    Could hub pages increase the word limit we are allowed to comment for Q&A?

    I'm sure that most of us who Ask and answer a lot of questions wouldn't mind if the word limit was brought up to 500 or so from 250.
    I believe that it would help Hubbers explain themselves better online.

    ...or do they?

    They allow questions with yes or no answers then when you say YES they make you say more than yes or no when you read:

    [Your answer is too short. Please make it longer].

      You asked"Could hub pages increase the word limit we are allowed to comment for Q&A?"I said yes,but HP doesn't allow a 1 word answer so I had to say more which is stupid if they allow such a Q&A-so that is what I said to get the comment accep

    The explanation for not doing this is that Q&A isn't supposed to be conversational like forums, but something that you can provide a more brief answer to - or ideally write a hub about.  They don't increase the word limit because they want to allegedly prevent debate, conversation, personal opinion here and make this a catalyst for hubs.  Of course, the rules here are kind of ambiguous and sometimes questions that are opinion questions are deleted and other times they slide through, making it kind of difficult to discern exactly what the real point of Q&A is.

      I see how that makes sense. But it's hard for us to contain our thirst for a good fruitful response or perfect rebuttal. But yeah I guess you're right.

    Nice question, Dwight.

    With your permission here, let me digress a little and say that few Poetry Comperes will give over 5 minutes in Open Mic Poetry. They know that while most poets are brilliant, one will get the occasional nut, or worse, someone offensive or boring to the audience. Can you imagine such a one going on for over 5 mins?

    I do not know, but it's highly possible that the Hub Pages Moderators have something similar in mind. You and I both know that while many comments and answers are sincere, some can be very rude and bordering on attack.

    I have seen some very sweet questions. But come back two days later, and the whole page by then has become so unwholesome, that it is difficult to appreciate. Some of our religious brothers, are the most guilty. One or two has disappeared, and perhaps this is a victory for Hub Pages and more tolerant readers.

    I would love a few more words, like you, but I see the potential also for more in-fighting as it were. Nice question, Bro.

      Mhh...Wow, you're onto something there manatita. I guess the "good" has to suffer for the "not so good". If everyone were given more "words"....more intolerable and longer conversations might take place. Good answer.

      Some off the nonbelievers are just as guilty.  Still good answer.

      Yes, you are right, Lois. The way of the Heart is not an easy Path for most. Thank you for your wise contribution.
