Why is there such a small character restriction on replies to comments in Questions?
It's almost impossible to reply adequately.
I think the intention is that more involved interaction between hubbers should be on the forums rather than here. It does seem frustrating at times if you try to reply and get cut short.
Either to encourage people to "make a Hub about it" as in the button below, or as innerspin says, to discourage lengthy discussions that HP would rather have on the forum.
I think it is a different art. I do not know why, but it makes us reframe and go lateral and all condensed.
Abraham Lincoln was asked how long it took to write the Gettysburg Address --- the response was that it was easy and took a few hours. He added, but require me to write, give, a 5 minute speech and it will take days.
Me, I work at them to help me be more concise.
