Any Hubsters that you are uncertain of?

    I asked the question of accofranco, yesterday, probably shouldn't have singled him out. But as a relative newcomer only been here a bit short of a year...Took awhile to get writing, I really value other peoples opinions.
    For example you may think someone asks to many questions, or that they don't ring true.
    Sure I could go on their site and ask them.... But are they going to tell me the truth, Most people that have nothing to hide will, however for that small group that do, here is a chance to come out and say just what you think.
    That way everyone can put their side accross.

      It seems that you wish to have someone new singled out.

      Why the compelling need to dig up the dirt on people you don't know? It's not like you've got a legitimate grievance against anyone. The thread appears to be nothing more than trying to kick start controversy.

        Maybe I am not just an nice little artist from Ao Te Roa, perhaps I too have a darkside, anyone caring to investigate is welcome, No I am just trying to get into the psyche, of other  Hubbers, afterall you have to admit there are some weirdos out there........ Perhaps i don't like weirdos, perhaps I am just another nut case myself, or perhaps I want to get rid of the A>>>> H that is putting B>S on my site that is slowing down my Computer..... aaaah now thats the real one. Got nothing to hide don't fret, no one has named you have they?????

      mandybeau, hubbers are just people. We aren't here to sell you a car or a house or offer marriage.  When we signed up, there was no credit check, no requirement for squeaky-clean character references, no swear-on-a-bible to always tell the 100% truth about ourselves.   

      We're here to write, get feedback on what we write, and for some, cyber-socialize with other hubbers.  Period.

      It certainly does sound like your only purpose in starting these threads is to create controversy.  I suggest you write a hub instead that includes your concerns and then the ensuing controversy will be confined to its comments section.

        It is simply a forum post, I am asking the question, if no one wants to answer then so be it. However some have, so in the interests of freedom of speech, lets not go down the track  telling me why I am doing something, and for what reason,  I don't like unfair summisals, I think it is time to ask these questions, when you get someone able to post photos on your site, where you haven't even posted a photograph yourself, and the fact it was some dork carrying a hand gun, after it appeared he had just shot, a big red thing, I will say to HP that they  can cut me off but until that day  I am still going to ask. If not only for the sake it is time, that  someone did.  I am damned sure I am not backing down now.
        I don't suffer fools gladly and there are some people out there that don't deserve our consideration.
        Again My opinion. My tactics work I have accofranco as a fan, he is not upset about the recent Hub about him, so why should anyone else be.
        Anyone is welcome to say whatever they want about me.........or even write a Hub if they feel like boring the World.

          I have taken on board the idea to write a Hub, but felt the forum was more appropriate.

    I don't know where to begin.  HubPages holds many secrets.  You'll find organised crime here, gangsters, pirates, spammers, grifters, cheats and liars.  (And that's just the HubPages staff!) 

    Sometimes the name gives their true nature away - Darkside is self-explanatory. There are certainly some really scarry people here.  But I'm too afraid to name them.  But before you comment on anyone's Hubs or forum posts make sure they don't know where you live!  This is why my avatar hides my true likeness.

      Too funny.  I actually did receive a series of angry emails from a conspiracy theorist who believed that I was the head of an international gang of hubbers--of course, he only decided this after his hubs got moderated.

      And another fella insisted that HubPages is a front for Homeland Security.

      I'm surprised, really, that nobody's decided I'm the devil yet.

        I don't know about others but I personally don't have the urge to be "certain" about anybody(including myself). When I say myself I am not certain (when I should be in complete control of my mind and body) whether I will go to the gym today or do what I am supposed to do. And if at all I have to venture about others then even after being married for over 2 months there are new things myself and my husband are discovering about each other. In fact I find life fascinating when there is a little mystery to it. smile

    I'm uncertain about myself.  Just what am I doing here?  Is this some kind of alternate reality or something?  I find myself very mysterious and a little shifty, especially on alternate weekends and sometimes on Mondays.  They are usually very hard days. I am almost never in control of my mind or body on Mondays. wink

    I'd be VERY uncertain of me if I were you.
    I'm from a feared government Alphabet agency, and am compiling a huge database of everyone's online earnings. Agent AccoFranco is working on the "Date of Birth" project that is associated with this one. Thanks to everyone who responded.

    Some people have apparently earned well over a dollar with Adsense. Expect a knock on the door real soon.

    But I've said too much. Now we'll have to neutralise everyone who has read this forum post. Just leave your name and address in the comments below.
    On second thoughts - don't bother. We can easily find it if we don't have it already.

        When it's healthy it isn't paranoia - it's just being smart.  I've had a few comments on my hubs, though, that were by people who so wanted to show how "smart" they were they made up whole scenarios about "what I must really be".  The only thing was they were completely wrong and looked like nuts to me.   smile
