'someone' decided to report personal attacks, which aren't that serious by the way. PearlD e-mailed me telling me what happened to him. I know why he was banned for. It's superfluous i'm not saying anything because PD didn't reply to my e-mail giving me permission to tell.
sometimes it's a bait. These hubbers have been banned for less than other replies in other forums. I've been insulted 10 times worse, but didn't report. It's the pettiness of some hubbers that makes you get banned sometimes.
Yes, maybe admin should first take a look at who the reporting party is. Paul Deeds said the other day that they had no time to investigate every situation, so most of the time they just look at the reported post. Still, Pearldiver getting banned because of that cleanclover guy is utterly ridiculous. She is not known for being sugar-coated, but is it allowed to express the truth any more, I wonder...
HAHHAHAHAHA!!!! wear like a badge of courage!! I think its lame anyone would report any of those guys. you too tantrum, but...well...each person has the opportunity to privately explain thier case to hp hq, via email. Its not like thier entire profile is gone. even if it was, you love em so much, you got thier personal emial? HP isnt actually life..ya know? its a fun distraction or a bit of pocket change..but seriously...Its 3 days no forum...so ...write a hub!! se ya soon guys!! luv ya!!
Thank you...but still...who knows except the HubPages staff how many people actually read these posts, and report them? Obviously, you don't have to post on here to report, since that handy little link is right there...
lol--I think you misunderstood what I was saying above, Tantrum.
When I said "Obviously, you don't have to post on here to report, since that handy little link is right there", I meant that anyone could click on the report button to report someone else's post, that you don't have to actually be writing posts yourself to report them.
My point was that it could have been anyone who reported PearlDiver...just trying to clear that up.
Of course, you can open any thread, lol...no need to be touchy!
I got an e-mail from BloodNLatex and he does have a 3 day ban, why did PD get banned? What is OP? I read on the forums yesterday that Dog had gotten banned and that is so sad to because he did not mean any harm.
It's actually quite simple. Just like traffic cops have a monthly quota of tickets to write, forum cops have an annual requirement for bannings. The year is almost over, and so many of us have been on our best behavior this year....
Thanks for including me in your banned thread and for expressing just how ridiculous things have gotten in the forums. I really appreciate that. The funniest part about the whole thing is what they actually banned me for. It was for when the two of us were posting in the Last One To Post thread about Smooth being banned. I think they got me for saying 'That °°°°°° got his way.' referring to CleanClover, but never mentioning his name. There is a hundred more offensive things I said yesterday than that, but that is the one I got pinched for. Then I replied back to their email asking them to site the exact post that I was banned for, and they threatened to ban me for life. Oh well, now I have three days to actually get some work done in the office.
Please feel free to send me an email anytime you feel the need. I'm always here for you!
Hey tantrum, please tell PD and blood that we'll miss them lots. Maybe it's just 3 days but it sure will be quiet here without them. Saw that thread and honestly, it was pretty tame considering the guy was trying to bait all of you.
They're reading this thread, I suppose they can do that. I infer Blood was doing it. I hope HP can reconsider ? But I think they would not. As they have post some personal attacks. anyway Bovine & me received worse from Mohit, and he's still posting. So go figure !! Pity !
I read where Paul Deeds clarified how banning is done...yesterday. I haven't read this thread entirely...but I have seen where folks get banned and other folks who completely provoked a "thread bout" walked away...unscathed!
About the forums...don't be reporting folks...if your tail feathers are burning...especially if you the one lighting the match! Man...I would be embarrassed to report anything to HP...that is not critical to the over all welfare of Hub Pages. Save the reportin' for someone who is provoking an intentional attack against you (the: said Hubber) oneselve that will cause the one being attacked loss of fans/followers across the Hub community...because it may be malicious, unfounded, mean, nasty...etc..? In other words...a true attack...not just cause you got your feelings hurt..in a debatable issue!
This week I've heard from two Hubbers that are thinking of leaving Hub.The reason is being picked-on or lied about. Why the hell does anyone here have the need to do this?Some of you know who you are, and you will probably write in saying; this is terrible. Please write in if you are or aren't one...
If people don't have to join HP to read our Hubs, why then....are people joining and then getting banned? I've had about a dozen of people that sign up, follow me, and then get banned. This has all taken place in the last week or so. It makes me wonder why they joined and why they...
Well with that many people banned this morning, all productive and active Hubbers in the community, I might as well join them.Their posts that were reported, I don't lie, were not malicious in the slightest way.So that brings us to who's been hitting the report button so much? We all have our...
You wouldn't take someone else's writing, so why do so many of you think it's okay to steal photographs?A photo or work of art is a creative endeavour, the same as a piece of writing. Therefore, it usually belongs to someone. HubPages is a commercial site. One where you hope to earn some money,...
