    What irritates you the most about how readers comment on your hubs?

    Let's face it, some people provide useful comments, others constructive comment, however others may be rude.  What habits or behaviors irritate you the most when they comment on your hubs?

    The only thing that really bothers me is when people comment on my hub with only negative things to say. Some people mean it in a nice way but don't need to comment on my hub to point out its flaws. As for anything else I don't really care. I have a blog where all people do is post links but it doesn't bother me.

      Some are really vocal about their opinions.  Sometimes they are more tactless that helpful.

    I find it irritating when all I get for a story is "interesting". It's not the worst word they could use but I want to hear more about what they liked and didn't like.

      I guess some people need more adjectives.  I like to read other people's thoughts rather than just adjectives.

    I guess I welcome any kind of comment just as long as it doesn't include any kind of profanity or insult. Comments don't bother me at all.

      I agree with you.

      So far I have not encountered really rude hubbers.  But I know several other communities that are just awful.

    It bugs me when people use comments to push their own agenda rather than actually commenting on the article.

      I know, sometimes they seem like they're really commenting but after reading, you'll understand they're pushing a product or service.

    Spam!  Somehow I've gotten loads and loads of it, often in unreadable script.  This content is not by hubbers, however!

      I got several of that as well.  I just deleted them.

    I haven't had any problems with comments. I haven't had but two that were questionable and I deleted them. I am just grateful that someone took the time to comment after reading my work.

      Comments are supposed to spark more discussions about the topic and share views.  The time they game to read the hub is really appreciated.

    Honestly I've not received any rude comments on HubPages... Spam yes, but rude no. One liners comments (great hub, voted up) generally give me the feeling of "Present Sir" big_smile with the allusion to "You should come read mine". (Some people don't bother with allusions, whether it be fan mail or comments, they specify their motto in clear words wink

    One word comments are worse, they are rarely worth the effort of clicking the button smile 

    What irritates me most is that why can't a person spare 5 extra seconds on a comment? Why don't they realize the potential of good readership? Of all people, how can authors not differentiate between follower-ship and readership?

    Comment are best if they simply present your thought/reaction after reading a hub - even if it's a oneliner. An accomplished short story writer posted on my short story, "Whoa! Keep it up!" It made me happy smile So IMHO choice of words would make a great difference when comments are one word or one liners.

    By the way, I loved this question smile

      I sometimes feel the same way about one word comments.  I would definitely love to see more meaningful comments on hubs.  When I read other hubs,  I also read the comments and comment on other people's comments.

      Yup, that's sometimes a very good way of enhancing a hub. And since as authors we would like our hubs to enhance, we should try for same thing for other hubs. What goes around comes around smile
