I know we have all suffered over the last few months. The pointless moaning, bickering and playground insults have been tedious... and I can only apologise for posting so many of them.
Anyway, I have found the cause. A writer who I shall not name - but they will know who they are - wrote a two thousand word quality hub with pictures, video and a quiz. At first glance this looks brilliant. But look a little closer and what did I find?
They had used an incorrect conjugation of a verb!!!!
I have privately messaged them a death threat.
Get the lynch mob ready. The rest of us will meet you on main street with the pitchforks.
People are incredible! Everyone knows you have killed for much less before.
The worst is what we are going to do to the poor guy with the dangling participle.
Excellent! The only thing is I don't know anything about good grammar. I had to look up conjugating verbs to see how to make a comment using it.
You proper writers better take over now. I'm off to try and draw a pitchfork.
Using such words as conjugating verbs may trigger the forum police, surely it has sexual innuendo and as such is banned?
Yes, we must purge this site of the sin of word witch craft. I suggest the Iron Virgin - nobody does her twice.
Ya know... You should find out who Gary Larsons's manager is/was and send him some of your work.
Thanks very much. It's slowly coming together - shoddy cartoon, snappy punchline - plus the nerve to do it. I have a lot to be grateful to HP for, and HPers of course.
I like the idea of being considered a Hper rather than a Hubber as it sounds more dynamic.
I don;t have a flaming torch, but I do have a pitchfork. Will that do?
I read that as ride me to death and glory.
Then I read it again. It made more sense the second time, but it was much more interesting the first.

Finally, and at last! You may remember that at the end of August I took an overnight 90% hit for articles that were doing really well prior to that day. At the time I had 147 hubs. As of today, I have...

Hi, I have taken the plunge and written my first hub. I would appreciate any advice.

I've been writing hubs for almost 5 years now, and I've seen some ups and downs. At one point my traffic went to zero. I became so discouraged that I didn't sign in for six months, but I left my hubs here. When I...

So much for new subdomains not being caught There was a panda update on June 8th that would make it almost the 9th my time and so from the 9th my analytics shows a huge dip in traffic and it fell even further the next...

I'm stoked because I just realized I passed the payout minimimum - I've almost been here a year and have learned so much (with much more to go). Thanks Hubpages for all the education, and being an outlet for my...
