Do we want an honest comment/ criticism on our hubs or are we just looking for praise?
I don't particularly want critisism in the comments section of the hub as I see this more for 'interaction' relating to the topic of the hub. However, if I seek advice on the forums I want honest objective critisism - also if someone really has critisism then I'd love them to 'contact me' and provide honest feedback that way.
First the word criticism is one that I choose not to use. I do not want to find fault with someone else's opinion or style, etc. Of course, someone finding fault with my opinion or style is not welcomed either. Now if you want to give me honest feedback that is very different and I welcome that. Don't be mean and hateful. If your opinion differ from my opinion that is wonderful.....we are all different in our views, why we have those views and or why we look at the world throught different lens. If you are truly trying to be helpful but the comment has the potential for being embrassing contact me through my email and I will decided if it is something that need to be shared.
No, I am not just looking for praise, but I do like comments. I try never to read someone else work without leaving a comment. I think we each deserve that much respect.
A community like hubpages is here, I believe, to help us get our work out "there" and to be a supportive environment to allow us to grow and develop as writers.
This, by the way, is a great question.
Imvall for constructive criticism. If someone wants to be a troll or just downright tear your article apart without offering any solution to make it better then I don't think that's productive. All of us do enjoy praise on a job well done though
It's easy to praise. It's difficult to 'properly' criticize. I am always looking for the 'difficult' one.
I look for both. I love when people praise my work. It is like a little bit of motivation to keep going. But I honestly know that my writing could be better and having someone offer constructive criticism (not just tearing the writing apart) is also welcomed. Who knows, something great could come out of it.
I prefer praise, but that's only because I'm human. I generally don't criticize an essay unless it makes gross errors of fact or unless I feel the message is harmful political propaganda. In either case, I state my own opinion and explain my position in the comments section.
I would like constructive criticism that will help with any of my opinions in hubs and writing skills ... who doesn't like praise but i really appreciate constructive criticism, and consider that person to be a true well wisher.
i want an honest answer with constructive criticism. time is precious and i would like to find out if reading my stuff turned out to be a waste of that particular commodity. but with ever negative, there should be some kind of positive, yes?

I never get any comments on my hubs so I have no idea what people think of their content. My latest is "Run for your life." But I would love to hear criticism on any of them. Thank you!!
