    Good morning everyone!

    I dont have anything against bumping a thread, some people want answer to their queries and they are waiting for people to respond to their excitement, sadness or anything they want to share or ask...

    Mikel, correct, the more activity on hub pages the better for everyone, some people dont seem to understand that, some people think we should sit and do nothing just because they cant be bothered about Hub Pages but are only concerned about their own dribble and nonsence smile

    I think both sides have good points. The problem as I see it is that most people I belive participate in the forums from the Latest Forum Activity Board instead of actually going into the forums. So when the topic of interest to them gets pushed down to the bottom of the page they want to bring it back up to keep it active.
    I think that the Latest Forum Activity Board is a good thing and allows us to be active in a number of forums at one time so maybe the issue is whether or not we should 2 latest activity boards one for the never ending and hubbers hangout forums and one for the more serious forums.

    ATTENTION!  I believe everyone knows I am only in the forums to get attention for my needy ego!  I bump sometimes just for the joy of knowing that people know I am alive! Is this such a terrible, awful thing?  I am not an axe murderer!  I have not abused anyone!  I just want some frickin ATTENTION!  and lately people have got used to me and just ignore me, so I have had to become more and more porno-ish in order to get any response at all.  Meanwhile they are saying "Hi!" to each other and "How are you?" and hijacking every single discussion, good or bad !  If I can't get you all to pay more attention to me I will bump all over the place, just like some others do.  I will not live by my good principles and just bash and talk dirty ALL THE TIME!  SO THERE!

    Personally, I have no problem with bumping - annoying, but I can ignore it.

    Despite that, I think you are being a bit harsh, Irish. You are a smart guy and have a running feud with Whitney. Can't you sort that out yourself, without a gang of people jumping on her and everybody who disagrees?

    I have had a few arguments with Whitney, but she does not deserve this 'ganging up.'

    Is that funny enough for you, Tantrum?

      no one deserves a ganging-up. and yet these people do it all the time. if they want to start their own threads and bump til the cows come home, fine, who cares? but to deliberately hijack and bump another's thread, especially ones whose topics complain about hijacking and bumping is just plain disrespectful. no one invades their little threads and hijacks them. they seem to feel safe in numbers and therefore they feel they can do and say whatever they want because they all have each other's back and will gang up on anyone who posts a dissenting opinion. pretty childish and nasty, IMO.

    as for the original question -  I believe we should bump our own threads until someone comes into the thread and chats with us, or tells us to shutup! (which is against the rules, no?)

    mega1posted 9 years ago

    I haven't had a meaningful discussion in the forums since - well, forever.  That's probably because I don't respond to religion and politics topics much and instead make small talk in the Tribe or on the Hijack thread.  I would like to have a meaningful discussion with someone someday about something other than cocks and etc.  But I can't think of a good topic that I know anything about!

    And lately there sure does seem to be alot of frivolity and finger pointing and irritability!  Well, that may be because the world is so churned up, the weather is terrible, the superbowl is over and also no one is mentioning things like the academy awards because we feel guilty focussing on this when so many are sick and dying in Haiti and around the world!  Maybe, just maybe, these forums are an expression of our angst, thinly veiled.  We must have compassion for each other, be strong, and also live and let live!

      No Irish, I am suggesting that if you have a problem with her, sort it yourself, one on one.

      All I saw on this thread was a gang jumping down her throat - that is pretty low, in my eyes. If I saw that in the street, I would intervene - the same here.

      You all keep banging on about how people are too sensitive and should f'"k off if they don't like it, yet you keep whining because someone called you names yesterday.

      Can't have it both ways - if you are smart as you say you are, you should have the intellect to deal with it yourself.

      I see - you are responding to what happened yesterday, not the question of bumping to get attention to your own thread!  I know you don't do that, you've never had to because people respond right away to your threads!  If you and whitney have an issue, I now understand what's going on - however, you surprised me when you started name-calling and being harsh - if you two can't get along, that's fine, agree to disagree and please leave each other alone, ok?  I hate to see all this anger - its only 8:30 am here in paradise and I am already getting sad!  sad

    ridiculous thread by far. good job jumping on someone's case who was just bringing up a problem. maybe it was a valid issue, maybe not. who cares. you called her stupid, whiney, what's next?  good job attacking her. she's been here much longer than you; maybe she is right.

    maybe she didn't see your apology. did you think of that? maybe you should think about other people and their feelings. did she call you stupid or what you were doing stupid? there's a difference.

    bumping is cluttering issue no matter who does it.

    in a way, taking away the forum altogether would reduce the childish banter and attacks.

    you're not the victim here. did you think maybe the person you and the others are attacking has been made the victim.

      maybe she didn't see your apology. did you think of that? maybe you should think about other people and their feelings. did she call you stupid or what you were doing stupid? there's a difference.

      the discussion should be why you're being rude. she claims you've been harassing her, yet you say she's harassing you. did you follow her around the forum as she claims?

      you're now saying she's sad. why? what says she's sad? is it bc she called you out? probably. you're the pissed off one. she just seems to want the forum cleaned up. good job running off a more productive hubber than yourself.

The original pushing and shoving which should have been enough has spawned a mass playground fight. Just an observation, but the humorous stuff seemed to peter out by mid point and now it is just a meaningless slanging match.

    Nothing like a legitimate and simple question to bring out some of Hubpages sockpuppets, I think Whitney raised a valid point in light of a few silly threads which may step on others toes with serious discussions.

    I think that bumping is ok, but if you have multiple accounts and are signing in and out to answer your own post, then that defeats the whole point of a forum opening post and puts you in a style of class as Billy no mates.

    And really people should stick to the opening post as a guideline for the forum topic and have respect for each other when posting forum threads.....
