I just have to mention this: I read the comments on Hub of The Day, and there is a Hubber that has made 2 very rude comments to the author. She has approved the comments, I suppose. I just think it is entirely uncalled for. He seems to have a big chip on his shoulder. This is not the first time I've read his rants.
We've all read his rants... granted most didn't know who they were reading. I think it is all about jealousy. He fashions himself a literary genius and if he doesn't get the attention he feels he deserves then he goes all diva.
She showed great character in not deleting his comments, but we all would have understood if she did/does.
Believe me, Mel - there's one hubber who hates me! Otherwise, I get along with everyone here (as far as I know). lol
The hateful comments are still on that hub of the day. I can't believe someone could be so rude. And someone said this guy thinks he's a writing genius? Have you checked out his grammar and mechanics??
Okay, never mind the very real possibility that you are a narcissistic loon, I gotta know how you keep so many passwords and account names organized. What you lack in writing talent you more than make up for with your mad organizational skillz.
I live my life around the hubpage forums, so it isn't so hard. It gets easier because I have no writing talent. But, if it makes people feel better, I have been banned already for writing hubs that were too funny for hubpages....well not this persona but the other one I had that wasn't a real secret. And I am totally kidding now about it being me who left the comment...I don't even read hubs unless a friend requests me to and even then, I don't publicly comment.
I am shocked! He's one of my followers. I guess I'm on his good side, but yikes! I think it was nice of her to let him say what he wants (free speech and all) but I would have deleted it too. Honestly, though, it's good that she kept them in order to show what type of hubber he really is.
I might get flagged for this, but I swear it's not meant as a personal attack... but has anyone considered that this poster might have an honest psychological condition? If so, the attention that he is getting from all this (and I'm including myself) is just aggravating it. I remember one thread in particular where every post seemed to be made in a completely different emotional state than the one before... add to that his obvious delusions of superiority and his attention seeking and it's pretty much classic borderline personality disorder.
He left me a nice comment on one of my recent Hubs. He is capable of leaving nice comments when he wants to, but that's not his M.O. Angry rants, rudeness, and profanity don't belong on HubPages. As Santa's Helper, should I put a piece of coal in his stocking? I did catch his ranting on the Forum, but ignored it.
The comments aren't on the hub anymore. If you do not moderate your comments, other people can read your comments before you do. It's possible M.T. hadn't seen them at first, rather than having approved them.
When you receive a comment on one of your hubs, do you always post back with a comment? Or, just when there is something to post back about. For example if someone just comments that it is a nice hub, do I need to...
I am not looking to name names here as this happens quite a lot on Hubpages, but can someone please clarify whether or not it is against the rules for a Hubber to come to your hub, leave a comment and then include a...
When I get a comment on one of my hubs I usually reply, at least with a thanks if I can. I notice some do and others do not reply to comments.I am wondering if there is any reason for not replying apart from being too...
An interesting take on the demise of Squidoo. Some spot on, some misses the mark, lots left unsaid - but then it is an external perspective<link snipped>So what bits would you underline - and which bits were...
