It's true...I got so engrossed reading the forum asking if CabinGirl/BadCompany should stay...then I got into reading CabinGirl's goodbye forum...
All I can say is, all of those just really showed how passionate people are about HubPages and hubbing in general. And all of those give character to HubPages. Doubt if I can find another site with the same involvement hubbers here have...another reason why HP is a great place to be!
often I am too tired to make a hub even though the creative juices are there...so I go to the forums too...
Hubpages, for many, is an escape from real life. However, we see our share of real life here in the many characters (and I don't mean that in any manner other than a kind one) that are on these forums.
Interestingly enough ... I get many great hub ideas reading the forums ... I just need to break away long enough to write some of them.
When I posted that Forum Post re shouild cabin Girl and Badco stay, I did so, to show that people should have a say in what went on, with regards this continuing Saga. I really enjoy that type of thing, but that is me.
I naturally thought that they should both stay. That was and still is my opinion, the knockers are always the same people.
They are generally too serious for their own good.
They are in every walk of life and too must have a say, but I do think the reporting,that goes on and the tittle tattling, is so unnecessary, I like the way kmackey handles the Forums, she has had a few knockers but doesn't buckle, gives as good as she gets, she wants them to stay, as do so many others. So if a clear majority says yes. I say majority rulz.The majority wanted them to stay, and I mean both of them. I have told people if you are easily offended don't mix it with the parties that like a bit more raucous fun. Just do a smiley if ya get insulted and walk away. Takes too to tango.
I should have titled this forum "I spend more time reading the forums than doing hubs:)"
yeah me to as you can probably tell from my post to hub ratio. Also agree with others it is a welcome break.
Just avoid the forums for a while if you thinks it's a problem.
Focus and follow your own rules. A good one is: make a hub first, browse the forums later.
Naughty me I have also spent ample time in the forums you can tell by the numbers under my avatar, I however need to get reading it certainly is the political correct way of showing my appreciation for others.

There are a lot of us who haven't been feeling safe on the forums. They've felt stalked, harassed and browbeaten.Sadly, some folks go with the letter of the law, but not the spirit of it in their posts.For an excellent...

Has anyone else noticed a serious drop in quality among the Question portion of HubPages? For the past several weeks, nearly every question that is featured in the "my account" section has been ripe with...

Okay this is great! I downloaded it this morning, and it's really working wonderfully. We all know Edweirdo, a very clever and useful hubber who created the HubDefender tool for us all which detects hub-theft and...

I've come to the conclusion that in order to get people to even look at your hubs, you must post in these forums. It may help get a few more fans, but if it doesn't, what have you lost. I've come here to hubber's...

Sorry for the inconvenience- but that's what I just saw. HubPages staff, Jason Menayan, who runs another account called 'livelonger', just posted here in the link below, to save the Hubs from sinking??? Hah!I quote...
