Do the forums seem depressing to anyone else?
I love Q&A, but the forums don't make me feel very confident or enthusiastic. Has anyone else noticed this trend or am I just not giving it enough of a try?
You know, I often don't read all the responses to a topic or question because most people come into the forum wanting to reinforce their beliefs, rather than change them. So I just put in my two cents and move on. I used to feel depressed after reading all the comments.
The forums are not too bad now. You should have seen how it was after the big G Panda rolled out and when Hubpages changed to subdomain last year. So much negativity in the forums and many old-time hubbers left HP.
During my first few months, I seldom made comments in the forums. Hubpages is a good site with lots of wonderful friendly helpful hubbers. However, there are also a few mean, self-centered, egotistical, self-righteous, all-knowing... did I mention mean? people here. I had been slapped with sarcasm like "Thank you for your lack of knowledge, Rosie." I was too naive to know that as a newbie, I should keep my mouth shut, as I knew squat! LOL
I play in the Sandpit. Play with us there. The mean people very seldom play there... it's probably beneath them being all-knowing and all.
Welcome to Hubpages, rmcleve!
Yes, all the arguing gets absolutely vicious.
But I have to admit I don't like the ability to comment on posted answers to these questions. Recently saw a question that had an answer (if an unpopular one), the person who asked the question posted a snide comment about the answer, then the person who asked the question posted a rebuttal.
Doesn't that seem sort of forum like? I don't care for it.
