    I am going to vent here even though I thought I had addressed the issue in my comments where I was also chastised by the same person. It really doesn't bother me if someone doesn't like what I write, I am aware some of my stuff is edgy. When this person then goes on to write a HUB questioning the quality of HUBs being written and then quotes my HUb as an example I find that to be an act of war. Maybe I don't want toi read about plywood fishtanks or how to make cupcakes any more than someone wants to read about panhandling kids. Perhaps one of the 12,000 people who came to read about introducing a stripper to your family will hit a wrong button and end up on a different writers HUB.
    Perhaps it is this short sightedness that forces this particular person to condone the begging of her children for strangers money  to pay for school activities that all of the tattoo money could have been spent towards.
    Maybe she can go open her own site and lay out clear parameters as to what she thinks is good and bad.
    Or maybe she can just shut up and worry bout her own writing and raise her kids.

      Did this person mention you in a hub by name? Just ignore that Hubber, it is not worth it smile.

      The hub that she is bit**ing about is one of my favorites. If she's ranting about your hubs, she must be reading your hubs. It still counts as traffic, right?

    funnebone - I have always found your hubs amusing and irreverent.

    But you have to dish the dirt smile

    Who exactly attacked you or your choice of subject matter?

    I think I found her, one of her hubs has 2 comments...by herself...
    And her quality of writing is hardly anything to celebrate.

    I had commented earlier about the bad hubs. But I didn't realize she chose specific hubs to criticize. I sent her another comment. I mentioned spelling errors, grammatical errors and run on sentences, which all occur in her hub.

      At the risk of giving her free publicity, how did you find the hub in question? I am curious to read it too.

        I searched under plywood and then got her username and looked for a hub criticising hub pages big_smile

        I noticed, she's still talking about bad hubs...and she thinks she is one of the good writers...

    Hey Funnebone, you have a huge fan base and obviously lots of traffic. I know what I am likely going to read when I go to one of your Hubs.  Funny, and yes, edgy!  But that is what makes your stuff unique!  Just don't worry about what others say, unless it looks like there is authority behind it.  smile

    It's hard to have people bashing your hubs like that, but I just checked out yours and they're not bad. Interesting, to say the least.

    SweetiePie, funnebone said he hub was quoted in the hub written by the other person.

      SweetiePieposted 16 years agoin reply to this

      I realized he said that Whitney smile.  That is why I asked did this person mention him by name smile.  If not I told Funnebone just to ignore it because honestly I do not think it is worth it.  I am his fan and was trying to be helpful smile.

    I think I know what you are talking about:

    http://hubpages.com/hub/where-have-all- … -hubs-gone

    This "lady" announced war on the whole community, though. Just look at this:

    Hey, lady, I would like to know how Mark or SunSeven or myself even or hundreds other people are breaking the rules to get more fans than you?

    You, too, have more fans than her - so you have to fight for your right to have them! wink

    If that's the one, I just have one question:

    What is a Huber? big_smile

    I read that hub that she referred to also and I thought it was great smile

    funnebone,  you have every right to rant about this, in my opinion. I noticed she left a comment on someone else's hub complaining about that naughty hub of yours.  I should say, that hub was inspiring to me as a mom - I now have the strength and knowledge to resist letting my children be coerced into panhandling by well meaning girls scout leaders. smile

    You are well loved here for your work. She is one "huber" and she does not have an angry mob behind her waiting to stone you.

      I let the Hubber who wrote about Funnebone know she should take that part out of her Hub.  Hopefully she will do that smile.

    Why can't we all just get along?

    1. SweetiePie profile image82
      SweetiePieposted 16 years agoin reply to this

      This is what I am trying to do.  I am trying to help them get along.  I just do not like it when misunderstandings get blown out of proportion.  You are right, we should all get along.

  13. Uninvited Writer profile image80
    Uninvited Writerposted 16 years ago

    I agree people should all get along. But they also shouldn't write hubs that are critical of other Hubbers if they don't want people to get upset. I subscribe to the belief that those who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.

    I thank all of you for you kind words. The outpouring of support is so moving it almost makes me feel as though I should put pants on while I type this. I didn't know that this person had posted about me in additional hubs comments and after reading things she says I now realize that she may be mentally challenged to some degree. The ego is quite a funny little mechanism in that I felt much more anger from 2 bad comments than jubilation from 60 positive ones left on the same HUB. I don't know why she felt she would get away with going on this campaign to drag me down given in the hub she found so offensive I rip on children which should be a clear indication that I have a ruthless and unforgiving nature. This should not overshadow my charm and dimples which are available for the lovely ladies..wink wink sweetiepie.
    Once again thanks, I feel vindicated.+

    Thanks to this thread I am now aware of your humor too. 
    Thanks for sharing your vast wit.   

    Re: Range War.   Haven't you seen my videos yet?   

    WAR IS OVER if you want it. 

    It's posted clearly for all to see. 

    I enjoyed the mail order bride one a lot.  Why do I feel like that wasn't really the naughty one.   Please post the link if there is another one.  Esp. if she has comments.  I didn't see any.  Deleted perhaps...

    Pardon me, I've only been here a few months, so maybe I don't know what I'm talking about, but....

    Is that Hub proper hub material?  The author even states that a hub is meant to be a resource source, informative, yet that hub is nothing more than a rant/vent that should have been located in a forum.

    Just my opinion, though I'm open to hearing that I'm mistaken if I am.

    I am brand spanking new here, but I have been visiting hubs to get an idea of how to present my material, and I believe each of my hubs has benefited from it.  I found her, and didn't give her hub any comment at all, just a thumbs down.  I happen to like Funnybones ideas.  I cringe every time my grandchildren come to me with an overpriced box of cookies, candy bar, or 'gift idea' around the holidays.  Just another guilt trip coming thru the door!  My motto is, to give positive input where it's due, and go out of your way to ignore the negative behavior.  Only then will it go away.

    P.S. Have you deleted her from your fans yet?

    I think that in a society that values free speech, we all have the right to agree to disagree, but NOT to be disagreeable in the process.

    The other thought I have is that it's impossible to win an argument over a matter of taste, because both people end up winning. In the end, you just have to accept that your brand of humor is not up her alley, and you're not likely to have her in your fanclub.

    I haven't read her hub, but it sounds like she hasn't got much of a fan base, and I wouldn't worry about it. One of the things I like about hubbing is that there is a real sense of community here, and if she likes to take shots at fellow hubbers, she will soon find herself with even even smaller audience.
