In lue of King Larry being indefinitely banned from forums, he's asked me as a personal favor to post this on here to see if there needs to be any changes made. As we wouldn't want another LeBron James hub incident, where it gets unpublished again. therefore, he wanted me to put up here early to see what the masses think first before publishing...
King Larry's Hot Dog and Poker Hub
So this is it folks? We've grown so desperate for the next big sporting event that we have the audacity to even consider hot dog eating contest and poker sports? Seriously? Has the world suddenly suffered from mass retardation, or am I just j***ing off here? Don't answer that, as that's a rhetorical question. For those that don't know what means, then go....well never mind. Don't want hubpages, unpublishing my hub again, like they did with LeBron James. I guess SOMEONE on the hubpages staff must be working for Mr. James. Oh well, just another example of how the man is keeping me down. Damn you hubpages staff!!!
Anyways, how can we allow this to happen folks? Why in the hell is hot dog eating and poker considered sports? Are we that desperate for entertainment? Or morbidly obessed fat people so desperate to hang on to sports fame that they can't have, so they have to make up an event that even a freaking idiot could do? I mean seriously, when does EATING...qualify as a damn sport? Seriously? When? I always thought sports were sports when it involved activities that...seldom few had the commitment and TALENT to do! Not just some event any fat moron could do off the street. Sheesh, no wonder why obessity is so high in this country, as we celebrate heroes like Kobeyashi and compare him to Michael Jordan. Kobeyashi and Jordan in the same sentence? Please...Kobeyashi isn't even fit to wipe Jordan's butt..let alone be compared to him.
Then we get down to poker where it takes ZERO skill to win at all. Just blind freaking luck. Hell, you might as well consider other gambling games like roullette or craps then as sports, as they take no skill to do either. Just blind luck. Unless you cheat though I do. Yeah, I said it. I cheat ALL the time at poker, so you want to fight about it? Oh by the way in case I owe you money...um...he has it...(points at the man across the street). Yeah, go after him, as I told him to give you the money. Anyways, I just think it's funny on how America has suffered and extreme case of MASS RETARDATION to even consider these sports. Heck, the hot dog eating contest alone puts all the town w**** to shame!
King Larry has been banned?
i liked that little guy...i never took him seriously, and his rants were all in good fun...kind of like that old man sitting on a park bench waving his cane at passers-by
BRING BACK LARRY
BRING BACK LARRY
Why does he need the opinion of the forum members? Excuse me, but we don't pay his wages!
If he thinks it might get unpublished, contact Hubpage's staff. I thought Extreme hub makeover was for newbies, not a platform for established hubbers.
Steve aren't YOU King Larry? Hm......., I thought for sure you were. I must be confused.
i am? really? that's news to me. the last time i looked into a mirror, i thought that handsome son of a gun was me, but hold on...i'll check...
yep it's still me.
I don't consider them sports. I think the sports channels were desperate to fill up their air time.
I am not a fan of King Larry :-) Just not my cup of tea.
Sorry he got banned, though. What did he do ?
It surprises me, too, that he got banned. I only saw him on the Forums a couple of days ago and, as I stated in another thread, I found him pretty cool.
So, what happened? When? Why? How?
probably someone took offense to a joke. same old same old.
Inflammatory comments in the forums?
Posting content from a hub that had been unpublished in the forums?
We do not allow users to post to the forums with sock puppet accounts.
Really? Gee, it's good to know they finally stopped it.
I can't really say exactly why he got banned, but he'll still publish hubs though, so you don't have to worry about that. just not in forums. that's all. anyways, was there any constructive criticism to his hub that you guys think he should change?
I've read the above (Hub Text), but have to see the actual Hub. So I'll go and do that now - you haven't included a link here.
Yeah, it's quite entertaining. It's typical King Larry. Nothing needs to be changed.
Hope it gets some good photos. Maybe a video of people eating hotdogs could be fun.
For me, it doesn't condone gambling at all ... only cheating. I think it should be okay.
Constructive criticism: write a hub
That little snippet of drivel doesnt qualify as a hub, its in its best showcase now, a short forum post.
Tell him to expand on the Nascar Sucks rant, now thats something I could get behind!
I'm taking the risk of responding here, never know when those untouchables like King Larry can lure me into saying something bad!
hot dogs? they're for eating
poker? it's a game, folks! Not fun to watch people playing if you're not in the game yourself. Plus it is gambling, which is not permitted here on HubPages - that is, encouraging it isn't allowed.
King Larry - now he's just kinda ridiculous, isn't he? I mean he swears all the time and it must take a lot of time to put all those ****s in and he tries to act tough, but he is a big old softy. Knowing him, he probably didn't even get banned, just wants some attention!! So as long as Stevennix doesn't get banned we'll be cool!
okay. king larry finished his hub. let me know what you think of it, so i can relay the message.
< no self-promoting links.>
he's me, but now that everyone on here knows that. im cancelling his account. sorry, i just can't risk him talking about controversial subjects and possibly losing my own fans that follow my reviews. i can't allow that.
Don't be so silly. That is a horrible idea. Don't cancel the account. THe hubs will keep on making you money, no matter what. So leave it!!!
Steve....., stop! Seriously- don't hurt your revenue. Keep the hubber open. It only makes good business sense. I have two accounts. IEsMedical's. So who cares, it is just another way to make more money.
yeah, maybe your right. however, i can't write anything with him anymore, as i would hate for reprisals against my film reviews hubs to suffer if i should choose to pick a too controversial topic for larry. thus, i'll leave them. i just can't write anymore hubs with him...otherwise i might lose my fans on this account. i can't risk that...
Steve, the only people who know you're the same person are the people reading this thread. If they're upset about you being King Larry, they'll go and unfollow you right now - so it's too late to change that.
New followers won't ever see this thread as by that time, it'll be well and truly buried.
They won't. You're just being silly.
Hubpages.com hubber traffic doesn't make you money. It is the other people coming in from the web that make you money. So really who cares what us hubbers think.
I mean it is not like we can stop your hubs from gaining Internet traffic. You know- two thirds of my traffic is from Google search. Two-thirds. Next year, I fully see my hub traffic at the 3/4 mark. Do you see what I'm trying to tell you? Keep the account open, and leave it be. Open a new one.
hmm...im beginning to think i should now cancel king larry's account, since norah blew my cover here. lol. the reason why king larry was originally created to make rant hubs is the exact same reason Bruce Wayne needs batman to fight crime. to prevent any reprisals, if you know what i mean. essentially king larry was going to keep people from reprising and attacking me if i ever wanted to tack on controversial subject matter. if they insult me, it wouldn't matter. they'd be insulting larry. lol. however, i know what i must do. king larry had a great run, but the experiment failed....
Stevennix, now we all know why King Larry was banned. If you have more than one HubPages account, you can only use ONE of them to post on the forums. Remember that in future!
You don't have to cancel Larry = silly! You can have multiple accounts you just can't bring them into the forums with you! You have to choose just one account to be on the forums. Since so many people already knew about Larry and you (that's sounds funny!) what does it matter anyhow! I say, Larry stays, and he is still the King of Larrys!
I doubt King Larry makes money.
This thread is barely seen and easily forgotten, if you like writing with your King Larry persona dont let this stop you.
Not to mention that my guess is a good number of hubbers do not bother to read an entire thread before they post.
yeah, your right. okay, you all convinced me. king larry stays then. thanks guys for your input on this.
Ah sure, anytime. I'm glad you are keeping it.
Seriously, if you cannot publish new hubs with this account, you should try opening up a new one. Call it "King Larry, Jr." if you like, but, hubpages.com is about making money after all.
oh, good! didn't see this post before I posted the other one.

Why some people get banned from hubpages??
by leeberttea 9 years ago
... administer the forums?I asked a similar question in a poll in a recent Hub and though I had many views I didn't get many votes. Now I wonder are people afraid of the consequences if they post their votes or their views?
by Csaba Bebesai 7 years ago
http://randygodwin.hubpages.com/hub/Goo … ges-ForumsRandy was outspoken of the 'malicious' practices of HubPages and it's staff. Now, in this hub where he explains what abuse he suffered, a hubber called Drax, so-called poet, came and called him - 'who rattled your cage... fuck off', ' it is...

I understand that our girl, one of our favorite hubbers was banned yesterday. She was not told why she was banned. Today is her birthday and she cannot post on the forums because of this ban. Does anyone knows why she was banned?

Hey peeps! I just published two hubs recently - one on the Kony 2012 scam and another on Dominica (the West Indian Island in the Caribbean that I live on)...Although the Kony Hub is getting reasonable views, I feel the traffic should be much higher as the topic is one of the leading news stories...
