I got a comment that is longer than the whole screen. Does an overly long comment detract from a hub? This one does contain pertinent opinion, but sheesh, way over done.
I see no reason not to. Or you could encourage them to sign up under your referral.
You could take a comment like that (with their permission) and weave it into a longer hub, too.
I do think excessively long comments can detract, especially if poorly formatted.
Because of the nature of some of my Hubs, I'll get "monster-long" comments. Because it's serious stuff, I'll try to address those "longies". Those are the Hubs that get scores of - like - 98/100; so I'm under the impression all that commenting helps a Hub. I just figure people don't have to read the comments if they don't want to - but I know what you mean, too.
It would feel like reading another hub, I recently had one comment like that, I just copied a sentence and Googled it, and my suspicion was right, it lead me to some article copied word for word, I quickly denied it. The writer had no opinion of his won just copy pasted stuff from elsewhere.
I know people copy sometimes, but I can tell from the comments on the type of Hub in question that the person read the Hub, make reference to remarks I've made, etc. I have no guarantee they're not phony, but since they don't give off the usual hints of phoniness, that's what I go with.
i dont think so. They actually make the hub more insightful .

I was quite stunned a week or more ago when someone made a statement on one of my hubs that she had commented twice and I had snubbed her by not replying. Her comment had been particularly flattering, and probably...

I'm a little puzzled on how to respond to some of the comments I've been getting from my hub about president Obama's support of gay marriage. If you scroll to the bottom, you'll seem some "she must be gay"...
