I mean seriously...I have ran across quite a few rude ppl today and am just wondering..have all the cool nice ppl left and the rude ppl decide to come out and play? or is there a full moon I don't know about?
I hate it too Lyrics and I am with you...I'm done with the damn forums...nothing but rudeness on here Good luck everyone! I'll be writing hubs only from now on and concentrating on writing my books as well as getting a house and job.
Sounds like a plan!... good on you! hubpage writing is far better and my books beckon too, I'll pop by in the forums to deliver a few one liners every now and then and leave the forum sock puppets to play!!!
did you get a chance to respond directly to the rude people? No one has been directly rude to me on the forums, ever, yet. Although they have said things "without naming names" and not to me that I figured applied to me - well, here's what I see happening - someone doesn't like something someone else does
they say they don't like it (in a veiled way) to someone else
this third person agrees and says things about the person they both don't like
then other people jump in to defend both sides
FREE FOR ALL!
huge waste of time, and no fun. That's my take. I apologize directly to you if you have found anything I've said directly or indirectly rude. I don't like rudeness.
yep, Im thinking of avoiding this place altogether. it use to be awesome to come here blow off steam, not now. little groups forming, threads about personal feelings and private discussions, one being opened every 3 minutes, ppl out to see whos better or right. honestly, i can't stand it here im going to clean my toilets i'll have more fun there and less judged or should i open a thread and ask having been here 9 hours some ppl opening threads-same bull attention seeking-this is no longer a community but rather the bronx
Yea I do think that cleaning,packing, hub writing, writing my stories, searching for a jb and home should be my main priority and stay away from the forums...all I see now are rude ppl and it makes me sick. I do get back in their face but I am so sick of it. I mean jeez the preschool kids I use to teach had beetter manners and knew how to act than the "adults" on here.
Lots of things can make people rude. Lack of sunlight, low fronts coming in - they often hit two or three days before a storm, and the dark of the moon certainly does have its effect. One of my friends marks it on her calendar, so that she knows not to schedule anything then, because her kids cry at everything during this phase of the moon.
My partner and I used to have terrific rows at times, although we are usually very happy together. I found they mainly coincided with the dark of the moon. We keep a watch on the calendar. As the dark phase approaches, we try our best to be as gentle with each other as possible. It has made a big difference
Crazd, when I first came to hubpages, I didn't even know what a forum was. I had plenty of fun - was totally addicted - just reading hubs and enjoying other hubbers, without the forums. I miss it, and have half a mind to go back to reading and commenting on hubs, getting to know people in that manner.
There are many new authors here, who I have never seen on the forums. This is not the only way to meet people, so don't be discouraged!
I have been amused at everything that has been going on in the forums today. It seems like lines are being drawn in the sand and some are rebellious against the aspect of a true community.
I've noticed much going on today, and some people were right on some points and others were right on some points, but apparently HubPages' Community Forum, really has become a community.
It seems like it's got a certain type of person depicted and that's how it should be? Yet, most people don't know anything about basic civility.
I'm not calling anyone out, it's just something I noticed today, watching the bantering back and forth.
I guess it depends on what HubPages really wants, but is gauged by what the writers want to be comfortable. HubPages strives to provide a very unique business writing platform, for all people.
Not just the professional, but the amateur as well. This is where the conflict is rising from. The true professionals, who work diligently make their earnings here, would want a professional atmosphere at all time, even in all threads.
The newbies, free thinkers and the alike, who write because for whatever reason, and have no plans of making money? Then, the professionals think that their voice doesn't count or have enough weight, in the community?
This is wrong. Everyone has a right to their opinions and usually, people who have the right to their opinions do voice them.
But, as I said in the beginning of my long post. I'm doing well.
In the mother of all ironies, I witnessed a fight break out over, get this, friendliness. A tried and true confederate soldier descentant was arguing that Southerners were by far nicer and kinder than Yankees and...
