I like the Forums I really do but as I logged on tonight looking for something decent to reply to all I see is the same crap going back a week. Like Lgalis post Any words you always spell wrong.
Why on earth is this post still on the front page of the forum, has Hubpages become that bad, Eric G I think my friend you deff had a point earlier today.
So are you all happy to have a hubber who was banned from Adsense asking you can you spell ??? Jeeez like come on, is this what the forums of hubs has become.
Oh on a quick note, Candie I hope you had a great birthday and for all you hubbers, ignore those damn stupid hubs, let them just sink to the depths they belong !
It's because she replies to every single posting.
Yep and this lovely lady is deff in my friends cause like me nothing gets past her- note nothing gets past me !
Graf I have watched you and you are good too, you spot this crap as well and at least you ask damn sensible questions !
Thats why i like Marinealways forum posts, they are always different and thought provoking (though I hardly answer, past my iq level lol) put i enjoy reading responses
I agree BC. I like responding to questions where I can use my knowledge. There are few forums that promote interesting, educational discussions
I've sometimes felt the same. But I noticed what I would consider as interesting and educational postings and no one was commenting. They were rushing to others that seemed to juvenile.
Hi Cole, nice to see you back with some intelligent convo, but interesting and educational discussions, I just hope you aint caught using the drugs you are on
Was that sarcasm? Cuz I've never used drugs. Sorry if I can't tell sometimes. But anyways, I like using what I know and talking about things that interest me. I think that the forums like, "what's your favorite..." etc. can be fun, people participate because they want their opinion out there. But no one logs on to see others posts, they log on to see responses in reaction to their own thoughts. I like interesting better I guess just ignore the ones you feel are unnecessary, and participate in the ones that are important to you.
If it's still on the front page then other people must be enjoying it and participating in it. Even if Lgali replies to every post, someone else must be posting.
There are threads that I can't stand, that go on forever, but others must really love them, so the hub community has voted, and I just try to go with the flow.
Lol so most people can't spell, no Nelle it is there because she replies every night to about 20 of her own questions
LOL There is no rule prohibiting one from doing it, but I agree it sometimes gets slightly annoying.
I try to train myself to not react to those things that annoy me, I came to conclusion that this is the most efficient way of dealing with such things.
But heck, I am human too, and sometimes I DO REACT
Misha you are a damn good guy and when I think of Hubs you are deff up there. We just sit back and watch this crap fill the forums and I hear about how the forums used to be fun.
So Hubpages, so Maddie you were quick to ban me, what about all this useless crap like Lgali is posting, do we put up with it or what. Me, I am sick of logging on the Forums and reading pure crap, Eric G had a point and I am now asking Hubpages straight up are you just going to let Hubbers who Assense banned fill the Forums with totally stupid crap ?
I guess it's just not something that I get worked up over. I even participated in one of her threads earlier in the day.
Money? No one told me there was money involved in agreeing with BC!
the forums are nothing but crap anymore--nothing like they used to be and I know ther's several people who will disagree, but I don't care anymore.
Personally I believe that Lgali should be able to do as she pleases, as long as she's not hurting anybody else, I don't see any relevance between her being banned from Adsense and her ability to ask an interesting question.
Sure it's been dragging on and on a little, but then if she didn't respond somebody else would probably start a thread bitching about people that don't respond to their own threads.
People join HubPages every single day, to them that's not an old and annoying thread, but a thread that even new comers to the forums can participate in without technical knowledge of HubPages (or it's forum politics).
Is she really a "she"? I took from some hubs and comments that she could be a he in disquise.
Sometimes we all need a break from responding in detail and honestly LGali has grown on me. Yes some are juvenile, some are repetitive but all have enlightened , what one does not find amusing another just may isn't that what questioning and writing is all about? Learning something new no matter how silly it may sound makes the world go ground.
Well said, I guess I should have said that Lagali has grown on me too.
Lol so you are enlightened by can you spell, nice one AE lol
Alot of people pretend to be things that they aren't in their avatars. Each to his or her own. Lgali has always been very sweet towards me, and her adsense status is none of my business. And her threads are no worse or better than many others.
Wow.......... Is this such an interlectual example of??????
Within this entire thread it appears to be just BS personal attacks and a bottom of the bottle opinion of one who forgets to consider the last time that such a perspective provided us all with a sample of how sad it is when one self destructs & becomes abusive!
Why don't some of us bother in the forums?? Need I say more?
BC, I think you better recall the last time and stop here. Just a friendly advice
I totally agree with Badco's opinion. I've been purposely staying away from the forums because of the crap that I see posted.
Perhaps the problem isnt that people are starting boring pointless topics but that noone is starting interesting ones!! Presumably people only comment on the dull, stupid threads so much because there isnt anything better! BC, if you want to talk about something interesting, then you should start an interesting topic!
But and a big but, Adsense are not as stupid as you, they banned her or him !
I don't mind Lgali's questions, however there is no need to give a one word answer to every posting. Surely no one expects to get an answer when they post the word they can't spell...
When I post on a forum I don't expect an answer unless I have asked a specific question.
This is all I have to say ROFL Yet yer knickers out of a knot already!
Maybe hubpages should make Fridays silly ,whacky days!!mah that wouldnt work cuz of time zones ,on the other hand it would work, just the trivial stuff would be spread out a bit more.
It did kinda niggle Lgalis posts for a few days ,and then I relised its the Religious thread that can be so tedious in Hubtivity , like the song that never ends.....geeze man oh man ,and so many of the same. I bet even God gets bored.
Lgali is like Marine just different styles ,so least we have a choice between cell-phones for kids or enlightenment, legalise weed ,or first signs of divorce.
Variety works for me
Hey how was ya walk BC, the Cab Sav was alright!
Hey I've got an idea why not post lots of interesting threads then we can all be busy answering them instead of beeeeefin' here.
List of interesting thread ideas:
My goat ate through the fence and mowed down half my veggie garden.
How to pronounce my name.
Why bother to pronounce my name.
Wouldn't that be interesting for all?
just kidding guys... I agree with BC though about the forums being a total drag in the last few months
Lol totally agree my friend but my good friend Misha has my lips now sealed to any replies, hes deff a good guy !
Just curious, for us new hubbers, what DID the forums used to be like? Curious what's changed. I keep hearing how much better they used to be. Less inane questions, what?
It was a laugh my friend but then some loser enticed good writers away from the site to the tree of losers and the fun went, I intend to break that tree or make it just a boring place to be which is why I left it, like its owner and puppet admin totally boring, lol, hubs will be just so good without you
You can go back and look at old threads.
You crack me up, Eaglekiwi!
sorry, y'know when we were kids my dad hated us saying 'what'!! and also corrected us saying ,thats how a lazy mind answers...so im going thru late rebellion bless the dads huh
I just popped in and haven't a clue as to what's going on...But I agree with BC.....and I just wanted to up my post count...thanks for listening.
Thanks Blue I just want hubs to be what it used to be, I want our buddy Candie to have a great Birthday, I want our friend Poet to get back online,I want Randy Behavior to be happy, I want Cindy to just be Cindy and I want my friend Blue to just talk about boobs.
I love you man and I love Hubs but since that tree shit kicked off I have lost Naz, a good friend is but a mere puppet but you kiddo are still the groving with Mr Blue, we gotta sort it mate because if we dont I swear I will take the sodding Tree down !
Wish there could be a rule banning the stupid game threads. Last one to say 'I win', wins nothing! Seriously what's the point in last one to post is the winner.
You're not winning anything. So why are there 400 million posts on that thread?
Well, it's more healthy (less risk of carpal tunnel injury) than finding out if athiests are boring.
Hey I've only been here a couple of weeks and I'm already wondering, "How long can a dumbazz game like 'Last one to post wins' go on"? How many times must I see "A new word game with a twist this time" posted?
LOL Not that I get all excited about those too, but some others obviously do, so I think live and let others live
I even do post sometimes, when I am bored. I guess it's the main reason people post on such threads, and some of us get bored more often then others

This forum has no ongoing moderation, so people are likely to emerge into passive-aggressive banter, or attack or defense mode. Without intervention these behaviors are rather common, if not typical to the human being.

It looks like a fourth of my feed lately is comprised of new people wanting the rest of us to tell them how to write. All day I get request after request for help on passing the Quality Assessment. I mean Really? Many of your requests are just one step above being a jumble of mis-spelled words...

I am reviled yet my forums create all kinds of participation. I like and I am not going anywhere!There are some who indicated a boycott to not speak ever on what I write. They are writers heretics. I bless them and invite them to stay away. This is not written for you.Writers here are often...

For the second time in less than a week, I just spent time opening "questions" that aren't questions, but nonsensical "garbage"--bits of a paragraph copies from somewhere and dumped into HP. In each case, I flagged them for HP, and they will likely disappear soon. But they harm...

As an out gay man, I'd like to address a topic that I've noticed in recent months that's extremely disturbing. Specifically, I'm talking about forum posts that are nothing more than homophobic sentiments, disguised in the form of a question. I'm not going to link to these posts because I...

I have a request, and it comes at the price of sounding as if I am approving of totalitarian censorship. Since I started on Hubpages, I have frequently visited the forums in hopes of not only learning, but growing as a writer. I have enjoyed lively conversation and seen the diverse...
