How do you feel when some of your comments on various hubs are never responded to by the author?


Once in a while I'll write a thoughtful comment, which I've put some real research into, and which may (or may not) disagree somewhat with the author. But I am also quick to point out things about the article with which I agree. Other times, I'm just posting a compliment - period. But for whatever reason, I never hear a word back. I find it strange. Is this just a case of poor social skills? I cannot imagine ignoring someone unless they are abusive. That's my take. How about you? (Having said that, I think that perhaps some comments may get lost in cyberspace.)

    What a beautiful answer, Billie Kelpin. If my comment is posted, then others have the opportunity to check out my research. And you're right... Life Happens. Speaking of which, I am sorry about your father-in-law. Thank goodness for his loving family

    Lol. As I mentioned to dashingscorpio, I only have 15 hubs. It's easy to keep up with so few. I the end, everyone can choose whether they want to respond or not, and it's not necessarily a thing of being actively impolite.

    Another awesome answer, Ketage. That's the way I must look at comments. If I get one, I'll be pleasantly surprised. What a good idea!

    Now it's coming together for me. Frankly, I only have a few hubs and some people have hundreds. It would be hard to keep up with that many comments. But, I am glad that you welcome a difference of opinion!

    Hi duffsmom. Mostly, I just try to give some extra data that people may not be aware of, so that they can research further. Thus, I am trying to add something to the hub. Forums get somewhat ridiculous, so I like commenting on articles.

    Good point, JThompson42. Sometimes we are not notified by HP and other times people are busy.

    DDE, I hear you. If someone never responds, consistently, I will stop following them. Frankly, this is a community & we have to act like it. But, I am more at peace in my mind since reading these comments. I appreciate your honesty - very much!

    Ghost32. Once again, another thoughtful perspective. I guess my thing is that I love the community - the talking back & forth. It's fun. But, I admit that when I first began writing here I had almost no time to spend on Hubpages.
