Whether it's a hubber you're following or a hub you randomly came across and you don't like it, but there is nothing offensive about the hub; are you compelled to tell the hubber that you don't like the hub or even more so, specifically comment on what you don't like about it? OR, do you click away and say nothing?

Yes, I grew up with that same philosophy from my mother telling us that very thing all the time, so I apply it in life too.
Ha ha! I kind of think so too. After all, these people are visitors and I don't know that it's their place to be so critical. Tips or some constructive criticism is one thing (and that, I don't even feel comfortable doing). I think some people feel a
Yes, constructive criticism is one thing, but to be downright ugly serves no purpose. They can always just click the thumbs down and move on.
I agree, and in some instances, I think these people feel entitled and aren't aware they're comments are offensive. I just feel bad for the hubber when I see it.
I agree, completely. I just saw somebody leave a rude (in my opinion) comment on the page of someone who I happen to like and I was compelled to put my two cents in, but I know it's not my place and she handled it graciously herself... but more or le
What a fabulous answer! I agree, if we don't care for a hub we can simply change the channel. I just saw a 'higher up' call someone out on a hub and though the 'victim' handled it gracefully; I very much wanted to add my 2-cents. Rude=Unnecessary!
A "HIGHER-UP?".".Splain to me, Lucy". Who or what is a "Higher-up?" Looks like you and I need to talk, Cat. We are all EQUAL. I simply don't acknowledge, "Higher-up,", unless you mean that someone is standing on a ladder, a roof or a treetop!
That's an excellent answer and yes, my family/friends despise that I am always 'correcting them', though I try to refrain, here. I've seen rude remarks made on 'regular' hubs and I think the point may be valid, but the approach stinks!
I agree totally, that this is best manner in which to handle it.
Ha ha... the 'Thumper Rule', I love it! I agree, it's their work and they must think enough of it to publish it; what's the need for being rude?
When something crosses the line... I will flag it and that's sufficient, in my opinion. Thanks!
I appreciate that strategy and yes, I think typos, grammatical errors or friendly suggestions are fine. Debate or simply rude remarks on a non-offensive hub I think is just out of line. In the right place and time; controversy or debate can be fun :D
Well that certainly is an answer! I understand what you're saying. We all have our theories and reasoning. I guess my thoughts are; if you have something 'not so positive to say' say it in the most possibly positive way. I've seen some people be rude
Yes, but see Eric, you're a gentlemen and you mustn't have come off offensive. Also, if you found it that important to mention, I'll assume it was in need of mentioning :D
I just saw this happen to someone else and I had to refrain from speaking up!
I absolutely understand your point and to be honest, I'm all for 'constructive' criticism on my hubs. I think it's all a matter of 'how' you say it, rather than 'what' you say. Good point and thank you!
I think there's a big difference between healthy debating over a hub topic and just simply leaving a rude comment. I have to admit... I'm a little afraid to hit that down button... I usually just push the back arrow instead :D
