Look through posted topics and you will find certain "people" who relish attacking the author rather than there posted topic.We all know who the are.what do you think of these people who knowingly drive beginners away from writing?
<snipped - no threatening language in the Forums>
Point out who's driving 'beginners' away from writing !
Very easy to accuse behind an avatar !
This is another original cheaptrick, it seems !
you can't fight fire with fire, if I see a personal attack, I report it, if it's someone being immature and showing off, I ignore their remark and answer the posters question or comment.
it's really pathetic some of the people who get their kicks running through the forums being stupid and arrogant.
You do what you believe is right don't let anyone turn you around. The religious forum is not a good cross-section of the hub pages, it usually represents the extremes. It does get mean spirited but religion sparks alot of emotion. There are those who attack any Christian for any reason just address the friendlies and don't reply to the antagonists. You'll never stop the arguing so if it is a big problem stay away from getting sucked in.
So putting someone out of their supposed misery , like a dog, Is right ??!!
who's the one full of missery here ?
another cheaptrick !
you people are way too funny !
You intentionally say things to start an argument. And you love it just like I do. Maybe Cheap was talkin about you instead of me. Ha!

Yes, we should just ignore the ones that mock or attack, but reply to those that criticize constructively. But generally, many are kind.... very kind even...
I think you ruined your whole point with the "hunt them down" "put them out of there [sic]misery" think. Are you even out there, or as Pearldiver said hit and run?
Yes and you posting a thread like this really makes people want to run and become your friend. "Should we hunt them down like the dogs that they are?" Are you serious? That was 100% rude. and you should be ashamed of saying BS like that and have Mary and Jesus up as your avatar!
What's unbelievable is that some hubbers think that she /he is right
Go figure !
You are NOT ALLOWED to say things like that with that avatar !
Holy Mary !!!
I think I qualify as one of the people you cant mentally keep up with. But since it't you that cant address my or others comments; why don't you just go away?
And you dont have to hunt me down. HERE I AM BABY! and now I'm watching YOU!!!
I believe that all of the writers who post topics on the forums regardless if they are positive or negative should always be prepared. There are also some who enjoy stirring the pot and when they do this unless they are diplomatic it can turn into a boxing ring. I don't believe anyone intentionally tries to push a new writer away, I also agree with everyone else write a hub about it I am certain that many will read it and respond. It is hard for someone like yourself to even discuss this topic when you have not written anything.
Why don't you write a hub about your 'pickle' so that you can relish making a relevant comment as an 'Author' rather than making impotent remarks yourself?
"Should we hunt them down like the dogs that they are and put them out of there misery?"
Have you ever noticed the poor quality of comments are often equal to poor quality of grammer?
How Sad that anyone would 'hunt down a Dog' - Cheap!
If You Get a Life; it will put you out of your misery!
Have you considered that point?
I've also seen this Odd style of writing apply to those who put spaces prior to (and after) a comma or a period or a question mark. No real comment is made and the mis-punctuation is a little distracting. Take away the absurd punctuation errors, the messages are nasty and just cruel. Just something I've noticed, that's all.
So harsh...Perhaps not everyone has the command of the language like yourself, our 'distinguished' critic. Or, PERHAPS, the author of this thread didn't have enough information to create a Hub...Either way, if you were unsatisfied with the topic, why the hell did you post? What point were you REALLY trying to make here?
Never mind debating anybody. Explain that idiotic, punk statment. You are not a stupid person. So what is your story. Thought I was trouble.
You are quite right,That"statement" was unnecessary to my point,it is understood locally as applying to people not dogs.Perhaps I should have said "Rabid dogs".I share my life(Notice I did not say OWN)with a lab(Bruno)and a pit bull(china)whom i Love dearly.My lesson here is Not using local stuff on an international site.My sincere Apologys to you all.Your name calling includes You in the Narrow minded club.you could have made your point without it.
7 months and no hub ?!!
and pretending to be 'someone ' ?!
too cheap a trick !!
sometimes I wonder why no hubs but sure gained hubrank of 85? but me only 75 whos cheaper???? ..ME!!!! LOL!!!!
They just seem a little weird
Unfortunately any public Internet forum is consistently awash with people who love to nit-pick and flame with personal attacks. What annoys me more is when people link grammar to intelligence, spelling to IQ, and the like.
When posting in forums I never really spellcheck or proofread what I have written. Personally I do not have time to do that for everything which I write, and would much rather spend time going through work which I am paid for.
If my writing is legible to the majority of readers on a forum then I deem it acceptable.
If people feel the need to personally attack either a person or their work with no provocation, then they really do lead sad lives. I tend to try and engage the abuser in the actual discussion, it is amazing how quickly they disappear, or end up repeating their baseless insults.
When people have no real reply to your argument they insult your spelling or grammer. It's best to check your spelling and leave them nothing nothing to address but your comments.
What has this got to do with religion?
Is there No Situation that you can discuss objectively without using an excuse?
This thread IS ANTAGONISTIC in itself. If it takes a tag team to make a point... then the question of who the Dog is becomes most apparent!
There is Nothing Demeaning about an honest opinion that is factually correct.
I don't give much thought to those who post with no hubs, why, because this is a writing site!
Not sure I know of a single person here who would take someone to the dogs. There may be different opinions, different arguments, but those I know would never take anyone to the dogs. Thats just sad!
Yep ..... It's a CheapShot Thread!
Hit and Run...
2 hours and the OP doesn't take any further (direct) involvement!
Must be busy writing
I am new here and can only say that I have not experienced a personal attack or crude remark from anyone on either of my 2 hubs or indeed in any threads in the Forum.
Do you feel like you are personally under attack?
Welcome to HP Brian.
This is a wee game that gets played here on occassion:
It's called: Let's Try and Get a Rise so the Fish gets Banned!
You can generally notice it; by the fact that they Never Use Fresh Bait
Thanks Pearldiver for the welcome.
If anyone wants to make a demeaning attack on me, please feel free as my topics/hubs are not really controversial enough to warrant attack.
Maybe that is also a possible answer?
Idiots will be idiots. No point arguing except for fun and killing precious time.
In addition, just because someone isn't pumping out 86,000 hubs a day because of their proficiency in cutting and pasting articles off the internet isn't at the same level of those who do, does not mean their thoughts should be thrown to the side. I could pump out a ton a hubs a day as well IF I wanted to cut and paste articles. If this is your style FINE, I don't care one way or the other and I'm not criticizing those who do. So, please don't criticize others for putting thought into what they write and the originality of those hubs. Just don't go there, we all have our own styles and we should be applauding one another, not pushing each other down. I choose to write original life experience of life in rural America while adding a comedic twist....that's just my style. I also know people here who have joined HubPages for the sole purpose of participating in the forums but have no hubs at all, and probably never will. Who cares? They still have valid points. They shouldn't be criticized or called less than a person because they aren't a top writer here. So, for someone to say "Gee , 7 mos , and no hubs ? ! !" (note the blatant punctuation errors) what does that matter? I don't get it.
One last thought, I have ALWAYS found it true in myself and others that we criticize in others that for which we do not like about ourselves OR those whom we perceive to be better than us. Work on yourself and stop attacking others. Think about it.
Again, you speaking to yourself or someone else.
these threads become so senseless. have you nothing better to do???
I posted a request for feedback in the forum when I published my first 3 hubs. Unfortunately, one of the hubbers accused me of paying somebody as a freelancer to do my hub. I was honestly hurt but it didn't stopped me to continue writing. I just tried to respect her opinion.
I suggest you also try to write an article of your interest. If you will receive negative comments, just take it as a challenge. Goodluck!
some people love the drama, some love to dish it out.
attacking people rather than the topic or behavior is nothing more than ridicule, they're attacking something of themselves in the other person.
There is just a sense about these things as far as what is appropriate and what is not. Sometimes those who 'stir' are kind of funny and invite valid conversation - and oddly (or not) nobody complains about them, as it is sensed it is all in fun.
However, there has been a great influx (I've noticed) over the past few months of people just being nasty, calling people names and ridiculing.
And yes, of course it is completely psychological - those who feel the need to do this are projecting (psych 101) their fears and weaknesses onto others. In some way, it 'relieves' them...without having to acknowledge their feelings. I am the type who really cannot abide this sort of stuff - feel like there is enough of it in the world already.
I love to debate. I especially love to debate politics and religion. I have anger issues. Arguing topics on the forums or writing controversial hubs is a great way to redirect my anger in a positive way. And I try to stick to the topic being discussed.(pysch 101)
I didnt take pysch 101 ,prefering to take the bus instead
learned whole lot more about people,trust me and no nutty professors to tell me his theories
Debate isn't what I'm talking about guys. It is just fine in my book.
And you can read psych 101 on your own. I did, .
TK almost got me banned a few time too. I know how you feel. I just dont address anything he says anymore.
Yes, life is a good teacher, and as we've seen in the last few days; Pyschology can not always protect you from your own insanity.
Yes, funny how what we think we see in others is so hard to recognize in ourselves.
But then sometimes...
I'm with you on this Lita. there's come a point, when you just say, hey, is this your life? you have nothing better to do??
I lose respect quickly for those kind of people.
it's a handful, for the most part, the people here seem to be really decent people. some are just ignorant of basic human interactions.
Yes. And the funny thing is that Hubpage management does not acknowledge the difference between those who bully and are nasty--and those who have a tendency to defend or stand up against them, in defense of themselves or others (instead of just ignoring). Unfortunately, , for me also, haha, I have always been the latter. And don't think it will change.
I realize it is just a forum, yeah, yeah, but the written word carries weight and therefore power and influence...anyone writing I think believes this.
*edit - and I really am not talking about debate or just having fun arguing...there are just some here that ARE malicious trolls and should be thrown out.
The really funny thing is that the former so often want people (mostly themselves) to think they are the latter when the contrary is so obvious. It's a good thing that reality doesn't conform to demands, presumptions, and unchecked ego because too many competing interests would result in chaos and destroy the universe as we know it.
very true. don't you sometimes almost feel 'sorry' for them?
it's like they forget that real people are reading their comments.
Yes, Tk. That would be you (so obvious you'd know) I reference. And I have never bullied you or followed you. Or called you any dirty name. In fact, I was decent to you when you first came here...until it was obvious what you were.
But some (and I'm not sorry to acknowledge it...let them ban me for it...I do not care) have no sense of what is appropriate socially or otherwise - in fact, they live to be nasty and to be as dirty and obstructive as they can. That is commonly known as sociopathic behavior. And it can be done through actions as well as simple words, gaming the system.
In reality, I have very little interest in you at all. You are boring to me, as I don't find anything that you say of interest or carrying a lick of intelligence (sorry, just my personal opinion). I'd just prefer you leave me alone or that they ban you forever, as you are an annoyance. And it has nothing to do with any perceived differences in opinion on politics or otherwise.
Go ahead. Yawn... Hit that report button. I do have a million other things I could be doing for three days.
Trust me when I say it: I have absolutely NO interest in you at all. You leave me alone (yeah, right), I will most assuredly leave you alone.
Because, in today's society, almost everyone is defensive when it comes to two topics "religion" and "politics".
Unfortunately, these two topics can be really annoying, because people have a tendency to over-read-into-things, and make out what they detest most.
One person might find an insult funny, some wouldn't. It's relative to your attitude at the time you talk about it.
Religion is the who says what, what was said, and when it was said and if indeed any of it is factual inside reality. Which it is not.
Politics is perception. How the public perceives Government officials. What kind opinion the majority carries, because that's all politicians are interested in.
Politicians don't care about the people- they are greedy and out for themselves. Sure, some put on a great act, but the problem is the public buys the act, lock-stock and barrel.
And, it's killing society.
And, so is religion, it's killing society, because people refuse to accept FULL responsibility for their own life. And, that's the most obvious thing I conclude.
sometimes I forget to check and there may be an error, but if someone picks out my error instead of reading the post, well, their opinion wouldn't mean much anyway.
Some hubbers actually start their own forum topics about whether or not they should remain. So when a hubber starts a forum like that, as selfish as it is, what of them? Do they not deserve a necessary reality check?
Some hubbers like personal attacks. Some hubbers like dishing out personal attacks. It is the nature of the beast. However, what I find to be the most ironic characteristic of many hubpage hubbers, is the absence of the necessary, assertive self-esteem to debate. Most insecure debaters, use aggressive behavior to hide behind, due to their own lack of self-worth and educational-acquired intelligence.
It is what it is.
I think some people just like to get others going. I know a few here that seem to post only for that purpose. I've fallen for such posts in the past but I believe I have learned to take them less serious and recognize them for what they are ... a chance for someone to stir the pot and see what falls out.
The best way to stop such play .. ignore their effort and post on another thread ... which is why I almost didn't add to this thread, but I wanted to remind everyone out there that they were being led by the nose and needed to consider being their own house and not allowing another to steer them for their own amusement.
"Why can't we all just get along...PEACE and Coca-Cola Harmony, Man...!"
I just came from the "love your Hubs" thread to see what's here. It was mentioned on that thread. Looks to me like everyone has said whatever I may have said (do like debating, don't think attacking is part of debating, etc.)
Pepsi??? not what it's cracked up to be? Hmmmm...
For manly, invictus and all the peace addicts out there!
You are so beautiful, Cris...sooo lovely, Thanks!
Lovely piece. Cris!
Thank you, must close my eyes, now....
sweet dreams...xx ( eyes are melting)
when eyes melt, do the lashes descend one by one, like the sunflowers when the sun has set?
as eyes grace the sleepy time
dreams bestowed to chrimsn time
shall my eyes open anew
new day sought. life so true
Ciao bello.... I will be having very sweet dreams...
I did and often do, because our lives are but mere dreams...we get to choose whether our dream is to love, hell or any in-betweens..
This had been a great peace out moment to rest my eyes as my body continued to soar in the emotion of my poem...whew!
Here's one from a group I know of that sings for real about "Peace"...and always has ...since the 60's!
Has anyone noticed my hub score.how is that possible without writing any hubs?My avatar has nothing to do with religion.it is a visual crone.Anyone have an understanding of what a Crone is?PEARLDIVER,your arrogance is amusing.I bet you were a good little student in grammar school.Hopefully your blunted caustic mind will catch up with your perfect grammar.I PRAY it dose...
hi did you see the challenge i set for you I*n*v*i*c*t*u*s is in the challenge forum started by Cris
yeah in prose, letting of steam about something, something about as unlike you as you can imagine, it will probably be funny to those that are used to your kind ways, and luv poems. You can just pretend...... but no red a tinge of yellow or green if you must
by G. Diane Nelson Trotter 7 years ago
Why can't people on Hubpages disagree without attacking others?Opposing positions can lead to a better understanding. Personal attacks say a lot about the commenters' inability to discuss a matter intelligently.
by PrettyPanther 10 years ago
I'm asking this question because I am genuinely curious. I have never reported anyone on any forum for personally attacking me, even though it has happened. I never will report a personal attack, unless it rises to the level of something scary, like a threat, as in "when I find out where...

My daily earnings have dropped drastically -- WHY? Is it because HP has pulled ads on my hubs due to the "unfeatured" hubs, which are mostly poems? Are poems not worthy of being featured and getting daily earnings? And WHY does HP decide what should or should not be featured?...

The Medium platform sounds great. Writers' income does not come from advertising (yay!) but from a chunk of the membership fees. But here is the catch: As a non paid up member you are only allowed to read three articles per month for free. After that, if you are interested in a topic and want...
by 4wardthinker 8 years ago
I understand that we don't have to be english majors to write hubs, but i thing that we should at least stick to some basic standards. I have seen high traffic and ratings on hubs that are filled with type errors, grammatical errors, words not being capitalized, content that has a title stating one...
