You some folks threatening to leave hubs? Good to know - but when dudes?
yo yo yo ... give me a joint!
when the venture capitalists close this shop I guess.. until then if they show the VC's this shop is viable w/ a few more years and a few less cash infusions to keep it going then I guess i'll stay around for awhile
Sometimes people get worked up. Sometimes it's just because they misunderstood something and got themselves hopping mad over nothing at all.
Keep this in mind: you don't get angry about a place you don't care about. If Facebook ever reaches the point where I can't take it any more, you won't find me ranting about it. I stopped using LinkedIn some time back - if you search hard enough you can find me complaining a little bit before I left, but basically I just stopped out of total disinterest.
Some of the folks kicking and screaming may have ulterior motives, but most might just be people who really like HP and the people who are part of it. They are upset about something, maybe legitimately, maybe not, but if they truly did not care, they'd just fade away.
Their ranting and raving has benefit to HP even when it is totally misplaced. Their misunderstanding can help HP staff do a better job with FAQs and feature announcement posts in the future. If nobody ever complained, there is no feedback to goad improvement.
So, yeah: tempest in the teapot, annoying, don't let the screen door hit your butt and all that. But there is value also.
There is certainly value in complaining or asking questions on specific points. Being uncivil, or spamming the forums with the same points or questions over and over again is unhelpful and just plain rude, however.

Hi! I joined hubpages about two weeks ago, and I've already created about 15 hubs. I'd love for you to check them out if you could. They're mostly me ranting about things that bother me, but I think they're good! Please follow me if you like any of them, and rate/comment on them if you can! I'd...

This is off topic but needs to be said so I'll say it then drop it.I admit I have lost my cool several times in here but NOT unprovoked (that’s not an excuse).I have a habit of protecting the underdog from those who prey with words to show dominance.. as is the case with a few people in here...

Let me preface this by stating I am not trying to be mean or a troll. In fact, I avoid the forums because I don't want to get involved. But with so many posts about the topics I'm about to discuss, I wanted to put in my two cents and to offer a reality check to old and new hubbers...

I am experiencing an overall average off 66 percent less page views per day, for seven days versus a week previous and for the past two months. Such a huge drop in page views makes me think that Google has tuned up something again. I do know that I don't have the time and energy to keep...

Recently, there was a thread of someone complaining about Hub of the Days lacking amazing writing skills. Their complaint stated the Hubs being selected were because they were niche driven and 'how too's' instead of stellar writing from the soul. The day he posted that, it was my hub that was...

Since I migrated here from Squidoo two months ago, I've seen a steady stream of threads in this forum, complaining about lost page views. There are a lot of theories about why it's happening, and how much it's happening, and what can be done to get into Google's good graces.Google is not my #1...
