The Rudest Comment You Got?

  1. Sunny Robinson profile image84
    Sunny Robinsonposted 6 years ago

    I just encountered my first ever rude comment on one of my hubs.  And it 's a hub that's deeply personal to me.  However, the main portion of the comment was targeted to my other commenters/readers, which just as well riles me up.

    I wrote a reply that I hoped was sincere and nice, while letting him know that his comment was absolutely unnecessary.  Perhaps, in hindsight, it shouldn't have bothered me.  I figure it's inevitable, but for some reason, I still got surprised by it because hubpages is totally a nice community, even with off-site readers.

    So, my question to you all.  What is the rudest comment you've ever received on your own hubs? Or do you get them frequently?

      The rudest I have got is telliing or trying to talk to somebody and they reply 'whatever and its somebody you really care about

    I have been told, my writing is nothing but that of a feeble-minded person. I must be confused, a person with no self-esteem and an idiot.

      Oh yeaaah I'm looking at your profile right now.  You look so feeble-minded! I agree.

      Not. big_smile

      Love your bio.

    LOL I had several derogatory hubs written about me, two of them are still online big_smile

    As for your comment - I think you are overreacting, the guy seemed to actually try to protect your hub from unrelated links to some sexy profile, and just did generalize more than needed I think. smile

      Sunny Robinsonposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      I was thinking perhaps I did.  However, I didn't see unrelated links to some sexy profiles.  Most of the commenters on there, I actually know them.  So, that's what got me a little confused and feeling a bit defensive.  But then again, people's opinions are their own and I did make my writing public.

        sexylady it is, a couple of comments above smile she even logged out and manually entered the link to her "hot" list instead of a standard profile link. I bet this was what michael meant. smile

          Sunny Robinsonposted 6 years ago in reply to this

          Oh shoot.  I didn't even notice.  But her comment seemed so nice.

          I may have to apologize to Michael.  Sigh.  But did he have to refer to ALL of the commenters in broad general terms?

    I don't get them often, but when I do, I always try and be as gracious as possible.  When someone's obviously attacking you and you respond kindly, it really does make them look like an idiot.

      Yeah, but perhaps in this case I may have made myself look like an idiot.  Not sure yet.

    I was told that I have a s**tty writing style and that I just couldn't recognize talent when I saw it. It was a comment someone left on a review I wrote for a really horrible book...from their reply, I'd just about guess the commenter was the author.

    1. Sunny Robinson profile image84
      Sunny Robinsonposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      That's terrible.  If they didn't like your writing, they should have just moved on to reading something they DID like.  Jeez.

      1. wychic profile image79
        wychicposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        Hehehe...I just told them a little more detail might be a little more constructive so that I could be sure to do better in the future, and obviously a bad writing style is what sells since I make a pretty decent living off of it tongue.

        One thing I've learned in life...a smile, agreement in everything, and feigned confusion about where people are coming from when they're just being a dumba*s will get you just about anywhere. Very few people ever realize I'm intentionally insulting them if I look cute enough wink.

  8. mega1 profile image79
    mega1posted 6 years ago

    so far not one nasty or derogatory comment!  I think I need to get a little more controversial!  The closest I've come is the Stuff and Things hub which suggests reduction of personal belongings - and that we are attached to stuff because of fear - some people hate to think that might be so -but they were not nasty or mean to me about it.

    hmmmmmm. . . maybe getting some bad comments just means that you are really reaching people!  if you're really outspoken, people probably think you can take some criticism and treat you the way you treat others?  in the forums whenever I've been caustic I've gotten it right back, and wouldn't expect otherwise!  Sometimes when I'm critical I do get attacked, but I should know better than to criticize people who are sensitive and irritable and don't like me much anyhow!  smile

    'Pathetic loser', 'Worst thing I've ever read', etc. etc.  There's been so many. big_smile

    Personally, if they disliked it (me) that much, I'm just happy that I was able to make their day that little bit worse, which hopefully started a chain-reaction of bad events, that culminated in them coming home from work and finding their wife/husband/partner in bed with their next-door neighbor.

    Here's an excerpt from my rudest, (and also without doubt, funniest) comment - enjoy lol

    "Stated another way, your present opinion indicates your intellectual capacity is among the bottom 10% of human society. Your mind belongs to those "less favored races" whose existence is an unnecessary burden to the more advanced and intelligent humans on this planet (the "more favored races"); therefore, you are an evolutionary mistake and are no longer beneficial to the furtherance of the human species and ought to be terminated immediately due to your consuming resources more intelligent or "favored races" could be using."
