It is a sin to start so many "Is it a sin...?" forum posts, especially where they degenerate into bickering.
Cease and desist, or you'll be struck by lightning (ie rapid shut-down of all those threads).
Awwwwww... I was going to start a thread titled "Is it a sin to sin?"
Only to a sinner, if ya don't believe, ya don't sin. I find it a convenient way to think. I can be a complete prick without fear or remorse.
Yes! It will raise enough dust of personal attacks and indirect hatred. Mark is never a problem, but you really have to understand the way go with the mindset of an atheist as a Christian or otherwise. Above all, "love" rules!
Genuflecting has been disturbed by virulent laughter... sorry.
I was actually rather enjoying the concept and I don't typically enjoy the forums.
I haven't read enough of them to see these personal attacks you speak of, but the titles next to each other in the forums made me giggle and repetition with a slight change is a fair comedic device.
I was about to actually post in on Mark's. Yes, it's a sin not to worship Mark Knowles. He's fun.
I like Mark Knowles, he is a no-bulldust, in ya face, honest and very funny man in my opinion.
where is fierycj and is he o.k. that thread yesterday was totally out a hand I agree...
the one that has been closed.... Fierycj, that encounter between the two of you was upsetting..... people do not want that kinda hatred on here, you two should sort it out as you are both great hubbers. One religious and one not.... from where I was standing you did not do us any good you do need to apologise..... so does Mark but that is only my opinion. Take the scarf off it does not suit you... I bought a purple scarf last week for 4 euros, it is a beautiful scarf,I wear it round my neck...... If you are the nice guy I know you are, why act like an idiot...
you just lowered yourself to other peoples level that is all, this site is for mature people, are you mature????
Why are you picking me out on this. What about Mark? Didn't he start the whole thing. Gawd, see what I've been talking about. I wont change the pic either. I was only going to have it on for a couple of days at first, but I'm not taking it out now. No way, that would make me the worst sucker of all. And this whole Mark Knowles worship makes me wanna puke. I would soon leave the entire place entirely. You know, let you guys enjoy your sucking up to him.
It's not worship or sucking Fierycj, it's respect and may I add the same respect I have for your views. Just drop it my friend as it would be a shame to see you leave, you are deep down a good guy so just chill and enjoy the site.
Take care ok !
that's good advice, badcompany. I appreciate it. I know I'm a good guy. I'm just misunderstood. That's all.
I know that which is why I posted that for you, so please just move on ok. Trust me I know what I am talking about lol, it's just not worth the trouble mate and you deff have a good heart so do listen and enjoy yourself. I have been there, learnt from it and I moved on and feel better for it, I know you can as well because I see the good guy in you, enjoy yer day !
You're a true wiseman, badcompany. I just gained a new respect for you.
Good man, take care and I have faith in you !
Thanks. I'll listen to my gal, Bren and change the avatar. She's really pissed at me, and she's the last person I want to be pissed at me. She's been a great friend.
She has and as you see from Cindys comment you have loads of other people on here who support and care about you. You are a good guy and Brens not pissed at you, she's just worried about you. Personally I found your Avatar amusing but that's just me, now just enjoy yerself my friend or you will walk the plank lol
keep it on then, does not make any difference to me.....
I said you were both wrong, he is older and should know better, but to anyone reading it I must say it was upsetting, You just dont go near him, dont attack him, I have told you before keep your head down and write, you are so good at writing...... I should just mind my own business, I am always being told that so why dont I listen...
Frankly, if a hubber decides to have an avatar with a potty on their head, it is their choice and their business. Personally, I did not find Fierycj's scarf offensive or something to ridicule. When I looked through the comments on that thread, he'd arrived and sounded quite chipper. He was immediately attacked personally and ridiculed for wearing that scarf. Some people might have found that kind of ridicule and banter funny and gone along with it. Fierycj did not enjoy being ridiculed and reacted. The whole scarf thing should have stopped there, but the digs at him got uglier and more personal, so he reacted. As a bystander, it was unnecessary and uncalled for. Who cares if the scarf he is wearing is fake or the eye-patch Mark is wearing is fake. Get over yourselves. He is not a troll, but a young man who does not enjoy being teased. Older, more mature people should know better than to continue goading someone like that. I think there are people who owe him an apology.
You're probably the smartest woman on HP. At last, someone with some sense! Thanks Cindy.
Jeez, shows you how I studied his avatar lol, always thought it was an eye-patch!
You want to know something, so did for the first few weeks of him having that avatar. I had to take a closer look, because it had been driving me crazy. When the image is slightly larger you just manage to notice that it's the sunglasses reflecting, and not a patch slapped over his left eye.
I spotted your talent first, that is all, Mark upset me so much when I first came on here, because I am religious, and he attacked religious people..... It was my problem, I had to grow up .... we all do, I am not angry with you, just want you to stay as a fellow hubber, and benefit from hub pages, and one day make a film, my forever friend xxxx
Fiery - I am genuinely sorry I upset you to the point where you lost it. I did not expect that strong a reaction. I do actually like you - you have brains are are fun, but I will probably make fun of you again - I only do that to people I like.
As for the fake scarf and the Africans - I live in the South of France and all the towns along the French and Italian coastline are teeming with Africans selling fake designer rubbish.
They have been conned into believing they are going to the "promised land" to make a lot of money, and when they get here, they discover they are now indentured servants - and the only way to pay their passage off is to do this. The whole thing is mafia-run, and in Italy - the restaurant owners dare not stop these guys from entering their restaurant and approaching the customers because they know their kitchen will "accidentally" catch fire that same night.
The Poor Chinese immigrants that have been suckered the same way are forced to sell roses and umbrellas the same way.
Nice story. Could make for a good movie script. I'll look into it. I accept your apology. I'm nice like that. Any more goading from you - I'll strangle you with scarf, Luis V or what not! Lol.
That's the spirit, Fiery. I love your passion, but channel it into your creativity.
At the end of the day, it is the problem with talking on the internet - misunderstandings are all too easy. I am sure that if you and Mark were sat drinking a beer, you would have a long and interesting conversation.
Mark become my fan and make it up to a 100 please, I need something to go right today
you are no mystery to me, I have you sussed
dont worry about it, I wont tell anyone how to gain your approval, if you dont tell anyone how to gain mine, now start a thread to congratulate me on a 100 fans.... go get it man
well i will say thankyou, but you start it off, I started your thread yesterday for scoring 100..... Think how many more fans I might get if the mighty Mark brings me to everyone's attention... go on i am not manipulating we are just being buddies.. x kinda scratching each others back, you know.....
well what about it, I have approved your mail or should I say male, speak later, there is a religious person knocking on my door...... my daughter ha ha I have a 101 now
I would like to ask if it is a sin to accept the censoring of creative material and/or content?
Actually.... I'm not that sure it means anything I was just trying to get to 300 posts
Thanks for asking Brenda!!
i wont try to answer it then.... was it you that mentioned a possibility of putting a book together, if so is it on....
I have only been writing on hubpages for about 9 or 10 days now, and I just want to get a little something off of my chest.
Mark Knowles is, for me, the hubber that I respect the most. The only reason that I am on here, and I bet a few of you are the same, is the prospect of eventually earning a bit from adsense. In terms of inspiration, guidance and pure awe...... Mark Knowles is the one that I have been watching most closely. He also seems to be a helpful man. My aspiration, although easier said than done, is to reach a similar level as him on here.
On the other hand, everybody that I have encountered so far on here has been welcoming, helpful and friendly. I get a really good vibe and community feel. That is with the exception of one individual, fierycj or whatever his name is, who I have found to be incredibly offensive.
I have one message for you 'fiery', if you don't like it here at hubpages, and you have already claimed that as a prince with your own business and car you dont need 'American money', then why are you on an American site publishing hubs? In a nutshell, if you dont like it here and you don't need the money, then why not p*ss off somewhere else and post your inane drivel.

There's been a lot of discussion of forum rules and policies recently, as well as criticism of the HubPages staff, so Paul and I agreed that a thread reiterating our position was in order.The rules are very clear:No personal attacks in the forums. Substantive debate and differences of opinion...

What do you do when people lash out at each other on your Hub? (in comments)Sometimes people have different opinions and argue in the comments section. They reply each other and it gets tense. Do you just watch the drama unfold, intervene, or delete the comments and wish you never published the Hub?

I stumbled across this hub on my news feed several days ago, and tried to step up and offer support and encouragement for a brand new hubber whose beliefs differ from my own but who is being grossly mistreated by fellow hubbers. How on earth is this behavior tolerated and allowed to...

just because they don’t agree with you? Pcunix took one of my hubs commented on it then proceeded to write his own hub on it and posted a forum on it just because he did not agree with me? Then throughout the forum post he started to put me down personally. Has this happened to...

Just published my 199th hub, folks. I did nothing special at 100 hubs. In fact, I have no idea what my 100th hub even was...In any case, I feel like I ought to mark my bicentennial, since this time I actually noticed approaching the big round number. And since I'd never have made...

I had an argument with someone on hubpages recently (no surprise there!). It got pretty heated, so I deleted the comments capsule on my hub. This prompted the other person to write a hub solely about me and my hub. They've been careful not to mention me by name, but it would be very easy for his...
