Oh Hubbers, please! Call a spade, a spade
Oh Hubbers, please!
It is the 23rd Day of August 2011 andI just want to say to some hubbers-Oh please! There is no need to fluff anyone’s feathers here. It makes Hubpages look bad and you stupid
I recently read some really terribly written hubs with bad language, research and taste, only to get to the comments section and find someone had posted a comment that read “a well written, well researched and informative hub”. That is such BS. It does no body good. Not the author, the reader nor Hubpages to leave lame comments on a terrible piece of work.
I can understand if someone is using English as a second language (I am too), but there is need to at least give it the respect of learning from your mistakes or even asking other hubbers to correct you if your language is glaringly bad. I must be honest; it is annoying to read bad ly written English. This cannot however be used along with a terribly researched hub and then get a good comment!
It is annoying to read a comment that feels like it is saying, “Hey look I read your hub” instead of just being a comment. If you have nothing to say and just want to show you have passed through-say so! Say how you feel about it at least. Do not feed us this “A very well written hub…” rubbish. More than anyone else it makes you look stupid.
You are making us look bad
Imagine your comment falling under or above one of these silly good for nothing comments? It just does not look good. Much as people understand that there are BS comments out there, I still would not want to be in the same boat/page with them. Get your act right there are people who are here to do serious writing, if you feel like messing around, go to Facebook!
You make Hubpages look bad
One of the most important thing I find on a website (besides the date of an articles publication among other things) is the comments section. This is where the world speaks for me. Where opinions merge or clash. The internet provides a well archived history of a “dialogue”. A website with spammy childish comments is not taken seriously. Please do not bring down the name of Hubpages by leaving behind comments that are blatantly untrue or non-reflective of the content you are reviewing.
I for one would like to see Hubpages getting the respect it deserves (in most cases). The better the reputation of the website is, the better it is for all writers and webmasters. It must be understood that this is a collective effort to generate more traffic and earn from our efforts. Let us take responsibility as a community and work towards the same goal. Investing in a great site with a wealth of great information and perspectives should be a common interest. Please do not be the spanner in the works and leave silly comments. Please!
