    Wow the toys are being thrown out the prams and the arms ripped of teddies.
    The big fish are splashing around in the shrinking pond, blaming us poor bottom feeder for everything that has went wrong with hubpages.
    And the stench of hypocracy hangs in the air.

    I haven,t even looked in religion or politics yet.

    Personal attacks, abuse, spamming, self promoting, unneccesary flagging and underhand behaviour.

    Sorry guys.

    I just can't help myself.

      As you should Bill!
      It's every man for himself now. Personally I am making a fortune!

      So far I have copied all your articles and built a small empire from them!

      I also flagged all your hubs, spammed your comments, hijacked your Facebook wall, and had you banned in the forums.

      God made me do it, so I have been forgiven even before I started.

        In that case you should change your name - earnest does not reflect your bad personality big_smile. Where do you keep your fortune? Is it under your bed or in your closet? Or inside an old cracked tea-pot?  In case I decide to rob you... Don't tell me you keep it old-fashioned way - in your bank accout. Anybody can hack that!

          I have all my money offshore in a tax haven, where even I can't get at it without a long ride in a canoe then a mountain trek. smile

          My new name is Snidely Whipsnade or as that has been used how about Smurdly Mergasmut? That sounds better!

                But a £1,000 dollar keyword, so you really should have kept it secret Earnest! Off to write 200 Smurdly hubs, ethically spin them 5000 times and create 270,000 spammy backlinks!

          I beg to differ!  I'm totally chicken at times.  Like when American Idol is on and my wife really wants to watch, but I want to go watch ESPN.  I'm usually a chicken then.

      All your fault. And to think we were relying on you.

        I'm sure I can make this up to you.  How about a new way of making advertising revenue on HP?  Would that make you feel better?  I'd do that for you if you'd let me.

      I read that the new algo is designed to stop global warming,patch up the ozone layer and keep dolphins out of our tuna. It sure doesn't seem to have much to do with better search results!

        how can you possibly say the results are not better!
        anyone wanting info about the decline of the roman empire will relish the chance to buy pizza, not only cheap but free delivery too!

          rmrposted 7 years agoin reply to this

          I stand corrected. I haven't been able to find cheap pizza since the change. I guess I've been using the wrong search terms! It's always operator error, isn't it?

    I don't know what all the fuss is about. My hubs have touched traffic levels like that havent see in months. I filed 142 DMCA forms so the money pretty much is pooring in. As for global warming when I reach my first million sometime later this year, I'll have all the sunshine I need . So why the fuss people jeezzzz can't you do anything right. Start reading the forums more I found it to be helpful. smile cherio

    I am off then to write a sales hub for toys and prams, cans of spam, and books on How to Beat The System.

    And For that Troll who Flagged My Hub in an effort to have it ripped down off the front page of Google.... Get A Life! sad

    What a Joke!!

    A hub with a 94 hub score = written 20 months ago and one with 60 positive comments on it... #1 on the Key words... And taken down in retaliation For being Outspoken!

    What a Joke! smile

    Are Trolls Used here by 'Staff Writers' or Just Accepted as being a Fun Way of Screwing Real People? hmm

    Answer That Question... Realistically!
