Choppy Poems and Choppy Writings

I have noticed something that is going on a lot lately on bubblews and it is this. More and more people, especially foreigners, when they write their articles and poems, write in such choppy broken English that anytime I click on one to read, I barely understand what I am reading. What gets me ticked the most is that these posts receive lots of likes and comments (saying how great the poem or article is), when my new account gets barely any likes and views and I try real hard to write in clear plain English!

So, now I am starting to think of something. Maybe, if I write a real abstract, far out poem, that really makes not much sense, do you think more and more will view and like my broken and choppy way with English? It is a thought that has really crossed my mind in the past week!

I actually don't believe you'll get more view by doing that - you probably don't belong to the right club!

I think there is some sort of 'like' groups there. I only posted one bubble, and my post was hit within seconds with about 20 likes and comments, all of the comments said something to the effect of follow me, I liked your post, follow and like mine. When I checked out their posts they were all written exactly like you described, some worse and they had hundreds of likes. It sort of turned me off, that and that the whole front page of bubbles was written like that. I deleted my bubble and have never been back.

LeaPea2417 I don't know about that. I think the reason they are getting tons of likes and comments are they are in a liking pool or something like that. They must be working together. I have suspected that certain groups from certain countries there are doing this a lot. When I read posts by Americans, Canadiens, Europeans, etc, I do not see tons of likes and comments. I do see good well written posts. So I believe certain countries are building these so called farms and taking full advantage of Bubblews. That could even happen here.

Everybody's 2 cents, so far, seem quite valuable. I wouldn't sweat keeping folks happy over there.

Those are generally poems written in Vietnamese and run through a translator, which is why they are gibberish and also plagiarized at the same time. They are part of an exchange group which is how they get likes and views. But they did lead me to explore Vietnamese poetry and some of it is fantastic.

Yes, they are part of some kind of exchange group, kind of like a click in high school. I suspected that, but still had to ask all of you.

I left bubblews because of people stealing author's articles. Some got caught People kept complaining and kept complaining about not getting paid. I deleted my articled and my account. Been fine ever since.

Just remember that most of those likes and comments most likely come from like farms and what not

What can I add to that? They live in a choppy cheaty world so they cheat and chop. It is sad to see people that desperate, actually.
