But only for posts made in 2014. It is up to you.
[I may add to this post in the next three hours. Or not.]
Update: I just unfollwed 2 people for repeated negative-comment forum posts.
Final update: I have failed. I have succeeded. I have been the best that I can be. I will be the best I can be. Happy 2014, all.
Hmm...Sending positive vibes for the new Year! lol Law of attraction states put a smile on and you will get one back! lol You must not be to negative if I'm here. lol
was it just negativity? Or actual constructive critisism? I had someone leave a really shitty comment that was a guest user. Take it all with a grain of salt and keep on keeping on!
Just DELETE the negative and hateful comments. Negative comments have NO PLACE in HubPages either from hubbers(very few and far between) and guests. Some people have to make themselves heard and lead such miserable lives that they go into ATTACK MODE.
It all boils down to HATRED and JEALOUSY!
I was a site steward on Helium for a while. I was very active on the forums there, and one day I joined a discussion about a problematic feature of the site and how it could be improved.
I got a snarky email from Helium saying that as a site steward, I wasn't allowed to voice any criticism of Helium. My job was to reassure everyone of how great the site was.
Being "positive" can so easily turn into fawning and brown-nosing. I think it's healthy if people voice their concerns and disappointments. In the old days, HubPages used to keep a very close eye on those discussions and the site was improved in many ways as a result.
Well, lots of people like to see the reactions they can cause by their comments, so this is nothing new. Everyone does it to one extent or another. Some are malicious, others not. Some of the negative comments are obviously for the sake of negativity, whilst others actually make sense. The angrier people get over them, the better some people feel, so no point in taking it seriously.
Take nothing personally! It is always someone else's issue! They should own it! lol
Why would you unfollow someone for having an opinion, or thought that is different from your own?
Who said I did? I don't. However, I would certainly un-follow someone who makes unfounded accusations; whether against me or anyone else. Fortunately, those are few and far between.
Didn't you just say in your original post that you unfollowed two people?
Yep. And in both cases, they were repeatedly insulting other people. Note I said other people, I wasn't even the one being insulted. In short, I run away from negative people.
That's unfair. I don't condone nasty and degrading comments, but people should be able to speak their mind (within reason).
Good on you Marisa, sounds like they couldn't accept constructive criticism, which is the best way to improve anything!
I'm in a terrible mood. Someone tried to kill my dog. I hope I didn't offend anyone today
Yes, we treated her and she's now fine. Someone fed her poison. It has to be because we don't set poison there in the country because all the animals have to roam free. It was deliberate and I know which neighbor did it. Thanks for asking
This is Jamaica, nothing will come of it. If they had probably tied up the dog and beat it then I could have gotten them arrested but they'll just deny they had anything to do with what happened.
I'm really sorry to hear that. People like that will do it again if they are not stopped. I think you should file a complaint anyway so that at least there is a record if it happens to someone else, too. Can you sue them for the Vet expenses?
Well...speaking of negativity....that is ONE NASTY, MEAN, SICK NEIGHBOR!! Anyone who could try to harm any animal......especially someone's domestic pet (member of their family!) has serious issues. Poor baby.......Hope she is OK. She needs lots of hugs. That must have been a frightening ordeal for all of you.
Yes, most of my neighbors are. I really hate my neighborhood. I know that's a mean thing to say but when they aren't stealing from your property they are devising ways to make you suffer. Argh!
As Mark Twain once said: "In religion and politics, people's beliefs and convictions are in almost every case gotten at second-hand, and without examination."
Just thought I would toss that in ....

What do people is the best way to respond to negative comments which offer no constructive criticism or feedback?)

What's your take on jealousy among hubbers on Hubpages?I published a hub a few days ago. The hubscore started at 66 and has been doing great. Two nights ago the hub went to 91. A hubber left a comment on the hub - "How did you get that many followers?". The hubber did not say anything...

Do you leave negative comments from readers on your articles?I delete spam but have left comments when a person doesn't agree with me. However, I have noticed I seem to be in the minority on this because when I've left a comment disagreeing with a person (this is not just on HubPages but on blogs...

Do you approve negative comments that readers make about your hubs?It's great to have readers compliment your hubs, brag on you for a job well done,but what those about those readers that disagree with you on what you've written written or have less than constructive criticism about your writing...

Why do people post negative comments?I have had a few people, mainly those who are not hubbers but outsiders who ran across my articles, who have left pretty mean comments calling me a "loser" and such. I just read a hub by a young person and fellow hubbers left some pretty negative...

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...
