wow i cant believe someone would actually do that!! i love your work but even if someone disliked it theres no need to leave rude non sense on someones page, i'd like to give that person a piece of my mind!! anyways i hope you get a million good fan mails to counteract that bad one in the near future!!
That is really a shame. Shame on them. So sorry that happened to you. Try not to take it to heart. I know that's difficult. It seems like the world has taken the hater approach with the different TV shows full of meanness and anger. Keep your chin up and don't let the bad guys get you down.
Sad that people behave the way they do, shame on them, whoever you are! Even if I don't agree with someone, it doesn't give me the right to go off on a tantrum. Kristen you are a trooper, this will soon pass! lol
That's so sad! Growth!! That's what it takes. You have be respectful of other and their opinions. It's just cruel and only haters try to be cruel. Hold your head up high. It's not worth it and neither are they.
What was it? Their name? If it was an unusual name we could possibly track them down through Facebook or something? Do you have their email address? You can always find something with somebodies email address.
Failing that, you could post their email address on a huge public forum, with the thread title "abuse this person"; maybe even this forum? Sounds good to me
If I know your email I can send email to anyone else pretending to be you. The only way the recipient would know it wasn't you would be if they looked at the full headers and noticed that the mail came through a U.S. Verizon address.
If we were both in the same area, using the same ISP, only that ISP could tell that it was not actually from you.
In all the time I've been on here (of course, I don't really write much of anything that ought to be all that controversial), I've received a few. Not all of them came from here, though. Every once in a great while, though, some person who is either a jerk or a lunatic (or both) either takes "hate-issue" with some innocuous thing that's written, or else makes up what he thinks the author means or thinks, and sends a hate mail (which is a very different thing from "opposing-view" mail, which I don't mind at all).
I don't think it happens too often for most people. You can either write those e.mail-senders off as the jerks they are; or else, if you're in the mood, you can always post a few quotes somewhere like here, on the forum, and let everyone have a good, public, laugh at them.
The few I've gotten have had absolutely nothing to do with "the usual suspects" - like religion or politics. They were, oddly enough, things I wrote in an attempt to kind of defend one group or another of perfectly decent people or, and kind of try to point out that sometimes not understanding someone else's thinking, or not understanding that people can just be different, can make others think of some people more negatively than those people deserve (and without saying or implying anything bad about anyone on the "other side"). Harmless, right? (Trying to spread a little "human understanding" in the world.) Wrong, apparently. It appears there are people who don't like their hatred of, or superior attitude toward, other people threatened by something like trying to understand a little better. And they REALLY hate someone who tries to calm anyone else's hate.
As my kids' father has often said, "People don't like to to be enlightened."
Sorry to hear that you've received this. Probably someone who is jealous of you, and the only way they can cope is to belittle you. Don't let it get you down or upset. This person is not worth your time, attention or energy.
Some people go through life being nothing other than simple minded and spiteful little cretins, those people seldom see the error of their ways, and as such we should show pity. Personally I think that the occassional encounter with these idiots is a great way of reaffirming belief in ourselves; particularly the way that we conduct ourselves. It is likely that the offender was dragged up, most of us were raised.
oh, I know, it's disturbing. I remember someone posting something in the forums when I was still rather new and I couldn't believe someone was so mean. I had to walk away from the computer and go clean the pool to shake it off. but remember this, it's not about you, it's something within the person that they're not comfortable dealing with when they react with repugnance and hateful remarks.
Kristen there will always been some people who are mean and bitter just ignore them. What negative people say speaks more about them than about you... cheer up girl.. and continue being what you are!!<3 U!!!
Sorry about your hate mail. I recieved my first bit of hate mail over my La-Chon hubs. Apparently they thought I was an abusive dog breeder. I mainly ignored it, but made a note to watch for that person in the future. Has anyone recieved email from an HP stalker?
The first time I ever joined a personals website, I was in the chatroom, and this guy says. Man! That (My username) is one ugly mo-fo. Someone get a net and catch that troll and boot him off the site. Quick before I throw up!
Being the way I am I thought it was pretty funny. But, you should have seen how fast the other users in the room pounced on him. They said, if you don't like anyone here keep it to yourself or leave. And, the insults were flying. I felt like I had started a war.
Then I figured out that people often do that kind of stuff to draw attention to themselves. I clicked on the guys profile, and he was just some ugly kid giving the camera the finger. He was probably just some bored kid, with nothing better to do than hang around chat rooms causing trouble. We eventually had him banned.
Some people just like to be mean. I usually ignore it.
Also, bear in mind, a disgruntled hubber can always log out and then contact you by the contact link, or post a nasty comment on your hub, and not be 'obviously' identified. However, their IP address is visible under the approve/deny area of a comment on YOUR hub, and I expect Hubpages can see the IP address from an internally generated email. If it did come from another hubber, they can act or even ban the hubber, but you will need to report it first so they can check it out. Good luck, and don't take it to heart, I get hateful comments on occasion, but I just delete them and ignore them for the most part. They soon move on to targets who will react to their venom. As for emails, ignore these too, for the same reason, plus you don't want them to have your actual email address if you reply.
That's so uncalled for. If someone does not like a person's views they need to move on, and leave it be. Hate mail accomplishes nothing and makes a person look like they are simply nuts in my book anyway. I'm sorry that happened to you. We are all entitled to our own views and if a person cannot intelligently write a comment, they need not resort to hate.
Hi all,I've been here a month now and have 20 hubs, but when I read some of the forum posts I am worried that my traffic is low. I have had around 680 views total for all of my 20 hubs which averages about 6 per day for...
