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.

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 so tired of having people post that they are unhappy and have decided to leave HP as a result. In some cases, I see their point, but in most, what I see is a bunch of individuals who have not taken the time to keep up with the new rules and then have problems as a result.It is your...

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...

I would like to make a formal request to Hubpages staff for an option to switch off our profile score. Lets start off the new year afresh without the need for anyone ever having to waste their time discussing this subject ever again.

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...

I have been thinking about leaving for a while, but I know that in those times I have had something else going on that depresses me a bit. It started when I lost my brother and I began to, somewhat, lose that oomph I had for writing and publishing here.What about you?
