Why can't we block bullies and inappropriate people from our hubs and profiles?
set your comments section up to be approval only, then simply do not approve comments that are abusive. Constructive criticism is very helpful though.
The only place as far as I can tell that bullies are allowed to roam freely is on the forums and questions sections to a certain extent, you can flag them though.
My rule is "don't insult my Mother" and your comment and life are safe. I don't often get ridiculous comments, but I consider them something that I can have fun with in my reply. I think lemons should be made into lemonade.
i haven't experienced any bullying on here but i have answered questions where i'm betting the author wished i hadn't. i'm glad that all answers are visible because if we were to edit out any comment we didn't like then it would be useless to have the question in the first place.
Wesman's mom has got it goin' on!
I'm probably a huge perpetrator of this and possible part of the problem. No, wait, I'm pretty sure I'm a part of the problem. But in a way, also a part of the solution seeing there be method in my madness. Well, at least that's what we're going for, right other Bronson?
Yes, Bronson, that's right.
Good. Gemini twins out.
(There's a moderation filter in account settings. For continued offenders in the public area, use the flag option and give a cool, calm reply otherwise the emotional flavor of the complaint might hurt the moderator's ears and interfere with getting the desired moderation. I learned that the hard way)

When I go to respond to a comment on one of my hubs, I just put my response in the comment section od that particular hub. Later, if I go back to that hub, I can see everyone elses comments they have left, but not my own responses. I am afraid that the people who commented are not seeing my...

Why can't we leave comments when hopping hubs?With this new hopping system, If we are to use a scale, I would like to be able to explain my decisions and give suggestions.

On a number of hubs, I have comments from hubbers who no longer have a profile here. When I click on their names, a page comes up saying "Sorry that user no longer exists".I suppose these links aren't "dead" but they are very poor links to have on a hub. Might search engines...

The past few days I've received a number of comments on several different hubs. These comments have nothing to do with the hub although they are reasonably written. Each is from a different address and none are from hubbers.Only one has caused any real concern, when the poster advised...

Just wondering. So much ill will abounds in the forum, largely related to a couple of the sub forums. That aside, what would improve your hubpages experience? And no one can say 'shut down the forum' because we'd lose a principle platform for helping each other in many ways - not least the...
