    Does it matter if comments responded to are done individually/singularly or collectively?

    What is preferred?

    I answer each comment individually. I just think it's more personal that way. Then there's the matter of number of comments. I'm not sure how they figure into a hub's grade, but I'm sure they do. I also try to address each person to whom I'm responding. I read too many hubs where the author doesn't address his/her response to a specific commenter; it makes it hard to determine the flow of conversation.

      Thank you Shauna. Your idea seems to be the best way to do it. I did  it collectively one time recently even tho I may not get that many comments but usually I do it individually. Continue to be blessed!

      Great reply. I also answer each comment separately to be more personal and I like this kind of personal touch. Thanks Shauna, for this clear-cut attitude.

    Surely, it matters if the person who writes the comment gets an individual response.  Sometimes the comment asks for additional information; it would be polite for the writer to address that comment specifically. 

    When I am the writer, I like to recognize each person who is kind enough to give me some feedback. 

    Some type of bonding takes place when people talk/write back and forth to each other [even in a comment].  We get to know and understand each other.

      Thank you Dora, I knew this would spark you to say what you did. You are so right. I Seldom see collective comments and that's why I asked the question. Love your response.
