    Just a thought.. why don't I ever read a bad reviews on here?

    Is it just considerate commenting or is the hubs really that good.. curious is all

    There are bad reviews here, just pray you don't come across one, i mean it. You may not find it funny at all.

    If I don't have anything positive to say, I just don't comment. I don't know if that's the right thing to do or not, but I don't feel comfortable criticizing others' work, so I just move on to something else if I don't like what I'm reading. I'm curious as to what others will say. :-)

    Careful what you ask for. I've seen some really horrible and unnecessary comments on a few hubs.

    I think this website has more of a supportive environment. If it's a low quality hub, just press thumb down, no need to attack the person.

    If I disagree with something someone has said on a hub I let them know by either messaging them or making a comment on the hub.

    Hubpages generally seems to be a happy family and more supportive in the sense of helping instead of criticizing. Although there are a few bad apples out there the atmosphere overall is a happy one.

    A while back, a friend told me he posted a message on Facebook. I asked him what did he post. He said rather proudly "Mark frying eggs and watching Soprano's". He got a few comments circling around the term "LOL". . . I think HP is a place for more creative people. There are some deep thinkers here, you read it in the writing, you see it in the photographs, you feel it in the poems. Because of this, I think HP is a community of creators and not destroyers. Even if there is a Hub that deserves a bad review, I feel that there was a creative effort put into it and that effort is appreciated by the readers. But your thought is interesting.

    I believe Hubs that are normally not very good, aren't read. People don't like to linger on a Hub that looks bad and is written bad, hence they don't stay to comment.

    Any Hub that is commented on is either well written or has good content in, either way it makes the reader want to say something about the Hub.

    I'm rather new to HubPages but most of the Hubs I have read are actually pretty good.  Comments are generally positive and not on the writing but more on the subject matter.  Most content writers are not professional writers but rather knowledgeable about their subject matter.  If a Hub is not passable, the Hub authorities will eventually find it and remove it with suggestions for improvement.

    Because people block negative comments from being posted to their pages.  I actually had a situation where I'd posted a comment that *disagreed* with the author, and he unpublished my comment.  It sparked me to write this hub:  http://faceless39.hubpages.com/hub/Why- … Viewpoints

    I thought the same thing a few months ago BUT not anymore. I've read a few, received a few mostly from the same person and left a few, but only in the nicest way:)

    I would be disappointed if my more complicated or important hubs didn't generate some criticism or disagreement.

    But I am far happier when I get kind and encouraging words.

    I've only had one negative comment in all the time I've been here, but it wasn't from a Hub member, just some random troll who'd apparently found my article via Google. I read it, laughed at it, and deleted it.

    HP community is supportive and helpful.  I think ultimately we're all in this for the same reason: to share what we know and to write to help others.
    I enjoy constructive criticism and think that sometimes there should be more of it. But I also think that positive feedback is so important that I'm glad that's a focus on HP.
    Messaging a person is always good if it is constructive feedback but if an article is bad then I just tend to skip it. Eventually poor writers just eliminate themselves anyway because it takes so much work to write that if you're not seeing results I don't think you would have much motivation to continue.

    I think new Hubbers might be too shy to say negative things, and more established Hubbers probably take the same kind of attitude I do:

    1.  if a Hub is really bad, I won't tell the Hubber, I'll just flag it and it will disappear. 

    2.  if a Hub is bad but  can be saved, I'll leave a comment suggesting improvements - but I'll always finish it by telling them to delete the comment once they've read it, as I don't mean it for public consumption (some people send the Hubber an email instead, but I prefer not to reveal my email address).

    3.  If it's an average Hub and there's nothing nice I can say about it, I won't say anything. 

    Finally, of course, Hubbers control what comments appear on their Hubs, and some probably just deny anything negative.
