Now I read somewhere that our score goes down if we respond to people that comment on our hubs. Is this true? I realize lots of crazy stuff is happening, but I am writing at the same level, and see all my hubs dropping, and my main score. I do know that main score doesn't matter much, and that in this period of transition, we are all trying to wait and see. So, just the first question, does it hurt to answer fellow hubbers on our hubs? It seems rude not to acknowledge them if they are nice or interested enough to stop and read our work. Thanks.
I was told you should answer every one and thank them for their comments no matter how nice or ugly they are.Don't forget to read how to get notice on hubpages by J.Mathews.If you Love to write,keep writing don't worry about scores,or take a step back and see what you could add to bring the traffic back to your hubs.Good Luck in everything.
@ Jean, Absolutely not.. You can answer the comments.. the score are related to too many different things one among them is the traffic to your hubs.. and community interaction.. but I would say don't worry about scores just do what you are doing, write using great keywords, optimize your hubs for search engines and backlinking them.. the traffic and earnings will come.. Score are not really indicative of anything.
Edit.. But fan mails are different from comments you cannot answer fan mail.. you can at the most reciprocate them by sending another fan mail.
I hope you are not confusing fan mail with comments.
Sorry for the confusion. I meant answering comments, not Fan Mail, and used the two interchanably. I was talking about the comments at the end of our hubs, so thanks for answering my question.
Forget about the author scores and/or the hub scores. Don't pay attention, it is simple is this. You cannot control it, sometimes they act ridiculously; you can't control them at all. Just write, be active, help others, reply to comments, do some insightful comments, do your role; play your part. Be happy and satisfied. At some point, the hub scores (if written well) and the author score (if you are good-looking) will definitely increase
It is just professional courtesy to answer any fan mail. If someone takes the time to write you something good or bad, they thought enough of what you wrote. Acknowledgement is something we all like. or am I wrong? Best wishes!

For several months now (almost since I joined hubpages) I have been getting harassing, threatening and ridiculous comments from the same person. I originally encountered her in a forum, and she has not left me alone since. She repeatedly leaves me harassing fan mail, none of which has...

Paul.. love being able to delete comments, but can we also have the option to delete fans? There are some who are really intent on promoting themselves that way, and will try again once they've seen their fanmail has been denied.

On your profile the first four people who leave you fanmail remain permanently fixed there. Shouldn't it be more like commenting on myspace where the last people to leave a comment appear at the top? I've nothing against the first four people who left me fanmail; it was very nice of them but it...

I tried to leave fanmail both yesterday and today but could not. Instead, I get the message, "You don't have fanmail." Anyone else having this issue?
