    The amount of bad vibes and paranoia in the forums lately are about to slop over the top of my gumboots and stain my socks.

    Here's 3 rules for enjoying hubpages:

    1. Write good hubs.
    2. Take part in forums
    3. Ignore the trolls
    4. Don't even look at numbers or measurements of any kind.

    cheers,
    Eric G.

      Eric absolutely spot on. Although I tend to pick my forums very very carefully and don't get too involved.

    It's easy and tempting to participate in an ever escalating shitfight over some minor issue. In my view, it's better to save one's energy and talents for the battles that matter.

      I agree with you Eric, Its been a year since I joined Hubpages, although I have not been too active in producing hubs I have maintained my hubscore through interactive ways. I haven't come across such remarks too often thankfully. But nevertheless I aspire to explore my writing through this wonderful channel & make some good frnds all the while smile

    By Hubpages standards I'm still a newby and luckily haven't had sniping on the forums although I have had some strange comments left on my hubs, but then, some of my hubs are strange.

    Some banter is fun; that's one purpose of forums.  Some people seem to live in the forums trying to stir things up as much a possible.  I try not to get involved with personal snipes; I try to stay to the issues.
    As far as hubs go; I suck at marketing.  I write what I feel and I guess at tag words after the story is written.  I love fiction writing and everyone knows that's a money making dead end. I haven't made a nickel and probably never will.  I could be a poster child for Internet Marketing Failures of America and I have no problem with that.
