    HubPages' staffs seem reluctant to come to the forums.

    "Request to HP STAFF to address the RS Ads Issue"

    http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/114217#post2430205



    Silence is Golden. . .

    The "Related Seaches" Scandal continues...

    TPTB?

    Is that Terror Ports of the Tetra Babinsacs?

    This is TPTB. . .


    "Of course, Simone's hints earlier in this thread (that the site is struggling to find the money for QAP) might have been misleading. Those ads might be funding the staff's taste in fast cars. Then I could get outraged and envious at the same time."

    (I know the troll will ask further clarifications. Mr. Will Apse, er, the CEO & God of 'Terror Ports of the Tetra Babinsacs, continue'. Lol.)

      I am sorry to be so bothersome but it is so important that I speak to the person with the Tetra Babinsacs.

      Could you help me?

        This is why you're only a lowly 94.

              The true God of the Tetra Babinsacs ain't afraid of no thing. He certainly ain't afraid of no girl.

              By the way, my low score seems to pique your interest in ways that I do not understand.

                lol... you don't have a low score. It's just 4 pts lower than mine thereby being the only thing I have to cruelly mock you with.

    "I do not like HP using key words from my hubs this way....I feel my name is on the article and I do not want to be associated with the deceptive practice. It would annoy me as a reader to be sent on this wild goose chase.

    So thanks for starting the thread on our behalf......hopefully, HP is thinking about the impact of the "related searches' and will answer in their own time. Sometimes a little noise is a necessity for change."

    "The only reason left to write on HP, is that it is a powerful platform and can get you views.

    Well, it is a lot less powerful than it used to be.

    To be honest, Blogspot is just as good.

    Major difference is, you don't need to split earnings.

    And no-one puts unrelated RS links on your posts to lure visitors away."

      It is happening more quickly than I imagined.

      This thread is obviously exerting an immense evolutionary pressure on this previously lifeless rock.

      Sheer desperation is forcing it to bend the laws of God and Science and Cooking.

        I like soup.

          An uncontroversial preference.

          But what is worrying me is that the rock is gone.

          Brought to life in a pointless thread, driven crazy by boredom and now running wild who knows where?

          We bear a heavy responsibility...

    Maybe if you posted smaller rocks... say a pebble maybe, our burdens would be lighter... you wouldn't have thought of that though, being a 94.

    I don't understand this thread at all.

    ...but "Tetra Babinsacs" would be a FABULOUS name for a band.

    1. Will Apse profile image91
      Will Apseposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      I can see clearly now. This is not the true God of the Tetra Babinsacs. It is the false god of the Uno Babinsac.

      Disappointing....
