    Why are so many Questions Answered with a personal attack on the person who asks the Question. I have noticed this a lot on Hubpages, it is the same with Comments?

    Not many Answers or Comments are delivered in a Constructive manner, most of them are personal attacks? Surely this opens a can of worms and gets Hubbers back hair standing on end?

    I think it is much better to agree to disagree on any Topic? Everybody is entitled to their own opinion, but you can't attack people personally because of a difference of their opinion!

    Answers/comments should be strictly kept on topic. If one Hubber disagrees with another Hubbers point of view, that's fine but there are proper ways to point this out. Using good manners politness and respect.

    Name calling/back stabbing etc, are only going to damage the Hubpages website and in turn your earnings. I am guilty of this in a retaliation sense, I really can't believe how some Hubbers talk to each other on here?

    I do think Hubpages is a good place to be. We should all be working together as a team, improving our dialect to each other. There is no need to tell other Hubbers that you love them etc, but I think on topic Constructive Comments would make Hubpages  a better place to be.

    Just my humble opinion.

      I certainly agree with this MP50.  I am of the mindset if you can not offer something positive, simply move on and say nothing.

      I am relatively new here and still reading, reading and reading, but have not encountered too much of what you reference, but will take you at your word that it does exist, hence my above response.

    Definately is a forum culture ,maybe a 'vote up' vote down button would be a positive thing. Too many 'downs' and the comment /post disappears. wink

    A 'vote up' vote is alright, and it encourages answerers to answer more questions.

    A 'vote down' vote is not good, as it makes the answerer feels bad, and the answerer is likely never to answer another question in the future.

    If you don’t like an answer, just leave it the way it is, or better still provide your answer which you believe is the right one.

        He/she can vote by not "voting up".

        You spend your precious five minutes answering a question, and then, a guy comes and in a fraction of a second he has voted your answer down and he is not providing an answer. That is not fair.

    I am not so sensitive about down votes and once I leave the Answers area I never think about it. It is annoying at times like when people talked about their personal experience with cancer drugs and they all got voted down, but that just some idiot with nothing better to do.
