I've got quite a discussion going on one of my hubs -- huzzah! -- but at this point the text of 145 comments easily eclipses the text of a couple-page article as far as search engines are concerned. There's getting to be more content on the page written by other people than by me.
The easy fix would be to display the last 10-15 comments with a "more" link to the older comments. But I can't find a comment capsule setting for something like that. Is there one?
You can edit the comment capsule to allow only so many comments to be shown. As far as I know there is nothing like a "more" button, though - the other comments would be unavailable.
That could be a valuable addition, though - maybe staff should consider such a thing.
My philosophy is there is no such thing as a "dumb question"! I continue to learn from many of the questions that are posted here, and this one is very interesting as well as the possibility that such an option could be added.

What do you do when people lash out at each other on your Hub? (in comments)Sometimes people have different opinions and argue in the comments section. They reply each other and it gets tense. Do you just watch the drama unfold, intervene, or delete the comments and wish you never published the Hub?

Why do I have to go back to every hub on which I've posted a comment to check the if the author has reacted or responded to my comment? Why can't there be a notification of some sort that the author has reacted to it. Then, I think a 'Reply' feature, like in the forums will be okay for hub comments...

Why do so many people have to constantly mention God in their comments on HubPages?No really... why? Even when the question or hub has NOTHING to do with religion, they have to bring god into it. What's the point? Just answer the question or respond to the hub like a normal human being and stop...
