Why do people come here to be insulting?
I have PTSD from my mother, yet everytime I mention this in one way or another I get called mean or or told I am lying. I am not lying and whats mean is giving your child PTSD. Has anyone else expereinced this?
I am thinking of deleting some hubs becuase of this
Don't get down on yourself. Set your hub comments so that you have to approve them then deny mean comments.
Internet commenters are notoriously mean. For the most part I'd say that hubpages is a fairly nice community in a relative sense. I've seen some really messed up youtube comments. Anyway, along the lines of what Cobrafan said, just remember there will always be someone who finds it funny to come on to the internet under an anonymous name and say things they wouldn't normally say. Don't take it seriously, and remember that there is a much larger supportive community out there.
You have to learn to have a thick skin on the internet. It's unfortunate that people are immature and act this way but they aren't going to stop.
Don't unpublish your hubs just because of some rude people on the internet. There are likely people who appreciate those hubs and enjoy them. Focus on pleasing those people, those who actually want to read your work.
Just delete the comments of those who are rude or hurtful. Don't delete the comments just because they disagree with you.
It's hard to answer this question because I have no idea what you mean when you say your mom gave you PTSD. I know PTSD stands for Post tramatic stress disorder... but how did she give it to you? I don't know why some people are insulting. Some people are cruel. There are those who only think of themselves. Don't delete your hubs over a few idiots. Keep writing what you feel like writing. It may actually help someone else. Good Luck.
I've been fairly fortunate with my hubs. The comments have been fairly positive. The only time I've had issues was with the religious forums, where I end up getting shot at from both sides. But I now chose to stay away from those forums, because they really are a waste of time.
But don't let a small percentage of negative people bring you down. Be true to yourself, and I hope you don't cave into the pressure and delete those hubs. Personally I find your personal experience to be inspiring and I feel your candor in discussing difficult & personal subject to be really courageous. I'm sure there are many that benefit from your hubs. So don't let the bastards grind you down.
i haven't read your hubs because i'm not one who cares about mental illness but i do know that some people take others opinions when they differ as being mean. i don't know if this is the case in your hubs but maybe it's more then that. i have to ask though, how did your mother give you PTSD?
There are several classes of insulting hubbers.
The first is "I am right and you are wrong and do not argue with me about it."
The second is, "Do you have any idea what you are talking about."
The third is, "I see your point but you are incorrect in your assumption that the world is actually round (or some other ridiculous comment to change the subject).
Discussion of the 2nd Amendment, religion, and politics will bring out the really mean people--unless you happen to agree with them, Then you will get the not so mean people who will say that you just do not understand what you are talking about."

Why do so many hubbers delete comments just because they disagree?I see this a lot particularly on hubs espousing things like Noahs flood, or the inerrancy of the bible. I don't delete opposing comments when I write about evolution - why cant these people deal with contradicting opinions. Is it...

I apologize, but it seems a "Best" answer was chosen on my question when I did not choose it. I hope the HP Team can help me or someone can inform me why that happened! I noticed it via my phone and I knew that I did not choose an answer and I was not going to do so any time...

So I've deleted all of the idled hubs so far and am wondering when I will have none left. I'm not going to edit anymore until I see some sort of improvement in traffic. Too much trouble for no results at all. With all of the scrapers and with HP's brilliant program I'll soon have...

I know that it is against HP rules for someone to place a link in a comment of a hub, but is it okay for someone to place a link in a comment when answering a question, even if it directs people back to their hub? Also, it seems to be okay to place links in the forums' comments, as the link...
