          One doesn't have to agree with thecounterpunch in order to be turned off by the way you've conducted yourself.  Ad hominem attacks are no way to win friends or influence people.

            I apologize but some people's complete disregard for reality just pisses me off. Also He brought up his ridiculous theories in a forum that I started to see who hubs about politics... that really annoys me.

              Pauldeeds is one of the people who runs hubpages. If you're unable to decode the advice he just gave you, let me know, and I'll translate it into terms you can understand.

                Oh gosh ms.Isabella could you please? Although, are you sure you could stoop far enough down to my intelligence level to do so? Oh and one last question... I'm confused, is it wrong for everyone to insult others in forums or just me? I ask this because you seem to have to problem insulting me in this forum....

                P.s. I know that pauldeeds helps run hubpages and in fact he has been helpful in answering my questions.

    Create well-written hubs which people want to read, leave intelligent comments on other's hubs. Contribute in the forums.  Asking straight out is considered bad form to a lot of hubbers

      College politico, hope you got more fans ! As for me I'm not especially looking to please any one and get fans, though I thank all my current 86 fans to have done so. I'm not writing for money on my hubs some people know why.

    I'm not sure I could stoop to that extent, but if it means you'll be quiet for awhile, I'd be willing to give it the old college try.You've been asked to stop this several times by several people now - you're either socially inept or you're just rude. Stop making excuses for why you've been so obnoxious, and just stop being so obnoxious.

      Congradulations... through insulting me on this forum you have taught me not to insult people on forums.

  7. Mark Knowles profile image59
    Mark Knowlesposted 10 years ago

    I'm going with socially inept. I find that a lot in online conversations. There is no face to face, so the person in question feels they can say anything they like. The funny thing is, he started this thread  to get advice on getting more fans and then allows it to turn into this. Personally, this is my last response to one of these threads. If I want a political argument, there are any number of misinformed morons where I live to "discuss," the subject with.

    Back on the track of the thread - try not behaving in this fashion - that would certainly turn me into one of your biggest fans. big_smile

        Weird... I just turned in my final paper for intro to poetry the other day. Maybe I'll make a hub out of it...

    I am new here. I have been reading this back and forth crap betwn hub members for a couple of days now and to me, it is just ridiculous. I come here to get advice and learn, and not on how to be nasty to others. Perhaps we should have a seperate forum for people who want to argue back and forth and insult each other, but it really does not belong here. Just my opinion and not taking any sides, but lets keep the hub forum for what it is supposed to be used for, not to be bitter and nasty.  Come on guys it's Christmas what the heck, just kiss and make up and call it a day!

      And where staff could relocate any thread that degenerates into a debacle. Yes, it's been suggested a few times smile

      Going back to the original question, the best fans to acquire are those who discover you and genuinely enjoy your content. Sometimes you'll get a new fan and when you check his/her hubtivity you find that on the same day s/he's joined 50 or more fan clubs. How much use is that?

    To all of you that gave some adive on how to get some fans...thanks!  I am going to take some of that advise right this second!

    I looked up Advice on getting more fans.

    I learned I was probably mistaken to join some of the Fan Clubs?  Yes, or No???

    Noticing that people can be contacted personally:  Could messages to someone, such as to this person about insulting Counterpunch (although I missed this, boohoo) have not been delivered in a more personal way?

    The avalanche against this person could scare a new person away.

    I'm new, I'm learning.  Good luck to you all.

    It's nice to know Paul Deeds helps run Hub Pages.  Hi, Paul.  Are there other important people I should know about?

    Bye for now.  I'm Betty Jo
