    Well , im thinking that if you think their serious hub is funny , then i'd hate to see you read one of the funny ones ... just sayin' however , if you read a serious hub and think its funny , without critisizing anyone harshly , just move onto the next hub , nobody likes painful criticism , and i dont think the old saying "if you cant say nothin nice dont say nothin at all , would be something that should  be practiced , unless they asked for it ..... smile

    Some have dry humor and others have a more serious side, do not take offense to the rating overlook it and just keep writing, There is always someone out there who may try to burst your bubble and others who will look at your work in a more unique way.

    EX: In this area where you ask these types of questions, there are those who appreciate the response and others who rating them negative without really paying attention to what the response was. When that happens to me, I do not take offense I just keep responding to questions that are asked. .

    well, it could have been an accident. Or the person might just be a d***head. That's my guess.

    This happens some. Occasionally you may have one line or situation in a Hub that could be interpreted as funny. And then someone may see something they conceive as humorous that you may not. Of course it's also a way of attempting to mock a writer but in the end they only let other potential viewers of your site think you possess that special funny bone at times. Win-win my friend.
