A lot of our hubs end up turning into a discussion and one comment leads to another and sometimes you leave a comment that is directed to somebody. How is that person supposed to know that you're talking to them? I propose that hubpages makes it possible for people leaving comments to have an option to receive further notifications (or to "follow the conversation") of comments left on a given hub. That way we can keep the conversations going and keep people coming back to our hubs. What do you think?
Every time someone leaves a comment on my hub, I receive an email. The setting is in your profile.
I'm not sure if I'm following you about following the conversation. Comments in between a commenter and your response, I usually signify "@hubbername" to identify who I am talking to.
It seems to be what most people presently do.
Nah Gags, if I understood Dutch correctly, she means comments that you left on others' hubs. Like you can request to be emailed any time someone posts a comment on a blog post you commented on - on some blogs.
Dutch, not sure I want that much clutter in my inbox though. But then if I can turn this off I don't really care.
BTW you can always go to My account and click on "Comments you made" under Interaction

If you reach a high level as a commenter on other's hubs, what right does HP Editors have to downgrade your status based on your output? This donkey and carrot encouragement only annoys contributors who feel...
