I feel a mug. I did give up writing there a while ago. However I was supportive for a long time. I really thought they were young and inexperienced and needed a chance. Then I saw the writing on the wall. Bubblews has closed down with little warning and no time, if you didn't save them, to retrieve your posts. I had started retrieving mine a while ago. One way you may salvage some is to use Way back Machine. If you can find a post it will click through to it. Yet again money for our writing went into someone else's pocket. Sigh.

I never understood why people still had faith that it would get better.

There is a reason. Some did.get paid. That means you assume they will sort.it for others or there is a reason they didn't. Crooks will hook you in with.a half truth. Initial

@Jackalyn there is a reason they didn't. Because they knew that they were not going to continue with the site and they didn't care about the members.

Today is the first I heard about Bubblews closing down for good. I hadn't logged on for a while, but today I was going to. I'm not shocked that the site is closing down, but rather shocked at nothing more than a message saying it is closing down. Or maybe they gave members a warning I never got to see before closing down?

When people warn you, you have to listen. In 2012 when Bub was reported, when Scamadvisor had it's big flat, when all you had to do was enter Bubblews+scam into a search window...how could anyone be surprised by more than that it lasted so long? As many Scammers have said, (on their way to prison) "I wanted to get out earlier"

I am not sure they had any money to waste. They didn't execute this very well. But they all have nice business losses to write off on their taxes.

I'm glad I always backed up all my posts otherwise my hard work would've gone to waste. I hope this means that Bubblews will delete all of our posts so that we can repost them elsewhere.

I knew that this was going to happen, it's the reason why I stopped writing there 3 months ago, I did not want to allow them to make more money using me.
