You're too talented and too lovely of a person to let the minority get you down. You are a valuable part of this community and we want you here. Please reconsider and sleep on it.
i dont really know you but i like reading your hubs and i know you are a very well known and loved woman here on hubpages.... please stay
Yes Cosette please stay with us...if not in the forums then on hubpages writing your hubs
Expressing your side of the addict issue is important and necessary and I have never read such excellent prose about children of alcoholics as your hub. I hope you do not go, just because you are so valued here and because everyone needs to continue hearing what you have to say about this and other things. And if you run away from it we will lose and you will have failed to use this opportunity to speak for those little ones who can't speak for themselves. Please stay.
Cosette I'm sorry you're unhappy but I'll do whatever I can to help make this better for you!
i may join ya girl, just stay or dont do anything til you sleep on it ok?
I've been keeping a lurking eye on things and I have to jump in now because you should stay. Your writing is awesome and you are such a sweet and kind spirit it would be a shame to see you go.
Shocker to even read this!
There is trouble no matter where we go, but I know that there are far more who would love for your stay. Those taking pot shots are just white noise.
Maybe a break for a few days instead of just leaving town?
Hope that's all it might be...
I don't know what's happened or why everybody wants to leave :s
but doooonnn't I think you should stay!
"Everyone" doesn't want to leave.
There's a relatively small group of Hubbers who see the forums as the most important part of HubPages. They're entitled to that view, but I do think it's a shame if they let other Hubbers upset them to the point where they'll leave the whole site because of it. The audience for their Hubs is far larger outside the HubPages community than inside it.
Shit, and I was just growing to like you today as well, I respect the way you stand up for your beliefs, even if it does mean calling me a repugnant pervert from time to time, it's cool, I've accepted the fact that I am one, and that I'm just going to have to learn to live with it.
Sorry about coming at you tooth and claw a few weeks back, I hadn't slept in days, was in a foul mood, and you caught the brunt of it.
Don't let me, or any other fucker drive you away.
'All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing’
That seemed somehow appropriate.
cosette I really hope you don't go. I would miss you. I haven't been on the forums much lately, but still like knowing you're out there, like when I see your hubs listed in my daily HP email.
Hopefully you saw and will consider Art's post on the other thread. You urged him to cool off, and not delete his BC account [hubs, followers]. He did not listen, and regretted it.
Very sad to hear you may be leaving, I too, might be going MIA very soon....
Kind, decent, loving, all the things we enjoy from you Cosette.
I do hope you stay, you are one very helpful and kind presence here.
I do understand her frustration ... many say ignore it, but when it ends up on so many threads, like a bunch of middle school kids.
and it doesn't happen on every forum as some stated.
Yes Rebekah, but the point is you can take a time out (even a very long one...) from the forums without having to leave HubPages. It's a question of perspective, and I hope Cosette takes some time to think about it.
yes, and I agree... and I really hope she does. she's such a talented writer. I've taken breaks from here, you have to, there's life outside of HP! this is for you cosette.
Hate to be this person, But what happened?!
Cosette, I really hope you don't leave I love reading your work...
Edit: I found the thread. I no longer need or want any explanation.
Sorry to hear Cosette is leaving... or has left. I enjoyed reading her hubs.
Am I too late? I saw her in my list of hubbers I am following whenI first loggedin, but her newest hub siad it was like...6 weeks agoa dn I knwo sh eworte soenr then that. And then I went into teh forums and saw all thats been goign on, and her pic is gone...
Cosette, if your here still and read this, I hope your feeling better today. I hope you changed your mind. If not...I hope you saved a hard copy of your hubs, so you can publish them somewhere else. You put in far too much work to loose them completly. Only you can decide where you want yor work to be shown, and if Hubpages is no longer the place for you, I will miss you. Be happy and at peace.
Cosette...don't leave me...US!!!!! We love you!!!!!!!!!!!!
You are an inspiration and a spark of creativity here at HP! We need you!
Sorry Um new here, but I like her...can neone xplain wat happnd?
Please stay cosette, you and your work will be terribly missed if you go.
thanks very much Wordscribe, and to everyone who left positive comments on this thread. i appreciate it very much, and the Hubteam as well.
I'm glad this seems to be settled. Wordscribe, where is your gum?

Hubpages staff targeted some of my hubs. They are probably right but I wonder why they took 2 years to do it.Anyway if I can't be free in hubpages I guess I'm not doing a lot here.It's been nice knowing you and be a part of this community, but I'll stop comming here.This is a message to all that...

I took a hiatus for awhile from Hub Pages! However, in the past week or so, I have added new hubs participated in forums, asked a question or two, participated with the Hub Hopper, have read some Hubs, yet my Hubber Score is lower than it was when I was doing nothing. I don't get it!

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...

Should stay-at-home moms be given a salary in return for their work?Periodically, there are debates about whether to compensate stay-at-home moms for their work in caring for their children and their home. What do you think about this idea?

Is it all to do with forum politics? The reason for Cosette leaving has just been made clear to me on the 'Pedantic Hubpages' blog post. I am somewhat dissapointed with the result of that, much more dissapointed to lose a hubber that I considered a friend for no apparent reason. A little hurt and...
