Do you still have the Space Invaders stalking you?
It annoys me no end to see EditBot marring my page under "Accounts". Yesterday I went through each hub [admittedly I dont have hundreds like some of you] and ticked or unticked each 'error' as I saw fit. I still dont think I should mess with someone else's writing so I unticked those. I have noticed that the yellow or grey color has gone so I don't notice them easily on the hub. And the best part? There are none on my Accounts page. Gone. I am free of them. Yeah!
Yep even the ones for comments. Does it bother me? No because I am in the process of moving my hubs to another site, not because of the space invaders but because of a better income opportunity
Aah!! The joy of real choices. Leave a few here LoisRyan13903 so you will visit sometimes, but wish you the best with the rest.
I'm sure I will come here for the questions and answers but will leave some hubs
I don't have the time to go through hundreds upon hundreds of check marks in my hubs, the vast majority lurking in my comments. I took it upon myself to write a hub about it instead: http://faceless39.hubpages.com/hub/the- … p-is-xxxxx
Good for you, MarieLB. I got rid of mine, too. I was overwhelmed initially and decided to leave them be. But when the update was posted with the new and improved system, I went in, reviewed corrections all over again, and the idiots, urr . . . editbots disappeared. Frustrating, time-consuming, and tedious, yes, but in the long run, very good.
I accepted all the corrections made by editbot by viewing each hub. And now they have gone. But, there is still one stalker on my "Rasam" hub. It is not going. I edited some words in that hub after removing the errors shown by editbot. Now there are no corrections in that hub. But, the editbot is not removing from the accounts page only for this hub. I think, the editbot got angry at my corrections instead of accepting its corrections. That is why it is not going. Very silly!!!
Hi V M you gave me a good laugh there. Funny how these little ugly critters have got us all riled up. I love the way you worked out the why of having one still lurking there. Storyteller par excellence!
Thanks for selecting my answer as best answer.

Space Invaders Have Attacked My Hubs!First there was EditBot, then came EditBot Comments. I literally feel like I'm playing Space Invaders every time I open My Account now. It's highly distracting, and when I "uncheck" the unwanted corrections, these Robots should Go Away! At what point...

Today I was alerted to a practice I have seen for the first time on Hub Pages. A Hubber, who shall for obvious reasons remain nameless, is shamelessly copying parts of another Hub Page Writer's hubs and posting them up as their own, and even resorting to copying the style of writing and...

Many people blame parents and society for their troubles. However, once we become adults, it is time to realize that our parents have done the best that they knew how. Furthermore, once one becomes an adult, he/she must look beyond the parental/familial purview and establish his/her...

Is there a reason why hubbers do not accept constructive criticism and/or corrections? Am I the only grown-up on this site who takes corrections as a means of making my hubs better and myself informed? I, not wanting to let a hubber I started to follow look like a fool, decided to correct this...
