    I got a pretty rude comment but what was odd was the user name was not a click-able link like everybody elses comments. I tried to search the user name but no results.  whocaresaboutyou 7 days ago

    your grammar is gross. Go back to school and learn the proper way to use there, they're, and their.

      The blue ones are Hubbers.  The black ones are outsiders (or else Hubber who have signed out and commented as outsiders).  (It's usually the black-letter ones that bring the rotten comments.  lol )

        I never had a comment that looked like that!  I also was worried about people taking out there frustration and flagging people just for the heck of it.

      actually, you don't have to be a member here in order to comment hubs. however, you can edit the comment capsule to where you'll only accept comments from other hubbers if you like.  that or just delete it.  i probably wouldn't worry too much about it, as it might've been some twelve or thirteen yr old kid wanting to talk trash randomly online.  i wouldn't think too much of it.  i'm sorry to hear that happened to you though.

        I do get those words mixed up but I didn't receive that comment as criticism I took it as a personal attack.

          what words did you get mixed up?   I can see why, as it does sound like a personal attack to me too.  However, the maturity level of the comment sounds like it might've came from some random teenager that might've just left that comment to try to be cool.  that's why it's probably best to just delete the comment and ignore it for now. it's probably nothing. im sorry again about what happened.

              Tamron, I am  telling you this in love since you yourself mentioned that you get those three words mixed up. I have an easy way to help you. You did  use "there" incorrectly in the above comment. It should have been "I was about to sink to their level." The word "their" indicates ownership. Now wasn't that easy?

              THERE are two boys on the bus. "There" indicates position, such as here or there.

              THEY'RE is a contraction for "there are."

              I hope I have helped instead of confusing you more.

      Eventually you get comments like that, it's just people who have nothing better to do with their time than troll the Internet looking to insult anyone they come across.

    I personally am a huge fan of off-site comments. People can add some great things and not be a part of Hubpages. However, situations like the one in this thread do happen. Some people are like that and thats the way it is. Just deny and move on, don't take it to heart. It will happen to everyone, whether we deserve it or not.

      I checkout triond.com I went on the forum I couldn't believe the disrespect  and how people treated each other over at triond it kinda reminded me of when we were kids name calling without the cussing.  I decided I am not going to write there.

        I signed up there, and I took a look at their forum (because I had a question).  I stayed signed up to write, but I'm afraid to venture into that particular forum.   smile

          The forum at Triond is awful...I avoid that place...

          I have an article there where people are bantering back and forth and insulting each other. I don't mind, it brings the traffic. That particular article has earned me over $40.

    Hey Tamron,

    The only time it is of any value to post a rude comment, is when it actually adds value to the hub itself. I've had some people leave rude comments, but I used their comment to point out how much they lack in understanding the overall message of the hub.

    Otherwise, it isn't of value. Also try to remember, comments add fresh content to your hub, so if it uses your keywords/tags in the comment, then it does have some value for your hub, regardless of how rude they are. When the Google bots/spiders/crawlers come to review your hub, then you will have updated/new stuff including your response. wink

    Some people leave witless remarks and some leave comments that appear rude(just showing how much they lack in understanding). But, you have full power and control over your comments and can do as YOU please with them. smile

    I have one Hub that's aimed at a school subject and, for the most part, one that kids in seventh/eighth grade might find.  I don't approve all the wise-a'd comments a lot of these little punks post  lol  , but they can be funny too.   lol  Stuff like, "b.o.r.i.n.g." lol and "yeh, whatever" and "bla bla bla".  I approve some of those just because I think they add "color" to the otherwise (yes, boring) Hub.   smile  (What a bunch of little punks, though.  roll )

        Do you all get a lot of comments I hardly get any and I have hubs that are 2 yrs. old?

          I have a lot of Hubs that have few or none (or the old, "good Hub" classic).  It's some Hubs that seem to get more comments than others.   The ones of mine that get a lot of comments tend to be:  Hubs in which I tried to point out that one group of people or another aren't as horrible as a lot of other people think they are (those people who want to think someone is horrible don't like to be told the people they hate aren't horrible  lol ), Hubs about dealing with sadness or grief (I turned off future comments on those, because I couldn't keep re-visiting them), Hubs about writing Hubs, and maybe a couple of review Hubs.

    A lot of people leave nasty comments, and unless they have any profanity in them I'll approve them anyway. It usually gives me the chance to have a bit of fun with my answer, and adequately demonstrate that I'm not going to take their nasty comments personally. That said, I do also have a lot of respect for a hubber who left a comment on one of my hubs today while signed in which was constructively negative. We need more people like that smile. I think sometimes it's really hard for people to be critical, even if they are trying to help someone improve their content, but some of us really do appreciate useful pointers. And no, "your writing is gross" is not a useful pointer, I'm going to guess that's about a 4th-6th grader who was bored.

      When I comment on hubs I use keywords and describe how the hub helped me.

        Ok everybody I am going to bed.  Thanks for cheering me up and making me laugh.  While I am having coffee I will comment on your articles as a thank you.

    Yes, people who are not Hubbers can post on some hubs. If the comments contain useless information that is not realted to the hub itself, that hubber who published that hub can change the comments capsule settings so that only Hubbers are allowed to post comments to the hub. Hope I helped:)
