Is having one link in your Hub too many links?

Reading another Hub might be required...

This Hub was originally a written piece of civil disobedience. You see, I might have perused a hub from a talented hubber who was frustrated with, well, Hubpages, and I might have agreed with him/her. Why do I use the word might you may ask? Might I be a coward? True, one may contend that I only touched on some of the issues that he/she/it brought up, and the issues that I mentioned were trivial at best.

My answer to such a rude question is how could I be a coward? You are assuming that I read a hub from this Insane Character (which I do not admit to), and that in this crazy fantasyland of yours, I was afraid to take a stand on a number of pertinent topics. My retort would be, you are obviously insane and should call your doctor as soon as possible; however, if one should take the time to read this hub, one’s sanity would be restored.

In this busy and complex world it is nice to get some feedback from our writing peers; however, how many comments do we get at HubPages, or on any other website, that are really helpful? This hub will teach you how to write the perfect comment every time.

Before I begin, I must state that I, unequivocally, have never heard of the Hubber Insane Mundane. Furthermore, I have never read any of his, or possibly her, hubs. In addition, I did not take a direct quote out of his hub in order to create this hub. I will provide a link to his hub, at the end of this hub, so that you can read the article and see for yourself that I have never laid eyes on his article (after all if I quoted his article, certain people might think that I agree with him, which I do not).

This article was great!-This comment works for all Hubs and or articles, and writing it takes little or no time. After all, the writer does not want to know what you actually liked about his/her article, so you spare them the eyestrain of reading a much longer, and helpful, comment.

Thanks for sharing!-This is a great comment to write because it is like getting a participation ribbon in grade school (well you tried, Timmy). You shared your poem, life story, part of your soul, or an article that took hours to write and you get is, "Thanks for sharing!"

Voted up and interesting!-No writer wants to know what about his or her article is interesting, and what does the word interesting, in this context, actually mean? For example, looking at someone's face that has a severe case of acne can be interesting (such was the case when I was a teenager).

Nice Hub!-Nice is such a, well, nice word, and nice is a nice word to use as a comment (though nice might be considered an overused word). Why is the word nice a nice way to leave a nice comment? Because when you use the word nice, you leave a nice mystery to the author of the nice article. He/she gets to discover what you meant by using the word nice...nice!

Thanks for sharing this wealth of information! -I am not going to start sermonizing about generalities again (nice); however, this comment should only be used when a writer does share a wealth of information. If a person writes such helpful hints like breathing is conducive to staying alive, or most automobiles run on gasoline, he/she are not really sharing a wealth of helpful information.

Awesome Hub!-This answer is easy to write, has a sense of mystery, and is like a time machine contained in a statement because it takes you back to the 80’s.

This article was great! Thanks for sharing! Voted up and interesting! Nice Hub! - This is the ultimate comment one can write about another person’s writing. It means that perfection has been reached and that one should never read again. If that person were to read again after gazing upon perfect prose, he or she would be tempted to poke their eyes out with rusty nails. In addition, this comment will be one of the mysteries of the ages, just like Stonehenge, because people will always wonder what you meant by this comment.

In conclusion, if one merely writes, verbatim, any of the comments in this article, you will never have to write a meaningful comment again. As an aside, I wanted to answer a few questions that may have come up while reading this article. Yes, I have written plenty of inane comments during my time at Hubpages. Yes, it can be very difficult to write a meaningful comment on another writer’s piece of work. Yes, I am being truthful, depending on your definition of truth, when I say that I have never read insane mundane’s article The 'Big Bad Bang' Moderation Theory of HubPages. How is that possible one may ask, well it involves the fourth dimension, Black Matter, and my extreme allergic reactions to gauntlets, censorship, and flags.

Well, I must say this hub is what I have come to expect from you - very funny and quite clever. Hmmm, that doesn't seem like much of a comment, does it? I know exactly what to do. :)

"This article was great! ~~~~~~ Thanks for sharing! ~~~~~~ Voted up and interesting! ~~~~~~~ Nice Hub!"

I added the squiggels to personalize my comment. I am content knowing that you now feel both affirmed and encouraged. :)

I'm thinking...I know I will come up with something. Just give me some time. I'll get back to you. I know I have a comment. It's around here somewhere. O I know! I left it in the fridge to cool. No, that was the lemonade. OK. So I forget where I left my comment. But I'll find it sooner or later, and when I do you can bet I'll rush it over here to paste it up here before I loose it again. Promise.

In the meantime, have you seen where I left my reading glasses?

I totally agree with the first two comments. It's one of those things we're not sure just how to respond, too. Frankly, I like all the great article, thanks for sharing, voted up and interesting , nice hub comments which come my way. No sarcasm intended, this hub is entertaining and it kept me on the page.

I love any or all comments as well (except from trolls), but a fellow writer was venting some steam in one of his articles, and his comments gave me the idea for this hub.

Reading glasses? You don't need no stinking reading glasses. Have you checked the top of your head or the fridge? lol

You read the article before I was finished writing it (I was trying to add link, which made the article visible). Yes, as a matter of fact, I feel affirmed, encouraged, and thankful.

Dang, I think you READ my article MORE than I did! LOL! This particular Hub makes up for your inane comment that you left on mine, and, oh, thanks for sharing... Ha! In all seriousness, this Hub was fun to read and thanks for the link back! By the way, capitalize my screen name, as it is not insane mundane, it is Insane Mundane; cheers! :D

Insane Mundane, Who in hades are you? Some might think that your article contained many valid points, but, I sir, did not! Also, it is not weird, in any way, that I had trouble creating a link to your Hub (so keep your inane conspiracy theories to yourself!). As to your contention that I am too much of a coward to admit I completely agree with your hub... is both insane and mundane!! Please, please people do not take the time to read any of his hubs (they may hurt your brain). Okay, I have beaten the dead horse enough...time to write another hub.

I changed my mind: I want 10% of your royalties from this article, since I'm allowing you to steal my idea... LOL! Come on, give me money... No, the beheaded rubber chicken you sent me in the mail counts for nothing! Ha!

Are you still alive or did you forget how to leave great comments while Google repeatedly stabbed you in the face with a soldering iron? Huh? What? You need a how-to guide about writing comments? Dang, bro... Surely you can take off your tinfoil hat for a whole minute and display your inner retard, right?

I have had some health problems lately, but I do have one new hub out- Self Help: They and you.

Oh, I didn't know about that... I don't come around here as much either, but I had some extra time the other day and was just clowning around... I'll check your latest Hub out, when I get a chance.
