True that people personally attack to receive a banable response???
It seems as if I have been banned for responding (without malice) to "personally attacking" comments that are way worse in my opinion than my own comments. I do not "report" even the silliest or most disrespectful comments. I just respond I feel that the disrespect is in no way directed at me; but my biblical flow. I am not offended. But so many rude commenters (and I do mean rude!!!) get offended by some of their own type of speech. Is it simply a game to feel as if you have won the argument if you can verbally punch someone and report them when the verbal punch reverbs???
It's the same as it is in the real world, some folks can dish it out but can't take it themselves. I personally try really hard to watch what I say because I know there are people who run right to the moderators to report anything.
My own score dropped 5 points the day after I asked atheists a question. Maybe it was a coincidence.... but it's happened before. Ah, well. Maybe we should complain too, but I think that's kind of lame--sort of like running to mommy over nothing.
As someone who is an atheist and has spoken in support of others like me, I've experienced the same thing here with drops in Hub Scores and Hubber Scores. This is why I don't participate in those types of questions anymore.
George & Cgenaea, totally concur.Some people have not matured emotionally,they're emotionally immature.They INSULT but cry when it's returned in kind.Forums should be a place of intelligent, intense debate;ADULTS are few & far between in the
Come back once you're sprung. Jesusjail can be relaxing and recharging. I quit during my 2nd or 3rd. It seemed so unfair that the people here spit fire but super sensitive when the hardest thrown darts bounce back. They report. Embarrassment...
It seems that the "posse" that really runs Hubpages Forums have decided to retroactively increase my ban to 7 days instead of 24 hours like it said at first. I would appeal to the Owners of Hubpages, but it doesnt appear they are in charge.
Well that sucks... I was looking forward to tonight. I wonder if they ever view the surrounding comments and ban more than one for one incident, report or no. Because they ban the defensive/RECEIVER of "junk" often.
Yeah, I quit because it seemed slanted. Erased my acct. Back because I was "bored" I realize that this battle was won years ago. Just doing as directed. He is more than the world against... just stand. ♥
Reports are sent and if enough are received, they have to ban the one reported even if that person did nothing to get banned for simply because management doesn't have time to check out all the facts. They have a business to run.
I think there might be at least 2 cliques. One "site" clique that brown noses the site and upholds their own clique and the clique that selectively targets Christians by abusing the report system en masse or by concerted effort.
Yes. Somebody is mad again. I really don't know the how or why. My phone screen never gives me the offensive link; nor did I get to read how long my break is this time. If you can pinpoint my reason for being banned please do. Just HOW sensitive is our feisty crew???
In which cases would you flag/report someone to Hubpages, or even ask that they be banned?For example, if someone slandered your name, would you flag them? Here is a comment taken from a religious Q&A comment on...
How important is it to have a comment section on your hubs, or How important is it to respond?I was going through some of the hubs that belong to some of the top paid hubbers ( info found on the success story page) and...
Ok. Yesterday, I received a very derogatory comment on one of my hubs. The reader pinpointed one comment, an alternative, that I mentioned, and disregarded the entire article. I did approve the comment, and made my own,...
