    Would you be offended if someone in good faith draws your attention to a mistake you have?

    We're only human, we make mistakes and in hubbing, it is unavoidable (and you're allowed) to make some mistakes, be it a minor typo error or spelling error. I, personally would be thankful to that person. There's always room for correction and progress. What's your take?

    I would not be offended.. I try to take all tips, avice and critiques with an open mind and realize that I cannot improve or fix the issue if no one tells me something is wrong. Always be thankful to the people who help you grow, learn and improve.It isn't always easy to not feel defensive, but take a breath and realize more often than not, they were only trying to help, even if you feel like they were being harsh.

    I would be thankful and grateful if someone were to bring a mistake to my attention, so long as it was done constructively, professionally and courteously.  We all seek to improve our craft and we should all support one another in this manner.

    No, if it is done in a kind and genuinely helpful way, I appreciate it. I really would like my articles to be in good shape with no glaring or embarrassing errors.

    I wouldn't be offended if I am politely told. And remember that you had once alerted me of a word error on my hub. I was glad that you spotted the mistake there and admired you with "eagle's eyes".  Thanks, my friend!

    No, I would not be offended at all if someone pointed out a mistake in my hub, as long as they were doing it for my benefit. I think that people usually do point out such things to help others....I know that that would be the only reason I would do that...to be of help to a fellow hubber!
