    I'm not sure if this is the correct category to put this in, so I'm sorry if I put it in the wrong place.

    I just wanted to thank my followers, especially those that have offered their words of support. For the last few weeks, HubPages is what kept my level of happiness up. Every time I logged in, I had a few new followers and maybe a kind comment or two, but I have come to realize today that this may not be the place for me.

    Today I offered an opinion, possibly an opinion I should have kept to myself. And even though I felt that I made a valid point, obviously others did not. (Because you know, HP staff members should cater to your every whim and want even if it does go against their TOS *rolling eyes*)

    I logged in five hours later to find a comment on my newest hub, a hub I wrote just for the heck of it. I wasn't really aiming for a masterpiece in literature (I mean, it was a RECIPE, for goodness' sake!) and I think the person knew this, but the comment was very rude and... it upset me.

    So... I'm taking a break from HP. I have come to the realization that, if immature Hubbers who cannot handle someone disagreeing with their opinions are going to attack my writing, I'm too sensitive to be here right now.

    Right, so if I come back, I may regret posting this, but I just wanted to thank my followers, the people who have been so helpful in the forums, and the people who have actually offered good debates in the forums.

    Just watch, I'll probably be back in a few days or a week. There are so many here that really do inspire me, like Lyricsingray, for instance. But if I don't come back, I just wanted to thank everyone who welcomed me with open arms (Err, keyboards?) and let anyone who may wonder about me know what happened. Bye for now, everybody smile

      Pani, please don't let that little altercation upset you. I made exactly your mistake, two years ago when I joined HubPages.

      I had been a very active member of another community and in my enthusiasm, jumped in with both feet, trying to be a good citizen of HubPages.  All I did was question the value of some extremely short Hubs.  Little did I know, the writer was someone very popular on HP, and I got well and truly stomped on.

      I got over it, and I'm still here.  So please, take a deep breath, and decide to stick around!

        I have learned sometimes it is better for me to say nothing at all.
        It is so true what you say.

      You got one nasty comment, but you have alot of followers who support you.  Focus on them and not that one other person.  And, if you do get a comment that is nasty...you don't have to "accept" it.  Deny it and move on.

    {{{HUGS}}} I hear you. I hope you'll come back. I really enjoy your forum posts and your hubs, but I do understand needing to get things together in your head as well. Try not to let what other people do bog you down.

    Blessings and light your way.

    Good luck with whatever you choose to do smileI have learned since being here sometimes it is better to keep my thoughts to myself if I feel they are going to turn into confrontations. No-one wins in arguements. smile

    i totally understand where you are coming from as i encountered such a thing the first few days i was even signed up ... i talked to some other people who helped me through it and showed me that these people are not worth "giving up" (only way i know to put it)on everything i had hoped to do here. i am thankful that these people did this because i do enjoy my time here.

    I have learned to just ignore or steer clear from such people who want to be rude and just down right cruel.

    now i get along with everyone as we all worked it out and it was all a misunderstanding. though i know this from the way it sounds is more than a misunderstanding, you will be missed and only you know what is right for you. never regret anything you say because for someone it may have been worth you saying it and opening others eyes.

    there will always be bullspit drama anywhere you go. the best thing to do is know that in your heart it felt right no matter who it offends or upsets because the number one person you have to think about is YOU.

    Basically don't listen to one bad comment and let it upset you to the point of leaving ... it's not worth it. you are loved here in the forums and your hubs! **HUGS**

    Don't be so fragile !!    A forum is a place to get roughed up a bit and bad comments on a recipe aint gonna kill you !   
    And even those of us who disagree with some of your views like to see you here.

    Put the dummy back in, get that rattle back in the pram and get back posting!

    Firstly, I would like to note how extremely embarrassed I am that my break from HP only lasted two days.

    Secondly, I'd like to thank everyone who replied here, especially Faybe. Faybe emailed me and pointed me in the direction of some fantastic hubs that really shed some light on how I was feeling. (Although, Faybe, I don't do the whole armpit fart thing lol)

    I'm still going to try to cut back on HP a bit, but I'll be around. I guess I've become one of those "forum lurkers" that will never just go away. And, of course, I can't just give up writing my hubs. I even got about three new ideas while I was gone! Anyway, my point is that you are stuck with me! lol
