    On my hub Missing People someone wrote:

    "i hope they are found this is terrable (comment on me or FOLLOW ME"


    What kind of comment is that supposed to be??

    Is this the new way of getting readers and fans? lol.

      First of all, you need to recognize the person is not even educated enough to properly write and speak the language of HP, the language of America AND the International Language.
      Once you acknowledge that, everything else will fall into place and you will realize there was really no reason to go to all the trouble of starting this forum!
      Know what I mean?

        Yep.

        Seems like there was really no reason for you to comment. Know what I mean?

          true but since you seemed to be upset by this I thought I should remind you that you should not let people like that bother you.

            Well why didn't you just say it like that then? lol

            It didn't really bother me I just thought it was a strange way of getting followers.

    wow, im sorry to hear that.  if it makes you feel any better, when i logged on about over 30 minutes ago, someone left me a comment asking me to call them and left a phone number on one of my hubs.  naturally, i just deleted it and the number wasn't even in this country, so i just disregarded it.  i don't know what it was about, but i honestly don't want to know.  lol.

      I have seen these stupid phone number comments before.

      But this was another hubber, why not just leave normal comments like everyone else.

        yeah, i was just thinking the same thing.  plus, my thoughts are if you want someone to call you, then why the heck do you need to leave it as a comment on a hub?  i mean, it's not like they can't e-mail you through your profile or something.  at least for me.  lol.  however, i just think it's very weird some people do that.

          Mathematically speaking, calling someone normal is about the same as calling them mean ... wink

      BDazzlerposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        'whom'  whom is used for object.  wink

          Close,


          It's used for the indirect object.

          1. Aficionada profile image85
            Aficionadaposted 8 years agoin reply to this

            In this example, whom is neither direct nor indirect object of the verb, but rather the object of the preposition about.  That is, unless you want to consider the verb to be talking about, in which case it's the direct object.

            Hey, maybe I could write a Hub about this.  big_smile big_smile

        Aficionadaposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        In Misha's original statement, "whom" is correct.

        Misha: "I even know whom you are talking about."

        LOL David, you opened a can of worms with that one big_smile

        I for one have no idea, I just felt like writing "whom" in this case smile

    I got a comment before which was long and kooky, the women said she had followed me too an when I checked she wasn't on my followers list, I think that was a trick to try and get me to follow her!
