If I were to publish a hub that was just bad as in low quality is it likely someone will say, "hey man about that hub... frankly its really crappy." Usually I assume noone will say anything negative unless forced to give a candid opinion but I'm still curious what others think?
I think most of the time people are more likely to comment on someone's opinion than on the quality of the Hub. I think if people run into really horribly low-quality Hubs they may just click away or else vote them down, and move on.
Sometimes it seems like the writers here are engaging in a mutual admiration marathon, but on the whole, I believe people are honest when commenting. If I'm not impressed with a hub, I think about what my opinion would mean to the author. If it's not constructive, I choose not to leave it.
So far I haven't seen it. I've been criticized for my content, but haven't seen anyone say anything negative...except in the Extreme Hub Makeover forum, and then it's a response to someone asking and not a nasty comment.
I didn't mean like a nasty comment. I meant does anyone give a heads up in case someones just oblivious?
You're here for money or for creative writing ? Depending on that answer definition of *crappy hub* will change. Product hubs are often crappy(as in exaggerated) but we all do that to earn money. My experience with serious writing hubs is that they'll earn you no money cause you're getting attention of reader to text but not ads(in this case affiliate links will earn)P:S- I write both type of hubs and i'm trying to improve myself with every hub. I've one high traffic hub where there are no comments at all(but there are clicks).
If you come across a hub that you feel is grossly sub-standard: low quality, low word count (which they would already have been warned about while creating the hub), or just plain awful, you can contact the author privately, via their email, rather than leaving a comment, and politely offer some help.
If after you've looked at a number of their hubs, and their content is consistently awful - and I do mean REALLY awful, or objectionable (and contravenes Hub Pages standards) - then by all means flag it for review. That will bring it to the attention of the Hub Pages team, for review.
We are all responsible to flag hubs that are sub-standard or do not meet the Hub Pages criteria.
I would be inclined to offer help first, though. It simply could be a matter of language, or proofreading.
Hope this helps
I'd like to clarify that this is a hypothetical question. I guess I suffer from the constant fear something I'm doing is just crap and noone is willing to tell me.
as for skyfires question I was referring to crapiness in a won't-make-any-money sort of way. though I'm pretty sure a hub designed for income that wasn't even good at that would artistically be in the crapper as well.

I'm just wondering as a newbie here (four weeks yesterday, if my math is right ) if it's common practice for hubbers to write hubs with the intent of ridiculing or tearing apart other hubbers? I've recently experienced this and handled it in my own way well enough (I think--I posted a rebuttal...

There are two newly discovered hubbers who have only posted raw translations by using online translating tool, what they did was merely copy and paste the results without doing any further modifications. From the comments they replied, you can tell they don't really understand much English. Even...

What do you think of getting one-word comments?How do you feel when you get one-word comments on your hubs? I can't decide. I'm really pleased people bother to comment at all, but at the same time much prefer getting longer comments. I don't think I've ever left only a one-word comment on a hub or...

What are the potentially cons of not using a comment box?I'm tired of answering the same questions over and over again. I'm tired of getting rude comments. I'm tired of dealing with it basically. I want to help people, but answering the same question over and over again or having to defend myself...

Why do people post hubs without a comment section?Every now and then I come across hubs with no comment section. Are these the result of simple oversight, or perhaps people not familiar with the various elements you can add to hubs? Or do they just not want to interact? It seems odd... blogs and...

Does anyone ever get other hubbers making comments and then plugging their own hubs by pasting their urls in the comments section? What do you do..do you allow it or deny it?
