What is the reason the hubs, and questions have a comment field
How is this comment field to be used, are there limits on how to use them, other than number of words?
It was my understanding that the comments are for exchanging ideas rather than for accolades.
If someone writes something that doesn't seem to be true, or it just doesn't make sense, isn't that one of the reasons to use the comments questioning the writing and not the writer personally?
Is the comment box, a method for dialogues or not?
Conversation. I think they are for an open dialogue. Some people like me get cranky and not nice -- when we are like that, we should leave them alone.
My friends encourage me there or offer suggestions. But I cheat, I go ahead and call most my work sermons. So my following is low but made up of folks that disagree in a really nice way and I learn from them. And a whole bunch that just uplift me.
And then see I can comment on my own answer and say more like I appreciate your writing and question.
Thanks for the good comment, and a good reason.
I view the comment field as an open, blank canvass especially with the original reading of Answers at a Question. I pretty much do not comment a lot. Sometimes I am inspired to paint something and sometimes not. I am known to simply say "Agreed . . ." and at times "Thank you . . ." or betwixt and between too. I do use it now and then for inquiry and return. That considers my poor memory it seems.

I hope Robin will come by and comment on this one. I have been going through all of my old comments and deleting any that don't add anything to the conversation, but some of my hubs have a ton of very useful and informative comments. I don't want to throw the baby out with the bathwater.What makes...

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?

Needing some constructive criticism regarding my second ever hub. I crafted what I thought to be a clever and informative article that would help the reader renegotiate a lower wireless bill with their provider. But after one day its been down-voted 5 times. Wondering if anyone has any advice to...

I know, odd question. I don't have a LOT of followers, in fact, I have rather few, but in some cases, I have wondered why. I have read over the profiles of a number of my followers, and notice that we share minimal or no interests, our hubs are on different topics, and despite the...

I know that it is against HP rules for someone to place a link in a comment of a hub, but is it okay for someone to place a link in a comment when answering a question, even if it directs people back to their hub? Also, it seems to be okay to place links in the forums' comments, as the link...
