    Pacal Votanposted 9 years ago

    I've just discovered that someone had been dishonest with me here. I know this because I saw him brag about it in a hub. My question is: should I quit his fanclub and kick him out of mine? Because I'm not a fan of this person any more and also know that he has never been a real fan of mine.



    Please, tell me your opinion.

      I hope you don't mean my hub Pacal because it was just a taking the piss Hub, anyone I do fan is because I enjoy their writing or like the persons humor within the forums. I have deff always been a genuine fan, when I wrote that hub for a laugh I actually worried a few of my fans might take it the wrong way, anyway I do hope it wasn't my hub, if it was let me know and I will delete it !

          Don't delete it!  It is too funny... Besides it's how GT got his fans.  He was very helpful to the new comer.  smile

      Pacal, you know, you're really well liked here.  I don't know who the person is or what happened and can understand you don't want to get too specific with the details, but honestly, people really, really like you here.  Don't let one nasty piece of work change your life in any way.  Keep doing what you want to do.  Do what you like to do.  Look at all the fans you have!  If there was one insincere person who did something rotten and dishonest, there are a couple hundred people out here who like your presence, your voice, your style and your sense of humour.  sad

    You can't kick someone out of your fan club.  You can only deny their fan mail.

    And if you don't feel like a fan of that person, why would you stay in their fan club?

      Thanks, relache. If only it was that simple... neutral

      I'll never post to the forum again. And I'll never read idiots' hubs.

        Please don't let less-than-tactful responses run you off Pacal!

        I would un-fan the guy, and hope he does the same to you, so you won't have to deal with him anymore!

        Don't let a bad apple ruin your experience on HubPages...sad

        I would remove him from your fan list. I would not let it keep you from posting in forums ~~ just pick and choose a little better. It is simple.

    Hello, Pascal.

       Sorry to hear that. Who needs Fans? Please just
       dismiss him/her. Enjoy Hubbing, and continue posting to
       the forums.

    Remove him immedietaly. And you can ask him to defan yuo as well but you can't defan him yourself sadly. That should be a new feature I think.

    N-e-ways don't leave because of the one idiot, Pacal. You still have many mor real fans ehre who would miss you

    Ivorwenposted 9 years ago

    Seriously, don't worry about it.  90% of the people who fan you are not genuine fans -- not the kind who are going to read every word you write with interest.  Maybe something you said sparked their curiosity.  Maybe they think they would like to read an article or two of yours in the near future.  Does it really matter?  If you do not enjoy the persons writing, unfan them!  Getting your feelings hurt over a fan or two is silly.
