I just got this comment from someone who claims to be Lannie. I am rather confused why this person is so upset about my hub on "How to Annoy a Nail Technician.
Must of been an Vietnamese chic who doesn't realized that I'm also related with them asian folks.

I am an experienced nail tech and most of this article is verrry verry true, and extremely harsh. Your perspective really doesn't help the industry, not all nail salons are cut-throat bitches that go after you for every dime like you had described. When you manage your salon to have dignity and class, it will show through to the clients.
Children don't bother me, kids are kids; of course they are going to be a bit pesky for adults but its not like they will be there the entire day. If you care so much about the money.. as laughing mom points out, she doesn't get her nails done very often. Thats ZEROO cha-ching for the poor nail shops around her that may not be the way you described.
PLUS ... gel sets DO NOT take longer between fills... come on! is that what you tell your clients so they pay the extra 5 bucks to upgrade? oh wait, thats 5 bucks each fill... so 15-20 fills a year (extra 100 bucks out of each client) hmmmm... getting any richer?
The reason gel sets will need the same amount of time between each fill is because your natural nails still grow at the same rate underneath.. DUH. you even said yourself "You have to come every 2 weeks to have a fill-in to your nails. Why? Because your're natural nail grows leaving a gap between the acrylic and cuticle of your hands."
If gels were supposed to be so much better and healthier for your nails (which they certainly are) then shouldnt your natural nails grow quicker? if not at the same rate?
DONT SHIT ON THE HAND THAT FEEDS YOU.. is all im saying.
May's Response:...I'm sorry, I don't understand your English.
Someone tried to perform an exorcism on me in the comments of one of my hubs. It was hilarious, in retrospect, but at the time, sort of disturbing.
Absolutely. It was slightly unsettling.
Someone once said that I could not draw because I had ginger hair!!....
I was told that I was a stupid feminist who hated guys, that what I feel is important isn't, and I should focus on important world issues.
I have been getting some funny comments lately. I wonder how much time people actually take crafting these responses, or if these are just cut and paste jobs .
No crazies hang round me. I wonder why.
Consider yourself very lucky .
Not necessarily, and that is not a fair comment . I consider myself very normal thank you very much .
But how do we define "normal"? :)No, I personally think you might get some of the weird ones because you are so nice. That irritates some people.
I agree with you RGraf, what is normal. I have been getting some cut and paste things on my hubs these days, and this could happen to anyone.
World is not fair, at least not on human terms, neither am I. I don't insist on anything though, and what you say is your truth
I'm sure R. Blue, BC, and Blondepoet didn't leave you anything crazy to say! LOL
Because of your magical powers! LOL
Abra Kadabra!!!! You see a prawn, habba kazam, prawn now gone.!!! BP is experienced in the magic business.
Hey May, that girl could talk, what the hell was she going on about, I was lost pretty quickly, something about nail growth I think, lol.
I got a couple of favorites:
(1) 'I like to see ladyboy feet with wrinkled soles'
(2) 'I already stopped wearing tight underwears and im starting to get used to light cotton boxers... thats the thing mr vodoo i cant stop masturbating coz of the more sensual feeling of wearing this boxers..nevertheless my treatment is doing good....im going to see my derma this coming wednesday....and my itchyness is kinda lessened but definitely not gone.... i dont smoke and drink..i hate hanging out with girls dude but im not gay..i prefer watching vids(porn) on the net..lol'
The second one was from a nice guy so I feel bad laughing about it, but still, lol, it's kinda funny.
I got an invitation to join an international escort agency
I had some REALLY creepy, morbid, disturbingly dark poem. I can't remember what it was about now, but totally unrelated to whatever hub it was on. I read the first line and was like 'woahhhhhh'. Delete!
Wow people, and I thought that I had it bad. I also had some people dropping by my hub of "Rape Escape" saying something that Karma was going to bring hell to those who had done wrong. I was like, who's karma?
Also the truth for many others too .
I just got told that Chapter 9 of The Seeder (The Curse of Childhood) would get me hung in Wyoming.
Oh. Wait. That one WOULD get me hung in Wyoming!
Ah, well. Maybe I'll get a crazy to comment while this thread is still active. Once can always hope.
I have one Hub that seems to push buttons. They get blind to what the Hub says and make up what I "must be" or "must think" - or else point out all the things I didn't say about things that have nothing to do with the title of the Hub. Most of the comments on that Hub are just out-of-touch with what the Hub says, and mean. It's like being open-minded about people they don't like makes them blind and crazy. What power!
On another Hub someone said if a psychiatrist saw a few of my remarks s/he would diagnose me with a mental disorder. Maybe so!
This is from abigarl on my scarlet rose hub. Wherever you are abigarl hope you are on the sraight road now and that you have learnt to spell a few new words. Your name is a cross between Abagail and Garfield haha....

I am waiting for your mail at(firstname.lastname@example.org). Thanks for your cooperation.from email@example.com
That IS a weird one. All the rest of it aside, that's the first I've heard of HubPages being a "dating site".
Lol Lisa same here I thought is this person on drugs or what, as HP no way resembles a dating site.
All I'm wondering if abigirl is actually a skinny dude!
Oh yeah terrific point. I wonder if he flosses his teeth too? If you are going to be a complete scatter you got to have at least nice teeth.
BP, wow, abigarl_samuel is infected AND affected? I knew you had a powerful influence around here, but that is beyond the pale!
LMAO perhaps he is affected by his infection.
Wow BP that's a screamer! I have had some interesting responses to my The god of the bible is a psychopath hub, as you could well imagine! I should dig out the emails and list em!
I do get quite a few cut and paste nonsense replies, but so far not too many.
There are some strange ones hey Earnest. not like you and me of course!!!!
Nah... real died in the wool Ozies are a breed apart!
Irreverent maybe, but seldom irrelevant!
I had a gruop of people say they were going to lynch me. Had to delete the posts though, they didn't say it very nicely
I gotta read what you posted bgpappa... it must have been dynamite!
Thanks, but its a bit odd. It is a post about being a liberal. Got a bunch of views from a racist website. About five comments and numerous emails. Deleted them for profanity. Left a few up.
I guess it goes to show it does not take much to get them riled if they are ignorant as bat shit!
I got a threat once that said something like, the catholic church is going to torment you.
I got another one about god being an anvil that will smash athiest hammers???
"Should all the babies in one hospital converge into one building s that they can become a church because they were born on the same day and in the same place?"
I didn't understand that one at all.
As many of you know I have written on controversial things, to fun I have a plither of unique hubs. On one of them someone wrote, " God is going to send you straight to hell for writing about these things." Needless to say I was shocked and hurt but at the same time I realized you can't please everybody.
I have taken the position that if you are making them mad then you are doing something right.
Cindyvine trying to explain why all her lawnmowers that she had were stolen ones!!!
Someone once posted a comment on one of my poems saying I had "filled a void in [her] life" with it.
That was a tad extreme.
There's this comment where this guy, I think its EngM said I write like Holden Caulfield from the classic J.D. Salinger book, The Catcher In The Rye. I laughed so had It made tears drop out of my tears. But it made me really think, though - maybe there was some truth in what the guy said. I mean, I read that book ages ago, maybe it did influence me more than I care to admit. No kiddin.

Does it bother you when you put tons of work into a Hub and nobody comments on it?
by Laurel Rogers 11 years ago
What to do? This Hubber was 'sickened' by the content of my work, left a rude comment, and did not have the guts to email me, explaining what his/her point was.I know the topic of the Hub is quite controversial, but if he/she found it so terribly offensive, why on earth would he/she read it...

I have 36 views in 24 hours on one of my hubs 'aunt rosie a tragedy' there is a gap of 8 inches between the end of the hub and the comment box. I have not received 1 comment out of 36 views. It looks as though there is not a comment box present. How can I close this gap. Urgent Help Please. Graham.

Unless your article is on the first page of a niche site, the only way I have found to see how many comments are on them, is to actually click on the article. Now that there are comments on some niche sites that I have content on, I'm wondering how often those of you who have had them for awhile...
by Valerie Washington 11 years ago
Does it bother you that people visit your hubs and don't leave comments?What's more important to you, getting tons of traffic with no comments or getting less traffic with comments?For me, I love to get comments because it lets me know if I have touched someone or given someone a new way of doing...
