I try to read a lot of hubs, as I'm sure most of you do. Deciding whether to give a thumbs up or thumbs down is usually a no brainer. What's much harder is deciding which of these words to click: useful, funny, awesome, or beautiful. Sometimes none of these words express my thoughts after reading a hub.
Here are some of the words I wish were there: poignant, inspirational, moving, disturbing (or heavy), and profound (instead of awesome?) These are some of the reactions I've had to some very-well written hubs that I would not label as any of the given choices. Such hubs include those on abusive situations, bereavement, and other topics that leave us disturbed (that such things happen) or moved (because our emotions are affected) or, perhaps, inspired (because of the way the hubber handled a problem or situation.) As writers, we constantly are in search of precise words. That's why I often just give a thumbs up and skip the other choices if they don't fit. I reveal the true response in the comments.
Any feedback on this?
I would like to see a general good listed in the chioces I have read loads of hubs that I would have labelled good but not beautiful or awesome and sometimes the hubs just aren't meant to be useful or funny.
Definately agree more choices would improve people voting on hubs

Or is it a dumb question? I have not had a single thums up in the past 2 weeks, usually I have quite a few, or is it no longer an indicator?

If this is not the correct place on HubPages for this question/discussion/comment, I apologize. I did a bit of research and did not find that it had been previously addressed. Recently I got an email notifying me of a new HubPages question, and I decided to write and post an answer to...

Do you give other hubs a "thumbs down" vote?I've never voted a "thumbs down" on any hub, regardless of errors or the tone and nature of an article. If a hub is filled with errors or it is politically charged and I disagree, I may respond, but I do not vote it down. Am I shirking...
