Is having one link in your Hub too many links?
Reading another Hub might be required...
This Hub was originally a written piece of civil disobedience. You see, I might have perused a hub from a talented hubber who was frustrated with, well, Hubpages, and I might have agreed with him/her. Why do I use the word might you may ask? Might I be a coward? True, one may contend that I only touched on some of the issues that he/she/it brought up, and the issues that I mentioned were trivial at best.
My answer to such a rude question is how could I be a coward? You are assuming that I read a hub from this Insane Character (which I do not admit to), and that in this crazy fantasyland of yours, I was afraid to take a stand on a number of pertinent topics. My retort would be, you are obviously insane and should call your doctor as soon as possible; however, if one should take the time to read this hub, one’s sanity would be restored.
In this busy and complex world it is nice to get some feedback from our writing peers; however, how many comments do we get at HubPages, or on any other website, that are really helpful? This hub will teach you how to write the perfect comment every time.
Before I begin, I must state that I, unequivocally, have never heard of the Hubber Insane Mundane. Furthermore, I have never read any of his, or possibly her, hubs. In addition, I did not take a direct quote out of his hub in order to create this hub. I will provide a link to his hub, at the end of this hub, so that you can read the article and see for yourself that I have never laid eyes on his article (after all if I quoted his article, certain people might think that I agree with him, which I do not).
This article was great!-This comment works for all Hubs and or articles, and writing it takes little or no time. After all, the writer does not want to know what you actually liked about his/her article, so you spare them the eyestrain of reading a much longer, and helpful, comment.
Thanks for sharing!-This is a great comment to write because it is like getting a participation ribbon in grade school (well you tried, Timmy). You shared your poem, life story, part of your soul, or an article that took hours to write and you get is, "Thanks for sharing!"
Voted up and interesting!-No writer wants to know what about his or her article is interesting, and what does the word interesting, in this context, actually mean? For example, looking at someone's face that has a severe case of acne can be interesting (such was the case when I was a teenager).
Nice Hub!-Nice is such a, well, nice word, and nice is a nice word to use as a comment (though nice might be considered an overused word). Why is the word nice a nice way to leave a nice comment? Because when you use the word nice, you leave a nice mystery to the author of the nice article. He/she gets to discover what you meant by using the word nice...nice!
Thanks for sharing this wealth of information! -I am not going to start sermonizing about generalities again (nice); however, this comment should only be used when a writer does share a wealth of information. If a person writes such helpful hints like breathing is conducive to staying alive, or most automobiles run on gasoline, he/she are not really sharing a wealth of helpful information.
Awesome Hub!-This answer is easy to write, has a sense of mystery, and is like a time machine contained in a statement because it takes you back to the 80’s.
This article was great! Thanks for sharing! Voted up and interesting! Nice Hub! - This is the ultimate comment one can write about another person’s writing. It means that perfection has been reached and that one should never read again. If that person were to read again after gazing upon perfect prose, he or she would be tempted to poke their eyes out with rusty nails. In addition, this comment will be one of the mysteries of the ages, just like Stonehenge, because people will always wonder what you meant by this comment.
In conclusion, if one merely writes, verbatim, any of the comments in this article, you will never have to write a meaningful comment again. As an aside, I wanted to answer a few questions that may have come up while reading this article. Yes, I have written plenty of inane comments during my time at Hubpages. Yes, it can be very difficult to write a meaningful comment on another writer’s piece of work. Yes, I am being truthful, depending on your definition of truth, when I say that I have never read insane mundane’s article The 'Big Bad Bang' Moderation Theory of HubPages. How is that possible one may ask, well it involves the fourth dimension, Black Matter, and my extreme allergic reactions to gauntlets, censorship, and flags.
