I have only had a couple people leave mean comments. They don't even have the guts to use their logon name as the name. They actually log off just so they can place "anonymous" messages about a hub of mine. Okay, so if you want to give me constructive criticism at least have the guts to tell me who you are so if I have questions, I can ask you what you mean. But if you are just going to leave a short message on a hub just to say it sucks, with no constructive criticism and don't even have the guts to tell me who you are... Don't. Has anyone else had anyone do this to them?
I've been fortunate, angela_michelle. Nothing mean or untoward has been left on my hubs. I so agree that people who are such cowards should at least have the cojones to at least identify themselves. Anonymity can be misused, and obviously has been on your writings.
Are you sure they are from HP? Just ignore or delete it, you own your hub, so you have the option to do that.
Some people are mean and you can't change that anymore.
I agree with prettydarkhorse - you are giving these people way too much energy. Delete the comments if you don't want them on your hubs, or reply to them and forget it. Being mean is their problem, not yours!
I did delete this comment. I had to delete one a few months ago because they disagreed with something I posted. This time, they felt my article was stupid.
Sounds like democrats! Just ignore them, they'll go away soon enough!
They might not be members or Democrats...just because you would do something like that does not mean everyone would.
I had a similar problem on another account. Firstly, I set my Comments Box to not show comments until approved, then, as they arrived, deleted inappropriate comments. This made it absolutely pointless for the commenter to leave such a comment, because nobody, except me, would ever see it. It solved the problem.
Yeah... I write a lot about music, and a couple of times, someone would critique not my selections, but the actual singers, or say I have poor taste. That's the worst I've had, but still I wonder... Why would they take not only the time to read through an entire list they don't agree with and THEN waste more time to write about it?
It sounds silly to be mean. Life's much easier when you're nice and easygoing
A big thumbs up to the last sentence! What goes around comes around, and with a mean attitude you will attract the same to yourself.

Why is it when you provide an act of kindness to someone they'll try to run you over with their car? If everyone, each day, made one person laugh, and then that person made someone laugh, it would be such a better world. Besides, it's takes less muscles to smile than to frown. Or maybe we can...

How should I respond to hubbers who leave me mean comments that upset me?

Why do some people like to be mean?I really struggle to understand why so many people who live in the same world as me get a kick out of hurting others, are happy as long as someone else is miserable and get horribly angry with jealousy when they see that someone (even a friend or a family member)...
