    Whose comments do you value the most?.

    What is rare we considered precious. So whose comments do you value the most? A Level 2 Commenter or a Level 8 Commenter.

    I value those that connect and make sense. Something I can use and grow from. Otherwise it is just a rotten fruit.

    A level headed commentator. I get the most out of the comments that disagree with me in a respectable way. Agree to disagree if you will. I think of myself to be pretty open-minded and these comments make me analyze and even challenge my own beliefs. They may reinforce them or make me see something I missed. It's healthy and keeps me in check.

    I usually don't pay attention to the level of the commenter. I appreciate each and every comment I get, and even more those that add some information or an interesting little story. It's just a little added value to the hub.

    everyone! I appreciate all comments, regardless of what level they are. All are valuable to me.

    The level has no bearings for me.  However, the level of talent the commentator has is a big factor.  I admire quite a few her on hub pages and when they find a story or poem of mine that interests them enough to leave a comment, I'm extremely flattered.  Good question!  P.S.,  Your one of my fav's!

      I agree. The level does not matter, the content does.

    It is the author who can decide. The hubs are written by hubbers after making a thorough research as nobody would like to write a bad articles. A thief can write very good article on "How to make a Theft" and a cheat can write "100 Tips on How to Cheat". The public does not want to be cheated or burgled. But if you are convinced about the tips given you can take preventive measures not be cheated or burgled. If I explain in a different way if you start writing a hub on "Tips to safeguard against hacking" them the best commentator will be the experience Hacker knowing everything about hacking. You may or may not like such comments coming in but from the core of your heart you will cherish those comments and feel proud that comments are coming from superior people in that field and commentator may even join the HubPages just to comment upon your Hub Article without knowing even ABC of HP, what to talk of level of commentator.

    I have no limit or clasification for commenter in my mind. I always appreciate all the commenters because everyone's has his/her own personal point of view and level of understanding. It is very important for me to know their point of view or the way in which they think and comment.

    Honestly, I value all comments. It doesn't matter what their level is. The numbers simply tell me how active they are in leaving comments. In my mind, a Level 8 comment just means they do a lot of commenting. A Level 2 commenter can leave a comment that is just as engaging as a Level 8, so it would be difficult for me to pick one. But, if you were twisting my arm for an absolute answer then I would have to say I value the Level 8 commenter the most.

    I appreciate all comments, but especially those left by non-users. When you get comments from people outside HubPages, it means your work is reaching a wider audience.  If the only people who leave comments on your articles are HubPages users, regardless of their commenter level, then you have to wonder if anyone outside is viewing your work.  In that case you might want to pursue search engine optimization strategies and try to get others to link to your work.  Getting more outside views also means you earn more money.  Just something to think about.

    Every comment is valuable and welcome, irrespective of what level of commenter, the hubber who is making the comments has reached.
    It gives a great feeling of satisfaction, that the hub has actually been read/ viewed.

    Keep in mind that commenter levels go up and down.  They depend on your frequency, not total number of comments.  If you are a Level 5 and stop commenting for a long time, you might go down to a Level 3 or 2. In any case I don't even look at the commenter's level.

    I actually appreciate all comments because I also learn from other hubbers. Comments show your hub is being viewed and of some interest to others.

    I appreciate content more than any number given. I love well worded, respectful comments, even when they run counter to the opinions stated in the article being discussed. I'm not so fond of trolls who try to pick out the most niggling detail and try to expose it (and the rest of the whole article) as wrong somehow in the most disrespectful manner they can muster. Honestly, I don't believe that makes me look any worse for wear, it just makes them look like an ass (which I am always happy to point out.) And call me sentimental but I have one piece I wrote as a teenager that was directed at other intellectual teenagers (it was a speech) and it always makes my heart swell a little when they ask if they can read it to their classes with credits given or just comment on their gratitude for finding it. I never knew any of my writing could touch an audience like that piece has shown me. Its a special feeling and encourages me to go on.

    I usually don't even pay attention to the level of the commenter. I appreciate anyone's compliments and or advise. The only time I have noticed a difference is when a question is being asked or a forum is in progress. Higher level commenters generally indicate a more experienced hubber, but not necessarily a more experienced writer.
