Mine was a little while ago, I received a letter from a Lawyer, you know the kind that wants to give you $10000000000 for being the b.s. to someones Estate. They use a silly name like Mr Taylor Esquire. That is so it looks important. Well thats all well and good because Mr Taylor esquire has many strings to his bow, He is now selling Cialis, and claims that it has made him... Well ya don't want to know, what it has done for him, but you get my drift.
I'm sorry a common spam letter has managed to qualify as your weirdest online experience.
Meeting online boyfriend #2 for the first time after months of talking to him on the phone and online.....in a hotel, .
What has gotten into me tonight!
Was he what you expected, I guess you had seen photos?
mmmmmmmm. Yep. I've usually got an excellent sense of these things. Going on 5 years now.
My friend wasn't as lucky she got a Russian prince and he was a Multi millionaire, he left an envelope on the cafe Table, and it was his discharge from a Physc Unit. We still laugh about it. Far as I know Russia doesn't have Princes. must check that, I should know.
Na! He's just a regular old architect, but that's OK! Mostly. lol
You have to scope them out well... My little sister has the same problems. No, there are no longer princes in Russia...
I am supposed to be studying to be a regular old architect, but have decided to opt for Landscape Architecture.
I thought the Czar that was killed's family was the final Russian Royal Family, and the Anastasia thing. But thanks, I really wasn't sure.
Good for you Lita!! lifes too short to piss around, might as well -live it I say
Is how my relationship began ,except really was more along the lines of boy next door kinda thing , or in our case halfway across the world! lol, but hey 9 yrs later and we celebrate our first wedding annversary this saturday!! ( lastest hub ,hint hint)
I met Bill online too. Going on six years now.
This may not be "impressively weird", but I once got a writing assignment for article through an online site. It was about discount brokers, so it was a straightforward article as far as information goes. I know how to write a professionally written article, so I did and sent it to the guy for approval or revisions. He first said it was fine. Then he asked if I'd add a bunch of new stuff to it as a "revision". I added the new stuff, and he said it was fine. Then he thought up yet more new stuff he wanted, and the people on the site that matched the assignment apparently drew the line. In the meantime, he wasn't "officially accepting" the article, so I was waiting to hear more from him.
I decided to look on his site just to see if the article was there, and it was - but he had hacked the heck out of the first paragraphs in it. He destroyed all my proper grammar and replaced it with horrendous broken English. He didn't even really change anything as far as information went. It was as if he hated my good grammar and just decided to undo that!! So, there was my previously well written article - a big, humiliating, horror show!! I have no explanation other than he was some kind of nut! Fortunately, I have a copy of the original article; but I can't offer the link to his site if I want to show a sample. The "killer" is that this idiot has a financial site, and he posted that mess on his front page!
I know exactly what you mean, I did up some flyers for a Client, and he was Indian, and he butchered all the Real estate details by putting" Very lovely" in front of everything. Then to add insult to injury, he writes at the Bottom "Enjoy Please"
I think I'll start putting, "Please Enjoy" at the top of all my Hubs. That's an interesting approach.
NOOOO this Client is truly awful he had an architecturally designed contemp Home, built and he painted it Lime green, he loves to say enjoy, He wanted to be a Bollywood Actor, insteed he owns Dairies pure Sleaze and when he pays you, he kisses his Wallet.
Oh thanks, and you have made my Night. In a Lifetime spent trying to be totally weird Looks like Misha I am truly there Well actually I don't need to try, I am just totally zany and peculiar.
tksensei understands me tho I think.
The weirdest experience I think is right here at the HubPages forum.
Sockpuppet shows without end... banned members who just can't stay away... so much hate and venom in the religious forum...
They should change the name The Hubber's Hangout to The Hubber's Asylum.
When I discovered someone had an alterego. Someone who's been playing my friend all along, but was attacking me with a different id. Just a reminder - never trust anyone, especially not in a pc forum.
how many times do i need to apologise for that.... it was meant as a joke i would never attack you.... i can't believe that upset you so much..... what more can i do but say sorry i wish you could forgive and forget... i am truly sorry...
my worst experience so far, has been to find out that someone who i thought was tough, you know would carry a gun around etc... could not take a small joke, that this person was in fact ultra sensitive..... you live and learn.... i hope this person can find it in his heart to stop mentioning it it was a mistake i am soooooo sorry. Or maybe you are winding me up now, but i don't be cruel to friends like never ever...
I dont carry a gun around. It was a gift from my Pops. For protection. I hide it in my house. Thanks a lot, Brenda. You're a real pal. No kidding.
i don't know what it is about you.... no reason to be your friend really...... but i remember crying when Mark was horrible to you i actually cried when i read your comment on here, i never ever ever cry..... now what is the power you have over me i wonder.....
Hi Misha i have just realised that i have never spoke to you or looked at your hubs or anything...... why? is it because you were so active in religious forums and we differ a lot in our beliefs..... i am being prejudice.... i am going to check out some of your hubs..... i have noticed how popular you are....
LOL Don't remember ever confronting you Brenda, but thanks anyway
you did not confront me ever....... i just read a lot before i started writing on here..... i really took a dislike to you... and your photo was scary.... it is better now.... isn't that so insular of me.... and i have grown on here thank goodness
I have a woman stalker. Of some 7 or 8 years standing now. Is that good enough to be classed as weird?
And stalk really is the right word. The only thing she hasn't done is physically harm me. Mentally disturbed me a time or two, granted. But no frog extermination attempts. Though she has threatened to do so on occasion.
Her last contact with me was recent and semi-malevolent. Usually she's one way or the other but maybe she's trying the nice/nasty/nice approach now.
Weirdo's. You just can't find the same quality as back in the day ...
Trust me, I am not THAT scary
And I can totally relate on growing here, I did grow quite a bit during my stay, this is a great place to learn - if you are into that kind of things
YES this is a great learning experience..... i think the acceptance of people does not stand in the way of growing..... I love hub pages, i actually think it is the one of the best things i have ever done..... i know you are not that scary.... i had a very sheltered up bringing..... and most people don't like the religion i was brought up in..... i stay away from religious forums now..... and just relate to people on other levels were feelings don't run so high.... nice to meet ya..x
LOL I know there is such a thing as cross-posting. I guess we should coin a new term - cross-fanning
saw you had fanned me, and felt ashamed so i did the same... made me smile..... experiencing every emotion on here today.... it must be a real good day for growth.... maybe it will help my writing also well that is what it is all about isn't it......?
My wierdest online experience BEFORE reading this thread was, some guy I dont know emailed me a pic of a man peeling off his face. It was disturbing and gross and I have NO clue why someone sent me that. Hi Brenda, hows your new job and home and all? I like your new avitar. Hi FieryCj, I didnt know anyone was ever mean to you? that is wierd. Hi Misha, how is your traveling? Hi Frogdropping, dont worry about Gulliver, I am sure hes jsut stopped off to peek thru some bushes. And I think your stalker thing takes the cake. That is beyond wierd. He everyone else I forogt to say hi to. have a good day!!
dennise - *hmmmmmm* at the bear.
And my stalker? You know what she did recently? She actually tracked down my daughter via the net, added her in some guise or other (a teen one) and got chatting to her.
It only came to light when my daughter popped this out " mum lol I have this girl, all she wants to do is talk about you! How weird is that?!"
Obviously the bells rung, I confirmed it was 'her' and I put a stop to it. And that resulted in the usual email response from my stalker. And a lecture for my daughter. And added worry about how accessible and vulnerable our children are via the internet.
Seriously, it's all very odd
Worse then odd, that is scary!!!!can you get the police involved?
Yikes , Ive read about crazy crap like that happening frogs, does she get hold of your IP or something like that ...ewwwww
I thought guy with blowup dolls were nutty ,but nope there is something sinister about stalkers...shiver just ran up my spine...hey isnt that criminal btw?
There are so many spam messages comes each our to my indox, i think so many of us receiving this kind of mails and recently in my city there was a big scam caught by cyber-police and that was originated from keynya. some people from keneya who runs this kind of scam is spreading all the world now..
Oh I've done 'stuff' to combat it and she's not so bad these days. I went and looked actually, regarding how long she's been around, being weird, and its from 2002.
At least she's consistent. If a little disturbed.
The story, dennise: Way back when msn had chatrooms, I frequented one. I was always getting kicked out because my inner idiot self is slightly out of control at times. Anyway. she was the 'owner' of it.
She was friendly enough and through talking and time (and some henpecking from another friend that felt sorry for her) I said she could come down and visit us.
She did. She was supposed to stay the weekend. Three weeks later I packed her up and forced her onto a train.
And when I say force ... I'm not kidding. I was thoroughly horrified. And from that day to this, she's always found out when I've moved, new email adresses etc.
Oddly enough she's rather wealthy and, in my opinion, real life evidence that money does not buy you happiness.
Oh man. that is so odd. soo sooo sooooo wierd, and now I am beggining to feel kinda bad about my idiot total self and prolly should monnitor thigns a bit more closely here? Oh wow. I always knew money does nto buy happiness. so she IS jealous? how sad and wierd and horrid!!!
No idea. I just don't respond to her. To be really honest I actually feel for her.
Many things in life can mess us up and maybe that's what's wrong with her.
Had heard similiar stories from the MSN Chatrooms How did they work. I never bothered mucgh with the Net back then?
CJ , is open with his affections ,thats nice , no flirty emails or sleezy come on's just up front and cool as
Hey can I email ya
When someone emailed me and said "thanks for last night, although I wasn't sure about the chocolate sauce, it made a mess!"
Met my ex on internet Date Site. great he was sposed to be wealthy, didn't mention he didn't like taking his pocketbook out of hi strides though.
But the weird bit, he lived only 5 doors from my place and didn't even realise for around 4 months.

The weirdest insult I can remember getting was in a Denny's cafe. My friends and I were hanging out drinking coffee and putting off going home as late as we could. We had one of those big booths that sit a good sized group. We were minding our own business sharing a piece of sinful chocolate cake...

I've just received an email announcing that I have been invited to participate in HubPro Premium. I'm a bit taken aback and more than a little leery. I'm taken aback because I have been one of those fortunate ones whose hubs are moved automatically after publication to the niche sites...

I thought this article was very interesting. It's by a blogger who tested long posts vs short ones, and found the longer posts did much better:http://www.quicksprout.com/2012/12/20/t … ersions/#.(note: there's a popup that comes up - I just closed it and it went away).
