Okay, so after we enable someone to do something, the ENABLE them to bring it to the forefront, find out we all have just be duped, and then ENABLE them to makes us look stupid for believing in them....
And, then What? They are enabled, once again by closing their threads to reply? Okay......., since I'm not codependent. Can someone explain to me I should NOT find that to be a tad hypocritical, or ridiculous? I loved Badco. Loved'em. I have sat through their drunkiness, because I like them and had made mistakes myself, you know. Moreover, because they are one of favorite writers, I've even sent tweets out on my twitter site, promoting their hubs, and what not. And now- I as a fan can NOT tell them, I'm sick of enabling them by making it okay for them to carry on with their stunts, by opening the doors to more bad behavior. Furthermore, to also say to stop the stupidness because this fan of their's isn't happy about it! Not everyone is happy about it, and not everyone is going to continue on enabling them to keep this stupid, childish shit up any longer. Enough is a enough whoever you are now at this moment, badco! It is a shame that I've had to open up a new forum post to say this, because all the forum posts have been closed to reply????
Badco! What's up dude, gal, alien, monk??? Whomever you are! Have you gone all Tom Cruise on us, or what? Is this your way of crying out for help? Because if it is, I've been there brother. I'm an addict!!! Crack, meth, prescription drug addict. And your behavior reminds me of my own, when I was reaching out for help. Do you need someone to talk too? Because this craziness, is not the way to go my friend. Now I don't mean to be all up into your inventory, but I shut my eyes once before- and someone lost their life. Now- I know nothing about you, only what you write; ARE YOU in need of understanding and friendship? Quite frankly, are you a drunk? Are you a banger? Because, I'm here to help you walk through it. <address and phone snipped for user's protection>. That is for YOU. That is for anyone suffering an addiction, and needs some help making it one day at a time. Your life is important to me, this other BS, is just that SHIT!
I posted a Forum Post which asked did people want them to stay. The numbers say yes. I do not think that this person is crying out for help. Hes having fun. He holds down a job. I think it is totally ridiculous to offer yourself as a Councillor. I personally wasn't going to comment either, but it will go on and on, (The folly) its just part of the action Sit back and enjoy. I think a chill pill is the corresct terminology. Your heart is in the right place, but seriously this guy is together and hes bloody talented to boot. I mean could you do two people like that I couldn't even though I am meant to be part of Panda Mans crew dispite us living continents away. Its all fun. Just found out Darkside is frogdropping. Its great.
Are you aware that Google scans these forums, that unregistered users can read them and that despite your comments that your legal name, address and phone are just for one person, you've actually made that info available to anyone who might come along?
Don't really care. Badco, in my opinion is in trouble. That is what I sense. I'm here to help.
It's not like this information ain't already out there to be gather and received. But thank you for your concern. But hey, I'm from the "ghetto" of poor white trash, so bring it on as we say in the gut of the "hill billy" movement. Meth grows on the walls of trailers, not usually the n the upper class districts. But again, thank you for your concern.
Thanks for sniping I guess. My point is though, Badco??? if that's right, I'm here to hold your hand. But, not as a codependent or enabler. So my "tough" love may sting a bit more, than others. Stop the stupidness will ya? I don't think to kindly of it. And if you think about it, YOU wouldn't have either.
I've snipped your name, address, and phone number for your own protection. If you really do want to offer this information to a user or users, you should send them an email through the contact link on their profile.
There are a number of reasons threads get closed (including personal attacks, thread hijacking, etc). Sometimes I close threads because they've run their course, or there have been new developments that make them irrelevant. This is the case with the recent threads to which you refer.
BadCompany himself has corrected the record (that he is NOT leaving) and expressed that he wished the thread would sink into oblivion, but people aren't bothering to read the whole thread, or even the most recent responses, only the original post, which was creating confusion and adding fuel to a fire that ought to be let die out.
THat's great and all. And boy, I've been there. But both of them? I did read both threads through and through. From start to finish. Like I said, badco is one of MY favorite writers. And just like when Steven King got hit by a car, I wanted to know what was going on. So I read the crap.
But, as I stated I think clearly_ Come on badco! What the hell gives? Why are you going around on the forum posts, posting your business on this or that? Got banned? Okay, accept it. Especially if it was YOUR alter-ego. Are you nuts? So, then I said to myself, Yeah- maybe they are. Maybe they need help. Cause the only people I know, doing wack-o crap like that is drunks and bangers. And since I'm both, I should know. The first thing they teach us in Banger 101 or Drunk 101: we are THE best at reaching out, and making everything okay by surrounding ourselves with a heap full of enablers. If at anytime, any of this remotely reflects badco- he knows what he is doing. I'm just not one of those enabler kind of hubbers. But I am here to help him sort it out.
Badco, there is nothing wrong with having an alter-ego. Major writers, for thousands of years have written under a ghost writer's pen. Ain't nothing wrong with it. It is actually a great marketing strategy.
But this stupid crap, of airing all YOUR rowdiness and the hubpage disciplines that always follow in the wake of your destruction, on the hubpage community forum, IS STUPID. Keep it to yourself. Just because YOU know, doesn't always mean the rest of us should know. So the next time you make up an alter-ego, and financially my advice would be to do so, keep the two halves separate, and your poor behavior punishments out of the forums.
I am just sorry I let you down a 2nd time Maddie, I promise it deff wont happen again and thank you !
Okay, I have refrained up to this point. It is comments like these that fuel the fire Maddie is talking about. Drop it. BC's sincerity or lack there of has nothing to do with you. I personally have a lot of respect for BC, though he is not perfect (and he is well aware of that). Please think about what really is important to say and what is just egging things on that don't need to continue. It just makes things harder for everybody when we don't. Thanks.
Let Maddie down??? After everything, that is your main concern??? Feeling sorry for yourself, gets you NO where fast.
You want some to feel sorry for you?
How about this, I pity you. Now get off your BS, and deal this crap face on! You haven't addressed the question I asked of you....
But, this response TELLS someone like myself, everything they need to know.
No sorry I was offline, some powerful stuff you have written there and I have taken it on board. The pity yes I agree was there but its gone now, its done and dealt with. I only reply to you and that is because you have my respect as a writer unlike tksensei who is not even worthy of a reply.
So I will get of my BS and deal with it, enjoy yer weekend my friend !
Maybe they don't want the help or aren't willing to listen anymore-it's called denial. I had a similar situation with a sweetie who wrote a political piece without a comment capsule...hhmmmm-Maybe she is afraid to many people would not agree with her.
Intimate-your hearts in the right place, but sometimes you just can't help people who are not willing to help themselves.
Hey, I am here for you when your ready. I am scoring some drugs for the weekend, non naroctic but hey as a person who dishes crazy out 24/7 help is just a email away. Be safe

I just noticed that Matthew replied to a question from a Hubber and immediately closed the threadThere used to be an unspoken policy on the forums - a thread was only closed if things got too heated and unpleasant. I hope that policy is not going to change, for several reasons. For one thing,...

Seems like there are a noticeable number of forum threads closed to reply. Veteran hubbers, are the current numbers typical? Some threads I assume get closed to reply because the topic is controversial or inflammatory, but it seems that other similar threads remain open. Some...

Is it just me, or have a dozen or so hubbers just dropped off the planet??? Hmm...it's so quiet around here!

Come on HubPages, closing threads all the time, is only going to create more animosity towards one another. The thread was drawing to end on it's own. So why close is Mauddie? I don't get that. Now nobody gets to say their sorry, and work things out to be better...

I'm always curious what prompts people to start writing blogs. Is there something on their mind they need to get off their chest? Do they hope to make money off their thoughts? Or maybe they just want to share their expertise with the world? Whatever the reason, I'm glad they do it,...
