I just have to wonder why people Post some of the Forums, knowing that they will be ramifications. I haven't been on for awhile, as I felt that there was a nasty type of back lash on many. So today I went through and saw that a fair few were actually closed to Comment/Reply. So looked to see why? The worst was one about a Lady saying Goodbye. It was obvious that this was out of hand fairly early in the piece. I have also noticed that there are always mainplayers, or should I say Main stirrers. What do they get out of this type of thing?
I really don't take them seriously either, I haven't been here for awhile, and I think when people start talking about Lawyers, slander etc.etc. It is just stupid. It can't happen anyway. I guess i am just trying to say. No use making stupid threats, that no Lawyer would touch, I also would like to see the Forums as sensible things that didn't need to be closed to reply. Its just my opinion, but I think I am allowed one.
Not sure what compels some people to come to the Forums with their guns drawn. It's like they are itching for a fight. Others jump into the mix to either egg the main players on or try to calm things down. Like the cyber version of a playground or bar fight! But not all Forum threads are like this. Some are actually entertaining!
I was on ocver the weekend and someone had mentioned all the closed to Reply ones. I looked @ that one, I just thought it was stupid, They were all Bonkers, one was even two people, it was a jealousy thing. I thought it was entertaining. So shannedoah lighten up. I would hate them with no scraps. Bye the way Squidward Sponge came on and made it more stupid. at one stage he was on nearly every post.
It's cool, Shannondoah. I saw that thread... The woman that was saying goodbye is manic depressive. I think the internet, really, is like life...you will have all kinds and all sorts of situations.
It used to be, a few months back, that the general interest forums were places of a little more serious discussions (not boring...just people with something to say), and the Hubber's Hangout, etc., was more 'entertaining.'
I think we've definitely seen a great deal of weird stuff and silly situations...spammers and trolls...in the last 3 months or so here across the board, though.
I agree, in a way with her, it has definitely changed, it was only funny on the week end because it was so stupid. But seriously when people start ann ouncing their love for each other. I just think that is for the Date lines and Chatrooms, it certainly isn't my type of entertainment. Panda man was telling me all about the trolls Spammers and Flamers, and I learnt alot from him.
Nelle -- Glad I made you laugh! I also appreciate the calming comments you tried to inject last night. That thread last night was seriously messed up. BECAUSE it involved not one, but two hubbers I like very much.
Perhaps we can start and try hard to sustain a more upbeat, less intensely personal thread today. Maybe???
I dont know why but I always get hungry when I want to write ,so I flick to the forums to warm up so to speak, now I just want a big ole bun with icing on top.. N custard oozing out all over the wheres... jenny craig shuddup ya face
You've become Elmer Fudd? EK, You know what cracks me up, and mind you I've only been here 4 months.. but it's the newbies with all the "attitude".. gee.. at least wait 3 months to get some "tude".. get to know the players.
Uhuh , I hear that CV, thing is and this is just my humble opinion that some people have come from active other sites ,so technically savy they just carry on ,like their in another room of the house , which in a way they are.
Funnily enough though ,I never even ventured into a forum for maybe a month ,ya'know its like starting a new school but maybe its just us (old school) and my first visit to HP Forum , had me shakin in my boots
Everywhere I look people are upset and threatening to leave over the forums and I don't get it. Who cares if someone disagrees with your point of view? You dont have to wake up next to them in the morning so why does it...
Do you think cyber bullying is taking place on hubpages? I have found some regulars on hubpages forming groups and attacking people through their messages.People who are having poor English or belong to poor...
I can't help but notice that after a few bannings of prolific forum participants, the forum participation has dropped dramatically.Gone are the days when I had around 3 pages of Hubbers Hangout topics to peruse,...
In lue of King Larry being indefinitely banned from forums, he's asked me as a personal favor to post this on here to see if there needs to be any changes made. As we wouldn't want another LeBron James hub...
