Do you believe Newbies who have Not Written rankable hubs.(75+ H/S) .......
should have the ability to post...Irrelevant or Inflameable threads in the forums?
Hmmm. Is that me? My hub is only 3 weeks old and me hub score is 88 and my own score is 87. Why would you not beleive a newbie?
I don't think long-standing members with high ranking hubs should have those posting abilities either.
I like relache's answer. I think threads should be relevant to the topics of which they're listed under. Threads initiated so the OP has a position from which to 'preach', whether it be religious or a viewpoint of which they will not tolerate any posts contrary to their own, are pointless. Who wants to post on a thread where the OP says everyone is wrong unless he is agreed with? There are a few there everyday. It gets old. One even has stated he does it to make others mad.
This question is being asked as many of us question the use of 'sock puppets' (secondary accounts) and Trolls (flamers) to manipulate content within the forums. Many are used to create disharmony within the religious forums and now it seems HP have been targeted by Islamist trolls determined to jam their perspective down everyone's throats.
Most using sock puppets don't use those identities to be objectionable in any respect. However, the problem has been for some reason an acceptible one and on that basis on any given day at least 1 Troll works the forums. When you respond to their inflamable posts... they will report you to the moderators to attempt to have you banned. This single problem has upset many good writers here many of whom have left the site.
Perhaps the problem could be researched and written about.... I have just received a week ban for asking a troll with a score of 29, why they are swamping the forums with Islamic rantings... when they could become more interesting if they talked, posted or wrote about non religious issues or cooking etc. The game... Troll Slanders Christianity - PD responds - Troll complains - Moderators Ban PD.
What is the real value of such action? The troll wins and gains the knowledge that he/she can get away with the BS and/or create as many other trolls to duplicate the problem and have banned anyone that stands in their way.
Why support Trolls on a good site? Perhaps the trolls are actually senior members or someone with a vested interest in the site? Why are they even here? Why not be more transparent HP? There are lots of questions to ask.
And This is not a sour grapes question/post.
Thanks for taking the time to answer this ..... let's see who thinks negative trolls that don't contribute should be given the same opportunities as positive hubbers that help provide kudos and income to this site.???
I've never come across such "trolls", as you put it.
Though I have noticed, any religious hub or question gets marked down -sometimes several times, and the reason seems to be merely that it is religion. And now, as you point out Christian based.
Is there anything I can do to get such a vicious slur removed?
I agree with you PD. While I no longer get involved in forum debates, I do still read some forum posts and it always seems to be the sock puppets/trolls who get off scott free and the "real" hubbers who are penalized when there's conflict. This obviously causes resentment.
There's definitely something fundamentally wrong with the way these incidents are assessed and a review of the policy is long overdue.
No I emphatically DON'T. I totally agree with your premise regarding newbies writing a certain number of hubs before posting in the forums, PD. I feel that NO HUBBER should be allowed to post in the forums unless HE/SHE has at least 50 featured and rankable hubs. You are correct. This rule should be instituted by the HubPages Team. There are hubbers who create accounts just to stir foment and to create discord in the forums.

Why do atheists, being so logically and rationally minded, insist on going into obvious christian forms and mocking, insulting, and demeaning those who claim God? Why not start your own topics and engage amongst yourselves? Or is scoffing your sole purpose. Jesus warned us about you. 2000 years...

I have noticed a few questions asked by newbies that have been asked before and so many times it is probably impossible to count. I have noticed comments of annoyance at the same questions being asked yet again. I am sure at some point I will have been here long enough to get every bit as annoyed.I...

There seems to have been an unusually large number of forum posts by one or more individuals for the purpose of upsetting staff and/ or Hubpage members. With forum troll behaviors, it's best to read that post and then move on without responding. Don't feed the trolls.

I am new here so it's possible this has been suggested before. How about a debate forum, separate from the other forums, where contentious topics can be debated? So, if people wanted to discuss, say, a philosophical topic in the Religion forum and someone jumped in and started debating,...
