Just wondering, without revealing my own spin, I would like to know others opinions of these mostly hard case Forums.
Nah, I'm usually an annoyer. I think it's quite strange that people get so worked up. I'm hoping some people like me look worked up but aren't? The only think that works me up is being accused of being worked up
People that post in the forums but don't write any hubs
They're not "mostly hard case forums", it just looks that way because one or two forums (mainly the religious ones) dominate the "latest posts".
Ignore those and visit the Hub-related threads, like Knowledge Exchange and Hub Makeover, and you'll find Hubbers collaborating politely and happily together.
You are right, I used to enjoy the Politicals, in the Chats, then they gor really rugged, so I looked in at the Religious ones when I came on here, Brother, what a shocker, people tearing each other apart. Like the Colloseum Days. The ones you mention are way more civilised. Even abit of humour thrown in, such as my latest post, where a Guy made a Crack, I think was directed at me being a Poser. Still smiling, thats Good.
2. People who have been banned who come back under a different guise.
Nope. Don't remember being annoyed. Figure any time I don't like a topic, I can always go write a hub or (gasp!) turn off the computer.
We debate here, we share views and we have disagreements. But we all know where to draw line and where to take things on ourselves. So i don't get annoyed and i hope others don't get annoyed with me as well.
I see no reason to get annoyed. Saying what you think is OK I reckon. Some people go off over very little.
Not annoyed, but amazed at the number of posts in threads like
"last post is the winner:Redux", or
"Name something starting with A".
I remember the original Last" post" thread that was stopped because it was slowing the whole system down.
And the introduction of the sandbox, where threads like this could survive without bringing the rest of the forum down.
Also amazed at the number of people been here only a few months with many thousands of posts.
I don't find these actually annoying, but have seen them, and not participated. I do find them sort of childish. They don't interest me at all. Also there are so many like that.
I didn't know about the Sandbox.
Eric, it's because there's a whole army of new Hubbers who think HubPages is a social networking site, not a writing site. They're the ones who join, get into fights in the forums, get banned, and think that just because they can't post in the forums there's no point in being here - so they delete all their Hubs too, and thereby lose out on any income they would have gained. Strange people.
I haven't written anything to delete, is this a NO No?
Twuxedo, it's not exactly a No No. Having a few well written hubs helps your credibility in the forums with the rest of us, though. No rush or anything, but if (for example) someone's been here a year, produced ten thousand posts, and never written one hub...well, his (or her) opinion will be somewhat discounted by producing writers.
Of course not !
do as you please.
I'm here for fun, so I don't care about adsense, traffic and such.
If you want to earn money ,that's another story.
lol that makes me look bad seein how I didnt write a hub yet... I have to be in the mood to get my writing skills going on lol but I will have one... and I also gotta figure out how that part of this site works to I mean I would be mad if I wrote for a long time then clicked the wrong button and it all vanished!!
Hey Girl you haven't written a Hub either, so why is your score higher eh? So blonde woman just score higher than drk Guys
You now have a new follower. Me. Why not write your first Hub on your furry friend?
I presume you allude to the pretty blonde not me,
Yeah, I was. I figured since she was maybe wondering about a Hub Topic than maybe her furry friend might be a start.
It's sad, but I've seen that a bit here and I haven't been on here for all that long. There are forums specifically designed to be more like social networking sites where people are allowed to get into heated debates.. Here though, I see this more as a relaxing way to get to know other writers.
Still, I see no point in getting annoyed over anything online - but that's just me. Life's too short to waste on getting annoyed over trivial things.
Yeah, Eric, that last one (new comer with a gazillion posts) has always amazed me, too.
I'm annoyed at those who do not take me seriously.
And those who try to steal the tassels of the girls at the Stripper Factory.
Good conversations brought down by trolls...only mildly annoying though, I shouldn't be wasting my time in the forums anyway . There have been some great discussions with excellent views on both sides that are quite entertaining and educational until someone tries to attack anyone and everyone in it...even if no one replies to the attacker, it does interrupt the flow of conversation a bit.
There is no reason to get annoyed because everyone has his points.In fact,the forum discussions give me more angles or scopes to look at my life as well as others; twuxedo, why don't you share your opinion?
I love it here, I try not to get involved in the heated debates, sometimes i will drop an opinion in here and there but Im not a 'dominant' figure. I love chatting here, my little escape from the outside world after work!
Some of us like the forums and don't care to participate in Religious or Political ones, so the light, fluffy types are just fine. The afore-mentioned Forums get to be quite contentious. Not everyone comes to HubPages to make money; some do it for the comraderie, therefore they spend a lot of time in the Forums, racking up those posts. Childish? That's not very nice, but that is your opinion. What annoys me? Oh yeah: People who look down on other people in the Hub Pages.
As far as the actual topic of this forum? How could one allow simple words on a screen annoy you? If you have a discussion going on about a particular topic and something strange pops up, just ignore it and carry on. It ain't nothin' but a thing and if it's provided any attention at all in any way, they have the attention they crave. Ain't no fire lasts without fuel.
The only thing that annoys me is trying to find the right Category for my Hubs Grrrr
One thing does annoys me, but it only annoys me once in awhile, probably when I'm hormonal. This is supposed to be a writing website, and it really bugs me to see so many hubs and forum posts riddled with errors. I'm not talking about the occasional grammatical mistake or typo; we all do that. I'm talking about hubs and posts riddled with poor grammar, punctuation and spelling.
I never point it out, though.
Hey DM, nope I didn't kill your husband (guess that might sound out of context) lol, sorry I couldn't reply, but computer finally died, it is now back but with half a screen, no sound, letters as big as my fingers, and internet speed about half as fast as I had in the mid 90's.
I think all the internet porn has finally killed it.
Anything make you annoyed on thse Forums?
Yes, favoritism shown to certain hubbers by the moderators with regards to link snipping.
All hubbers are equal, but some are more equal than others.
this I will agree with..A Texan, my dear..you do not want to see me really let go when I am in this mood, it doesnt happen often , but I get viscious like a pent up pit bull
well, THANK YOU VERY MUCH..
I just do not feel I need to put up a "sexy pic" of myself, so I just used an ordinary one of myself from the fall and cropped the body off...
hmm, maybe I should follow many others and put up one of my more revealing or "sexy " pics..I will not, however, put a pic up of a different woman..
Your avatar made me feel better, made me think of those VanZant brothers, so I can't let off mean steam now..I am "day dreaming "..lmao!
for one, people who think they are better than someone else because of their views or their avatars or just those people who purposly like to pick at others for things thay can not help ..
shall I continue?
An enlightened person trying to sell his e-book of poetry through his postings at religious forums!
I better NOT continue, I am not myself tonight and I might let it all loose..
could be a bad thing.
I get annoyed when I state an opinion about any old thing at all and someone rushes in to argue with my opinion! I mean, we ask each other questions and the idea (one would think) is to just get to know what all the other hubbers that are interested think about that topic - not to berate and belittle and take issue with everything others say if they don't happen to agree with the questioner. But this happens alot in other places too, not just HP. Why can't people just let each other have their opinions, listen to what they say and let them be?
So this is why I spend most of my time in the forums being silly! trading witticisms and seducing people into my fantasies and this crazy cyber-world! (Like The HubTribe is Forming - an alternative to seriousness, usually)
I just get annoyed when people judge me without knowing me..take time to know me first before you judge me poorly, please...
and A TEXAN is a wonderful writer, He will keep you interested till the end!
YES..I am very annoyed when people come to the forums, dont really care about the topic, but use it in a sneaky way to get you to "follow" them..
write good hubs, do not self promote, and you will get followers without begging...
I am not annoyed...just having fun...It is a nice break from technology

I have been on Hubpages now for 2years, I have seen writers come and go, people from all walks of life. Each with their own story to tell and each having there own style. Back then we were a community, but since then people on the forums now can not stop fighting. In fact many people on HP avoid...

I am sorry to have to bring this up, but, and I don't want to get banned from HP's by naming names - but there are some complete dick heads in these forums who think they know it all and walk all over everyone else, you must have seen them or read their answers, so condescending it is unbelievable....

Since I really hate to see my own face everytime I post, I have been switching avatars constantly as a kind of entertainment and enjoy finding new fantasy pics to post. But I notice that people often say on the forums that they are annoyed by people not posting their own pics and that they...

I am really upset over the whole discussion about the Apprenticeship program. Now disgruntled hubbers want to have the badge removed form our profiles.When I became an "elite", when it was known as that, I was treated really badly by some petty hubbers. When I joined the AP program I fell...
by Carolee Samuda 6 years ago
Most people on Hp have an avatar on their profile. Some are genuine photos of them and others are weird looking pictures. There are those that are quite pleasant to look at while others are...how should I put it...quite different?!How do you feel about the avatars you see?
