Curious Question

    So I realized, while browsing the HubPages  "answers" forums that one user frequently posts "questions" in the Islamic section. Looking through, it is clearly him using the answers forum to purposely attack the religion of Islam and anyone trying to genuinely answer his so-called question.

    Although TOS doesn't specifically mention religion, it does speak against hatred Hubs. I assume this extends to the answers forum as well.

    I am considering reporting him but not sure if anything will actually be done. But his questions are not to sincerely learn the correct truth about Islam but to be used as a tool to lash out with falsehoods and vile, hatred toward Muslims and Islam. I would post an answer to his posted questions, but I know he would bypass it as a way to continue disrespectful comments. After all, who is the bigger fool? The fool himself or the one arguing with the fool?

      HubPages does take hate speech seriously.   Why not try it and see?   You cannot be penalised for reporting him and it is the right thing to do.

    Report him.    Provide links to forum or Q &A they are posting in.  A human will look at it and decide what to do.

    He's truly a one note wonder. All his questions are about religion, and they all have an agenda. If you think what he's posting violates the TOS, report him.

    The questions he asks are provocatively rhetorical, as evidenced by his responses.  It would be better if this writer launched a forum thread stating his own views on the issues he raises, allowing others to agree, challenge or question them.  You are right not to get drawn into his web.

      Sure, Linda.....any hubber may "report" another for whatever they feel is a valid reason that may be of concern to staff.  If staff deems the threads inappropriate, hateful or simply something they will not allow on HP.....they will take necessary action.
      Another option would be to completely ignore this particular not read his questions, comments or forums....don't get involved. 
      You will find that the type of person you mention (and I don't know WHO you are referring to)  will create new ways to continue to do whatever it is they do. Know what I mean?
      From what I understand (via more seasoned hubbers) trouble makers have been known to re-appear repeatedly, using new names and profiles...having had dozens of HP accounts. 
      I hope you try to just avoid what upsets you.  There is more than enough positive going on at HP to focus on......Peace, Paula

        True, this hubber could just create a new account. I went back to look again and noticed the date stamp. It has been quite awhile, so I will just ignore for now. It is just irritating when people attack and disrespect others and their beliefs. It is one thing to disagree with one's belief, but do so respectfully. I have friends from all religions and cultures so I am one of the lucky few in this world to see the beautiful diversity of the world. I celebrate and respect this diversity and perhaps just get irritated when someone persecutes another just because they have a different view or belief than theirs...especially when to point is to start a campaign of discrimination.

        Thanks to everyone for your imput. big_smile

    It is difficult to advise when we cannot read the material in question. Can you describe how to get to a link?
