Bad taste to link to my Hub in an A-to-Q or A-to-Q-comment?
From other discussions I gather that it's generally considered bad taste to link in a comment on someone else's **HUB*** to one of my Hubs. But what about linking to my Hub in an A-to-Q or comment in response to a ***QUESTION***?
For example, consider the following scenario:
• The space for my A-to-Q or A-to-Q-comment is inadequate to convey/support my desired input to the discussion.
• But I HAVE adequately conveyed/supported my desired input in one of my Hubs.
Is it unacceptable to link to that Hub?
I wouldn't link to a Hub, but I might mention after I wrote a brief answer that I also wrote a Hub about the topic.
The best way to put this is, you need to go read the forums. We are not suppose to post hub links in comment boxes. The forums give lots of good answers to many hubs do and dont's.
Surprised to hear such unequivocal answers. Hub comments are UNsolicited. Hub answers are SOLICITED, and one would think that questioners would like answer links.
E.g. if you linked to a Hub that you wrote on this Q I'd consider that desirable.
Hub pages has rules, theirs not mine. That's way I directed you to the forums.
Will try again to find the specific forum(s) you allude to. Spent *considerable* time *unsuccessfully* trying to find one that addressed links in ***Q&A*** answers (vs. in Hub comments)--- *before* asking this Q. Only found answers for HUBS.

PROBLEM: Whenever I write a hub on a controversial subject, a number of people create new, fake hub accounts solely for the purpose of posting negative comments and feedback on my hubs and/or threatening me anonymously. These new hubbers have 0 (zero) hubs and no other activity, and they are never...

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...

I still think comments should be comments, not discussions, that is the purpose of a forum. Maybe it would be a good idea that every author has a forum automatically made in a widget on there profile page and the topics are always the title of the Hub. That way you can discuss it and always edit...

I know there is a rule about "self promotion in the forums."I just want to clarify what it means. Does it mean there is a blanket ban on all links in our own posts that link to any hub we've written or site or article we own?ORAre we allowed to post our own hub links if relevant to the...
