I was curious enough about Bubblews based on what I was reading here in the Forum recently to give it a try. I've been there a week. (I find it to be fun, although I don't take that whole platform very seriously.) Last night, however, some wacko found and responded to a Post I made about Disney. Now, apparently I and everyone else who patronizes them are going to Hell!
This woman stated her opinion in the comment section, which is welcomed. But then she felt the need to continue with several other lengthy comments that verbally attacked me. Unlike HubPages, I don't see anything in their ToS that prohibit that kind of behavior. I believe the best response at this point is no response at all. She's clearly looking for confrontation. How would you handle her?
Glenda, on Bubblews you have the option to delete any comment on your articles. That's what I would do for comments containing personal attacks.
That is what I would do. If you have a way to block future comments I would do that too. Some people are wacked and just have no manners! LOL.
Ignore her, and let her rant away. Bubblews pays, in part, on comments. Every comment she leaves, no matter how crazy it is, is money in your Bank.
Here here, Lisa. Ignoring these rat's arses is the best retaliation. People
like her (you really don't know who you're dealing with) live to attack and
then relish in your angst and/or pain. Disappoint her in the worst way--ingnore.
Don't feed the animals.
Options: delete, flag, ignore or humor. I suppose I would flag inappropriate comments like that so Bubblews has someone take a look. Then, they can take whatever action they want now or in the future. My guess would be that person will get flagged by others if they behave that way. Sorry that happened on one of your posts.
I just remembered that Bubblews said something on a post about if spammers' comments got flagged 5 times, their accounts would be deleted. Bubblews does check each time a comment gets flagged. Anyway, I would hope the same action would be taken on members who are mean spirited on the site.
You can delete her comment, but I'd suggest you also report it. It's not spam, but it's against the TOS (not in so many words) to flame people. Deleting her comment will not delete the penny you got from it.
