What to do? This Hubber was 'sickened' by the content of my work, left a rude comment, and did not have the guts to email me, explaining what his/her point was.
I know the topic of the Hub is quite controversial, but if he/she found it so terribly offensive, why on earth would he/she read it in the first place?
Strange and cowardly.
I will remain on HubPages because I know that most people on this site have more sense than to write such a childish thing.
Yep-I'm steamed, but I will get over this and go on to have a great day.
You could say a couple of my hubs are starting to resemble forums threads because of the comments left. I just go with the flow. Can't please everyone.
Dating and falling in love with a sixteen year old boy is disgusting for a grown woman.
If it had been a man and a girl, you wouldnt have gotten so many positive responses.
Wow, janesix-I'm amazed you'd publicly attack me this way.
I deliberately left your name out of this, since I did want to give you privacy. Oh well, someone will probably report this, but I won't.
Looking forward to your next comment.
You are a predator who deliberately gained guardianship of a teenage boy who you were sexually attracted to. I have doubts that your intentions were platonic in nature.
Wow - this is possibly one of the most judgmental comments I've ever come across in an HP forum. Sad, really. Perhaps it would be worth getting to know lorlie a little better before making these grossly negative assumptions about her character.
As an aside, predators don't generally stay married to their 'prey' for 21 years.
Yes!I wrote a hub about Rush Limbaugh and got bashed badly. I tried to publish as many comments as possible, but the posters even started bashing each other, so I deleted anything that attacked another Hubber. It does feel like you're in a war zone, though. And yes, it will pass.
Hi lorlie, I just choose to delete it specially if it does not contribute to the hub! Take care and have a good day!
Yeah, on one of my hubs about skimboarding, someone just posted, 'I'm a pro at this" haha sure!
Just deal with the negative comments same as the positive ones. People have the right to their opinions whether they are positive or negative. If we can't handle negative comments, then we shouldn't be putting our work on display for other people to comment on.
janesix does say some odd things, sometimes, in these forums. I wouldn't take it to heart.
ps I am sure she has good reason for the odd things that she says, so I wouldn't hold it against her too much, either.
A good reason for referring to someone as 'disgusting' and a 'predator'? I don't think so. That crosses a line.
Yes, I have received offensive ,rude and sickening comments. Those that have a different opinion does not offend me. I pick which ones will stay and which will be deleted.
Ok, she says extreme things. I take that as odd.
When something is genuinely extreme and unrealistic, a filter kicks in my brain. Whatever was said gets dumped in the bin marked 'too odd to be taken seriously'.
But I also run through the possible reasons for the overly extreme behavior.
I have had comments suggesting that I have sex with my mother/grandmother/daughter and dogs (at the same time)... and those are some of the milder comments - I guess that goes with the territory if you write about places like Saudi Arabia, for some reason a lot of the Saudis don't like it when I discuss subjects like dating in Saudi Arabia and Saudi Women...
If you write anything in the slightest controversial you will get some bad comments, in fact you could write about the smurfs and get bad comments from some people out there... just smile and hit the "deny" button and delete their ass...
Lorlie, you make it clear in your hub that you stayed "just friends" until he reached legal age of consent and married you. Given this and the fact you have stayed together, I do not see how anyone can make any moral objections about your situation.

I'm of the opinion that I approve all comments even the nasty ones. If someone is going to be nasty in a comment then they should be public and made to deal with the fall out (if there is any.)However, I've noticed that...
