I'm so excited! I've always fancied myself to be funny, but I hadn't gotten any funny votes in my 3 weeks here - probably because I was writing on more serious topics for the most part. But I got a funny vote on my scariest episodes of Doctor Who Hub! And now I feel legitimately funny... does that mean that my qualifications for self-fulfillment are sad, considering I'm basing my writing funny-ness on HubPages votes?
Not at all I mostly do tutorials and informative posts. One day I decided to try my hand at some snarky, sarcastic kind of humor with one of my hubs and I was thrilled to get "legit" funny votes. I also received several comments on the hub that were approving.
A lot of people are pistols and will vote a serious hub "funny" if they disagree with your stance on something etc. That little passive aggressive dig makes them feel better or something. I was pretty stoked when I got my first several legit "funny" votes
Now I have to go read that hub. I am a real Dr Who fan.

Why do people vote "funny" on hubs that are not intended to be humorous?I've noticed this on the hubs of several people over time and I have wondered, If someone disagrees, why not say what you have to say to the hubber via comment or through contact rather than vote something that is...
