And I'm promoting what? Everyones post has an opinion. I wrote this in a laughing manner.
Your hub...it is against the rules of the forum to start threads to promote your hub.
Harvey, I'm not saying this was your purpose in the Post, but the simple fact that the link leads to your own Hub makes it LOOK like you're hoping a few of us (at least) will click on it and drive your view count up.
So that would be "what you're promoting".
I personally wouldn't do this because I'd feel it would cause me to lose face with my peers and colleagues on HP, besides which (just in case you don't know this yet), our greatest benefits come from Hub views originating from outside traffic (Google, Yahoo, etc.).
As your number of Fans continues to rise--meaning that whenever you publish a new Hub those folks will be notified--you'll automatically see more Comments on your Hubs along with a somewhat elevated internal view count.
Ghost, I'm replying to you because your response was the most compassionate. I am a novice at doing this but I have done it before in a different manner. I only put the title of my article on the forum, no link. The individuals that have complained evidently had no idea this was a title to an article. I have gotten over 300 replys, but I must say thank you.
Not a bad article BUT you could have waited a few days to get a response whether people like it or not as quite a few people would have commented on your article if they have liked it and would have praised you there.

I just watched two episodes of Race for the White House on CNN. The first one was about Dukakis and Bush and the second one was about Bush and Clinton. I learned that we will vote for whoever has the best campaign staff that can create risk and doubt for the other side. Let's look...
