I know I am. But chatting with people, discussing world shaking questions, being there for new friends I've made here has made a lot of difference in my life. So maybe I spend a little too much time bumping on the last one to post thread - it's all good, right?
How about you? have you benefited from this endless forum chatting? or is it outta control for you?
Do we need to do anything about it? and anyway what could we do?
I'm on here everyday in between my chores and writing about 4 or 5 hours - seriously!
We can make it productive....30 hubs to read thread was good one...it can take us away from forums for a while..
I don't know if I would say I'm addicted, but when I make a post, I can't wait to see the response.
yeh - you know, its like talking only you get to edit what you ssay before anyone hears it! of course, afterwards its printed sso you can't claim NOT to have said it!
It's kind of a let down if you don't upset people sometimes. SOMETIMES.
Really? I have been really trying not to upset people. Sometimes I speak out about things I think are ignorant, but I don't actually tell people I think they are ignorant! Should I? probably not. Once I got in trouble for trying to defend somebody who got into a bit of a jam, then everybody turned on poor little old me! It sure is fun to watch people sometimes squirming around! But I don't like to make them squirm myself.
nor do I like to squirm!
I feel I can't do without it. I guess that's addicted.
I look forward to chatting with everybody every day. Of course, its not a bad addiction in most ways! I'm not addicted to attacking or criticizing others! I'm not addicted to empty argument just for the sake of arguing. and I like to leave the forums with a good feeling for everyone! So maybe there actually CAN be a GOOD addiction!
One more thing is reading the hubs and making comments for the hub/hubber. That is also one way to increase productive activity on HP.

There are a lot of us who haven't been feeling safe on the forums. They've felt stalked, harassed and browbeaten.Sadly, some folks go with the letter of the law, but not the spirit of it in their posts.For an excellent post on why we need Forum Moderators, check out what Makingamark says here...

In the thread that I posted about a certain person that threatened me and got no retribution, but my thread was taken down, Miss Maddie Ruud posted this last response before she shut it down:"This entire thread is turning into a personal attack. If another hubber is breaking our rules...

It's not my place to "hope" what I wish would happen is anything anyone pays attention to; but every once in awhile there will be some really, really, ugly thread that it's posted by some nut-case or else posted to stir things up.I'm not talking about some of the silliness and wackiness...

Bump our own threads 5 or 6 times within a few hours just to get people to comment on them? (When no one else is paying attention to that thread)

I understand that our girl, one of our favorite hubbers was banned yesterday. She was not told why she was banned. Today is her birthday and she cannot post on the forums because of this ban. Does anyone knows why she was banned?
