Do the same rules apply to answering comments that apply to answering/editing Q&A questions? I couldn't find anything in the Learning Center. If a comment/question on an article has grammatical errors, misspellings, and/or typos, will it be published if I answer it? We can't edit comments like we can in Q&A. Should we even bother answering questions posed in the comment section if it won't get published?
If the question even halfway makes sense, correct it, answer it and you have a good chance that the question will retain it's own url. If keywords in that question are searched for enough, more impressions will follow.
Comments are moderated with much more leniency than Q&A. We follow the same guidelines as most community-centered websites. Of course, we remove any that are spammy, inappropriate, non-English or incoherent.
Hi Jan in my experience comments always have typos, but they are always approved if I answer them. (I usually just delete the nonsense comment/questions and the ones that have a link to another site/spam)
I delete comments that are obscene or spammy. I reply to comments that are relevant even if there are typos. They still communicate anyways. Then again, I am not a pedantic English teacher.
Jan, I know what you mean. Like you, I just come to the forum and ask.

I am still unsure of the etiquette/protocol regarding whether or not to respond to comments made on articles that I have written. On the one hand it seems rude not to acknowledge comments but, on the other hand, if there is nothing to write other than a thank you note it seems pointless. I think it...

Why do hubbers turn off commenting for an article?Especially if it is a "Stir the pot" type question. What is the point of taking time to write articles, sometimes very well written articles, then turning off the comments? We all know the Q and A doesn't provide ample room for any real...

Do you think it is important to add follow-up comments when people answer your questions?When I answer a question or leave a comment on someone's hub, I appreciate some awknowledgement. I feel surprised (and a bit "cheated" when there is no response) Am I setting my expectations too...
