    Why is it, that so many hubbers, write hubs, but they never seem to respond o acknowledge comments?

    I have been around on hubpages and have found that this trend is definstely on the increase.
    People take the time to read your hub make a comment, surely some sort of acknowledgement would be correct

    I try to do that for every comment.  Lately I am not getting notices about comments to my Hubs or when someone answers me here in answers or in forums.  So sometimes I honestly don't see the comment.  I don't know if it is a glitch. But I do try to acknowledge everyone's comment.

    Because some of us have overfilled lives outside of HP. Personally I do not comment back on all comments. Some yes, and if a question is asked I will answer, but I'm not going to type thank you every time someone writes "Nice hub". Why? Well 3 children, a husband,  and 2 jobs pretty much sums it up. Anyone who has read me enough knows I appreciate their time and comments. Personally I can't stand when people do something just to get something in return. I'm always grateful for my readers, but my life does not revolve around HP.

      That certainly makes sense when you have as many followers as you do.  smile

    When I first joined HP I wasn't aware it was common to respond to comments. When I figured it out, I had already been here for a while. I try to do it now, but every once and a while some comments just don't demand an answer, especially when it was a back and forth between me and someone else. I don't need to have the last word.

      Sometimes I agree, there may be the occasion when it becomes a debate type of thing.

    It's a nice thing to do, but not everyone can.  I don't think it is an obligation.Like, most people I enjoy getting a response, but it is not a big deal if it doesn't  happen. Some lives are very busy. Some hubbers get hundreds of comments  a day.

    After reading all of your comments, it seems as if that original Spirit of the Hubpage Community, which some of the older hubbers may remember, has to an extent, has sadly dwindled.
    If you examine your capsules, you can delete the comments box. You have other tools which tell you if you have unconfirmed comments.

    The purpose, as always saw it, was to promote a community of like minded and kindred spirits, to showcase there love of writing, sharing recipes as well as imparting knowledge.

    To drop a quick "Thank you", is a common courtesy which one would extend if, in the real world, would be automatic?
    One wonders!

      I disagree with your observation. I think you are basing the spirit of HP on replying to comments (often wrote only to gain badges). Wouldn't you agree it's more valuable to go read that person's hub or profile than a simple thank you?

      It may well appear so to you Peeples, and we seem to differ in our opinions.
      So I can agree to disagree, on this subject.
      Have gone through to your profile and had a quick read on some of your hubs. Liked the Garlic Hub.

    If someone has taken the time to comment on one of my hubs, I always thank them and then answer any queries they may have raised. The only time I wouldn't is if it is a SPAM message in which case I deny it. I think it is polite to answer genuine comments and always try to answer them as quickly as possible.

    If its anything like me and Deviantart, after a while I just stopped caring.  Sure, at first I would reply to every comment, then after a while I was just like, "Eh, I'm too lazy"  Its that same attitude where people will "Fav and run", or favorite a picture without leaving comment.

      So as a fellow artist, be it words, photo or whatever! We are a vain lot, and sometimes we, even though we know we are the greatest! Still a bit of ego stroking goes a long, it inspires to even loftier heights.
