    No, i didn’t face it. I even followed very experience hubbers and they followed me but i always got appreciating comments. I must appreciate hubbers for their true spirits and professionalism. Similarly I never criticize anybody, however sometimes I only add to the available information or just appreciate it.

    Thank you hub pages for providing us such a valueable platform to share our writing.

    I have not encountered any bullies on HP as well. I am following people whose hubs are interesting to me.

    Just like mariasial, i do not leave critizing comments on anybody's hub.

    At the end of the day, HP is a platform for sharing knowledge, experiences and for writers to expand their horizons. We are all matured adults in HP and should leave all bullying out as bullying is wrong culture, regardless if it is online or offline.

    Yes, there are quite a few in forums.  You should go to the forums to have a first hand experience.  I learned a lot in forums reading comments from other hubbers and get to know who are nice and helpful and who are mean and rude.  But hey, this is internet.  My son told me that there are "trolls" everywhere in the internet.  And HP is no exception.

    hey rosie, i have to agree with you. I had a first hand experience in forums and it opened me to the reality that hubpages is also home to rude bullies and trolls.

    And your son is correct! I have to agree with him. smile

    Luckily, I have not encountered bullies in HP so far.  I feel very fortunate in that regard.  Then again, it seems from what people are saying that this can be more of a problem in certain forum topics, and I'm not on the forums much at all.

    I wish bullies understood that everyone is entitled to their own opinion and that we can all state our ideas without being mean or rude!!

    No I have not but certainly have seen them at work on others. Especially those whose English skills may not reach as wide or deep as native speakers.

    Having said that, this is an English hub web portal but disrespectful degradation of others is not necessary.

    I don't think they even deserve to be called 'bullies' - I say that because all they've got is their cheap talk on the internet.

    They wouldn't talk to people like that in real life (probably not)

    You bet there are, in fact I had a hub on it for a long time, don't remember if it is still up or not but I am glad, I got rid of the idiots and could choose who I wanted.
