    Have you ever received hostile comments because of the content of one of your hubs?

    If so, how did you deal with it?

    I don't think it was hostile as much as it was disapproving on a hub I wrote about saving money.  I just deleted it.  In a perfect world everyone has a right to their opinion but I prefer to keep things positive so I ignored it and deleted.  I like to go with that sage old advice from the Bambi movie--"if you can't say something nice don't say anything at all."  I believe Thumper said that....very wise for a rabbit.

    If someone leaves a hostile or disapproving statement on my hub I just leave it because everyone is entitled to their opinion ... but it still kind of hurts.

    If someone leaves a comment that opposes my opinion on a hub, whether hostile or not, as long they explain themselves and can back themselves up I leave it. It's good for discussion and looking at the other side of things is always good. However, general comments like "You're wrong blah blah" I just delete. I've gotten a few of those on my Mac is better than PC and my Lady Gaga is over hub. Basically if someone is hostile with reason I understand, otherwise I don't see the point of keeping their comments up.

    No, I have not, but maybe that is because I had only written one hub before:P

    Anyways, if someone leaves a hostile comment on one of your hubs, ignore it. Yes, I agree that individuals should be entitled to their own opinions, but to some extent. If the comment is a nicely written, argumentative piece meant to simply share the opposing opinion of one, the author of the comment has a right to do so. But if the commentator leaves a so-called "hostile" comment entwined with swearing, discriminating, inappropriate, etc hints, he or she should not be allowed to do so. You, however, cannot do anything about the intentions of others, so I suggest simply deleting the comment and ignoring him/her, because associating with such rude, unworthy jerks will not bring any good. Remember, you have your opinion, too. Don't let them bring you down.

    Good luck! And hope your comment box fills with friendly notes. smile

    It's funny you should say that I wrote a whole hub on someone whose comment wasn't all so nice. It's fine to leave advice but we need to care for others feelings if you don't agree well you have a right to your opinion but don't be such a poopsy. Out of curiosity what was said ???

    I haven't. Yet. I know that people  will disagree with you. But there is a difference between trolls who just want to get you angry and people who truly disagree with you  but are respectful. The latter comments must remain on your hubs  or you lose credibility by deleting them. But plain hostility  should be deleted.

    On my 'Call of Duty: Black Ops Review' I got someone called 'Egor' saying that my review was rubbish and that "in the old school we did this for real" - meaning he shot people for real. I was quite...confused by his response. Don't know if it meant to be hostile or a joke.

    Once I received a harsh comment but not a hostile one. Though it was not necessary to defend my self I tried to clarify. Interestingly fellow hubbers appreciatively supported my writing.
