    Heck yeah I do. If anything, it embarrasses them.

    Sometimes I respond to the “negative nanny” through comments, other times through an e-mail, and every once in a while I just let it hang out.

    I do not consider them as negative unless they are totally off track,  I actually value suggestions ( that is how I would like to look at them) because they help me improve my work.
    If they are totaly critical and unreasonable, I might disregard them and not entertain such a comment.

    I suppose it would have to be what type of negative feedback it is.  If it's something that will help me improve my writing, then of course I will keep it, and probably take their advice!

    If it's just someone being mean or calling me an idiot, that would not be approved.  It does no one any good. 

    Hope this helps you!

    There is nothing wrong with negative comments or feedback it would be a strange world indeed if we went around only reacting to positive comments.

    I quite often give and receive negative feedback and comment withing Hub, questions and the Forum, as long as it is constructive and you can help where is the harm. 

    What is wrong is destructive comments and feedback, there is no call for anybody to be rude insulting or abusive.

    We cannot agree on everything and sometimes the most constructive thing you can do is say nothing !

    Least said Etc...Etc...

    Negative feedback doesnt seem good initially but it helps in improving the quality of the post  and it should be taken in a positive sense.

    I usually approve negative comments, unless they are plain mean spirited or attacking me personally. I have had a few of those. I on occasion will approve those and challenge the commenter to write his/her own hub, and let them be judged.

    Negative comments can help with what may need changing if anything with the hub. One thing to remember is not everybody is going to like everything we write, there are people out there that just HAVE to say something. To stir up the pot. Unfortunately sometimes the negative comments sting, but sometimes they encourage us to move ahead with a better hub.
