    overwhelming of people on Hubpages are wonderful, highly intelligent, fierce, and totally awesome.   However, there are OTHER kinds of people.  Well, I am just going to leave it at that!     In other words, if one cannot say anything positive about a person, do not cast any criticisms at all.

    I would say many of those "others " are here because they thought HP would be an easy target for spam. Or Trolling ,which seems to be quite the rage these days much like hating on peoples religious beliefs of lack of religious beliefs. I'm with you though I believe most of us to be intelligent and awesome but those few that aren't seem to just seek conflict or a place to show off their wisDUMB

      Yeah I guess I am and I'm not choosing sides either the moron club isn't prejudiced it accepts the overly hateful atheists and the overly defensive Christians. I just don't see why they can't just worry about themselves and leave everyone else alone

    I'm quite new and so far have only met good people. I didn't realize people just put nasty commens on some forums.  I guess they feel the need o vent their anger or frustration and feel safe doing it from their computer.  Luckily, most people are great, imaginative, bright, funny and interesting.

    Yes I have wondered and I have wondered why HP does not attack this issue by insisting on a minimum number of Hubs every quarter, six months or whatever to show that the person is interested in contributing something. If they do not meet the quota, they they should be banned.

    Also, I think more information needs to be included in the profile. Are you working or a student. What is your primary area of interest. What part of the world do you live in or at least what timezone. These would not be invasive questions.
