    I asked a question about getting help with an abusive child and didnt say anything to threaten anyone -  - but I got banned ? I get chased around the forums by some weird chick that insists on pushing her opinions on me - I ask her to go away - she threatens to react to me in bad ways and she still hangs out in the forums - what gives? I dont get it - what does it take to get banned ? someone just hitting the button or what?

      Banned from what?

      Since you are posting here, I'm assuming you aren't banned here.

        first ban typicaly is from the forums for 3 days.

        Starme, you should have gotten an email, with a link to the "offending comment". email the HP admin maybe?

            Hello Starme77,

            We sent you an email at 3:05 on Wednesday regarding your 1 day ban. I'll repost what was sent to you, in case you didn't get it.


            You have received a one-day forum ban for this post: (link)

            In the future, please ignore hubbers who you do not get along with. We cannot keep certain hubbers from commenting in a public forum. If you feel the content of the response is a personal attack or if you feel you are the victim of persistent harassment, please flag the post or send us an email and we will review the situation.


            If you have a question about our moderating decision, it is best to email us directly rather than create a thread on the topic in the forums.

            I saw nothing of starme and 2 other people being flat out nasty, is what I meant. Based on that link.

        Marisa Wrightposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        Yes, that's a personal attack, but it's a mild one - which is probably why the ban was only a day.  Usually your first ban would be 3 days. 

        A ban is often about ensuring people have time to calm down before a disagreement escalates into an all-out war.

        However, if you want to know why you were banned, the sensible thing would be to reply to the notification email and ask why.  Coming on to the forums to ask, seems like attention-seeking.

          What's wrong with attention-seeking, Marisa? Isn't every post on forums seeking others attention?

    That post wouldn't get an ant stepped on. Just read it and there is not anything worth banning someone over. The only thing I could derive from it, was that HubPages banned both for one day, to let cooler heads prevail.

    Otherwise, nothing really.

    Okay, on to better topics....I hope you are doing okay Starme? smile

    so you never received an email with a link to an offending post?  weird.

    (yes, I've had pets and I know pets can be calming.  but like I said, I didn't get it.  not intending to be insulting or anything like that, but whenever I hear abusive and animals together I think jeffrey dahmer)

    Hope you get things for your family sorted out. smile

      starme77posted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Rafini - no offense , but I wonder how much you scan and how much you actually read before you make your assumptions, I would never put an animal in harms way o.k , no animal was abused in any way , I got my kid a rabbit because I know my kid and I know he has love in him - he is simply confused and scared and messed up on top of being a normal teenager with all of the confusion that it entails, in order to help have a balance - in order to help him to be calm and to bring out the loving nature that is deep inside him - and guess what - it worked - that little girl bunny - he named her Daisy and instead of talking of his problems on the way to school he talks about Daisy - its apparent to me that this little Rabbit is helping my sons mental stability  - even if it  the rabbit isnt fixing it completly - it is helpiing and any bit of help is better than none

        smile  I'm glad it worked.

        I just want to repeat, I didn't get it and I didn't intend to offend.  I wasn't making an assumption, it's just the way my mind works.   Sorry if I upset you.

        1. starme77 profile image71
          starme77posted 8 years agoin reply to this

          you didnt upset me - I am really terrible at talking but good at expressing through writing - but sometimes - when I am upset I am terrible at both ,  so I hope to have not offended you smile cheers smile and have a great day!
