    If you answer someone's question and they don't respond back, is that bad hub etiquette?

    I personally don't think so.....sometimes there just isn't time to respond back.  I could be taken as rude for saying that but I really don't think folks are checking back to
    see if there's a responce all the time.

      Thanks for responding. I think when you're newer to HP, you're excited and eager for responses so you check back to see if you've gotten any. I certainly don't expect everyone to respond, but it's nice to feel acknowledged sometimes.

    I think it is bad etiquette to not acknowledge people.  There are many people on here that are obviously not interested to the answers to their questions by not acknowledging the people who have taken the trouible to answer.  It would be considered rude to not acknowledge some one who answered a question, face to face, does asking on the internet give leave to be rude by not acknowledging?  I wonder why they ask the questions, perhaps some kick out of seeing their name or alias up on the screen, their 15 minutes?  Perhaps we would get rid of the rubbish, inane questions on here if it was deemed neccessary to respond by the HP team.

      Well said Mick S, I love honest opinions and I welcome them. You make some interesting points. I sometimes wonder if they're just asking questions to earn their alcolades.

    The comment option on answers is new. When it comes down to it the answers section is not meant to be for conversation, that's what the forums are for. I think we may be taking it a bit far to suddenly expect everyone to respond to every answer. These questions are meant to bring in google traffic. People coming from google aren't going to care if there is a thank you or not.
    Personally I comment when I see fit, but I will never thank every person who answers my questions. My questions have produced over 1500 answers and quite honestly I don't have the time (and if I did I'd rather spend it with my kids) to respond to every single person here. My lack of response doesn't mean I don't appreciate their answers.

      Thanks for responding peeples. I've still got a lot to learn here on hubpages so any feedback helps.

    No, i think that maybe he/she doesn't have time to check on all the answers if he/she posted so many questions. However, i try to comment those who answered my questions. Politeness makes a great deal.

      I agree peachpurple, being polite is kind of like karma in a sense, what goes around comes around. Thanks for responding.

    I feel that responding to answers is optional. I don't respond to every answer I get, nor do I expect all of my answers to receive a comment.
