    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 smile 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. smile
    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.

      Lame!!! I like that. I've used the running to mommy analogy as well smile instead of hit and run; it's hit and hit the report button.  And yes, it does seem to affect scores. Thanks for responding.

      On my previous ban my hubscore dropped and I lost about 3 accolades I earned. Its the most cowardly thing I have ever seen in my life.

      Come back once you're sprung. Jesusjail can be relaxing and recharging. smile
      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...

      Sorry bro.  Romans 8:28   And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

      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.

      Yes, its obviously selective targeting. Common knowledge really. I am not sure I will even survive them at all.

      Yeah, I quit because it seemed slanted. Erased my acct. Back because I was "bored" smile 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.

      Sounds about right. I figured it was not just one report each time but also "protectors" who want to keep the fuzzy wuzzy shades of gray for political reasons of course. smile

      There is a clique roaming about the forums.  Never doubt that they have an agenda to have believers banned.  Deception is the work of the devil.

      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???

      Hello Genaea, I am so sorry to hear about this.  I don't read all your posts, but the ones I have read, I have not seen anything ban worthy.   Take care, and we will see you soon. smile  Sorry you got banned.

      Probably for laughing at Jomine.   It is hard to tell though.  I guess it depends on how many times you were reported.

      Funny how that happens... I STILL won't do "reporting" I can handle each and every one of his very own put-downs toward me and many more.
      Thank you too.
