In response to a challenge from Hubber Buildreps I wrote my latest hub. He challenged my existence as a true hubber, just because it has been a while since I posted. I wrote the post that he, and one other person requested and put the link to my post in his comments. What does he do but delete my latest comments.
We have a disagreement, which even reasonable people can have, but not allowing open debate seems a bit inane on his part. I am a bit frustrated, because in spite of our differences on the topic we were discussing I was trying to help him solve a problem.
I doubt anyone else will be interested, but the community here as a whole should be since stifling open debate is not good or fair.
I don't know what you wrote in your comment, but this is the statement from HP:
"Comments are not for promoting your Hubs or other sites." If you put a link to your Hub in a comment, most Hubbers won't approve the comment.
I read your new Hub, by the way. It sounds like your father is very successful on Bubblews if he is consistently earning $25 a day. Good for him!
This reply is wrong and should be treated as such.
"rollover". Do not reject this notion. Going against this will hurt you. I have never met or heard from a hubber that objects to your methods. Only Writer Fox types that oppose and viscerally react to the slightest negative on his boss.
HSanAlim - The advice I am giving you is advice I'd give to anyone about any conflict in comments, not about Bubblews specifically, because I am another ex-writer from there. I won't work there anymore bec the time investment is too steep for me. I waited to get paid once and then I quit writing there. So with that aside, this advice is truly generic in content and not specific to Bubblews.
Regarding doubting your existence:
Given the number of hubs you have published, your very existence on HP should not be called into question. Regardless of their conversation about Bubblews payment policies, their speculation as to your identity and your offer of proof in their comments and on a separate hub, I would not put a lot of effort into proving who I was when your hubs speak for themselves. Even if a reader heard by word of mouth that you either were not a real person (which is what they were implying, that you stole HSanAlim acct because your content differs from earlier hubs) - don't listen to that garbage! You explained why your HP content was varied - because there are 3 or 4 of you writing on it (mother, daughters and you), so the voice of your hubs will naturally be different. Their accusations against you are bullying and you should never respond to bullying because it can always escalate, Whomever hollers the loudest gets the most attention and right now they are getting the attention with their accusation hubs. I would report bullying activity to HP, but that is me. You can do that or Let it go. Either keep or delete your verification hub as you please. As a stand alone hub, it shows no connection to the conversation you intended it to and is confusing to a new reader because they are not privy to any of the convo or comments of the hubs you are responding to (unless you copy paste them into your hub for reference). But, I would let it go, You said your peace, you made your point, when you back down, they will find someone else to pick on and you will be just a memory. If you like, in a few days, when it quiets down, if I were you, I'd delete the verification hub.. It doesn't enhance your other hubs and leaves you open to more comments from people who happen along your hub because they clicked your name in the comments of their hub, thereby coming after you again.
This is how bullying starts. With accusations. Don't let it continue by giving them a place to keep coming after you. Flag, report, and keep writing quality hubs. Good luck to you.
While debate is fine, especially if it has to do with the topic of the hub, I generally delete comments with links. I would rather my readers not leave my site.
Had my best performing hub stolen through a link in comments. I always delete them. Some of the comments are delightful and it just kills me to delete them.
I delete ALL and EVERY comment with a link. Doesn't matter who posted it - if it has a link it is gone.
Apart from my Christmas hub I have not published a new hub for quite some time either. But I'm spending a lot of time making alterations to my existing ones, so am still active on here. How often you publish is up to you and you should not criticized for it.
Why is it anybody's business what you do on this site? I wouldn't have wasted my time justifying myself. You are a good writer who has contributed much to HP, and that is all you need to know. People should mind their own business!

I am not looking to name names here as this happens quite a lot on Hubpages, but can someone please clarify whether or not it is against the rules for a Hubber to come to your hub, leave a comment and then include a link to one of their own hubs as a part of that comment. I know it says under each...

Why would anyone delete a comment on their hub?If I deleted a comment on one of my hubs, I would figure I am not good at dealing with people who might disagree with me. People can agree or disagree, it's a free world. If the comment was mean or nasty, well I'm not the one looking bad,...

Do you delete hub comments that are very generic if it appears the commenter hasn't read the hub?I notice my more popular hubs will get comments left that are just generic like "this was great thanks". I have started deleting these comments because they don't add anything meaningful...

Do you delete useless negative comments?I have seen this happen a few times (on my own hubs too) where people write senseless negative comments such as "this is horrible" without any real feedback or reasons why they dislike the article. I understand that no hub will please everyone, but...

I know that it is against HP rules for someone to place a link in a comment of a hub, but is it okay for someone to place a link in a comment when answering a question, even if it directs people back to their hub? Also, it seems to be okay to place links in the forums' comments, as the link...

Do you think it is important to comment on a hub if you have read it?I've read that some hubber's read hubs but do not leave comments. On person said be assured I read your hubs even when I don't comment. I don't get it. I think it is courtesy to comment if you read someone's...
