My mouse button on my laptop is kind of broken, so when I went to submit a comment on a hub, I thought it didn't go through because of my computer, but it turned out it was kind of slow to load on HubPages' side. Thus, I ended up submitting a quad-billion of the same comment. (Fortunately it was on one of my own hubs.)
It would be a cool prevention measure for HubPages to, instead of submitting multiple comments, to say something like, "You already said that" or something. This would be handy as I've often submitted duplicate comments to users' hubs in the past by accident.
Also, something I noticed when I was deleting my duplicate comments, sometimes it would say "Your comment has been removed" and sometimes it would say "Comment has been deleted by the user." I can see how this would occur given that I'm deleting comments on my own hub, but just giving you a heads up in case there's a problem with my "role" on my own hub. (Am I a reader of my own hub? Yeah, kinda. Am I the mod of my hub? Yeah, definitely!)
I also refreshed the hub and the deleted comment message didn't go away.
Furthermore, I can't seem to delete an almost-but-not-quite-duplicate comment I made on someone else's Hub when my internet went kablooey one day. Or perhaps I'm missing something. Anyway, it's a bit embarrassing that they're both still there.
I find the reaction time to save the comments on HP quite slow, so we often click more than once and end up with multiple comments. A warning about it would be in good order.

This has probably been addressed elsewhere but I haven't found the answer yet. Is it ok to post a link to your own hub in the comments section to someone else's hub on the same or similar subject? I just found such a post in a comment on one of my hubs and don't know whether its a good...

Does it bother you that people visit your hubs and don't leave comments?What's more important to you, getting tons of traffic with no comments or getting less traffic with comments?For me, I love to get comments because it lets me know if I have touched someone or given someone a new way of doing...

Maybe its just me but I realize the work people put into their writing so I comment. Even if its just a thanks for sharing. How about you?

Can I make a hub based in large part on a comment of my own that I left on another hub, without running afoul of the 'duplicate content' trip-wire?

When you receive a comment on one of your hubs, do you always post back with a comment? Or, just when there is something to post back about. For example if someone just comments that it is a nice hub, do I need to comment back to them? Thanks!

Do you make a comment on every Hub you vote "up" after reading?I always do make a comment, even a short one, and just wondered if a lot of people read and vote without comment. Do you ever read and not vote? I have done that occasionally.
