I don't know, Mark. These are indeed confusing times. One could only guess why some people do the things that they do. The power of anonymity is indeed a double edged sword, my friend.
What a novel!
Seems like everyone has ulterior motives to me.
If there really is manipulatoin of information and identities I wouldn't be suprised. That's what happens in the real world, not just in the internet.
People are just being true to themselves.
Stupid fact is, this won't get anywhere and stress is bad for your health, so people involved in all this mess are just doing harm to them.
It is more drama than a daily soap opera, but entertaining to see it playing out.
It's impossible to keep track of the players to email them privately to pull their heads in.
Whether someone really did die or not, it's rather tasteless to brawl about the funeral in public.
And nobody gains anything from the process.
I just remind myself that a significant minority of the world's population is a little loopy, and there is every chance that they are all multiple personalities of the one individual, or it is an unfortunate intersection of two somewhat wobbly individuals.
Just don't let it rattle any of the steady Hubbers, and it will blow over.
Who knows, maybe Maddie will come to work on Monday and ban the lot of them!
I'm just clarifying that my earlier comments were in reference to the hubber that goes by the ID "part26". My confusion stems from the comments made by "part26 who has suddenly made his/her debut with stark accusations about another hubber.
Though "part26" has been a member of Hubpages for 4 months, there are no hubs published under this ID. "ASHWINSPGA", on the other hand has published a total of 133 hubs in less than 3 months.
As I have exchanged comments with "ASHWINSPGA" but have never interacted with "part26", I am therefore inclined to give "ASWINSPGA" the benefit of the doubt.
Death, mourning, and funerals are very serious affairs that should be carefully broached even in private correspondance. I strongly feel that "part26" should not have made a public accusation in the absence of "ASHWINSPGA".
"Anonymity" refers to "part26" who has neither a profile picture nor any published hubs.
This really is a mystery why this is such an issue. I said at the end of one of the threads that I think some people have way too much time on their hands. I stand by that assessment.
Don't people really have nothing better to do?
The way I see it, there are two possibilities. Either this part26 is right, in which case the accused hubber gets exactly what (s)he wants: attention. Or part26 is wrong, in which case I hope that this part26 character is proud of himself (herself).
I just figure all the time and energy this person is exerting trying to expose Ashwin for allegedly having duped us all is time and energy he could put into writing hubs.
I say that we let him howl at the moon by himself and just ignore him. There are plenty of other good threads in the forums.
I got shocked to see My name also involved there.. More Imaginery people are here...
What a confusing mess. Didn't we go through one of these messes a while back when someone else died on their honeymoon or something? And that was a big bunch of bulls**t.
I'm just so shocked, as I was in that last case too, that anyone has the 'Head-strength' to come to hubpages and post anything. I'm postive that that would not be my reaction to news of a loved one dying. No offense to all my hub friends here but I can vouch that I probably wouldn't have the brain power to turn on my computer in horrible times as that.
I might be wrong about this Ashwin guy and if I am I apologize but.....
just my loonies worth Zsuzsy
Sad thing is, this is spreading through the topics like the plague! Seems every thread you open is highjacked by this crap lol! I forgot it was the weekend when I posted for HP's help on one of them. I can only imagine what it will be like for them Monday! It will take them all week just to clean up all these threads! How sad that people are so bored and have nothing better to do than that!
Well, I have avoided getting involved, having been suckered by the last "death" at hubpages.
And, having lost people close to me, the last thing I would do would be apologize to people I had pissed off here.
But who knows, and it is cheaper than TV
I've just decided to hang back and let it all sort itself out...
When my mother passed away unexpectedly, it wasn't my first thought to post it on here...but it was close to the top. Was I trying to garner public sympathy? Not in the least. I was in pain and since my writing comes straight from the heart (usually) there was no way to cover it up. The reason I felt compelled to publish something was similar to the reason I felt it necessary to tell my boss and co-workers why I would be gone for a while. Hub pages is part of my daily life and I consider quite a few of you to be my friends. Never met you, would probably not even recognize you if I strolled by...but friends nonetheless. To disappear inexplicably for even a week seemed....thoughtless somehow. Especially when I'm on here for at least a portion of every day.
Whether or not Ashwin's girl actually passed away or not...or whether he is actually who he says he is...well, I'm torn. My first instinct is to always believe a person until proven otherwise. Unfortunately, I was the victim once of a person that was a compulsive liar in the game of Everquest. I thought he was truly a friend...and during Hurricane Katrina, when he suddenly was absent and I believed he lived in New Orleans...I was in a complete panic trying to find out if he was okay or not. Which is how I eventually found out the truth. I'm pretty good at the Nancy Drew stuff and I found his father in Washington State through vague pieces of information that my friend had dropped here adn there in conversation. The father was really surprised that I thought his son was in New Orleans. I never told his father why I thought this...it was enough to know that I'd been fooled.
So I'm staying out of this one...
If Ashwin is real, then I'm not about to add to his misery. And if Ashwin is not...then eventually the truth will come out. Until then, I'm not about to trust a source as suspicious as this "part26" either.
I'm with zsuzsy, this whole thing comes off like someone in desperate need of attention. Seems completely obvious and has seemed suspect since the original post regarding "my girl" was put up. Unfortunately, saying so runs the risk of making one look like some evil-uncaring a-hole, so nobody calls people on it for fear of their instincts being wrong.
I suppose kindness and giving the benefit of the doubt is always the best course to take though: if someone did pass on, well, the need for kindness is obvious. And if it's just some idiot with no self esteem jerking our chains, well, he probably needs the kindness too.
I'm new and not sure what's going on and around. Confusing...
I have been following this for the last couple of days as best I could. I must admit, I did find it strange that someone could take the time to sign onto hubpages - even if just leaving a short message - upon learning of such a tragedy. I mean, don't you have to go somewhere? It's your fiance, for heavens sake. That being said, I have swapped comments with Ashwin on a number of occasions and he seems like a nice guy. Now, all these people are supposed to be the same person or maybe a couple of people posing as many. It is interesting. I don't really know why someone would feel the need to do that, but who knows?
When coming here, I had no expectations that I was going to see drama here. I've seen enough drama to last a life time with star trek simming. I didn't expect it here. I've been here for two days and almost got sucked into the trouble entirely. I wrote two post and decided I better step back and just let it runs its course.
I agree this is a potential minefield in terms of whether or not the accusations are true, but what ever happened to, "innocent until proven guilty?"
Also, I know it may be considered a little odd for someone to post straight after losing a spouse, but who is to say how each person will react to bereavement! I doubt anyone knows until faced with it, and not everyone is the same. After my first Husband died I posted on the Internet within 12 hours to tell my online friends what had happened. I needed their support and to know they were thinking and praying for me. Someone in Ashwin's situation who alledgedly has no parents or siblings, may ONLY have his friends to rely on, which is a sad situation most of us are not in the position of, as most of us would have family support in a time like this.
I truly hope my sympathies to Ashwin are not proven to be wrong, but having seen how "Part26" has conducted himself, both to Ashwin, Anitha1978, and anyone who has supported them, (creating fake ID's very close to actual Hubber's who disagreed with him ID's, with gloating comments to boot), I am inclined to give Ashwin my support and belief in what has happened. Call it an instinct, but I feel Part26 has simply been, troublemaking, spiteful and vindictive, and has not offered any evidence that what has apparently happened to Ashwin's fiance is untrue. All he has proven to me is that quite possibly Ashwin did allow Anitha1978 to use his Adsense code, which is not a crime as far as I am aware. If indeed it is proven to be true that Ashwin has lost his fiance in a hit and run accident, then I am betting Part26 will go very quiet and not come forward to apologise, even if presented with a copy of the actual death certificate.
I am also disturbed by the title of this thread, "I'm Lovin' it", as again, if what Ashwin has said is proven to be true, this is a pretty awful title to give to a thread.
I kind of hope Ashwin does come forward and publish proof in the form of a death certificate or similar on a Hub, although if his words are true, he shouldn't have to. At least this would put this Part26 to shame.
I always like to give people the benefit of the doubt until proven otherwise, (sometimes more fool me for doing so), but I prefer to be that way than a cynic who doubts everyone's intentions until proven otherwise.
There is also another Hub now out there about the kind of Hubs Ashwin has previously published about Women's bodies and the exploitation of women. Whilst I totally agree this is a contraversial subject, I also feel it is unfair to associate the two subjects together. Whether you agree or disagree with the nature of Ashwin's Hubs, surely if what has apparently happened to his fiance is true, then he certainly didn't deserve that level of punishment, and nor did his fiance. As a women I am less bothered by the content of his Hubs than I am by the way he is being treated by Part26, and if his hubs are immoral in any way it is a separate issue for another time and place. I also feel it is not possible thesedays to tell if girls in photos are underage or not, so it is an open accusation that may be incorrect to say that they "appear to be underage", again, partly because of what "Part26" has said in previous posts.
To all of my friends/ fellow Hubbers reading this, I do not intend this as an attack on any comments you may have made I do not totally agree with. I simply wanted to make my point and hope to encourage more lateral thinking by some who may be "jumping on the doubting bandwagon". If I am proven wrong in the trust I have placed in Ashwin, then I apologise in advance.
Thank you for reading.
Why are so many "new" people chiming in here to stir the pot?
So many "new" names that have posted few or no hubs, seem to be especially interested in this "no-subject" subject.-- especially the ones who are protesting the loudest.
Are they all the same person? If not-- they are making themselves very suspect, especially when there are so many much more interesting threads to follow.
Yes, Rochelle, it is the same person. I guess they don't realize that if anyone is fooled by this post then it is of no consequence to anyone except the believer so I don't get the point of them hijacking the entire forum and every thread in it to post the same response over and over and over again!
Yes, and these people are taking over the forums making them unreadable.
I am giving Ashwin the benefit of the doubt; he doesn't seem to be an attention getter which the troll is. I will keep my mind and heart open.
I was very actively involved in both the threads. That Part 26 just tried to be very smart. Publishing no hubs and making a garbage of this forum. Now that Anitha has published a hub clarifying all the confusion between "Ashwin" and "Anitha", this Part 26 seems to have VANISHED.
Yes it was all like a kidding drama and waste of time and energy. I have been interacting with Anitha ever since she joined. I read some of her hubs and found her very interesting. I got more involved because she seems to be originally from INDIA as I am.
Men get impressed easily seeing Women, But why dont you realise that it is a Shemale. The profile image that Anitha is using is taken from a porn site called Debonair Blog. Will any Girl use her Own photo and that of their family members in hubs so simply. This Anitha has published it as it is of some other people, and i have already notified the webmaster of that site regarding this user making false claims that the photo is owned by her. Only thing she did was to find out similar photos and edited and put her name in it claiming that she was the one in it. I never vanish and this drama will have No End Untill the Wolf is killed.
Anitha says that she is from South-East Asia that is from Singapore, then how you came to know that she is from India. Did she phone you directly and tell it. You are always the first one to post comments in Anithas hubs and in every thread to defend her. Are you a God father of Girls
Don't worry I have got a long list of Users behind me from Part01 to part 999
If one vanishes another one comes in to fight until Anitha apologises for starting the drama.
The dream she had in her mind was to start gaining popularity first in forums by actively participating to get nice scores. But all plans were spoiled by me. Now i am watching the new Id created by ashwin and seeing how long the drama of acting as a newbie by that person will continue.
A secret revelation as to how i find it out. I track them using a software which helps me to find out the correct location from which the posts are made in this forum. So i keep on laughing at Ashwin who tries to prove his innocence using different profile names.
As a fairly new hubber I enjoy looking in on the discussions on the forum. These certainly did confuse me. Perhaps people are making things up because they like being the centre of attention. Or they might be true. It is very confusing to be but as good as watching the TV.
Well, I hope this isn't too much of a disappointment, but in the case of my life he's not succeeding. I only got slightly confused, as I thought the crusades were something of the past.
Well, out of curiosity I've hacked the computers of the NSI, CIA and FBI and it turns out that part 28 runs around a park naked each Friday. On Saturdays he visits obscure clubs, wearing a gala dress and Chanel #5. Sundays are usually spent alone, when he takes cocaine anally. Once high he will surf the net, looking for hot nude midgets movies.
