    I have and I am so amused that someone is so so sad that they would have complained about my tatty little comments.
    I think everyone should say what they think then move on. That way grudges never develope and as I dish it I can take it also.

    How were you snipped by HP?

      Clue one she gave up her job to be a famous internet Entrepreneur.. and her Hubs suck, she started it and I finished it apparently.
      So no Google doesn't love me and Hub Pages well they still love me I bring the traffic, but the lady is not my biggest fan, in fact she wasn't ever my fan.
      Don't care tho she is way to unimportant to affect my chances of attending Royal Ascot.

      No I wouldn't imagine that you would bother, nor would the average normal person. I  have made the conclusions she is just a saddo.

    Did the comment hurt someone?  If someone was hurt by the comment than maybe it was taken down.  I do not think keeping grudges is good either, but what was said that resulted in the snip.

      mandybeauposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Truthful as opposed to hurtful, and she started it.
      I wouldn't even call it an attack.. More of a joke.

        It seems some get away with saying things that should be snipped, but other have been snipped from time to time.  It appears that from time to time there are double standards.  It happens everywhere though, but if it were just a joke seems unfair you got snipped, when others probably get away with saying similar things.

      Hey just saw your new picture when I was going through this comment. You are looking very beautiful. Keep this avatar and do not change it so long you don't get another picture of yourself where you look even more beautiful. Oh! I just forgot, I am talking out of context. Well coming to the topic, this has never happened to me!

        Mine looked like that too, but when I posted a reply to my "attacker",the offending verbage reappeared in the quote though not in the original posting.

    It may not have even been the person you attacked (or whatever, I missed it) who reported the posting, anyone can report an attack on a hubber.

    Cooooo - controversy. Time for a cuppa. A ciggie too. While I think up 10 cents worth.

    Or maybe t'will be less, I dunno.


    *smokin' slurpin' thinkin'*


    Nope - not been snipped. S'far as I'm aware.

    Personally, I don't mind being insulted - so long as they're proven, fair and will hold up in court big_smile

    I requested a moderator to snip the personal attack against me from mandybleau from this thread I requested that Mandy stop her habit of reposting someone else's comment in a quote but without adding anything to the comment - oddly, since I mentioned it, she has stopped doing that...

    The snipped bit was basically questioning my sanity, the authenticity of my author photo, and making school yard jokes about my surname.

    Its the first and only time I have ever requested a comment be snipped on the forums.

    1. SweetiePie profile image84
      SweetiePieposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Wow that is an attack and not a joke at all.  I too requested something be snipped once when someone referred to me personally and it was, but I thought that Mandybeau was just being penalized for a joke because she said her comment was jest.  I did not know what this was about until now.

        Sweetie pie two sides to every story............. She started sniping at me calling me stupid names not the other way round.

        1. SweetiePie profile image84
          SweetiePieposted 7 years ago in reply to this

          You are right there are two sides to every story, but poking fun at someone's name can be hurtful.  I am not sure Lissie was even particularly hurt by it, but I know I am a sensitive person, and if someone did poke fun at me I would definitely feel sad at the time.

          There was one time I did request my name be removed from a post because someone made a ridiculous comment about me an another hubber.  I think in the future I will stay out of these discussions because it really is none of my business.

          1. mandybeau profile image61
            mandybeauposted 7 years ago in reply to this

            I saw that and actually responded in your favour. Under my other Hub name. You are right Lissie would be as sensitive as I am, she just took it off because she couldn't think of any other way to get at me and thats the truth of it.

      mandybeauposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Well 1 I don't make School yard jokes about peoples names, this person, calls me Mandyblue, which is not my Username, she waxes lyrical about her perfect prose and yet cannot even get a username correct today I am being called mandybleau, she just keeps doing it ( So two sides to a story. The request was made in a way that wasn't particularly "asking nicely, I don't care what she is saying now to win Brownie points she has admitted to being a nasty little nark. Can't deny that one eh Lissie, and I have spelt your name correctly have I not. PS> Stay in Australia, snip that one if you like.

          Then they can ban her to as I said she has done exactly the same thing with my name, and also, started this thing, by not asking nicely.
          Thanx for your concern. Mandy

    Lissieposted 7 years ago

    I know SweetiePie - that was why I posted on this thread. It was a completely over-the-top personal attack in response to a perfectly reasonable request from someone with whom I'd barely interacted. I don't think Maddie snips often or lightly so I think I was justified.

    ouch!  I won't comment as rather don't want to get involved.

  11. Ron Montgomery profile image61
    Ron Montgomeryposted 7 years ago

    I'm not sure how the snipping works.  But apparently someone's  "attack" on me got snipped without my involvement. A hubber referred to me as, "not very smart" which I took no offense to; in fact I considered using that as my Hub ID. In other cases I have been accused of various psychological problems - again no offense taken, and had all-caps-bold obscenities thrown at me that were allowed.  The whole thing seems very random.

    HP allows us the forums to interact and enjoy eachothers company and shouldn't allow for disrespect towards others...but is difficult to determine I guess hmm I also avoid hurting others or getting too involved but will say my piece if I think people are going too far. hmm

      I don't like being reprimanded by someone, I do not see as superior in any way. Sorry I won't change my opinion, 2 more fans so most folk don't care what people are saying. All I care about are my fans, and for  the people that I am a fan of.

    I have only been here 5 weeks, but I have never been snipped that I know of... hmmm... I guess I do not say anything on hubs if I dont like the piece anyways. Hubs are generally ones opinion or another. just because I dont like it, does not mean that no one will... So I just shut up and say nothing...

      Sweetiepie as always you reply in a friendly manner , but you have argued a point with me before, and that is after all what a forum is about.... No Holds barred. I am one of your fans and read your Hubs I don't get into grudge territory.
      But it is interesting she has come out and said who she is.....She didn't need to do that.
      I'm personally over it.. as I sasid she doesn't affect me in any way...........

    The HubPages moderator should close this thread before mandybeau embarrasses herself even further.

    Hubpages is that controlling? they snip?
    Whoa
    I remember when I first joined being rudely insulted by a couple of guys ( who Ive pretty  much figured out think they are gods gift to women) but no-one snipped them and they continue to be offensive.
    Darkside didnt you write a very long letter as a post to a certain fellow hubber ?

    I think we are all big people and I have a problem with any site who would show favortism . I hope that is not the case.

      Darkside is Darkside, He doesn't look like he comes from the Darker side, looks alot like my brother, in fact so much so I thought it was him.
      No he is just a BIg Big Big Big fan obviously of the certain Hubber....... I can't even remember exactly what I did say, but this woman, Who is apparently a KIwi AAAAGGGH, complained, but initially she kept telling me off for a stupid little fault I had, and then she starts spelling my name MandyBlue and others, then she says no one could find fault with her perfect prose.
      Probably enlists a proof reader I haven't a clue. But it wasn't as bad as that ascist jerk on the Mexican Forum, so she can take a flying jump.
      Then I am told by another Hubber that I may get banned, and Uninvited writed (Who is Coo) tells me to stop whining, but whining has bought me 20 new fans, so hahha whose had the last laugh.
