I have noticed an absence of a few Hubbers in the forums of recent times. Are people really busy gearing up for Christmas or have they been naughty and are in the forum ban sin bin again?
I think some folks don't like the weirdness that happens in the forums and have decided to steer clear, others may well have been banned too. Me I am trying to keep busy with a whole host of things so I only pop in from time to time when I am getting tired and want to mess about without it being work
Heya Travel, Kirsten and Klara,
Travel: Some of the usual suspects Mark, Misha, Earnest, Ryan, was gonna also say Oli, but seen a recent post from him and missing a couple of other regs (names escape me at the mo).
Klara: I think your guys beat Orlando, and ya got the Timberwolves next week.
Kirsten: Yeah, I usually come through the forums to either do a drive by funny (drop in a joke or funny comment and then leave the forum for that day)
Some are banned, I think - did you see that Facebook group created for them to gripe at?
Well......... it's become boring for a lot of us for numerous reasons
For me... the forums haven't been the same since The Moose stopped leaving her UFO here!
I left for awhile because of a personal thing I had to deal with.
Everything went to hell just after I jumped on board with the $100 Hub. Haven't written it even yet!
Anyway when I got back, I noticed lots of of MIA hubbers. Bummer.
Ha! mostly we all come into the forums these days to discuss who is MIA! so that got a little boring for me, and now I just read and move on without saying much - it seems most people's humor has abandoned them, except for Randy - "banned on the run!"
Banned On The Run - was definitely Paul McCartney and Wings

There are a lot of us who haven't been feeling safe on the forums. They've felt stalked, harassed and browbeaten.Sadly, some folks go with the letter of the law, but not the spirit of it in their posts.For an excellent post on why we need Forum Moderators, check out what Makingamark says here...

How do Hubbers get banned from forums?I've noticed people on Hubpages mentioning that they've been, or are being, banned from the forums. How does this happen? What rules do you have to break to get banned?

I just noticed that there are advertisements underneath the threads in the forums. Is that normal?

Just an idea I'm tossing out there. How about HP declaring on Monday a blanket forum amnesty for all forum-banned Hubbers?I'm saying Monday so that HP has the weekend to mull the idea over.I am not suggesting any changes to forum rules. If HP grants the amnesty, and a Hubber turns around and...

I have noticed that an increasing number of people seem to have joined this site merely to spam religion on the forum. This would be okay if it was not for the fact that this is a forum for writers, not theists.I am all for having a community forum, but I believe it should be a community forum for...
