Rude or Mad Comments You've Received

  1. earner profile image86

    I just logged in and checked my comments ... lovely, 4 comments ... so started to read them.

    I had to laugh at this one.  It said:

    "you all don"t know what you are talking about. This supposed to be fun and good. But every body is trying to rack up money and I am trying to confirm my domain and is geting no help from any of yu. So when I do get it together I am going to look elsewhere for information and not from people who are out for the money, Thank U but no thanks."

    Do you know what ...?  Yep, that's going to get a deny.

    If he'd just asked a particular question I could have helped, but no.  No, it's easier to have picked on a random person.

    So - what rude or mad comments have you received on your hubs?

        Personally anyone relying on clicks for income, is mad mad mad to me anyway...... or sad, it has to be the stupidest method of income I have ever heard of, not withstanding the lamest. So they get all precious, when you get in the way of their 20c.......... Its a real laugh, I have been told not to mess with the adsense process, by one Hubber, who fanned me, then explained that I was not to interrupt her adsense business,  It was when I was registered as Mandybeau  not mandybeau 1  When I was banned for bad behaviour hahahahahaha
        she was wiped by the team and I thankfully lost her.
        I think that the best policy on here is to just laugh at the idiots, and take no notice, they are mostly lifes failures anyway.
        I appreciate your Hubs, and I am worth a zillion of them (Oh the Vanity)

      The incident that always comes to mind first when people bring up this subject is when a woman once tried to perform an exorcism on me in the comments on one of my hubs.  And we won't go into the nasty names I've been called as a staff member.

      I've had only a handful of comments and only one that I denied.

      Nothing special or out of the ordinary, just good ol' spam.

      Jonathan Jancoposted 8 years ago

      The only such comments I've received were on the only religion-oriented hub I've written. The subject matter was a bit controversial so I didn't expect every comment to be positive. I got several comments from the same hubber because I responded to her initial comment with my own point of view and she basically tried to turn my comments section into a forum. Some of the attacks were personal and in a roundabout way I believe she was telling me I'll burn in hell. Whatever.
      I also didn't deny the comments because I didn't feel threatened by them. I also wanted my readers to see them for what they were. The one you describe is a bit different: awful spelling, horrible grammar and such and seemed to be attacking you purely because of his disappointment in not finding in your hub what he was looking for.
      There will always be negative comments here and there and I wouldn't let it discourage you if I were you.

      I have had some people leave strange, but interesting comments on one of my hubs. How ever, I didn't take offense to it, because it was obvious that the person really didn't take time to read through everything.

      However rude the comment was, is irrelevant to my reason for leaving it. If you're interested in see it, as in my response and his re-post of another commment.

      http://hubpages.com/hub/Where-Is-Citizen-Protection

      And, to this one particular hub, traffic is not a problem, so no I'm not self-promoting, but want to show an example of what I mean.

      As for some hubber's view, that they want to continue a discussion on or in the comment section is nuts and should be conducted in the forums.

      Either way, I can understand the OP and I wouldn't be surprised if that person, even knew what they were talking about, nevermind the hub they were suppose to be reading.

      Thank you for sharing. It is greatly appreciated.

            LOL. A good rule of thumb is, if you want your comment to have a positive effect, it's good not to start with SHUT THE HELL UP!
            His comment after your response was quite an interesting reversal. Maybe he took the time to have a cookie. Cookies are always good therapy.

          I invite all comments, as long as, the person doesn't go out of their way to be extremely rude. Simply because, even criticism is helpful. It gives insight to a different perspective. big_smile

      I remember getting one accusing me of being a spammer and a scammer.

      It really did offend me for a minute because yes i am an affiliate marketer but I am as far away from a scammer or spammer as you will ever get.

      I got over it quick and just chalked it up to someone upset or someone who probably has been scammed in the past.

        Shall I do the honors, You sound like you are missing out no you are a hard case, most MOST of what you write is commonsense on the Forums, despite the fact, some of us are being stupid, and all your Hubs are interesting and well written........ Be interesting to see if a controversial Hub written by you was attacked...................................Go on write one.

      I received several rude comments (all deleted). But I only remember only one - in my bad study habits for students hub - one visitor wrote the 'f' word for all teachers.

      Mad comments? I received some in my stay-at-home husband hub (switching roles in marriage) because he / she thinks I meant something I actually didn't think about when I was writing the hub.

      Right now, I'm kind of receiving looooooonnnnnnngggggg comments (not mad comments, yet) from my domestic violence against men hub because I wasn't 'impartial' enough. Er a woman writing a hub for men is not impartial? Okkkaaaayyyyy.
