Come on HubPages, closing threads all the time, is only going to create more animosity towards one another. The thread was drawing to end on it's own. So why close is Mauddie? I don't get that. Now nobody gets to say their sorry, and work things out to be better hubbers.
Can you not see that closing to reply too early, is like hubbers abusing the report button. How do you expect new hubbers to learn what the established barriers are, if you do it for them all the time? And.....
I give up.
Hubbers, <link snipped> has a wonderful, free spirited forum. Come join.
I closed the thread. There were a great deal of reports issued, so before things spiralled completely out of control, I closed it. I'm not clear on what the purpose of the thread was, other than to complain and bring up a discussion that evidently caused problems.
Please feel free to use other forums that you feel more comfortable with, but please refrain from creating threads for the sole purpose of promoting a link.
Well you are wrong. It is just that <link snipped>, doesn't close threads, just because a staff member thinks it should. Got it? Good. I didn't post the link for personal gain. If I would have, don't you think I would have included my profile name? Yeah- I would have. Please...
Whatever. Can you tell I don't appreciate false accusations? No matter who you might be. You know, many of us hubbers here bring business to HubPages. Without hubbers, there would be no HubPages. So I'd be careful before accusing them of false wrong doings.
I agree, it's ridiculous to be closing threads like that...but it's not our business either. *shrug* I might check out your suggestion. I suppose I'd better do it before it gets snipped or something. We're probably not allowed to post about the "competition."
Here is what you can do just send an e-mail to the person that you would like to apology to. Hubpages closes threads for a reason, I do not know anything about the thread you are discussing but apparently I believe it may have began to get out of hand. Go back to that thread and read everyone's comments I can bet there was something going on for hubpages to close it. Intimate and Glass all will be fine just focus on what you do well and that is honestly writing those wonderful hubs. Have a wonderful day and keep your heads up!
Thanks AE...It doesn't really bother me too much one way or the other; Hubpages is what it is, and they're pretty clear about it up front. I'm sure they have their reasons...I just don't understand them all the time. I shouldn't think anyone would really care if some of the Hubbers were arguing with one another (and some of them were). The thing that does sort of bug me is that I think sometimes people ought to be left alone to sort it out themselves--I mean, what harm can the words in a forum do? Perhaps I am naive. But you're right, might as well get on with the good stuff.
Eh...Not usually in my experience. We just happened to be in the midst of a real lively one at the time. The majority of threads remain open as long as people are remotely civil. I have noticed that HP likes to close things down that even remotely question their decisions though. Just an observation.
Well if that hokey thread is closed then it is well and good. What's point in digging each others grave over there ? Seriously, if anyone opens such thread just to dig something from past then it's worth to close, forget freedom of speech and all. There is no point in doing some drama against each other for the sake of speech.
Please don't hesitate to report anyone who engages in personal attacks, uses excessive vulgarity directed at yourself or another user, or any other behavior that is excessively offensive. We don't necessarily agree with everything, but we aren't unreasonable.
I was kind of sorry they closed it, but when I reviewed it I saw it to be getting pointless and leading to more pointlessness - so let's just get on with it, and hope something good comes of it. There is a lot to be learned about anger and controlling it. All kinds of people find it very hard to admit they have a problem of any kind, but especially anger. We all like to feel that our anger is justified and necessary. I see anger as one of the indications that something is wrong, personally, and I just try to do the right thing. Sometimes, the right thing is to stop talking to each other for awhile, when people are making personal attacks. Other times it is just good to clear the air, and then trust each other not to be too mean.
Yes more censorship. I don't like when people start to dig something from past and start mud-slinging. What's is the point ? What we are going to accomplish with that ?
Burning desire to do time-pass ?
What was the purpose of thread ? Show censorship of HP ? Let me tell you, the way we spam,flirt and make personal remarks if it were any other community mods/admin take few seconds to kick for such behavior. We are getting way too much freedom than others.There is hardly any hubber out here who follows some rules.
Yeah, if you followed some threads last few weeks, people are making too much of personal remarks. And that is not at all acceptable for any community. If it's freedom then i prefer threads getting closed.
I don't know what communities you're a part of...but other forums I've participated in have few, if any, rules other than those about breaking their stuff (i.e., hacking) and severe (and I do mean SEVERE) personal attacks. I had to learn REAL quick when I got here that this wasn't that kind of place.
My posts don't speak crap about hating hubpages. You are the only hater in the bunch.
Everybody knows that we all can count on Misha, to spread the wealth of hate mongering- day after day. Especially if that person isn't pretty, fat, a competitive male hubber, not a hubpage staff member, and on and on and on.
This thread has degenerated into bickering and no longer serves a purpose. Therefore, it is now closed. If you have any questions about the forum rules or why a specific thread was closed, you are free to email us and ask.
I just noticed that Matthew replied to a question from a Hubber and immediately closed the threadThere used to be an unspoken policy on the forums - a thread was only closed if things got too heated and...
Seems like there are a noticeable number of forum threads closed to reply. Veteran hubbers, are the current numbers typical? Some threads I assume get closed to reply because the topic is controversial or...
