In the movie Bambi Thumper's mother ask him "what did your father tell you ?" To whit the answer was;
"If you can't say something nice don't say nothin' at all !!!"
Fairly sound advice, most of the time however there are times when it is impossible to stay silent.
We don't write Hubs that everyone is going to agree with, least ways I don't, some of my Hubs are designed to make a point and yes sometimes that invites adverse comments.
Yet there is a world of difference in how we respond, I am not the font of all knowledge and I get things wrong every now and again. Correct me !
If you disagree with me... Say so ! Argue with me if you like or just settle for a debate.
If I criticise, I hope I do so constructively and never in a belittling way.
To write is to invite comment, to leave the commentary box off your Hubs just looks as though you’re preaching and are not interested in other people’s opinions, which in some case in Hubs is true. They are just preaching, usually to themselves !
Of course there are also one or two nasty people around here who speak or type way before their brain is connected to their logic and common sense circuits, Ignore them. Some of them use the tactic to gain recognition and to respond gives them what they seek. Silence on the other hand annoys them, you win they lose.
Do not allow such remarks to get to you, because in that regard they win you lose and they will return.
