I would like to know....
Something wrong in opening a thread about someone's banned ?
I was just doing lyrics a favor.
Was someone suggesting it was wrong?
However, if you did it to "do Lyric a favour" then perhaps it could have been done in less dramatic fashion.
I mean, the only way it benefits Lyric is so her friends know where she is. So a thread along the lines of, "Lyric is banned for three days so please contact her via email" would have sufficed.
I thought I was free to post as I like, unless attacking somebody ?
didn't see any attack
Lyrics deserved to be banned.
She instigated a systematic attack on someone who posted comments on her blog she found unacceptable.
She further fuelled this attack by creating an online drama, illiciting support from her minions to 'gang up' on an innocent individual who simply expressed her disapproval regarding her drug addiction.
Exactly what part of Lyrics actions do you find acceptable? Admin has now made their ruling, just why can't you accept it?
You deserve it too, as far as I am concerned, because you constantly berated her.
So, you were no better, because you already knew that she was emotionally stressed, but you persisted.
So, you know where you can go?
I wouldn't even put it past you, that this was completely made up by you, so as to purpose get her banned, because you know if you pushed her hard enough you would get to her.
So, again, you know where you can go?
So what? What do you think you are? So righteous? You're just as bad as the fool who posted on her hub.
And, get it right- there is no BLOG here. There are Hubs?
When she went overboard, posting the repeated post multiple times, is when she crossed the line. But, your inexcusable actions of continued beratement wasn't much better.
So, again, you know where you can go?
Have a nice day!!!!!!!!!!!
Where would you like to go! I feel that you are attacking Tantrum, who is my friend. You are being downright paranoid. So I would stop being a Nasty person, and that is not a personal attrack, but you have been doing so.
GO TANTRUM Up the Anti, Oh Bother banned again.
Lol Max, there you go again, writing among the low-lifes and little people. Be a habit before you know it. Quit while you're ahead ... before anyone suspects you're not a real writer
Now now Tantrum, you must always follow the Rulz just like us good little Hubbers, notice always the same people tell you off.
Why don't leave it open ??
threads are for posting with friends as well.
The threads are not for making use of ridicule of others. And, shouldn't be acceptable under any circumstances.
Including this one should be closed simply because YOU are ridiculing HubPages the Company itself.
Give it a break, would ya.
Where I'm ridiculing HP ??
show me !
I only want to know, why I can't post in that thread.
did I break some rules ?
I think someone should explain to me.
You didn't ask that question, you asked whether you were wrong to start the thread. If you were wrong to start it, I assume it would have been deleted completely.
I don't know why the thread was closed - perhaps because admin were concerned it would become heated, as previous "banning" threads have.
And Haunty - the issue of whether Diana (or whatever her name was) was a troll or not is irrelevant, other than being the reason Kimberly started her threads.
The point is, Diana was NOT the reason for her banning. Her fight with Max was.
If you cannot figure it out, then I am not about to try and explain it to you. It's not really worth the time.
Have a great day.
So, Can someone of HP team explain to me please ?
did I break some rule ?
It is the right of hubpages to close any thread. It's not a punishment for rules violation. The punishment for rules violation is banning. So if you broke any rules, chances are you would already be banned.
None of us are entitled to further explanation-- These are matters between administration and the poster.
1. They could spend all of their time explaining and arguing about why or why not, any hubber is banned. This would be non- productive and create even more bad feelings.
2. They have other things to do-- like getting the statistics back up.
3. They are running a business with a good reputation, not a democratic republic.
Do you mean Lyricsingray? I didn't know she got banned. Why DID she get banned?
Ding Ding.. Ladies and gentlemen welcome to the clash of the hubbers! in the left corner, bad ass beauty dressed in leapard skin with human tits... welcome TANTRUM! (APPLAUSE & CHEERS)
in the right corner the rest of the hubbers weighing tons of steel with sharp tongue views... WELCOME commentators!
Round 1: ding ding fight!....
If you are reading this lyrics I am sorry that you got banned. you didn't deserve to get banned the one who started attacking you first did. I'll miss you and see you in three days
She most certainly did deserve to get banned!
If you expose yourself in a public online forum through a blog, a hub or whatever... then you have to be prepared to face up to the consequences of that exposure.
Lyrics is a self confessed drug abuser. She doesn't hide that fact. She probably gains emotional strength through her cathartic expressions of drug abuse. Some will sympathise with her, others will not.
You simply cannot have just sympathetic opinions all the time. And lets be real here, she's had more than her fair share of sympathetic supporters. Eventually, someone will come along who will be less sympathetic and express their views in a frank manner. There is nothing wrong with that. It's human nature. Free speech and all that. By exposing more of yourself, as Lyrics has done, in a two pronged strategy at achieving cathartic release and garnering emotional support, you then need to be open to the possibility that some might find your actions unacceptable.
She adored the support, but was unable to deal with a valid criticism.
Kindly don't start. Not here not again. I am asking you to leave. There should be no more harsh words.
And if you continue, There will be.
This is unnecessary and wrong. Let's just drop it. Okay?
Blatva don't worry about Max. Don't go getting het up. He's just sharing. He's allowed. Besides he writes so eloquently, we can learn from him.
He's a real writer you know *nods* A pro. He honors us with his words of wisdom.
:3 No matter the subject, and no matter who comes in here and says anything *cough* I can't wait for Kimberly's return ^_^
I'm totally putting her in the comic
So, lets keep everything civil ^^
Message from Kimberly,
A very important clarification needs to be stated especially to Marisa who so sensitively has stated. Two wrongs don't make a right. I was not responding to any personal attack. Not once in the forums was I approached or attacked by this person. She has never entered the forums. My postings were a cry for support which stemmed from verypainful comments in a hub. The community as usual were more than supportive and helpful. This is my responsibility completely and I stand by in. Inretrospect it is now a legal matter and Marisa is correct maybe we shouldn't post when we are upset. My feeling is that is when we should post most. I needed and need help, asking for it because my character was demoralized, judged and humiliated from a comment not post was a decision I chose and did state I was prepared to be banned for it. It was also I who told this other party about the forums and this is how she came to be aware of them. Again my choice. We all have consequences for our actions but to judge is filthy. Marisa you judge me even now when you were right there posting alongside me.
Judge me. I am me. I will miss ya all. Bless you for your help.
My situation is thankfully become one of a legal nature and was a planned attack.
love ya wankers.
Just hang in there. Three days is not that long. And then you can speak again. It gives you time on work on the men's hub, huh? Hopefully, everything will be back to normal.
Kimberly has completely missed the point. Does she really think the troll on her Hub is the reason she was banned?
Three times, she posted on one of her threads starting with "I am prepared to get banned for this attack" - then proceeded to attack another (male) Hubber. She knew what she was doing, but she did it anyway - how can she possibly complain?
In fact, I posted to warn her how silly it was to do such a thing. Flout the rules deliberately - what do you expect? Maddie has made it clear that's exactly why she was banned. And it's only for three lousy days, for God's sake!
I have sympathy with the original reason for her postings but none at all for this current situation.
You can call Dianne a troll because of her second comment in which she posted the youtube link, if you want. But certainly not for the first comment.
What is done is done, Right? Whether she be wrong or right. She is entitled to feeling whatever She wants, and so is everyone else.
Nothing else matters at this point.
Yes it does, Blatva, because Kimberly is misunderstanding why she was banned - which means she wont learn from the experience.
You want it all to stop and people to move on. I just wish people saw that this is the primary reason why admin closed tantrum's first topic on this. So let's just all stop.
And I'm only hoping you feel better today.
Lady you seriously need to get over yourself. You are so, she shouldn't BLAH BLAH BLAH!
By the way I love your Hair, Can I have the name of your Stylist.
I find the e-mail interesting How would she know it was a planned attack? How is it now legal, I honestly did not find the comment on her hub to be to harsh it was just someone expressing their thoughts, I need coffee now but all of us are entitled to our opinions and if we do not like them we can always delete them. Anyway good morning
good morning...already finished my coffee...ready for another
You are as always a breath of freeze air. Why don't they put you in charge.
Happy New Year B y the way.
I posted exactly what she asked.
She sent it to me via email.
Not my words.
It's a 3 day ban from posting on a few of the billions of forums on the internet.
It's no big deal. Instead of fueling the fire by continuing to take sides, why doesn't everybody let it go as a lesson learned? Drop the whole thing, cool off and move on.
You both want some sort of lesson to be learned from this. That's fine, I can see why you would. Also, I can see this lesson. It's a good one.
But it all boils down to the same conclusion. People are always going to have different opinions. One thing Max actually did say, That I do agree with, is Freedom of speech.
You have the right to want to make a point. And I have the right to try to just let all of this go.
In actuality, Three days is nothing big. I will give you that Marisa. And Yes, Haunty. She got banned because of How she reacted to someone saying their opinions, Not because of any other reason.
Now, That being all said and in the open.. What's stopping us from just letting go? I am not going to fight anymore. I am tired of stating my opinions, and then watching them get burned to the ground.
I'm walking away, and I suggest everyone else do the same.
This is my last post on the matter. I hope you all have a good night
If its regarding what I think it is the other person should have probably been banned two, she singled out lyrics because of how she lived her life and her beliefs, completely personal and unprovoked in itself.
never mind though, three days will pass!
ANYWAYS Again to Lyrics if you are reading this you are missed by a lot of us including me. I will see you in 3 days and we shall celebrate your return.
Everyone is entitled to express there opinions including Maximus, he did not do anything wrong he had his own opinion. How many times do any of us have to be told that we need to step back and breathe before we act? Here is an ex: I posted a thread about HAITI not being rationale at all expressing my thoughts and not understanding why our Country was broke but we gave $100 million? I was beating down by some of you for my thoughts, I took the beating and after realizing that those people needed help to, I closed my own thread. I was not starting a thread to fight, badger, point someone out I just wanted some to listen sometimes we do things placing the cart before the horse but attacking each other is completely wrong and unnecessary! This is not high school and all of us are adults, well the last time I checked.
Just like I said on the other thread go read or write all will be fine.
But...But I don't want to be stuck in HS... NOOOOO!!!! *sits down and cries*
yes very cute AEvans...okay gotta ask is that a family member? so cute!
I don't visit for 7 hours and come and all this happens. Oh gosh...:[

I was 'banned' from posting for 3 days - The Hub Team have yet to explain their reasons despite three requests from me. I'm assuming I was reported by one of the few right wing posters that I have had the odd debate with. I even have an inkling who it was. I find the whole thing a bit sad and...

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?

Does this prove I was targeted and banned by a "special" group here?This was said to a Liberal hubber on a thread:"Just be careful. The HP police are always about and I'd hate for you to get your panties in a wad, say something too nasty, and get banned before we've discovered we...

So apparently Mark was banned from the forum the other day for being a decent person. Then someone here had the audacity to call my favorite author's work, "drivel." So I thought maybe Mark, being one of the funniest ppl I have never met, should get a little shot in the arm. My favorite...

There are some irritating entities in the forums who seem to get into good threads trying to start pointless arguments with pointless questions or are just plain rude for no reason. I have seen reference to trolls and sock puppets - I think I have got troll but can someone explain it all for...
