Yep, some of us aren't immune to being banned like others, WA. Now we can't use animated smilies or any emoticon with a live link. This is one reason the forums look so boring. It appears HP doesn't want folks having fun on the forums when they could be writing more hubs.
Seriously, we used to have some great--as well as fun-- discussions before the latest hall monitors were appointed. It's best to go to other forums if you want to have some fun unless you're a greeter.
Randy, haven't you ever met a naughty hall monitor before? That was me. In Jamaica we call it the class monitor and I had a teacher called me the class clown. Can you imagine a monitor being a class clown?
I think we need some drunk posters and some alter-egos who argue with themselves.. They've often been the ones to liven things up. Coffee-drinking posters aren't fun. They're (we're) just all hyped on up on coffee and looking for serious issues and traffic matters to discuss.

Religious postsThey are drowning this site. The whole my god is better than your god thing has worn me out. The same bigots claiming to be true christians whilst making ignorant remarks about other religions.Then...
Just a broad question really, has the internet become boring? It feels like the internet used to be dominated by discussion (anonymous) and humour, and the outright weird. Now it feels like the internet serves primarily...
When I first joined Hub, I looked forward to good debates, discussion, learning about other Hubbers, and even the occasional arguments. You can learn a lot from what people write, and what pushes their...
As the title says I have been thinking about hubpages and how it has gotten very boring. A lot of people have stopped coming to the forums and everything is now boring. It's mostly the religious trying to argue about...
