Moments in a troubled community

Bold Statement & Quote's

"This is a global community and not a game to be played with, many of us need to come to terms with such a truth." (All quotes are 100% original by Mike Pugh aka CloudExplorer)

This online community of virtual travelers is interdependent today, and its one that expects us to walk on water at times and even on thin air. Sometimes to pretend and act as if nothing is wrong, but no it isn't right at all to behave in such a manner.

This troublesome watered down place of a machinist world, isn't just something to use as a scheme to throw around others emotions whichever way we see fit, and by using indirect tactics to play them like puppets, to toss around personal conflicts onto the screen as if mood swings are OK to share virtually with millions of potential viewers.

All this explained from up above is wrong, for a community equates to sharing fairly, sharing equally, and in keeping with the good spirit of such a global online community.

"Some users mistaken these machines for true human nature, but they're not, its us humans behind these god forsaken machines as drivers of a differing amplitude, frequency, and wavelength emission".

"We are all animals with hearts, with eyes, with ears, with a pulse"

Cool imagery helps creative writers to diverge into differing meanings, below is a argumentative free form of writing


"We are not machines" People!

The truth to the matter is, if someone has a problem with a person in this digital world for whatever reason, then they surely need to take it up with them promptly, directly & discretely, rather then act as if they're a perfect human being hiding behind some machine.

Powerful Quotes (below)

"As the planetary system will continue to rotate no matter what, it is common knowledge to properly address each circumstance, moral or ethical dispute and situation as it approaches."

"There's no such thing as perfection, which has been over stressed for sure by most human beings, and definitely seen when all things fall apart due to their life cycle."

Writing as a creative voice feels sort of like these skaters, so free!

Beautiful denial

I believe its super cool to become mega popular!, but in today's world filled with a vast assortment of personalities, online super centers, jokers that run online campaigns of the silliest kind and win the viral battle, its just not worth it to give in to frustrations, angers, or lose integrity.

There's so many other things people have to deal with in life, and no one wants to be labeled into some sort of category, people don't like to be told that they are inadequate even if they really are. Facing defeat is certain for many, but those who are set to survive shall never be in a state of denial.

Being stuck to these computer chairs is tough for writers


Incorrect decisiveness

When writers decide to place into their words terminology of a subliminally degrading format, downgrading, or deceptive in its all around nature, and share it publicly with all of their global followers, and to that of other fellow writers. Well, from that point on the stage has been set to mislead them into further deceptive pathways, and into sure inevitable cyber doom.

"The funny thing is such a person will face the wrath of their own summoning, and as they say your reap what you sew."

The truth is, none of this is good sportsman like conduct in my honest opinion, I believe it is in fact competitive behavior (hence the factor of denial being set in and it has quickly embedded itself out loud!). It must be a more decisive technique and approach to undermine the integrity of those who are in fact in competition with you which isn't fair, but is how people play dirty and in the nicest of ways. There is good competition, and then there's the slimy kind, and to see through it all is tremendously important to win at any game of virtuosity.

"Being in denial today is a heartless unfortunate disease, which has no cure, unless the persons ego dissolves, this and only this shall set you free."

Fighting with self is perfect!

To defeat me is to win at everything, because I am my worst enemy, I have learned in life the truth about being deceptive, about being a lair, about being in denial, and about so many other great truths. That all derives from being a person who cares not for the like of others, and I grew up in a place where people literally hated each other, and themselves so I know what falseness truly is.

I also know what it is to have nothing, others may pretend to do such a thing, but it isn't right to pretend and to put up a fraud, we all know that, its just a shame that such things are being done to try and delude the crowds of people today.

"To beat my worst enemy, who actually is myself, is to truly win any and all battles in the unforeseeable future."

Things to intake and no matter whom we are

When we write today, we all must realize that this is a platform that the entire worlds stage may get a chance to sense, and it really doesn't matter how many comments, or page views we receive, what matters here online is that we get noticed period, and you and many of us here who try to remain humble about things all know that oh so well.

Rambling on and on about your very own personal perspective, in self promotional ways & on things you truly haven't researched, will only get you where you thought you've reached in your own mind, which is "A direct pathway to no man's land", and not very far in reality on the Internet as a whole, because the world of online searchers are basically looking for relevance to universal needs, a glossary of informative navigable details, to be entertained visually & auditory, to be supplied universal ideals, looking for answers to important questions, and not for a singular persons perspective online as to be the only guiding light source to it all.

"You all have been fore warned this time, and won't anymore again!"

"It's like getting trapped in that intake, which isn't wise at all, maybe try to work on the engine while its on the ground."

It takes strategy to compete today, this video is truly powerful!

Tough Competition is real believe it or not!

Now when things tend to lean far more towards favoritism, people doing things in the hiding for ill intent, and playing games to act as if they're the all knowing source of everything, of all information and in their differing formats of such, and convincing themselves that their the worlds super power of word mastery.

Well, than you might just expect to see some major competitors come out the wood works, because for a great deal of us online writers it is just that. A clear cut competition! that's not always fair and square, or maybe its just a writing contest. Truly it is whatever you choose to think of it as being. Since numbers battle numbers, and all we can do is think of them as we see fit, Hah!

      Yes purpose is very crucial for us writers today, and the web is a place for people to locate a vast assortment of things. I prefer to write for the crowds of people informatively to help them in some way or another, and I guess that's my purpose for being an online writer today.

      Thanks @watergeek for your insight here, writing and hitting that publish button is a serious thing today for sure, and we all are held fully accountable for what we place in action onto the screen for sure.

      I agree, in that when I write on Hubpages I am writing specific things for a purpose - not to air myself out, but to share changes I would like to see in the world that I hope others will adopt (or at least consider). One of those is that we co-create this world with everything we do and say. If we speak harshly online, that harshness spreads with everyone who reads our stuff . . . and we don't know who will read it from where. Although that's not what I write about, I know the attitude pervades my articles. (My topic is water conservation and sustainability.) Thanks for pointing out how important it is to be aware of the impression we're creating online, CloudExplorer.

      @ImKarn23, yes indeed writing from pure creativity takes passion of a differing inner voice, and not for the sake of popularity. I must agree with you Imkarn23.

      I learned to be humble in life from many of the harsh experiences I been through, which were no laughing matter to say the least, and so this is where the true depth's of my visions for writing stems from, and also from wisdom gained over many years of struggle and hardships.

      Thanks for commenting and it was so nice of you to give my hub here such a good review, your comments are always welcoming too because you're a real person to others and towards yourself when you leave them.

      it really pisses me off me to see how cruel people can be while sitting anonymously behind their computer screen!

      Cyber bullying is out of control and one of the deadliest ways to reach out and hurt or even KILL somebody - if not physically - then certainly emotionally...

      i cannot seem to allow 'popularity' to rule my pen - i must write for myself first and foremost - and being stuck in a 'niche' would smother and bore hell out of me.

      I have actually lost followers because of my political articles - when you write about politics - it automatically means that half the reading population won't agree with

      i choose to sacrifice popularity for a greater good - is that selfish of me? lol

      so i stay true to self and try to mind my own business as to not incur to much

      Great writing, as always Mike! Have a beautiful day!

      @xstatic, perhaps you may have read a bit to deep into this creative verse, but it is up to the reader to decide the overall meaning of any written works right!

      So it is what it is as for hubpages, it pertains to anything we choose to deliver here onto the screen, and none of us are all knowing or all seeing as to differing events that due indeed occur here and there.

      I guess its up to the type of subjects we choose and select to read & from certain authors here at times, and those we choose to follow for sure, because when you think about it there's so many authors that exist on hubpages, and no one knows everyone, you know X.

      Thanks bro for the cool comment though for sure, I'm glad you dug my hub here either way, cool beans for sharing too.

      @Gypsy Rose Lee, thank you so much Gypsy for your insight here, it is difficult at times to get along with folks, and its much wiser to keep a positive outlook on things today for sure, competitiveness on a positive note is good, but unsportsmanlike like conduct is not and hurts any community for sure. Your words are so true as well, and thanks for sharing as well.

      @Vellur, thank you for the kind feedback, yes indeed we are in it together no matter whom we are, what position we play, and what have you. Nice comment I can't agree more.

      @Faith Reaper, that is understood by me for sure, and once again thanks for providing such useful feedback, we all need to learn how to properly relate to one another and with much more respectable content for sure.

      While I agree with your article, outside of the manacing hubworld of religion and politics, I have personally seen very little of the problem that you are writing about. Perhaps I lead a sheltered hublife though.

      This is well done and thought provoking.

      Voted up. I agree support and understanding go a long long way but harmful competitiveness and rudeness fall by the wayside. We must all band together in harmony and help and support each other that way we will get much farther much quicker.

      Very true, wise words. We have to actively participate in the online community without hurting other's feelings, helping out each other and most importantly to write to spread knowledge, truth and wisdom. Great hub, voted up.

      You're welcome Mike. In my previous comment, I was not speaking of the profound and beautiful love poetry written here, which can be sensual, as that is part of poetry, but I was referring to one disrespecting his or her own in a public display of one's own sex act and with pictures to boot, all in an effort to make another feel whatever, but what results is the writer of such harming him or her own self. Yes, good, positive competition is healthy and should take place especially here to encourage all of us to strive to become better writers.

      @Faith Reaper,

      Thanks you so much for sharing this hub, I like to think of it as one for the community, and to hopefully help those struggling hubbers who don't understand what good positive competition is, or how to properly communicate without making others feel inadequate, or somewhat beneath them or what have you.

      We all in this thing together for sure, even though these are machines that we're using.

      @billybuc, thanks bro our community is far to precious to allow such horrid activities to unleash itself, and so I will do what I must to help keep it as clean as a whistle, and you know how vigilant I can be for all of the right reasons, just as you are Bill.

      I don't back down for nothing neither, I just hope all those folks who choose to do the right things, decide to turn stuff around and do right by others, and also for their own well being on this awesome writers network.

      Thanks again bro for the insight, your is always well taken by the likes of me, and yes indeed our friendship no joke!

      I agree with Faith, but then I always agree with Faith. LOL Listen buddy, I am a firm believer that what goes around comes around. Those who want to speak ill of another, or let competition ruin gentle comradeship....well, their time will come, and it's lonely out in cyberspace when you have been dropped on your butt by a collective community.

      I love your words, love the truth, and remain your faithful friend....

      Thanks @old albion, Its tough to write creatively at times, and definitely when so much is going on in our daily lives, but I did my very best to release a tad bit of truth in creative ways, and I'm so glad you enjoyed reading it.

      Yes Faith, the truth shall always set us all free, being in digital bondage is one thing, but being in perpetual personal bondage is another.

      We all deserve to be heard! no matter the cause, no matter the reason, if we write let all of our voices be heard, and especially if we are powerful with them, as well as responsible as we abide by all the rules and regulations that are pushed fourth to follow.


      & thanks for showing up, for sharing with little ole me, and yes 1 voice can make a huge difference fore sure, but we all should play fair!

      BRAVO!!! Mike you are a man of such integrity and you speak volumes of truth here. God bless you dear one. May all take heed in these words stated here. I am not signed up yet to "make money" as I am testing the waters (plus I do not know about the SEO), but I have seen fierce competition here and it just really turns people off, and then those who try to harm others because they may not view things as they view things. For me I have a message to tell that God has given me, and I know there are some who disagree with my message of His love, and that is okay. You have obviously had something on your mind here, and I am glad you have expressed it so wisely dear one. Then those who are out to publish pure trashy, sex-related garbage (personal-wise . . . this is not the Jerry Springer show to display all of your mating habits for the whole world), and as a writer, one would think before doing so, so as to not tarnish one's reputation as a writer and to not just try to provoke someone else. You have caught His eye here this morning dear one.

      Voted Way Up to the Heavens

      In His Love Always, Faith Reaper
