just ignore them, just like Ms. helen said, there are more things which everyone of us need to deal with than the annoying and nonsense circular arguments at times, i dont know why people also want to annoy others and use tactics like that
It's not real life here in the forums, so anything I read that I think is a load of bull I just ignore as it has no place in my thoughts. There are so many Drama Queens in the forums that I think the name should be changed and we should have an actual Drama Queen section. Maybe I should have been born a man but I just don't get how some people get so upset. I love joining in, but also know when to back off as I have much more important issues going on in real life to worry about trivial things on here.
You had me up to "maybe I should have been born a man" Have you read some of the forums written by men that are just as whiny and dramatic as the women? I think people get caught up in their emotions and instead of just having a discussion are actually trying to "persuade" others to think like they do. It's really trivial and ego-maniacal. I just remove my emotions from it all and say "Whatever".
Guilty! I argue on the Political forum for the release and for some important topic I might be able to change someones mind on. But I admit, I love to mix it up for the drama. I Hope I dont get banned.I came close a few time.
Hahhaahah tk to you it is an Artform Hows ya Thank goodness you haven't left........Yawwnnnnnnn it gets boring, maybe I am a s.... Stirrer but all those people that never say a bad word, or argue, they must have festering great stomach ulcers.
Yeah they all surface and tell me off. they love to vent..... I have saved a certain gent, alot of tummy ulcers, he even re opened one of my threads to tell me off, and I just thought DORK!!!!!!!! But then I haven't named him, and I might even find it in my heart to fan him, if he ever writes anything worth reading. Now that doesn't consitute a personal attack does it......... Lol:) Working long hours so need to have fun.
I don't ever feel like telling people off, but I'd really like to call out a few of the drama king & queens, who I think just want a boat load of attention, the whole "I'm leaving hubpages drama" and the "please don't go" attention they get is, I imagine, a bit of an ego boost for them.
Sometimes I just want to say - take a look outside, you are living in the real world, get over it, get on with it & do what you have to do. Quit asking a group of people on the internet if you missed me or will you miss me when I'm gone - I'm sure there is a song already written with these words
The exception to this is people who really DO need our support & congrats in their life events - new babies, new loves, marriage, reaching a hub milestone, etc..and the support one needs in a time of sickness, divorce, etc.
Yep. change of name and toned it down for a while. He is now in a grey shirt, (no face showing, the freemasons are still after him apparently!) In the last couple of days he has become even more visible by starting the whole zionist, humanist, freemason rant again! Nothing funny about his view on women, respect for fine hubbers like BP and Colebabie. He is still a homophobic zealot apparently.
well, it's all about keeping your cool isn't it? I just avoid all confrontation...(such a waste of energy)...but sometimes one just gets frustrated with people insulting each other here....so the answer: avoid the thread...and focus elsewhere!
This is my first time joining a Hub or anytype of blog. I dont even do facebook, myspace, twitter. I have alot of free time I did'nt have before retirement. I'm enjoying this alot. But can anyone tell me; are all blogs monitored this way?
There are some people that complain if you personally insult them, but it is Cyber world, and there really shouldn't be any restrictions. Save lewd talk or smutty stuff, an insult is hardly a biggy??????? So watch who you insult or don't insult anyone, but if you feel the need to insult someone, feel free to insult me I have been insulted by experts, There has never been an expert insult me on Hubpages. Just an amateur.
My father was in the Military, we were not allowed to be anything other than tough as ... Plus this Country, only the tough survive eh PD and Eagle. Plus I have a fair amount of Irish blood as well as the frog and Hun lol:)
That so sweet of you. Bless your heart! My problem is I'm into politics. I take it very seriously because it has a direct affect on my life. On the political forum right now there is a topic concerning the rights of gay people. I'm a gay man. I cant let some of the outrageous comments I hear go unchallenged. Some things you have to take seriously. I cant say "Whatever if someone is saying I dont have or deserve the same rights as everybody else. Sorry about the drama. Sometimes it's necessary.
The opposite, I believe I may have publicly humiliated the other person, but after 9 months of reading this person telling porky pies it had to be done. I was initially as tactful as I could be, then he went for my jugular, and I gave it back to him. I was not banned because of the way I did it. It was quite intense for awhile but I believe other forum regulars were pleased it was happening too. Nonetheless I don't use the forums for a place to bash other people. But sometimes...........things get heated.
I agree I am actually a very cool calm and collected individual, I just love a laugh, happy to laugh at others laughing at me, cool to tell me where to go and I would never never ever push the stupid report Button.
I don't take much of anything on here seriously (unless it's something that ought to be taken seriously, like HubPages announcements, of course). I like debate or silliness - doesn't matter. I admit to getting a giant kick out of the occasional soap opera on here.
I have trouble saying nothing when someone writes one of those "anti-women" posts. I'm not one to "tell off" with name-calling, though.
mandybeau1, some of your most memorable threads were in the "how do we if a Hubber is dead" (or insane or whatever) "series". Those kicked around for ages.
I am really upset over the whole discussion about the Apprenticeship program. Now disgruntled hubbers want to have the badge removed form our profiles.When I became an "elite", when it was known as that, I was...
I am reviled yet my forums create all kinds of participation. I like and I am not going anywhere!There are some who indicated a boycott to not speak ever on what I write. They are writers heretics. I bless them and...
There's a forum up right now about Christians who play the eternal damnation card. It bothers me, as a Christian, that anyone would say this to another human being. I am not arguing if there is a hell or not for...
I have a suggestion Having been active on hubpages for about 6 months now, I have seen the same things come up time and time again:What should I flag as a bad hub?Why are my adsense ads showing inappropriate...
Do other Hubbers, besides me, ever wonder about the "rest of the story" when someone stomps off and leaves HubPages - such as someone who opens dozens of forums but then can't deal with honesty?Or perhaps...
Well...that's not really true...some drama in our life gives us purpose...keeps us entertained...etc. This posting is inspired by the drama...that goes on here. I don't want to make too big a deal out of it...apologies...
