Thank GOD for the IP function.

    I just wanted to say THANK YOU to Hubpages staff for implementing the IP function.

    Tonight I received two horrid comments from the same user, one while not signed in, one while signed in - and the thought came up:

    Is there any "block" option in the works or on the ever-growing list of stuff you guys are working on?  Can there be an option to block a particular IP from posting comments throughout my hubs?

    I would adore the consideration of something like this.

      although I'd like that option as well to save the hassle of seeing it and getting irritated by it, some people can just ruin your day because they have no class and are so ridiculously negative.

      It's funny though when someone tries to leave a comment "offline" and thinks their not being seen, then they sign onto their account and leave a comment and don't realize both instances give them away.

    well why dont you keep your comments in moderation ( i think you do ), and just delete the hate  comments you have been getting. Game over, with just a click. The guy will give up once he/she sees the filthy comments are not published soooner or later.

    but IP blockage wold be a more elegant and one time solution forever , thing wait till this function comes...

      it would also solve the issue of not being able to remove them from being your fan, cause if you block their IP they can't even leave fan mail smile or what if you blocked their IP it removed them from your fan list smile hmmm.... ok neurons sparking...

    No, I think you should keep an eye on it and if this person posts nasty comments frequently then report them to hub pages. If they are a member they should have their account cancelled if they make a habit of it, personal attacks are not allowed here.

      That might be a good solution.

    I'm new here. Can anyone explain what's it all about in this thread?

    You can't pick and choose your fans. You can f**k them up so they stop being your fans, but you can't pick them. That's how it is in real life, and I personally like that hubpages do emulate it. smile

    I don't care if haters are a part of my fan club.  That just means they get more irritated when they see my posts, hubs, etcetera.

    What I do care about is having the option to block comments from a particular IP.  Then I wouldn't have to worry about some jerk like anime_nanet swooping in and saying bad things about me for no reason.

    He's probably not smart enough but a lot of people know how to re-set their IP address!

    Most of the IP are dynamic on a network. Blocking the IP will not work. There are several options in the comment capsule. You can set these options so that comments are not displayed without your approval. It can be set to restrict unsigned comments.

    Yes - after nearly a year on the site I am well aware of the comment box's options.  Thanks folks.  However - blocking comments by IP address would be useful for those spammy comments, deterring comments from jerks, and if a user is blocked from commenting and continues to do so it then becomes a pattern and can mean more action for harrassing others.

    Since 2 threads were started in order to atack me i'll repeat my message in this one to those who haven't read it yet.

    I've put one comment and I don't consider it that nasty. I just pointed out something that Misha had already stated.

    As for the other one I don't know what your talking about. Please post it. And don't give me that ip crap. I'm not the only one that uses that ip, you know.

    Another thing, now it's you that is conducting a personal attack on me, and on my contents.

    But I don't care. We are intitled to freedom of speach after all, aren't we? i don't know if that includes calling other people jerks but that's ok. But, you know what? We are also intitled to the right of never wanting to speak again to other person, as a matter of fact. Since you're "gamergirl" you've probably made contact with WoW, so maybe you are familiar with this expression:

    I refuse to post the other comment you left - and find it funny for you to say that you did not post the other comment.  Who else at your precise location uses Hubpages? Who else at your precise location used Hubpages within five minutes of you signing in?

    Calling you a jerk in reference to your nasty comments on my hubs IS a personal attack. -shrug- I don't care.  Spades are spades.

    Your content is pirated material - you know it, the world knows it, so why you're defensive about your efforts to try and make money promoting pirated anime is beyond me.

    Everything else you've said.. well - I don't particularly care.  I just want to block you from commenting on my Hubs.

      Given that she's read this thread, it seems unlikely that she would continue to comment on your hubs. So, if that's really all that you wanted, perhaps you should be content with that, as I don't think this request is likely to be implemented anytime soon -- I requested it myself ages ago, possibly before you'd even joined HP.

      As an aside, anime-nanet is not a troll. She has left perfectly relevant and thoughtful comments on my own hubs and I have never had any problems with her. This doesn't excuse any allegedly inappropriate comments, but nor does it warrant a witch hunt.

        anime_nanetposted 8 years ago in reply to this

        Thanks for the support Isabella. The comment I made in her hub about adult content in hubpages and that apparently made her mad was simply reinforcing a comment that Misha already had left. That is: she made a whole hub set against adult content, but turned on all the adds, which due to the content of the hub and some words used clearly show adult publicity. That made me laugh, so I stated that in a comment and used some sarcasm. It seems I was taken seriously.

        I DID NOT write the other one, whatever it was.

        Ps. - I'm a he, as you can read if you go to my profile. Na Net means In the Net in Portuguese, my home country. I should have chosen a better nick, I completly forgot Nanet can be considered a women name ^_^'

        Ps 2 - I don't have nothing more to add to this subject so I will never again write about it. Feel safe Gamergirl: it's my point of honor never to comment or even open one of your hubs again.

    Thank you for commenting, Isabella.  Your opinion is noted. smile

    Charlotte, I've had this happen before, but I did not get all in uproar until the user continued and persisted for weeks on the forums and on my hubs. At that point, I went to the HP staff, and the situation was corrected, and the IP address blocked. The user posted comments as a registered user and non-registered with different names, some of which were derogatory towards myself, but all comments were derogatory towards myself.

    I'd suggest talking to the HP staff, but if anime_nanet is not doing this to other hubbers and is being productive on HP, I don't think it would be right to block them from posting. The user I spoke of followed me around on other people's hubs when I would make a comment, as well as all over my hubs and the forums, and he did nothing else but harass me.

    Whitney -

    I don't mean a whole site-wide IP ban.

    I meant the option to, individually, be able to block users from posting on MY hubs, rather like blocking people on instant messengers.

    Given that it's been a few days now and the comments have indeed stopped, I haven't pressed the issue further.

    Just ignore the comments you don`t like. As Misha said, it`s much like ignoring people in the real life, oh damn I enjoy that feeling, it makes me stronger. lol

    I can`t believe you just called someone a jerk, that must have been a moment of tension.

    That's why we have comment moderation option smile
