    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! smile

    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. smile

      Ditto Yoshi smile I get caught up quite a bit in the forums but it reminds me of my old days when I used to play World of Warcraft and ran a guild. I would hardly play the game. Just talk with people on end.

    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.

    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.
