At 443 Hubs I Have to Say….


Your Only Opportuntiy is Work!!

I am at 443 hubs to date. I have met a lot of wonderful people on the hubpages and then some people who don’t publish anything but tear other’s work up. At after 443 hubs I have to say enough. I don’t mind someone with different opinion I just can’t stand anymore personal attacks. It is against the terms of service agreement we have all agreed to and I have been silent about this for so very long hoping that if I just was positive, kept working and stayed focused on my work that the rest would sort itself out.

But as of late the attacks have gotten worse. I have taken them and published them because I am certain they reflect more about the commenter then about me and they are very clear violations of terms or service agreements. I have trusted hubpages to handle this matter but have not directly reported them to hubpages.

There is also this thought that since I have published so much that I have money to share. Every single last word I have written myself. I have worked very hard and if I do ever earn a paycheck from hubpages it is mine and not for someone who publishes two hubs a month and then tears down other work.

Now it is the holidays and I am trying to be merry but I feel like I have to say to everyone who wants money from me through hubpages…go away. You are entirely inappropriate and for those who have taken to personally attacking me that is a violation of your terms of service contract with hubpages and your account can and should be shut down.

But I am no one’s bank or whipping post in hubpages. I have worked very hard, for six months now and I am sick of those people who can’t focus on their own work and take to tearing others down.

By the same token I am profoundly impressed with those who do get up everyday and follow the system and write. I appreciate comments even I am told I am completely wrong until the moment you attack me personally. I have written both pro democratic and pro republican hubs along with some anti-establishment hubs. And the anti-establishment people want more anti-establishment hubs. The democrats want more democratic hubs and finally the republicans want more republican hubs. Too bad!! I try to write a balance of all three opinions. Quite frankly I haven’t given my opinion on Hub pages because I have been writing to educate, inform and entertain.

So let me tell anyone who wants to ask another person on hub pages for money. Work! Write every single day of your life. Put yourself out there and put your work out there to be judged. For the most part people will like what you do. And those who don’t unless it is hub pages themselves too bad. People should be focused on helping each other in this community and working instead of being bitter little babies about their political views. So instead of tearing another person’s work down let me make a grand suggestion, if you are so right and great, out write them. And if you can’t then you know you are in the wrong.

I have a tremendous amount of respect for my followers and I am very grateful to everyone but work, respect others’ work and then you will have the money you so desperately crave from me. Because I will not give you a dime. And I hate to have to be so hard because I am a generous person by nature but it would seem that my generosity is being taken advantage of.

Happy Holidays!!!

I'm sorry for the rough treatment you appear to be getting in the political arena. I have noticed a proclivity (in that realm) towards that type of activity. For mental health reasons...I started to ignore it.

I was unaware that we could ask other Hubbers for money. This is intriguing. I won't ask you as you have made you position clear but that does give me a writing idea...?

Best of luck to you my friend. You have the right solution I think...concentrate on your own work while being supportive of others you respect.

Hi JT I'm commenting on a hub after long, but I've been reading almost all your work and voting.

I found it necessary to leave a reply here. I just read your forum post as well.

You've mentioned about not asking you for money, but do you think those people even bother to read your work. Their just lazy guys. There's so much of opportunity for everyone and all can fend for themselves isn't that the law of nature?

I know it's natural to get frustrated, but don't let those no good people spoil your mood. You're a great writer, just concentrate on writing.

443 hubs - wow!!!

Hi lobrobrandon,

And it is people like you who give me the strength to continue in the face of people who act soe teribbly. Thank you I will get back to writing my merry holiday hubs and try to forgte all of this. I just wears your soul down when you work so hard only to find others who do not insult your work and then want money from you.

No I am under no delusion that these are bad people. Otherwise they would focus on being productive on Hubpages.

Thank you my friend. Thanks for following me and i appreciate you so much.

Thank You Thomas!!!

I had some very interesting ideas for those who have asked for money but tried to take the high road writing and working on Hubpages every single day. So if you need any help with the story let me know.

All My Best and thanks!!

So sorry you ave having these troubles. That's why I avoid politics and religions hubs in general - I don't think I could stand the debates.

Millionaire Tips,

The debates are unpleasant when the involve personal attacks and I do steer away from religios and sex hubs because of of the same reason. But when being pursued for money and dates it is a little insulting. I would like to be appreciated for all my dedication and hard work. But women aren't treated that way in today's scciety.

You can say whatevery you want on my political hubs I like to give everyone a voice.

Thanks for commenting.

All My Best,

Well, politics and religion are touchy. I'm sorry you have been attacked, but you sound tough enough to handle it :-)

Hello Pcunix,

I dn't mind realy but the debtes should maintain civility. Once the other person has to restort to insults it is no longer a debate.

I am a rare and delicate person who works exceptionally hard and tries to be exceptionally fair to everyone of my commentors. So when I bleed I bleed red blood as well. It just has taken me this long to even mention it. I was just hoping to get through with my 468 hub before i emntioned it to anyone.

Thanks for the comments.

JT - so sorry that you have been through so much. I am having trouble with the concept of someone asking for money on hubpages. That is really strange to me.

I am sorry also that you have been personally attacked. That is not right either. You obviously have had more than your share to things lately. I am wishing you all the best.

Hi homesteadboung,

Thank you. I put up with it for many months but when it became too much I decided it was best for our community to know about it. No one should request money from each othert. We are all working to make extra income. It boarders on cyber crime and is not apporpraiet for our community. There ae too many good people working very hard to earn money the right way and shouldn't be hit up for their hrd earned pesos at the Holidays or any other time.

I think this happens more than people are willing to admit. I brought light to the subject so it would stop.

Yes, I think I am do for a break as well. And I am certain I will get one soon.

Thanks for reading aand commenting,

Hello Arusho,

I think this hub will end anymore attempts. They never got my money but simply just wasted my time. More importantly for our communtiy is that no one else is approached or even worse actually gives money to such people.

Thanks for reading and commenting!!

All My Best,
