I have officially written something that offended someone enough to receive hate mail. Woot! I am real Hubber now.
Like Greg Norman said in an Interview once:
"If you p--s somewone off, make them mad? Your probably doing something right!....lol
and it only took you two years
i am surpised i haven't gotten any, heh...
I got one myself ... 2 months ago ... haven't got one since.
To be honest Sandra, I think someone mistyped a name, 'cause I could never imagine anyone sending you any hate mail.
I'm still your fan, so all is good.
Congrats I have had about 2 plus 3 marriage offers from Indian girls
I do not know how hubs can be offensive, now the forums I understand
Mark that sounds like the voice of experience. Can you tell me why I have missed this honor? I have been rude to people on the forums, yet I get no credo.
Nice to see you.
What you need to do is write a hub that proves g** does not exist. This makes them "turn the other cheek" so badly, they feel the need to write and tell you how much they pity you and "love" you.
Nice to see you too. I was banned for a 3rd time for explaining to one of the trolls that if they bought a dictionary, they would then learn the meaning of the words they insist on misusing. This is a "personal attack" apparently. Odd that. I think I may have a few people report me every time I say something to one of the trolls or religionists. I believe this is what they call "love."
I love religious love, it is so conditional!
This is very true, Mark. You can't really "poke holes" in people's ARGUMENTS, at least in the forums, anymore. I think their definition of "personal attack" needs to be a little more defined, to say the least.
Ha ha I am jealous I guess I will have to become a little more active in seeking my very own stalker.
I can't imagine that. NOT YOU?
How bad does it have to be to qualify as "hate mail"? Not sure if I got any yet. I did get some not-so-nice ones, but that's about it.
Did they use profanity (too)?
Oh, I think I should clarify. I meant comment. It called it mail because I got the notice in my email.
It was long enough to be considered a novel letter though. But you can read it.
And it kept going too.
Congrats Sandra.Your 2 years of hard work finally paid off...
Wow lucky you did you send something terrible back to them. I would.
I wrote about a fraudulent company http://hubpages.com/hub/Pre-Paid-Legal- … Is-A-Fraud
I got people affiliated with their companies top dogs barking.
Ok, I'm curious. What's the title of the Article? LOL. Congratulations! I received a negative comment once and disapproved it. Does that count? LOL
Awww, I've never received any hate mail. Does that mean I'm not a real hubber? Just kidding, of course. I don't want any.
Congrats, Sandy....sort of.
did you all here something?
I think it was a bell.
I got here 5 weeks ago and had hate mail in my 3rd week.
ohh, class dismissed.
Glad that you know how to take it. I have never seen anything that is hateful in you, so its a little surprising to read someone would take the time to actually send you a hate mail. And err... I guess I should be adding my congrats.
Oh well done Sandra! That will teach you not to speak your mind. (not! )
Sandra...you'te too lovely to receive hate mail...surely there is some mistake...pylos
I Hate that you got that!!! I only get abused by some cat!
aaaahhh, I remember my first, that was a good feeling.
Sounds like you wrote a Hub that hit somebody's sore spot.
We always like your hubs because they are original and never bland.
You never can tell what will trigger hate mail. Pat writes a blog about her clothes and recently got hate mail about her shoes!
Since everyone seems to think congratulations are in order, I'll add mine. Congratulations,Sandra!
In a way it really is a testament to your writing that you incited someone that much! MM
Okay, so which do you prefer? Hate mail or proposals from Indian girls?? You definitely have the right attitude! I'd probably just cry.
Congrats (I think) Sandra. Maybe you received it by mistake? Can't imagine you receiving one. You're a very nice person. I'm sure it's a mistake .
Sandra, I got a nasty message already at 4 months - what kind of indication is this for the future? Yikes,but bad mail is better than no ail- whoever wrote that was a wanker!
So what's the right move do you respond to wankers or move on, no matter how mad I get?
I had a furious comment over a 3 minute microwave recipe.
There are some crazy people out there!
Welcome to the club!
It was only two days after I put up my current picture that I had an Indian guy fan me just to be able to send me a message telling me that I was going to cause my family and I to burn in hell for posting such a picture, and that I should be banned for forcing other people to have to look at in the forums.
Wow! I'm jealous! I was sure if anyone read my stuff, someone would be offended enough to send me some hate mail, or at least some creepy stalker mail! Oh well! I guess I'll have to try harder.
Hey, congrats Princessa!
I haven't gotten hate mail yet, but I've certainly gotten lots of hateful comments left on hubs.
I did receive my first really friendly email comment last week though. Someone found one of my hubs on another account very useful and actually took the time to write me an email. It made my day!
But have you been proposed to yet? Then you know you have made it big time LOL.
I don't have any hate mail yet, oh wait or any good mail either. However I became a ralwus fan, and he in turn became mine and I am not sure but I feel obligated to take a nude picture of myself laying in the grass with my hat on just to commemorate the moment.
Problem with that is if I put it in my profile I will induce more hate mail than good mail as well as uncontrollable vomiting internet wide.
ok...before reading this thread, I was perfectly happy just having fans. now i feel DEPRIVED!
lol....ive never had any...in fact i get the opposite...u know the ones where they take one look at u without reading a single blog of yours and decide u're the woman for them! THAT is a nuisance of its kind too...
You mean you've written something? I'm still busy photoshopping me into that gorgous picture of you
yeah...that was quite close.... (still laughing)...
after a while, they all do sound the same though...!
I have never received a hate mail and wont pray for one, but all the same congrats Sandra!
I think Hubpages should post a new stat on our profiles:
"Hate Mailed Received." and then weigh this number to raise our scores. ;^P
Sandra, I read it out of curiosity. Very impressive. I particularly liked the comment thrown in about how you try to convince people not to believe in God.
I have one Hub that brought a "Hub Lynch Mob" when people either didn't get, or pretended not to get, the message of the Hub. None of them were anywhere near as long as your hate-comment was, though.
Then there's a Hub I did that simply answered a request about whether neat freaks "have personality disorders". I essentially said that there is such a thing as a neat freak who just prefers to be neat and clean but who doesn't have OCD. Well - that one brought obscenities, as well as accusations that I am "seriously mentally ill". (I'm assuming it was messy people whose buttons I pushed. )
Oh - and then there have been a few "clever geniuses" who have accused me of working for companies (or else their competitors) whose products I wrote about (just because I happen to have the products and thought I may as well write about them. I just stopped answering those because it was getting to be a full-time job.
You never know where the hate will come from (some of the most stupid stuff); but the people who write it are usually unreasonable enough that it can be fun to poke holes in everything they say.
Congrats Sandra...I got hate mail the second or third day I signed up. Some jerk telling me that I shouldn't volunteer at Cats In Need because they are accosiated with PetSmart and blah blah blah! lmao

I've been watching my numbers the past few days and tonight I finally made more than one million page views! I've been here just over 5 years and almost lost the whole site in the summer of 2014. It's been a long crawl back, but with the help and advice of other hubbers, the...

Okay, this forum is for the newbies out there who seem to dim their light for Hubpages. After 1 year and one month. I got paid on Hubpages and it is very fulfilling. Don't over react my friend for I accumulated my earnings for 5 months since my adsense account got approved after 8 months of stay...

I'm so excited! My Adsense has finally reached $100 after two years! Yey! I better write more hubs if I want my next payout in less than two years, huh? Hehe!
