LOL! Crazy, where is the hubpages staff

    lol.... I'm literally laughing out loud at the ridiculousness. People go through these lengths just to bash me. HAHAHA, like honestly I'm laughing. Since I posted a forum on my encounter with comment trolls someone left another comment on my poem. I replied this time and after I replied, they were basically speechless and they tried to engage in a troll-fest which was quickly denied. Now look, (Removed link) this profile is directed at me in an attempt to troll. Lol! That's why I'm laughing, somebody going through these lengths just to get someone who could care less mad. Anyways I know hubpages stores Ip addresses so I think the staff should find out the actual user of this hubber and ban them.

        Nunavut is a territory of Canada, separated from the NorthWest Territories about 15 years ago I think.
        But why would anyone think this is a bashing of some kind?

      Oh my...

      1. You should probably write directly to the staff... although it will surely get less attention that bringing it to the forums.
      2. They didn't violate TOS as far as I can tell.
      3. They show a tremendous amount of creativity. Kudos to them. Isn't that what creative writing is about?

      LOL

      When someone posts a comment on your Hub, that person's IP address is listed at the bottom, to the right where you approve or deny the comment.  With the IP address, you can find the ISP (Internet Service Provider) in ten seconds and report them for spam to their ISP.

    The best way to reach the staff is by email.
    The best way to encourage trolls is to link to them, and post strenuous public emotional reactions -- that way they know you are a really satisfying person to troll,

    1. MelissaBarrett profile image60
      MelissaBarrettposted 4 years agoin reply to this

      Actually, it's not legit.

      You have absolutely no right to ask that someone else's work be banned. You call it trolling, but it's actually just parody. Parody is a valid form of creative writing.

      I, for one, would be really upset if HP decided to ban someone for parody... especially since they have a creative writing category for it.

      (A category that would likely make passing QAP a little easier, if correctly used, just sayin')

          MelissaBarrettposted 4 years agoin reply to this

          For writing parody?

          Because you don't like his writing? 

          So if someone doesn't approve of what you write, you should be banned too?

              I believe you the person who is writing the parody might agree with you. It might possibly be why he is doing it.

    jansharesposted 4 years ago

    It's a shame you're having to go through this, poetic, but your bringing attention to this "hubber/troll" has made the situation worse. You have given said hubber/troll exactly what he wants. You seem to laugh it off and say it rolls off your back but it is clearly bothering you, which is why you want the person banned.

    You already have all the controls you need to control the situation: setting your comments on your hubs and deleting any offensive comments; ignoring said hubber/troll; ceasing to post any more forums about the situation; and writing a letter of complaint if you feel you are being bullied or harrassed. Let HP handle it and let it go.

    I tend to agree with psycheskinner about how your reactions have satisfied the intentions of the troll - - to get a rise out of you - - and you keep feeding into it. I also tend to agree with MelissaBarrett regarding the shrewd use of parody to mess with you. Unfortunately, it may be hard to ban the hubber/troll if you can't prove that the format used is to insult or make fun of you. You probably should have just sent the profile link in a letter to HP. Instead, what you've done is increase the said troll's traffic. smile We all love to see a car wreck and went to visit and read the hubs in question.

    Lastly, poetic, keep working on the quality of your writing, particularly punctuation and grammar. Don't continue to give the trolls your Achille's heel. Some people are just mean and irritated by the weaknesses of others and will continue to exploit for fun if you let them. I wish you peace.

    I am curious, as to how did you discover they had done  this less than 49 mins. after they joined up as that id/profile? 

    A person who is trolling a person or a site usually seeks a lot of attention in forums etc. did they make you aware of it in a comment or something?

          He doesn't. Just like he doesn't see what made him a target in the first place...

          Some would see this whole thing as a learning moment... For some, their lives seem to be full of these learning moments... yet they seem to be confused as to the reason why it keeps happening over and over.

          I'll wager something like this has happened before... and I'll wager something like this will happen again.

              Actually I said it was Parody. Very well done parody. Quite a bit more creative than any coughed up doggerel. Look parody up, it always has a target.

              Parody takes the obvious flaws of the target and emphasizes them for comedic effect. No obvious flaws and parody won't work. Think about it smile

              But yes, it was funny as all hell... so I guess it's comedy too.

                  And no, comedy and parody aren't the same thing. As a creative writer who is just oozing talent... you should know that... right?

                  And there isn't a person on the forums who has read anything I've posted who doesn't know my true colors...
