Hate Speech on HubPages

  1. rotl profile image60
    rotlposted 6 years ago

    I have been coming across a lot of hate speech on HubPages, both in Hubs and in the forums. Stuff that I would not even dare repeat.

    While it is good to know who the bigots are on HubPages, we need to flag them immediately. Yes, it is not going to change their views, but that's not the point. The point is to:

    a) Send a message that hate speech is not an acceptable part of any civilized discourse, no matter what the venue; and

    b) To keep HubPages a positive, supportive community where all types of people are welcome and not subjected to hate and intimidation.

      Roti, I agree the hate speech needs to end.  It is directed towards a particular group that I have noticed over the years.

      It really discourages me that it is allowed here and I hope that people just stop.

        I feel the same way.

        Imagine how discouraging it is for someone belonging to the group being targeted. It needs to stop.

      Hate speech on HubPages? Yes, there happens to be some, but as with all other avenues of writing, you are going to have people who feel they are justified in writing their feelings.

      However, I agree that certain things should be flagged, but only when viewed from an objective point of view, which is the only time when bias is not involved from oneself.

      The message "hate" is subjective to one's dislikes or disapproval.

      Flagging things according to HubPages TOS is the only option a member has here and it is not open to your individual view.

      Flagging things, just because you disagree isn't an option. The "Hate" message must be clear, before HubPages finds it in violations of it's Terms of Service.

        Yes, and as I said, I trust people know the difference. Calling Obama a bad president is not the same as calling him a bad president because he is black... 'nuff said.

      Rotl:
      I agree that you should define "hate speech" for us.
      There is no reason one can't offer, in writing or verbally, what one feels about any subject.
      Sensitivity levels are as varied as there are people.
      You get pissed off (it seems to me) if I use the word "damn."
      There are many words which you might consider to be "expletive," but are used by speakers of English everyday to add "impetus" to a comment.
      I have my idea of a defintion of "hate speech" that may differ greatly from yours.
      Pls be specific. TY

      What you see as hate speech, is really, freedom of speech.

      When we create a hub/thread, it tells us what we can and can't post.
      You will only waste the hub staff's time by flagging hubs/threads.

      And remember, it's your opinion

        Not all speech is free from consequences, and that includes hate speech. And hate speech is not something you can post as per HubPages; that's why we have a category to flag.

                So you are talking about other threads then - that may be, so I take back my LOL.  I thought you were talking about the words in this thread. 

                I guess the point in this thread is to discuss what hate speech is and isn't, and how to deal with it on Hubpages. 

                If you have specific examples that you are thinking of maybe you could post them here and we could discuss as a group.

    Flag them if they are in violation of the TOS.  HP is not "the press" and as such are not required to provide a forum for free speech. They will censor anyone who does not comply with the TOS that every hubber agrees to when they open their accounts.

      I agree. The Original Post is too vague to be a basis for serious discussion. Besides, accusing opponents of "hate speech" is an old political trick.

        I don't have any "opponents," or cause or agenda. I am making a general point about hateful comments directed at any person, group, religion, nationality etc. Rather than getting into a discussion about my definition of hate speech, I trust that most people know hateful commentary when they see it.

        1. Shadesbreath profile image89
          Shadesbreathposted 6 years ago in reply to this

          That can depend on sensitivity levels.  Which is why I said, IF they are in violation of the TOS, report it.

          As others have asked, you could direct us to the specific comments and perhaps we could be more helpful.

            rotlposted 6 years ago in reply to this

            I don't want to single out any person(s) or comment(s). As an example, there have been several threads in the past few days alone that have contained highly offensive comments directed at Islam and Muslims, comments that would be considered hate speech by any reasonable measure. There are Hubs and comments about the President and his family that are vile. I'll stop there.

            Maybe these things don't offend some people... like I said, I'll let people use their judgment, but definitely something to be aware of.

        I've noticed these, and was really disturbed. I've also noticed some nasty stuff about gays and lesbians. I do flag stuff, but never flagged these, just rated them down if they were hubs. Didn't know flagging was an option for this stuff.

        I think I need to revisit the Terms of Service...though I think I read it when signing up, I really can't say what they are anymore after my brain has been crammed full of adsense, keywords, page views, affiliate settings etc. etc. the last few months.

            If you have reported what you consider hate speech, has it been removed by moderators? I think you could tell us this without compromising anyone's privacy. It would give us an idea about (i) whether it was indeed hate speech; (ii) whether or not HubPages is serious about fighting it.

              I haven't gone back and checked everything I've flagged so I'm not sure if it's removed or not. One thread I found particularly offensive (and flagged yesterday), the offending comments have not yet been removed, but the thread was locked (no more replies). So I'm not sure what that means from HubPages' point of view. Obviously they listened, but instead of deleting the specific comments, they shut down the thread.

                OK, if you could come back and tell us how it goes with the other things you have flagged, that would enrich this discussion quite a bit. Yes, moderators often close a thread. They may delete a single post, but if there are several controversial posts, they often close the thread instead. Then it will soon be forgotten as it drops towards the bottom of the index.

                    Definitely worthwhile flagging. The moderators may have agreed there was hate speech, which would probably cause the offender to be banned; or the thread was deemed to be headed in that direction.

To my surprise , the thread was shut down, and I was starting to recieve some beauttiful, refreshing, loving and peaceful replies. I restarted a brand new thread with this same topic.

After all, the goal of the offender was to stop the thread from going forth. If a person is breaking the terms of violations rules of hubpages, they should be punished for misbehaving, and they can not blame no one but themselves. Thank you rotl. big_smile

        No, I disagree.

        People in their ideals are generally not very reasonable. Even if their point is reasonable, their application of it may be misplaced.

        Why do you think the KKK is still allowed to have rallies, and that repulsive pedophile group is still allowed to exist?

        Hate speech is based on personal opinions. If my personal opinion is that you are going to hell for being a gay rejector of goodness, then that's not hatespeech, per se, it's me telling you in all love and good intention that you must repent!

        But to my personal sensibilities -which in fact are neither gay or christian- it's hatespeech.

        If I say all religious people are stupid and ruining the world, and back it up with what is elsewise a well-reasoned argument, it's not hatespeech, it's me trying to elucidate the masses and save the species! LOL

        But to a religious person it's hatespeech.

        The legal definition is to incite violence.

        As long as it doesn't incite violence, it isn't legally hate speech, and HubPages would be getting themselves in for a mutinous quagmire if they tried to go beyond that.

        It's called hatespeech, but in fact it's okay to incite hate. Politicians and their pundits do it all the time. It's just not okay to incite violence, legally speaking.

        That too isn't always easy to define. I can say should be eliminated without actually meaning should be killed.

        It's all a slippery slope.

    I just wrote one of my long but hasty and effectively rambly posts in response to this thread, hit the button and was informed that HubPages was momentarily down for maintenance.

    All is lost, you are spared, praised be the gods.

    My conclusion was that A) hate speech is tough to fairly define and apply, and B) it is always a product of extremes.

    I will add that C) I have been guilty of it, and D) now think it's counter-productive.

    Oh yeah and E) you're all nuts anyway, and I say that in love.

    It seems to be very popular on these forums to label a person as belonging to a certain group.  Then the attacks on the group begins, and the offender thinks it is not a personal attack because they are attacking the entire group.

    Including the hubber, which in my opinion equates to a personal attack.

    If I attack myself, is that still considered hate speech?  Should I flag myself?  Better yet, I could flog myself as well - but that would also be hateful.. Man, I'm so cornfused.. I guess that's still better than being cornflaked though, right?  Carp, I'm an idiot.  -wait, more hate speech!  I Better stop while I'm behind!

    A'ight, seriously.. People all getting up in other people's Kool-Aid is a fact of life, especially online.  Flag it if it really, really needs to be flagged, but most of the time, it's simply better off to ignore the idiots. We've all said things that we shouldn't from time to time..

    I reported the thread "why are almost all terrorists muslim". 

    The thread started out with a false premise (almost all terrorists are muslim) and then went on to explain the premise with a distorted description of Islam, blaming all the political violence in the world on the words of the Koran, even implying that Islam is a devilish religion.

    That is stupid, and hate speech. 

    If you're having trouble seeing this, imagine instead a thread entitled:  "why are most violent criminals black?" which then went on to explain that most violent criminals are black because of something in African American culture or genetics.  That would be pure racism.

    I consider that hate speech. 


    "As Christians we must ask ourselves, why would atheist and agnostics post a thread in a Christian forum. There are a couple of obvious reasons. Number one is that they are serving satan and they are trying to disrupt the harmony among the Christians here by distracting them from their real purpose, which is serving God and fullfiling the great commission. Number two is that they are in it for the money and they know every lost soul will rally behind them. Either way they are starting threads and we are supporting them. "get behind me satan""

    I flagged it as hate speech yesterday but the thread is still open.

      William R. Wilsonposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      I don't feel as annoyed by this thread Sandra, for a couple of reasons. 

      For one, it's just so ludicrous.  It is demonizing an entire group of people, yes, but its entire premise is ridiculous.

      For another, atheists and agnostics are not (in my opinion) in any real danger from Christian wingnuts. There might be a random danger from another Scott Roeder lone nut here or there, but there is no institutionalized danger or oppression to atheists and agnostics. 

      The thread you point to might qualify as hate speech, but it's much less of a problem (to me) than a Christian attacking all Muslims (since Muslims and Christians are actively killing each other throughout the middle east).

        Good points William, but it is certainly objectionable on many levels. It is trying to incite... and that is disturbing enough.

        We won't all be offended the same way by things, but as long as it truly hurts or offends someone, then it should be addressed. I think we are all better for it in the end.

        William, you're doing a great job around here.
        Another reason "non believers" post in religious forums is that some of them have been believers at a moment in their lives.
        I've posted often to religious forums some time ago, but I tired off.
        I realized most of the content of religious forums could come out of a 10 year old child's mind.
        So I've never been tempted to assimilate it to "hate speech" worth to be flagged.
        Not more than some relatively frequent forms of real primary fascist speech I've had the opportunity to read in HP when it comes among other topics, to politics.

                  You don't know what a minister is?
                  I do serve others, more than you will ever know. Judging me are you?

                    Sorry Deborah. Never meant to disrispect.
                    Just familiar.
                    I can but approve all who work fo ecumenicalism.
                    And minister means "servant".
                    You admit that I call you Sister, don't you ?
                    Can you celebrate Eucharistie too ?

                Are you being snide and saying I am licensed online.
                I went to school and was ordained and licensed.

                And you guys don't show hate?

                  Yes... I was being a little snide, I'll admit it. 

                  I think a person should be judged by their actions and not by vague titles. 

                  From what you have written here it sounds like your day to day actions speak well of your character, much more than any license to be a minister of anything.

                    They are not vague to me.

                  Don't take this as hate speech but does that mean you are only allowed to minister in your state?

                  If not, what boundaries are set?  I have read many of your post, I disagree with most, is that hateful?

                  On a public forum everyone gets to say what they want, you called this freedom of speech however you are often angered (at least is seems that way) by many people who disagree with you regarding, well... religion.  I think you view it as hate. 

                  I have not personally seen you open a thread where you were just plain hating, so I give you that but you do often argue with different beliefs.

                  My real question to you is, is it healthy for someone who hold certain beliefs as the most sacred and personal to trivialize their most sincere thoughts and feelings on an open forum that ultimately causes "strife" in yourself?

                  I mean, what is it that has you so devoted to "setting everyone straight" when clearly the only vibe being generated across internet lines is well... negative?

                  I think you are wrong most of the time, you think I am wrong all the time.  I don't like your personal views on religion and what is right for people but I do appreciate that you are a nurse.

                  So what is wrong with what I said?

                    __________
                    I was ordained in two countries.
                    My state licensed me because it's where I live.
                    It is good any place

                    You have never seen me angry over people disagreeing with me.
                    You have seen me put people in their place once they personally attacked me instead of my beliefs.
                    I have had people say all kinds of nasty stuff to me, yet I still talk to them.

                    It is wrong to get angry without a cause.
                    I've seen you get angry even when it wasn't a personal attack.

                    Anyone can challenge my beliefs and I don't mind. I know what I know and stand behind it. If you or someone disagrees, that doesn't take my knowledge from me.

                    What you perceive as anger, is a woman who stands up for herself.
                    I do that for friends and family too. If anyone is under personal attack and they don't say something..well..

                    Don't tell me, that you wouldn't defend yourself.

                    Debating beliefs is not arguing.
                    I don't agree with what I don't believe. Neither does anyone here.

    If someone claims to be of God, shouldn't they follow these directions?

    Matthew 5
    11. Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

    12. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you



    Matthew 5
    43. Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.

    44. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

    45. That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven


    Some only rejoice in flattery

          Given the subjective nature of "hate speech", I would imagine there's one group of people who will be laughing all the way to the bank as a result of legislation against it.

          Lawyers.

    if it violates TOS, flag it. 

    I've seen very little hate speech here, although it does and has happened in the past. I generally don't waste my time reading the crazed stuff online.

    hate speech is nothing but ego. don't feed it.

    I've serched on Google for RSIU and I came upon :

    Radar Search Interface Unit
    or
    Regional School Improvement Unit

    Can you clarify, if you got enough patience left?
