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.
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.

A one percenter from Seattle named Nick Hanauer published a piece in Politico Friday warning his "fellow zillionaires" that a revolution à la France 1789 is coming to the United States if America's wealthiest don't take drastic steps to reduce inequality. Read more:...

Greetings hubbers, I guess I got spooked today watching a program on PBS Nova concerning hackers and their reach and power. I always thought that I was reasonably well educated and aware of the basics. I see things now like the ability to hack into the machinery like the operation of...

I just received a pleasant surprise while checking my stats, which I admit I do more often than I should. But one of my best performing hubs got 10 times the amount of traffic it usually receives, from 200-300 to over 3300. This has happened before but I figure it was a share that begot more...

at least things are improving dramatically now compared to six mo ths ago.The main thing which has changed over the past six months is my attitude to promotion.I'm writing the same number of hubs per week (1 or 2) but I'm also posting articles to a couple of article sites and posting video to a...

Can anyone here make rhyme or reason out of the HP scoring system?For example, I have a high-traffic hub with a low score, and then other thoroughly researched articles, with graphs and everything else, but which do not necessarily have high traffic, but which may share a similar score (as the high...

For a good number of weeks my hubber score has hovered around the 100 mark. Two days ago it started falling, and as I write this, it is down to 89! If this keeps up, it will be 0 in a week! No rhyme or reason to it, but it leaves me wondering why this is happening. I know...
