Dealing with Fakers on HubPages: A Solution

  1. 0
    Tanmoy Acharyaposted 5 years ago

    An idea that may convert Forums on HubPages as an intellectual powerhouse of the internet, and make it faker-free.

      The Forums on HubPages in a wonderful platform. I have myself created one on the topic which investigated on the

      Usefulness of Art, a fews days ago. The link :  http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/85248#post1831394  .It was a dilightful experience for me. There are brilliant minds on this website, and they  come from all over the world. This platform has great possibilities for intellectual expression. And if what I have in mind becomes a reality, then it may make HubPages one of the top websites on the Internet.

      There are fakers who use that flatform. I have a solution to deal with them.

      The principle: if someone wants to discuss with you, then he will talk with you. He will try to understand what you are

      saying, and will make proper replies, and you will write back what you think. If ever, you have the intuition that his motive

      is to sunconsciously injure you, then ask him this question:   ARE YOU REAL?

      If he is real, then you will clearly realize that from his response, which will be surprise, or a little anger. But if he is a faker, then he will increase his subconscious assults. In some cases, he will just vanish, and never show you his face.

      I actually want a new-feature, similar to that what happens with 'Questions' on HubPages, which is, if an answer gets

      enough 'dislikes', then it will become hidden. If enough people vote that a forum-comment is coming from a trickster, then

      it will vanish, and let us talk without abuse.

      Evolution Guy and his generator will never return. But that person has many more accounts on this website: I have

      discovered 2 more accounts that belong to that imposter. You may be interested to know how to deal with them.

          Because you can imagine what would happen with a dislike button?  It would be worth posting some threads in the religious forum just to see how fast they disappeared - we could run a competition!

          Empress Felicity has already given you the easiest solution - if you don't want to join a conversation don't, and if you don't want to reply to someone don't.

          If you don't like what someone says hit the report button, but if the comment is within the rules do not be surprised if the moderators let it stand.

          Or do you think that anyone who doesn't agree with you should be banned?

          Most of us older hubbers know exactly who Evolution Guy is, and considering the provocation I'm surprised his replies to you were as temperate as they were.

          As it looks like this one could run and run and the telly is awful tonight, I'm grabbing the popcorn!

    Here's a solution that I've found which has the advantages of being (a) simple, (b) effective and (c) not time consuming at all.

    My solution is this:

    If I think someone is an idiot/faker, I ignore them.

    Tanmoy Acharyaposted 5 years ago

    But I feel that if you leave imposters free to comment, and which is visible, then every effort to keep that discussion clean and meaningful will be lost. If we make
    those comments hide, then we will really make a useful discussion.

    Ignoring is not a solution, because you do not know whom to ignore. And even you know, someone else may not be able to detect that someone is just a fake alias. We
    must stamp fake as fake.

    You have been here all of two months and are trying to dictate rules to our shared community and now started "shouting" at people.

    Frankly I think that is more disruptive and disrespectful than the quite normal and permitted hubpages actions of using pseudonyms

    I think you need to observe and understand this community better before setting yourself up as a dictator

        I'm not sure how true this is as I have not studied the forum rules in any depth, however, I'm not saying that it is incorrect. If it is permitted to talk about pornography etc, and you have refrained, that's because it is your choice. And, just like yourself, other hubbers have the freedom of choice also.
