Comments like these sure put a damper on things... You want to comment back, but know there's no point because the person isn't coming back for more. Plus, why instigate more hatred on yourself?
Just laugh at them !
I got some real nasty ones fron a hubber on one of my hubs. I think it's so pathetic ,that I replied and laughed at it ! Really !! Someone losing his time at it !
aw piss on em don't let it bother you, if you do then they are getting what they are after and getting mad wanting to get back at the idiot just stoops you to their level just laugh at the idiot and go on with life
Oh thats bad...geeezzz, why can we be all civilized here...
What a horrible comment. I can't understand who someone would do that. What an ass.
Never argue with an idiot. He'll drag you down to his level and beat you with experience!
Whoa. That's just... whoa. I'm so sorry that happened to you. Sometimes I fear for humanity.
What a disgusting comment! I would say try to ignore it but I am not sure I could if I got that message. I guess I can say, don't sweat it, you are an awsome hubber with a 100 perfect score and must be make a few bucks here n there! This person must be jealous of your hard won success, probably to lazy to go out there and work for success themselves so insults those who do instead!
that certianly does suck. Im hoping you dont let it really get to you. What a looser!!
Comments like that are to be deleted and the poster ignored. There's nothing else that can be done. Evil exists and we need it so that we may know and appreciate goodness!
Oh yea this was on one of my hubs. I just spammed it and moved on... Just kinda put a damper on things, but at the same time also has motivated me a little to just write me.
I do have a "real" job besides answering the questions of little 15 year old boys. So this kid can kiss my butt, but dangit if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.
Oh dear, sounds like someone is having a bad day and decided to take it out on you.
I wonder if that person was born a total arse or just decided to become one.
That is particularly vile - you are doing the right thing by using it to drive you onwards.
It says much more about them than it does about you - they obviously have some serious issues
*hugs* don't let it get to ya People can be real stupid jerks some times.
Let me guess the gutless wonder didn't even bother signing in. Delete and move on. Don't waste your time on wondering why...Definitely use it to motivate you in a positive way!
Reading the comment it's for sure He liked your hub but may be jealous of your such good article ..... and your success .....
I'm forming up an angry mob to burn down his hubpages account. I don't know who it is but it's natural to assume it's a guy.
That comment is just so stupid it isn't worth giving a half-second of thought to. The "phenomenon" of people who make those comments, though, may deserve a few lines:
I do "love" (sarcasm), though, how these pea-brains think they have you all figured out in their damaged little imaginations, and then how they're so sure they're right they're stupid enough to post their wild guesses about things like whether you have a life or a job. They don't even have the reasoning ability to know that by posting their "imaginings" and guesses about you they're showing the world how worthless their words are, and how pea-brained they are. Sharp people know not to say anything unless they know it for sure, based on what they have seen - not what they've imagined. When I get those comments (provided they don't have unacceptable words in them, as the one you got did), I do leave the comments up; and then use my own verbal skills to humiliate them with, I hope, great flair.
when it is on someone elses hub it is easy to say don't get upset, but if it were on mine i would probably take it to heart. Thankfully people like that on here are so few and far between
Just brush it off as some ass that has nothing better to do with their life or has no life.
I know one thing,sometimes the more I know people the better I like my pets.
I've already had a few disgusting ones and I'm still pretty new here.
The consolation for me is to actually imagine what kind of life that person really leads. I mean, really, is there any intelligence level there, and doesn't it just feel like they are leeching off anyone who has something they want? I think they spend a lot of time mocking and making fun of anyone who knows how to bring any real happiness and success to themselves. If that's the case, they are as annoying and useless as houseflies. They don't last long, once the summer is gone.
At least it seems that way to me.
I was told by the lady that introduced me to HP, that until you get your first hate mail you are not a good writer.
So, Congrats Whitney05! You are now officially a great writer and you have the Hubscore to prove it.
She also said, "You empower yourself by not dwelling on it. Just delete it and keep moving forward, doing what you are doing."
Thanks but this definitely isn't my first hate mail by any means.
why would u get hate mail???
people are so strange and juvenile online~~ today I lost a fan (unless Bad Co deleted his account again)
why? because I look like a vampire for halloween?
Like I said before - a lot of people do get hate mail. People are irrational and wrapped up in their own self-importance. If they think people are wrong they never say it to their faces. Oh no, they email them knowing that they will never have to confront people they slag off online.
What a jerk! I'm sorry you got something like that Whitney...i would have emailed that comment and the name to the hubteam and see if they could delete the jerk. Was it a hubber?
don't give it any more energy - that's what he/she wants
There are people on the internet who live for this. If you think about it, that's just so pathetic. I mean wht kind of person gets off on something so lame and ugly? Sadly there's no way around it--If you write online, you get this kind of sludge.
This one wasn't ugly like the one Whitney got, but just yesterday someone wrote a comment on a Hub I have about "the Santa lie". I based my thoughts on when my own kids were little and the way my husband and I went with the Santa thing. It was about the "magic" of believing in Santa (but I know there are people who disagree with what I said - that's fine, and I wouldn't mind opposing views). With the opposing view, however, the apparently bitter person wrote some nutty thing about how my "boyfriend" didn't believe in the "magic". Huh?????? What boyfriend??? You don't even know where this stuff comes from! (alcohol, maybe?)
Well we can see one thing from this - the person who left it has no idea how to spell.
We all get hate mail at some point - usually from some jackass who thinks that they are smarter than you are. Usually it is easy to prove them wrong.
Rest in the assurance that we all have your back love.
I'm sorry you were subjected to that. That's totally uncalled for.
What a loser and just nothing but a attention whore and want you to fight with them. Don't stoop to their level!! I'm sorry this happen to you.
what a tosser. Glad most people on hp are a bit more sensitive that that.
To date you have had over 30 positive posts here, I hope they act like a great big rubber and erase any hurt that this person left with you...
Bright Blessings a wink and a smile, just for you...;D
Sadly some people get you confussed with them selves . It's sad realy, they come to these sites and post ugly comments saying we have no life etc etc ,when in reality they are sitting there POSTING COMMENTS all day .That makes them the one with no life in my book .
It is hard to ignore cause we are real people with real feelings and here is some person setting out to make sure you fell the ugly coming off of them. But remember they only say those things to make themselves feel better by putting others down. Someone needs to remember that highschool tactics are realy pathetic.
Lots of meanies in the world ,but more of us loving people.
Big Hug to you and a wagging finger to the ugly commenter -.-
So did you APPROVE that comment? I am just curious since you saw fit to print it here in a forum.
Does the poster not know that this is an 18 and over site? How would 15 year-old boys ask you questions anyway?
Whitney, why would you empower such a rude person by giving them attention from reproducing their comment in the forums?
Don't worry Whitney, I have it too. What's funny is that they work in the same field as I do and got the wrong message.
Oh grow up it's nothing but some silly kids comment, do you people live in the real world or a plastic bubble, get over it Whitney !

How do you react to a sarcastic comment on your hub?I recently went back to read the replys to a comment on a hub, and the person who I usually follow a lot was really sarcastic! I just sat there looking at it and thought, okay, now what? So what would you do? reply? don't follow them again, or...

What subject and topic of YOUR hubs garner the most Vs-vitriolic, venomous, and vituperative responses- from other hubbers and mostly guests who read your hubs? Yes, there are THOSE among us who write on topics and subjects which bring out the VENOM as far as responses go. When people read...

I am still unsure of the etiquette/protocol regarding whether or not to respond to comments made on articles that I have written. On the one hand it seems rude not to acknowledge comments but, on the other hand, if there is nothing to write other than a thank you note it seems pointless. I think it...

I've been seeing a number of what I call "promotional" comments lately from new users. They're not negative and actually read quite well. However, at the end of the comment, there's a "I love this (whatever)" with a link. I'm sure not clicking the link AND I'm denying all the...
