I rarely comment on hubs; however, when I do, they're usually ones that randomly grabbed my attention because they either relate to a topic I am interested in, or one where I would like to learn more. I only comment if I have a question or am impressed with the hub.
I comment on hubs where the author has obviously put in a lot of effort, particularly if they go to the trouble of using original photos. I leave a comment on hubs by hubbers who pay me the courtesy of leaving comments on my hubs. I also make a point of commenting on a new hubber's hub, even if it is to be encouraging and perhaps make a helpful suggestion.
I always vote up if a hub seems worthy, but I don't think I have ever voted down. I simply don't comment or vote on hubs that cause me concern.
Sometimes I come across a hub that has been up for years but still has no comment. It may well have lots of traffic and be making money for the hubber, but I try to leave a comment there because hubs look kind of bare without any comments at all.
Usually, I comment on every hub written by the hubbers I follow, unless the topic is something I don't want to deal with (which is not often).
Also if find articles that interest me when I browse, I'll read and may comment.
I believe that every one appreciates feedback; I do so I do unto others what I would like them to do for me.
I at least vote up (if I feel the hub deserves it) and click on the description for each hub I read. Most of the time, I'll at least leave a few words about how much I enjoyed the hub. If I have questions about something that was written or a little more to add, I'll add that.
There are three factors that would encourage me to comment on a hub... If the hub is informative, interesting, and well-written.

Do you continue to read hubs of those you follow if they don't comment on your hubs?When you have limited time do you just comment on those who regularly comment on your hubs?

I am not looking to name names here as this happens quite a lot on Hubpages, but can someone please clarify whether or not it is against the rules for a Hubber to come to your hub, leave a comment and then include a link to one of their own hubs as a part of that comment. I know it says under each...

How do you provide comments on hubs? Do you write them immediately or come back after thinking?When I comment on hubs, I typically visit at least twice. The first time when I find it and decide I want to read it, and the second time when I leave a comment. I usually set aside a day to read many...

Does it bother you that people visit your hubs and don't leave comments?What's more important to you, getting tons of traffic with no comments or getting less traffic with comments?For me, I love to get comments because it lets me know if I have touched someone or given someone a new way of doing...
