If you happen to read a hub that is meant to be educational...


...but all of the facts in it are wrong, what do you do? Do you tell the person their facts are wrong? Or do you just leave it? It drives me insane to find a hub by someone who has thousands of followers but all of the information in the hub is completely inaccurate. I just never know what I should do. I don't want to be rude, but people shouldn't be disseminating erroneous information either.

    Thanks Paula! I've left comments before, but they usually always get deleted or ignored. One hubber, I tried to tell them in their title and hub the condition they were reporting on was actually misspelled!! So I flagged it.

    You're absolutely right DrMark. Comments don't work and neither do emails. But it's scary to just leave the erroneous info out there. Thank you for the congrats. I take it your traffic has improved then? Awesome! Ill be looking for your 100,000 soon!

    I agree, but I think either way most people feel attacked and so choose to ignore it. I've corrected several hubbers on misinformation provided on the eye, and even though I that is my background and expertise, my corrections are ignored.

    That's a great way to look at it Scott. I, too, would want someone to correct me if an error was found in my hub. I want my work to be as accurate as possible. Paul E once corrected me for a duplicate text error and I greatly appreciated it!

    Indeed Lizzy. I think that's the route I'm going to take. Email them with the right information and hope they don't take offense!

    I would think so too Michelle, but I've gotten emails from ticked off hubbers that I've tried to "help." But I totally agree with you!

    Wow, the one I read today wasn't as dangerous as misinformation on Bipolar disorder. But I know what you mean. Many people write about the eye, and the majority of them are wrong and that can be really dangerous too! Drives me nuts!

    I agree Andre, there needs to be a distinction there. And in this case, it was absolutely a fact reported erroneously. In fact, the link to the "evidence" of their fact actually proved the hubber wrong.
