have been enjoying a rather successful start. Thank you to those who have voted my articles up and those few of you who have begun to follow me. But I have noticed one thing of late and maybe it is the way it goes but I think it is disrespectful. I have commented on a...

We recently made an improvement to how notifications are handled on comments on your Hubs. If you would like to receive a notification when someone comments on your Hub, you will now need to "follow" your Hubs. If you had previously configured a Comment Capsule to email you...

How do you react to hubs with comments disabled?As a hub reader, how important is it to you to be able to comment? Does it frustrate you when you are not allowed to comment on a hub? Will you still vote on that hub? Will you follow an author who disables comments? I wonder if disabling comments...
