To Comment or not to Comment that is the question
Communication gaps and errors frequently made
There are many communications gaps and personal errors people tend to make as online writers today. This occurs in a great deal of online portals and it has definitely happened here on hubpages. The important factor to take into consideration is how a person decides to make a comment and anywhere for that matter, if they are to make one at all.
After reading a article in its full entirety, one may think of many things, if they haven’t truly read much of any of it, and simply skimmed through it all, well their commenting ability becomes null and void unless they care not to leave an insightful comment at all. There's no rule, other than the fact that the hubpages system frowns upon spam comments, excessive link dropping, very short comments, abusive language, or harassment of users.
Some folks here have managed to learn to group up as a team
What's so funny?
There are many reasons for why people do such a thing, and for why their comments tend to be the weakest in its all around significance to that of the hubpages author who worked very hard at researching, or creatively crafting up their master piece.
Note: If your article is dull and of low quality, well people may in fact choose not to read the darn thing, so edit them bad boys, add visual appeal to them, work on the grammar as best as you can, get others in your family to proof read it.

Making such supportive efforts
Supporting each others writing efforts as a community is paramount on any writers’ network, and on hubpages it’s become a powerful experience indeed for those who participate most. Insight-fulness while leaving messages, during commenting, and all does indeed count hugely. Whether it be of negative feedback or not, which does indeed occur when human beings cross paths from time to time.
People on this writers’ network have for the most part been playing pretty fair, but such a thing cannot be said for outside networks, social networking locations, and for the likes of online blogging communities. This is so because there is a presence of unfair practices by many, who may just be present to try and game the system here on the Internet. Maybe for the purposes of promoting their web locations alone, and for the obvious monetary reasons as well. That's not wise to do though folks, try to refrain from such childish activities, and or criminal behaviors onlne if you even done so or are thinking to try.
A small glimpse at what we're all facing online with contacts
To prevent from such an occurrence to happen, fine lines have been drawn digitally here on hubpages, and it’s manifested in the form of what is known as the hubber score. If you’re much more active here in this community, remain a positive and insightful supporter of others, well you’re on your way towards the right directions.
However, if you fall into the parameters of the false individuals, well your hubber score will surely be hurt, and the bots here on hubpages can detect anything irregular in terms of online behavioral practices, the amount of reading one may or may not do, as well as the more balance kind of hubtivity, or hubpages activities one decides to participate in here.
Examples of Negative feedback on hubpages
I'll never ever forget the time I had first joined hubpages and noticed a hubber who had written in their comment space hateful racial remarks, the hubber had wrote it back to one of their commentator's or followers, and it happened to be a member of his own race at that.
I was so pissed at the very fact that this dude had the nerve to place hateful degrading language into a text portal area for commenting, and also did it onto their own hub article of all things.
This made me so angry that I decided to react, and comment back, to call that person up on their behavior here on hubpages, and this wasn't no light matter at all, it was a matter of grave importance to me, and so even though the person who was attacked virtually by use of foul degrading language wasn't someone I knew of, I knew it was wrong.
Us writers have a resposibility
The premise here I present to the readers of this article is that we all have a responsibility to uphold the rightful spirit of that of the online global community as well as hubpages, and when people decide to make sly remarks and take digital punches at others in any writers community, forum, article itself, email inbox or comment thread. It shouldn't be taken lightly, and should be handled appropriately and no matter whom you may be.
This is something of a very touchy subject, but one may use their sense of reason to fully comprehend what the words here are placing into action. We must hold ourselves accountable for our very own digital actions. We need to realize what it is our messages are putting out to that of others, and also if we’re doing it socially on web locations like Facebook, Google plus, and the likes.
Great communication books
Standing up for whats right!
I stood up for the guy, because no one else seemed to care, and none of the other hubbers who commented did a thing in reaction to his behavior in the comment thread, and as if it was quite alright to do so. I had thought to myself "is this right, do people here actually approve of such behavior on this network on hubpages."
So I went along and decided to flag it as inappropriate behavior here, and I will do it again and again if I see such putrid hit the screens here on hubpages, and if anyone thinks otherwise then yes, I will call them up on it and in the comment spaces too. Isn't this the reason why we have a comment area in the first place, isn't it the reason why us humans have formed digital communicative devices for making online communications. We should be able to handle issues with others immediately whenever inappropriate behavior is detected.
Don't get me wrong we all have a opinion of things, certain things written into words are obviously outlawed online as malicious activity, inappropriate for anyone to read, overly promotional activities, and the list goes on and on.
The Circle Of life
What goes around comes back - Karma
This will all come back to us in the long run, and is the very pathway we choose that can potentially ruin our chances online to manifest a more positive outlook on things, especially if we do nothing at all when we see something wrong. By spreading negativity to that of others, by displaced anger in any way or format, and by not handling your issues you may have with others directly will cause a negative side effect for sure.
For every action there is a equal and opposite reaction, and so yes indeed things will prompt you to take action, the end results is all determined by the force, and angle of approach you decide to take in it’s application by effective commenting.
Positive feedback is by far the best way to get back much more of the same. (You get what you put out!)
