@ Psycheskinner, I really wish I was like you and admire you so much. Even I remember that someone slaughtered you here and you chose to just put it past you. Thumbs up
As for me, I remember them and am working past them as well, but some are hard to swallow. I have basically been trampled on a few times but I guess my personality may have provoked those negative responses.
It can get pretty nasty around here. But I also see people like you and relache and Marcy and Luis and many others taking the time to give people the best help and support you can, and ultimately that is why I keep coming back and spending time here out of all the forums the internet has to offer.
I got one pretty nasty comment. However, I was more annoyed because the person who wrote to couldn't write worth a damn. They made so many errors that it was hard to determine what they were trying to say!
In the forums...nothing major, because I refuse to be drawn into pointless forum pissing matches. If someone goes nuts on me, I usually have a good chuckle and walk away. Someone once did tell me I was "acting like a child" because I was "being snarky" (i.e. I wasn't agreeing with them or telling them exactly what they wanted to hear), but that's about as bad as it's ever gotten.
On Hubs, I've had some angry Guns N Roses fans tell me what an a**hole I am for not recognizing the genius of the "Chinese Democracy" album in the comments of my Hub about it. I also had a fan of a certain movie I reviewed negatively tell me that since I didn't like this particular film, I was obviously an idiot and I had no right to be reviewing any films whatsoever. (though he used much harsher language than "idiot" if you catch my drift). I found both instances utterly hilarious. I have never understood the whole keyboard-cowboy, "Someone is WRONG on the INTERNET and MUST BE STOPPED!" mindset that some people have.
I don't think I've had any that are really bad. Perhaps I am not provocative enough, and don't express strong opinions. About the worst I can think of, is a few people calling me an idiot in response to my hub about why Americans don't use metrics-- but that was only because the missed the irony or humor that was intended. I have since learned to use disclaimers.
I deserved it because I was picking fights in the forum and saying riled-up things without thinking, but one Hubber kept trying to condescend to me by calling me "Little girl" which was more than mildly irritating to say the least.
I of course was "completely mature" about it and reciprocated with "old man" or something idiotic of that nature.
Well, there are trolls who keep posting comments which are deleted; however, it does NOT deter them in the least. They feel that it is THEIR right to incessantly return to ONE'S hub to post their comments. They even become incensed when their comments aren't posted. There is ONE who returned 5 times, asking why wasn't THE COMMENT posted? Please get a LIFE!
I have experienced my first round of nasty comments tonight. Someone from outside of Hubpages created an account to just leave nasty comments on a few of my hubs. They were making comments about how I don't...
Approximatey 3 months ago when I joined Hub Pages, this place was friendly, inviting, neutral, and supportive. It was funny with the likes of fiery, eaglekiwi,and darkside, sometimes with blondepoet-though she is just...
What are the potentially cons of not using a comment box?I'm tired of answering the same questions over and over again. I'm tired of getting rude comments. I'm tired of dealing with it basically. I want to help people,...
