Ok for a start we really don't know each other, we are just people who write, post a hub and perhaps exchange the odd comment. But a remark by a hubber the other day kinda bothered me and made me think about what he said.
The matter of respect on Hubpages and to be honest I have noticed certain people no longer visit my hubs. Thing is there are also people that I no longer respect or read anymore and have also unfanned.
But really is this being too judgemental on people we don't know and I watch the forums and know it's not just me that gets a bit over the top at times. I have seen certain hubbers who deff hate each other, but why? You don't really know the person but on saying that there is a male arrogant hubber who makes me laugh nightly because he actually thinks he is intelligent wheras he just keeps repeating the same crap.
So come on, let it rip, do you stop reading a hubber you used to like, for what reason? Do you care if you notice a regular fan stops reading your hubs, answers on a postcard please
Honey, I haven't stopped reading your hubs really....just haven't had time to read anybody's. I'll be back - honest!
Um, I have no idea what this is really about, BC (?) And I just kind glanced through the postings.
I don't read that many hubs, honestly, and never really have, especially since I work full time writing & find it hard to put up my own hubs a lot, even.
And, I figure there are some here on the forums who are here just to have fun...some here to debate, etc., etc., but I don't disrespect anyone. Only a couple (well, one to be exact) who I've yet to see any redeeming value beyond being a troll do I dislike. 'Hate' is way too strong of a word, though.
So, as far as I'm concerned, be as you are. Whatever is good.
In answer to this question, yes I notice - probably because I fall into the category of "people that I no longer respect or read anymore and have also unfanned." for whatever reason.
I naively presumed that people joined a fan club because they enjoyed what that particular Hubber had to say, and the way they said it. I have since discovered that many join simply for the reciprocity. I still enjoy reading and answering comments and reading their replies, and while I see that not all my fans comment on every single hub, I respect that what I have written may not interest them, but maybe my next posting might.
I don't read every single hub from every single person I have fanned either - not because I don't respect their point of view or appreciate their hard work and diligence, but simply because that particular article might not be what I am interested in reading at the time, or possibly because like everyone here, I have a life outside of HubPages that needs attending to from time to time, and I'm not the most organized person on the face of the planet.
The only time I stop commenting on hubs is after being repeatedly ignored, again for whatever reason, which shows me my views are not of consequence to the reader(s) in question.
I'm not worried about an individual reader dropping my feed because some opinion I hold offended them or because they don't have time to keep reading it. I know if I fan too many Hubbers, I'll spend so much time doing my mail and reading Hubs that I won't have time to write mine or work on my novels or do my art.
I write for the people who like my writing, in several unrelated topics. I trust that my readers got into it because they like my topics and a fewer number of core readers just like the way I write, the same way I got the feeds for waynet and pamgrundy because I love all of their hubs and like all or almost all their topics.
I wouldn't worry about it if someone de-fans me. People either have time or they don't. I can't maintain a long list of people I fan, so I choose a very few top favorites and let it go at that. I'm new to the forums here though, so I have no idea how forum activity affects readership. I guess I'll find out.
One other comment about comments themselves. If I don't have time to comment, then I may read and not comment. For everyone who does comment, there are at least ten and up to a hundred people who read without commenting. Many may just do a thumbs up and not comment if they enjoyed it.
So I don't assume that if a Hub has no comments it means no one read it, or that my regulars didn't like it. They're probably reading all of them but not always commenting.
Usually when I comment, I do get a comment from the author of the Hub that I commented on, but I don't regard that as an obligation. It's way too easy for anyone to start getting so wrapped up in reciprocity that they don't have time to write because they're keeping up doing comments ahead of other priorities. I comment a lot when I'm relaxed in a garrulous mood. When not, I may just be in a "reading" mood and casually thumbs up when I like it without any words.
Dont tell me that comment I made the other day bugged you so much. You're full of drama, but you're a cool dude, man.
If I cared I wouldn't come to any forum. As I said 10000 times, for me is only fun. And yes if someone attacks me I fight back. I only would unfan someone whos has been rude to me, not for what he thinks or does, a couple of christian fanatics are my fans and I am theirs. And I never unfanned you BC not even then...
You I respect, you are up front and speak your mind I am talking about the person who is one day yer best mate then just vanishes without a trace. You are not false, you are you and I respect that in a person.
bc i love you. people are crazy. dont worry. inread yer hubs as soon as i can. you know that. maybe others have slow computers? if not, who cares? you know who your real friends are.
Its not really the reading of hubs Dennise it's the respect and that actually does matter to me. I never considered it until yesterday when I had a bit of banter with Fierycj and he said I had lost the respect I used to have because of that night I went crazy. I think Fiery is right, people do lose respect on here and I can understand that. Thing is I am who I am, I will not change and for me respect is important.
i c. fiery is.,,,,,fiery. i respect you bevause you are you. but you gotta admit, fiery will never be anyone hes not either.
I read a lot of hubs and do not always comment. I do not think anyone hates each other on the forums, and often there are disagreements. Some people like each other more than others, and that is true on the forum as it is in life . There are certain people in the forum that love to give me a hard time because of certain views I have. I have been trying not to participate as much as there is no point to those discussions.
I try to treat people online like I would in real life ,and in real life I sometmes get cranky or snappy too, hopefully the good outweighs the bad..
I guess it just depends on the person and their own personal boundaries (which we only see a glimpse of really,if at all).
Its a bit like high school ,in so much as we cant get away from people ,but we at least get a break
And I dont even keep up with who has unfanned me or not , because ya win some ya lose some.
Eaglekiwi you are a diamond, you really are and you are yourself and if I was given a choice to pick my top 3 friends on hubs you would be in there. Just lately I feel like I am wasting my time on here. On the forums that is, lately I have been thinking of just posting my hub then rating a few and logging off.
Dude - you seem really racked off. Are you sure it is totally to do with the BS that goes on here?
Hey Mark how goes it, religion boring tonight. No its just on here I have no bad shit to blame God on, you can move on but cheers for caring !
Thats a very kind thing to say ,but Im nobody special truly
Who knows one day I could get on here , shoot my mouth off and be banned..ya just never know ,so I even though I might mutter , ahem no one in particular , bloody silly buggar etc etc .. I know that could easily be either one of us melting down and BOOM ,Partys over
I hear ya re forum, its one constant power struggle after another...but I almost finished a hub today , and ezine approved an article and shot me up the list for some rss feed link...so maybe Ill make $2 this week ,instead of a few cents.
But Ive lost the edge a bit , unmotivated maybe ,dunno.
Oh thankyou again , youre either very perceptive or pulling my leg...nahh ya make up for other crap that gets said to me ,reckon we be ok bro
Personally, I go back and forth about that all the time. It does feel at times that you are wasting your time, but the real question is this: Why do you write? Do you write to inform or do you write in order to get validation from people. If you write for the first reason, you will most likely return even after getting burned out. If you, like me, write for the sheer joy of putting ideas down on paper and creating something new and unique, you'll always come back. It's like a drug.
If, on the other hand, you write for validation purposes, well you might no do so well here. Unlike writing for the sheer joy of it, a validator wants people to agree with him or her and/or admire the intellect of such a person. With the sheer numbers of people who visit this site on a daily basis you're going to get people from just about every conceivable ideology. It's a given that some people will not give a validator what they came here for.
Respect, in many ways is not defined correctly. Gangbangers, for example, use respect when what they really mean is fear. Likewise I think respect in the way you envision it is agreement. Respect is earned, but each of us have a different system by which we evaluate respect. With some people, for example, I do an awesome job of ramming my foot directly in my mouth. Later, as we talk and get to know one another, respect may grow, or it may not. Indeed, there are some people here I respect that I never would have believed I would when I first began talking to them. Likewise there are people I've met here whom I will never respect. But that's OK. It's not like my respect or lack thereof is going to materially affect that person. If I don't like them and they don't like me, we can tune each other out. Don't feed the trolls in other words.
In the end the only person you have to be able to look in the face is yourself. If you like what you see, great. If not, well you have some soul-searching to do I think. Anyway that's my two cents.
You know wat I love about you, yer as boring as yer pic, go lick fortunereps ass !
Any man that uses the words 'Gangbangers' in a hubpages forum has at least the potential to be the opposite to boring, unless that means something else in America
That, my dear, is a matter of perspective. As for licking ass, I don't it takes forever to get the taste out, or so I'm given to understand.
Given to understand for sure, now get off my page and take some flowers to Fortunerep because you bore me, ok I am done being polite, bugger off you boring ugly lil git !
Is that the best you can do? I figured your command of invective was a little more clever than that.
Nah, not really into masochism. Sadism, now, that I might be able to get into.
I think I know the arrogant son of a bitch you are talking about BadCo, smug son of a bitch !
He seemed a nice caring man Bad, you could do with a nice friend like that !
Well I personally do not hate anyone. Who cares what other people do really?
People care SP, you might think you dont but people care !
I checked out my 'comments on' tab and realised that I havent been reading hubs for ages.... but the reason is...... I spend too much time on this bleeding forum!
My '100 great hubs by 100 great hubbers' project will hopefully make up for that a little..... but I have noticed (without naming names) that some of this forums 'heavyweights' so to speak..... are the ones that havent bothered to help out another hubber by participating in my project.
I am convinced that a couple of this forums most heavily fanned and most active posters are in this game completely for their own benefit and without any desire whatsoever to help out newbies, or help anybody for that matter, but are very quick to jump on peoples back when they have a bad day or make one silly comment. There are a few very established hubbers that believe they should be worshipped for various reasons, but who have gained respect for all the wrong reasons.
I probably shouldnt have started this rant, as everybody is now going to wondering whether I am referring to them.
As it happens, you are one of my favourite people on here badcompany and were amongst the few that were quick to jump on my hubs to leave a nice comment and lift my spirits when I had my own falling out with some people (thats happened a few times, so again.... readers should not be jumping to any conclusions there).
But the best thing to do is forget about the people to whom you refer, and think about the greatest hubbers. Uninvited_writer, eaglewiki, Mark Knowles are a few of the great heavyweights that I can immediately think of. I have noticed that Relache and Nellie Hoxon (sic.) are also very helpful and welcoming to newbies..... there are some great people on here. (How could I forget, Cabingirl).
Then there are the newer hubbers, some of whom starting writing around the same time as me..... Colebabie, Davinax (think thats her name), tantrum..... there are many that seem like really great guys and girls. Helen Carter another new one that I notice that you have got on with, a few of us are really trying to help her out.... and thats testimony to how good this community can be.
- Edited - oops
Anyway, I want to see some hubs from you Badcompany99.... Im sure that you were on 46 a couple of weeks ago!
Don't take it to heart Badco, as you stated - people hardly know each other.
I know you have a lot of good friends on HP - so stick wiv em.
Hello BC, I couldn't help but notice and read your comments in here! I just wanna say that I read many times about people hating each other on HP and I never knew why? We don't see the person but we only read him/ her and if we don't like what we read, we should just let it go and move on!!! Our reaction should never be targeted at hating anyone... Some poeple deserve that but i just like ignore them...
Thanks Shamel when I eventually give up the Wild Imagination you shall be the Captain
Oh dear friend, you're such a great writer who has wild and eventful imagination... You're one of the few whom I read and enjoy reading. Thanks for your nice words.
Ryan can i just say Fiery is a true friend of mine, hes a good guy who speaks his mind and I both like him and respect him but his remark made me think about my persona on here.
Is my double act with Cabin Girl a farce, have I lost respect because I do know of 10 really good friends that have vanished and its ok to say its just a website. Its also a community and some people are so much different like Mark Knowles who could so easily have torn into me but he didnt, he offered help and I respect the guy for that.
I have me, I have CG, I may reincarnate !
Dude, I just edited my post after realising that and before you replied (maybe you change your reply to me so as to not upset him) Apologies for misunderstanding that post. We all get along with different people, but there are plenty of people that relate to your persona and respect you greatly. Those that dont are not worth worrying about. Everybody that has replied to this thread seems to like you for a start. If people are as fickle and impatient as to change their opinion of somebody after one incident, on one night, then let them go. Simple as mate, chin up.
Lol do you think he's stupid, only about 7 people have replied to this post. I am the Cabin Girl and believe it or not I am the main alter-ego and I tell him what to do. Do you recall the movie Sybil, well I am the main persona not BadCo and I decide what he does. This post has proved to me that my talks with him were well founded.
I personally enjoy the presence of Cabin Girl, and so do many others. I spoke to you on here because I liked one of your hubs, I also commented on one of Cabin Girls hubs before I discovered that you were the same person.
In fact, I cared so little about this news.... that I didnt even bother to read the 'controversial' thread(s). Why should I care?
I have to admit though, that I can never reply to cabin girls direct replies to me... I dont know why, not because i am offended by it, I just cant roleplay. I know that I cant roleplay outside of my own mind because I have tried it several times with girls We all see enough of the real badcompany.
I do have one bit of advice though.... maybe keep any other alter egos that you may have under wraps for now
I just read about the Fiery issue before Ryan Edited the post and had a look through the Thread - Like you said, F always speaks his mind but you 2 ended the "conversation" on a good note.
Personally, I think you just need to ask yourself one question. What are your objectives for joining HP? which I'm guesssing would be to Write good articles - and that you do very well.
So, what's it to be Badco? Are you gonna let people's comments get to you?
Look forward to reading more interesting Hubs from you...
Im not too sure that I know anything about the Fiery issue... Im not sure if that is what this post by badcompany is about.... I misunderstood the thread at being aimed towards fiery, and maybe it was I dont know, I edited because the last thing I want is to get involved in another argument with Fiery myself
Tonight it was a choice of the two alter-egos Lady E and I won, I can write better than BadCo and unlike that wimp I am a ruthless bitch who cares not what people think. In future I shall write the hubs, BadCo is but history !
So come on, let it rip, do you stop reading a hubber you used to like, for what reason? - I haven't stoppped liking anyone, so no.
Do you care if you notice a regular fan stops reading your hubs And no again.
BC you're a larger than life character. Received for who and what you are. I understand perfectly where you're coming from and can't help but think you're heart's big and out on your sleeve.
But you know that anyway
Go and write, clear out those cobwebs
Lol he used to be Frog, I even surpass BadCo now !
And of the two of you CG - we know who's wearing the pants
Nobody gives a shit you fool, how many times have I to tell you ?
Badco dammit ya almost bought a tear to my eye!!
Hugged me all way inside my kiwi feathers thanks bud
Im off for now play nice now ...put some badcompany and rock the house !! !!!!
Ryan, ya got my attention way back for your sassy attitude ,and endearing personality. Did ya read my ezine kudos up there ,see Im not in the forum ALL the time they liked it ...yaaayyy.
I never stopped reading and because of my husband I have even slowed down on my writing. I cannot seem to think if anything to write about. I have not unfanned anyone even if I disagree with what they say, I quickly get over it and move on. I have even gone as far as apologizing for being snippy it isn't in my character to really be rude but I have seen it within myself lately and I do not care for it. I don't believe anyone has lost respect for you I just believe that sometimes we all fight our own demons and we feel empty and lost. I know you BC and you are harmless all of us rant some my perception of you has not changed one bit. ((Big Hugs))
This bit is for you Fiery, the Cabin Girl pulls out her gun, cocks the pistol and " Boom "
BadCo falls on the deck, I am free at last to be me the Cabin Girl, he so dragged me down
Come on !! cheer up ! And start the party you were going to have! . I must leave now, but I'll be back tomorrow. Save me apint!
I'm sorry CB ! i thought the party was going to b earlier. I really have 2go ! So please tell me you're going 2 b good to the captain, if not i'm leaving worried !
Badcompany and Cabingirl are Ying and Yang...Both must coexist in order for balance to be prevalent...Call the Captain, CG!
Since only a few have placed comments on my hubs I don't rreally care if they all read my hubs or not. I know of only a few who do. And I try my harest to read hubs but dang it it's like everyday I come on here and all the people I am a fan of has written a new one. I just can't keep up...
But as for respect...I do respect you BC and you CG and enjoy talking to you guys. I do my best to ignore the hubbers who do repeat themselves constantly with no point to their posts but as far as resepect goes I respect everyone until they show me that they don't deserve it.
My point my friend, BadCo lost his, is why I had to shoot him !
Aaaa CG you didn't have to shoot him maybe lock him up and keep hidden somewhere for a while but ya didn't have to shoot him lol
Well then, the King is dead...God save the Queen ! Bye ! I REALLY have 2 go
I hope not! CG You better not get banned again! lol
SHould we grab chairs and popcorn and watch the show? lol
CG just don't get banned again please? we just got to talkin' and met and all that.
What would I get banned for, I have done nothing Misha just loves the word banned sure its a Russian babies first word
Okay good as long as you don't get banned, though I don't know why you got banned the first time. curious to know what happened for that one.
Awwwww I dont think so Misha, no swear words, nothing bad said, only deja vu is you !
I agree with your original statement. For one thing, none of us really know each other(I'm assuming anyway), so I don't understand why people get so upset and start slinging rude and nasty comments back and forth in the forums. Of course, i have had a bad night or two myself and posted some comments that were a little terse (not aimed at anyone but at the subject matter) and thought about it afterwards and wondered why the heck i did it. I could have just as easily given my opinion on the subject without being rude and just as easily made my point known. As for respect, well, that's a whole nother enchilada. I have my favorite hubbers and always try to read their new hubs when they come out. If it's something I really like or am interested in then I'll leave a comment otherwise I don't. I think too many people take these forums way too seriously. But I am still a devoted fan bc and cg, I love your sense of humor and writing style and just wish I could be half that good some day. lol
Do you still run into the one who got you bannde from the forums or has this person dsiappeared?
Nobody gets the Cabin Girl banned, I got myself banned but hey I am back aint I, do you know why, because unlike that wimp BadCo I dont take any crap.
Thank you for your replies, I guess Fiery was right after all I have lost the respect.
*HUGS* I will never stop respecting you. YOu have helped me and you make me laugh and smile. I love ya for that, BC. you have good qualities that make a good friend. You and CG.
"Love yer hubs Ryan, you keep the faith my friend. I worked out a month ago that you wont please everyone but you can outlast half the buggers. A lot that pissed me off 2 months ago are gone and it will be the same in 2 months time. They come and go but we my friend will steal the cream, keep writing ok and dont ever let anyone steal yer fun on the forums!"
-BadCompany99 (about 3 weeks ago)
Replace 'Ryan' with 'BadCompany99'..... looks like you just need to use your own words of wisdom mate
you haven't lost my respect. a few others probably have, but not you or cg.
I really hope you don't leave. As I've told you before, you can always make me smile and or laugh, and there are days when that's all I have. Sometimes just reading your comments on your hubs to other people is extremely entertaining. And that's why i'm here, to be entertained and hopefully entertaining to someone else, to try my hand at writing and to meet people.
I find it ironic that you posted this.
This is a little too out there for me, badcompany. But hey what the hell do I know? You can unfan me after this post. Business is business.
Not a lot by the sounds of things.
Who the f*ck are you to tell somebody whether or not they are allowed to be your fan? You only have 48, kicking somebody when they are down is no way to reach 49.
Completely agree with you and with crazdwriter.
I think you must have miss read IE. I didn't read it like that all. So why don't you read read it. She has a ton of respect for badco. But even badco knows he is a little out there sometimes. I think what she was trying to say, is that she understood IF BADCO wants to unfan her, because she found it ironic that HE was writing about respect on the forums. I think some of you owe her an apology, and try learning her and bad's forum relationship for christsake instead of hating her for loving him!
Shows me that you don't respect him so you deserve no respect. Definitely WON"T be fanning you
Quite opposite really! I'm his number one fan, thank you. But I always seem to be riding his ass, and don't mean too. So if he is tired of it, I completely understand.
And about YOU not fanning me, I would not want a person so fair weathered as you. Nice jump to assumptions. peace. Don't ever read anything I write. I would find that to be offensive, from such a narrow minded individual. Just to let you know.
Number 1 fan my a*se.
Anybody that mentions the word 'business' when human emotion is involved is quite clearly a shallow individual.
But I understand, get back to plugging your 3 Amazon shops, you have no time for empathy or understanding.
How does that saying go? Sticks and stones may break my bones bur names will never hurt me. call me what you want. i don't care. I am here for BC as you have proven you are not. So run along child and go play somewhere else.
LOL Went to check if I am a fan of IE or not. I am, and gonna stay there
For what reason? Because you like her writing, or because you have issues with BC?
Dude, she sent him her personal address and cell phone number reaching out to him in the forums for the world to see, you asshole. They had to snipe it. I too find it ironic that Badco is talking about respect issues in the forums, just as I'm sure he would find it ironic of me.
YOU are totally out of line here. Crazy- u too. TOTALLY OUT OF LINE!
It's CRAZD get it right if you are ever going to address me
You are assuming that I knew about that incident and I didnt. I dont think that makes me an arsehole, uninformed maybe, but I have absolutely no idea what you are talking about.
Maybe you could have simply explained that situation, and I could have made a judgement - maybe even apologise if necessary.
Really, before or after you told HER to fuck off.
Bullshit. You clean up the mess.
No I didnt know anything about it. All I could see is my mate BadCompany99 upset, and somebody not being very sympathetic. If I become aware of a good reason for them not to be sympathetic, then maybe I would change my opinion.
There is no mess to clean up RKHenry, unless you took your time to explain this situation.
Looks like one big unfanning session doesnt it. I backed your corner just over a week or so ago, left you a nice fan message, got no appreciation for that. It looks like I have got right in the middle of something that I dont understand.
Oh my RK- thanks friend. It's all good. If shamelobush(sp.sorry), ryan, crazd(is that right?) hate me, don't like me, want to lash out me; fine if it makes them feel better.
I do want to thank you my friend. You are such a "real" person, and I'm honored you call me friend. But don't fight these people on my be half darlin', we all cannot be sweating the small stuff.
And Misha, it is a rare occasion to see you and RK on the same side. I'm glad it is on my side. Thank you. I'll leave the rest of this thread to badco99.
Yes thank you for saying my name right...and sorry for lashing out at you. I was wrong to have done that and again sorry but to me it seemed like you were being rude to BC and he was really down in the dumps. I read it wrong and I do apologize for that.
By the way nice nickname and where did you get your pic from? it's interesting...is that really a blow up doll
Yeah it is a blow up doll. I found it online.
Thank you, but....
You know, it is okay for others to be real with somebody you might like Crazd. Rude or not, I said nothing derogatory towards badcompany99 to warrant your post. But again, I understand that you went to his defense. I would have understood your aggression better, if I would have said he was worthless or something like that. But hey, I mean bad knows his history here on the hubpage forum. And well, him writing a post about respecting others; please- that is incredibly ironic. And HE knows it is, and if he really cared about the integrity of this thread of his, HE would tell you that himself.
I've been around the block a time or two. Badco is reaching out in help. That is all fine and well. He knows I'm here for him, but Crazd I don't sugar coat things for bad, nor do I play make believe with him. And to some, and to him I'm sure it appears that I'm riding his ass all the time. Because I care for this writer, I want the best and I truly don't mean to be knocking heads with him. But it is my personal feelings, that someone has to be real with this person. Not saying you aren't, and maybe I'm off base- but yes, I've reached out to badco99 and when they are ready or need my help, I'll be the first one there. So what I was trying to say is that, BADCO if you want to unfan me, I understand. I'm okay with that.
Now what I should have finished with is; "Because it makes no difference to me, I'll still be your fan."
Now is that better?
Badco, I've very sorry for the mix up. I'll stop responding to you and leave you alone. But know- I still except you to keep on producing YOUR great stuff. Because I love your writing style.
And that same reply applies to me does it? Or did my own apology not warrant a response?
Sorry my dear. You too. I thought you were still talking to RK. Don't worry about him, he is probably googling your name right this minute- I'm teasing.
He is cool. Hot headed, but cool. I think you would like him too if on better terms.
Nite, I'll have a beer for you too.
Well sorry again for the misunderstanding. Thats all that this was, two people thinking that they were sticking up for a friend - when perhaps on this occassion a defence was not necessary/required/appropriate. And then two people subsequently sticking up for their own friend.
Enjoy your beer, thats the main thing.... there is a real world out there
No, don't get me wrong IE!!!! i don't hate you and never will do. I just agreed with them that there should be no hatred or bad feelings about a fellow hubber...
Last night would be Thursday. It's BC's night of red wine???
In the matter of respect, which was the original question - when I read peoples replies to post, it gives me a little insight to who they are, some are downright rude and that gives me a first impression. Some of those posters are always rude, so I don't pay a bit of attention to them, nor do I care to run over and read their hubs. Some are fun loving, some are ditzy some are direct and to the point, and most are a combination of well thought out writers who like to have fun & debate a bit. I like to be blunt, but I don't want to come across as rude.
Oh yes, I knew it was Thursday, but I had no idea how crazy everyone was going to get!! I agree with you there, Jane, and I truly hope most people realize I am more ditzy although I am sure I have come across as rude. I feel everyone deserves some level of respect. Even if you dont agree with them. I think it is important to have self respect first.
Not sure exactly, think it was like that song again Dennise
yeah, I am soooooo glad I went to bed early on, and didnt run my foolish mouth....err, fingers?
awwwww. i know its silly, but I know that behind every single misspelled word out there, is a human being.They are living, and all have thier own stories. Some are insecure and truly will care what they read, and can actually have thier feelings hurt. And I would feel so so so awful if anything I ever stupidly typed actaully had the abillity to cause anyone unhappiness.
Don't forget to defan me as well Misha. I already have done that to you because of your crude remarks.
Went to check if I am a fan of Misha. Quit his club
Which isn't really much of a loss anyway, considering he never writes any hubs and uses this forum and widespread fanning as a means of driving traffic to his other activities.
How Ironic this is about respect and already people have shown me that they don't desrve respect espcially from me. sad sad
To be honest, no maybe one day we will find something in common - but for now, nope.
Im not sure what the 'sides' are though. I am genuinely slightly confused, you realise that I never read the BC and CG threads right?
I would say that I sit firmly in the middle. Perhaps if somebody could link to the thread I can have an opinion.
Yeah Misha, we are always on totally opposite sides. But I know what IE has done for Badco., or rather how she has lovingly reached out to him. I was on the forums that day, they are so off base. You know, she is a good person. She's made her mistakes, and you know they have NO right to JUDGE her like that....
I've said my peace. I just feel bad for her right now.
Same applies though Misha, we are never on the same side
RKHenry don't even use my name in your posts anymore. You are not worthy to address me.
CRAZY D CRAZD
What the f' are you gonna do? Report me? Shall I report your hate towards IE? Just admit it, YOU were wrong! Apologize for christsake, she deserves it. And you are NOT welcomed in my corner EVER! Worthless, that's the first word that to mind. Worthless Crzy, crazy,
RKHenry, neither me or Crazdwriter have any idea what you are talking about in relation to IE and BC.
Im sure that if you could link to, or explain, the situation.... then we would be open to the possibility of apologising.
As things stand, you are assuming that I have read exactly the same things as you. Which I clearly havent.
Go under my posts if you want to find out about my feelings towards badco. It is always a good idea to do that anyway- before you start telling someone like myself, or anyone to f'off, or that you ain't gonna never..., and stupid stuff like that. But hey, I think what you were trying to tell me through your aggression is that YOU were basically defending him- Defending him for "horrible" me apparently!! Well, as his number one fan and if somebody said badco99 was a horrible writer, I'd jump to his defense too. Just like RK, jumped to mine.
Thank you. It has not been a pleasure interacting with you Ryan, or Crazd. But hey, that's ok! The world is a large place, I'm sure we all can exist here together in harmony.
PS)I'm the type of person who feels if you have to told to apologize for being out of line, then DON"T do so. Thanks,RK but I don't want it, nor would I accept it. It would have been fake. Who wants that?
It seems that there may be good reason for you to be upset with BC, although your very defensive friends dont seem to be willing to explain that reason. If there is good reason, which I must again emphasise I am in no way aware of, then I apologise for the way that I responded to your message.
I am sure that you can appreciate that your response, from the perspective of somebody that was not aware of the history, did not seem justified upon reading. I still do feel that your friends Mischa and RKHenry - like you - could perhaps appreciate that me and Crazdwriter were genuinely not aware of those circumstances.
I am guilty of assumption in no greater fashion than those that were quick to defend you. Perhaps it would have been beneficial if, when posting on a public forum, you wrote the post with an awareness that the vast majority of hubpages 88000 members would not know what you were talking about.
I have no idea how to go 'under your posts'.
BC...are you still on? just want to hear or read that you are okay.
I treat all of my fellow hubbers with contempt equally (and this thread has escalated into a perfect example of why)
Most of my fans have come from people on ‘fanning’ sprees, so nope I don’t usually notice when they leave. There are hubbers I like and hubbers I loathe, but ultimately none of you are any more to me than words on a screen, and although sometimes those words are interesting, funny, clever, etc. I certainly hold no emotional attachment, sorry.
Ryan I keep getting mail about you posting new hubs...slow down lol I can't read THAT fast lmao
You dont need to read them, they arent all that good yet
And plus... I dont read too many myself, so I wont have to feel too guilty
bc i do not think you are being judgemental as you can only make decission on your fans based on your own life experiences in dealing with people. Some people on here will argue just for the fun of it, to irratete peolpe and others become fans just for the hits. and some just read your hubs but do not comment but give it a thumbs up . So i do not delete a fan for that reason. the only time I do that is if the fan is truely arragant and keeps the bad behavour up then i will unfan them and delete them off my fan list. saying that I have no problems with you I have only found you to be very nice to chat with you can be very funny and at the same time we can have a very good conversation with you and I find your hubs very interesting I might not leave feed back but i do give it the thumbs up. So if i was you I would just leave them be dont defan them but only do that if they keep giving you problems. but that is the way is see it and i respect it if you see it different from me .
Well its nice to see everyones been playing nicely while Ive been away
Ok who needs spanking?
WT ? I just scrolled all the wayyyy back...hmmm
Hmm..lemme see chivalary is alive n kicking I see ,tad over the top ,guess I hit happy hour.
How you doin Crazydwriter ,hangin in there ,quite the baptism of fire there huh
And who the hell gave CG a gun? ,listen darlin ya not in the U.S of A so put that thing down y'hear.
I apologzied for jumping the gun, one of my faults. if she doesn't except then that's on her.
And please don't add the y...my name is crazd not crazy. I hate that.
Spose this a bad time to ask where might be a good place to get some free pics?
I know Ron always has really good ones You'll have to ask him. I think he posted it once but i can't remember for the life of me WHERE lol
that works for me CW is easier anyways lol
gotta luvs that Thursday night stew...hmmmmm
or is it fiery hot chilli tonight??
goodnight ! xx
we should since everyone got bored and most of them left the forum already...
Shame, I'm off to have a beer- wish I could join you on the beach. Great pic. Nite
Hey if Badco lived down my street ,I wouldnt tell him to write , Id just probably sit on his porch and have a good ole laugh at life
Hes a big boy , he signed up all by him/herself, he knows who likes him an who dont
( and hes gonna be the one with the headache an not me -Im happy bout that )hehe...
Im not so sure that you would want to sit on a porch in Belfast drinking, not least because the weather is normally crap.... and most people dont have porches.
Im sure that he would let you into his house anyway eaglewiki, your not that bad.
No porch ? they did in Angela's ashes ok well front step , and whats a bit of rain between friends eh...you too Ryan, you could be John Cleese
eaglekiwi youre not that bad >>> pokes tongue at ya , spose being a Brit ,you might find it hard to keep up with this Kiwi , but hey it be a laugh tryin
I think that is what threw me IE...you told him to unfan you after that post. Instead of saying that you were there for him even if he is posting something ironic wouldn't have gotten to me like the other comment did.
So again sorry for jumping the gun...again one of my human faults.
I'll do my best to ask before I leap next time. and yes it is okay to being real with someone.
Nice to meet you. I'm off to have a beer with Shame on the beach, only if I knew what beach that was.....
But nite all.
lol you all can hang out on the beach. I am one of thos weird Cali girls who hates the beach. I know sad ain't it? lol
Have a beer for me too. lol
First, it's Shamel...
Second, it's Jumairah Beach in Dubai... we had good time that day...
Since we all had satisfying conclusions to our problems, good night everyone...
Crikey BC - you sure stirred up a hornets nest with this one.
10 pages in 3 hours or so!
Just goes to show that there's plenty of mileage still left in the never ending antics of the BC/CG tagteam!
And no, I haven't stopped reading posts from hubbers.
And I don't really notice if anyone stops reading my hubs.
How the heck would I be able to tell anyway ???
Cheers, Eric G.
Seems it's been brought to life again, jeeeez ya gotta love an entertainer, doncha think
Totally agree with the self respect thing and everybody's ideas can be so different.
Also I think we all tend to bounce of one another or connect here n there ,and then factor in personality clashes , ego's , moods and woohooooo the parties on or the boo hooo's.
But I managed to kick procrastination out the window and get a hub done, finally.
Whatever did we do before the internet!
Of course he's not, he's writing a new hub about his boring new massage chair, the guys a real tosser. I only stay with him because of our spilt personality
and are you writing anything? I havent been able to get around here much, but..Im off to get a new computer in about an hour, so...hopefully Ill get more done. I have a split personality at times, right now my other half is in bed, sleeping off this headache....
I just published a new one 5 minutes ago, I consider it my best so far, much better than BadCos rubbish !
I am going to try to read it, then I have stuff to do besides time wasting, I will try to stop by again to see the fireworks later.
pmsl? translate please. Hey CG, you want a loaded gun, can provide you one .
HAHAHAHAHHAHAH at first I thought that said ...pms....I was sooooo confused. I sat here staring at that for like, 2 minutes....oh my..thats funny.

I was just wondering why foul language (obscene language, profanity, cursing, swearing, expletives, bad words, dirty words) is being tolerated in certain cases, and in the case of certain individuals. It is especially embarrassing when it comes from a woman. Should she not be counselled by a...

I won't name the hubber who I am talking about, many of you will know them though and many I'm sure will have a problem with what I am about to say.Every few weeks (although I am not a follower) I get a new hub about the "100 best thing about childrens smiles" or pathetic fan letters,...

There is someting that stuck for me. My hubber/author score is still much poor. How to increase the author score? Do you have some useful tips?Thanks！
by Crusader 14 years ago
This system of hubber scoring is really disgusting. Hubbers posting hubs are assigned low hubber score for several reasons but hubbers without publishing a single hub are participating in forums and have hubber scores of >80. Is it enough to post a adult photograph in profile to get assigned a...

Have YOU ever wondered why CERTAIN PEOPLE have joined Hubpages? Of course, theoverwhelming of people on Hubpages are wonderful, highly intelligent, fierce, and totally awesome. However, there are OTHER kinds of people. Well, I am just going to leave it at that! ...
by IzzyM 13 years ago
First of, I don't really know what I'm talking about, or to be more specific, I don't know the name of what I am talking about.But thanks to a few hubbers on here, I have taken to backlinking the easy way. You backlink a hub to...for example...shetoldme...or blurbalicious...one of them anyway.Then...
