    I love going to the forums and seeing whats trending and learning from others, but just within the last 3-4 days I've come across so many negative questions or forums. Where is seems like the person starting the thread just wants to slam Hubpages and berate anyone who tries to offer help. I know no site is perfect, but I absolutely love Hubpages and the people I meet, and its always been such a positive environment.

    People who hate hubpages, please don't stay. Negativity only spurns negativity. For people that need help, there are thousands of hubbers who are more than willing and capable to give you support and tips. Don't give up.

        Or at least, get banned, make five sockpupper accounts, get them banned, and then wander off to find some other source of amusement.

    NT, don't worry.  A lot of this negativity is someone with a dumb grudge against HP who has created numerous sock puppet accounts to antagonize the users.  In some cases, they've even stolen legitimate id's to do it.  Don't respond to them.  Eventually, the person will get bored and move on. 

    Or get arrested for cyber terrorism...lol
