I am totally dissapointed - How does a GREAT idea get washed up like that after 3 years!! Shame on them for squandering the funds before they were made, shame on them for using the writers, shame on them for all the FALSE PROMISES. The Bubble might have bust but the dog will get his day. I am sorry to all my special friends I have made - I hope they finds their way here, and if we ever get deceived like that again, to my special connections find me on FACEBOOK . WHAT a CATASTROPHE this is!!!! #$#$#$@#@ is what I would like to say!!

Why would we ever have imagined that they might treat their members with enough respect to actually give them a warning and a chance to tidy things up before they stopped? All those 'paying as quickly as we can' emails were what I suspected all along - just stalling lies. I have no idea why so many people trusted these people and whilst I don't need the money, I really do resent how much of my time they wasted.

they could have exited more decently, but still blew their last chance.

@hereandthere every time they have a chance to redeem themselves, they blow it. I just noticed that Arvind's profile on Linked In has switched off connections. Presumably he doesn't want too many people telling him what a low down bottom dweller he is.

I gave them the benefit of the doubt, but you guys were right. I'm thinking of 3 years worth of content that I should have backed up. Why can't they be courteous about the content issue?

It wasn't about the money it was always about the disdain with which they treated us. The last time they took our money it was to start that Sweeble thing and they lied to us about that too. The Bubblews staff, Arvind, Tyler and the bunch are the most unethical people I ever met. But there is such a thing as karma and I will be sure to do my bit to ensure the world knows who they are so they don't scam anyone else

i didn't like how we were supposed to always feel grateful and keep overlooking and forgetting the mistakes and mistreatment

I believe in that Karma - it will boomerang on them - what is the #Sweeble thing everyone is talking about ?

Hi Lany :) I was shocked to see that the message this morning. And I guess they are keeping all the revenue they have accumulated that hasn't been paid out yet. Shameful!

The bubble had to burst, I felt the end coming when Nameless deleted all her posts. I was so demotivated that I did not even deleted mine.

well we cannot retrieve any - so if any are still on a word document saved, then they can be used again.

When I made the decision, at the end of September, not to write there any more I also made the decision not to sully my browsing history with their URL again. No doubt they will pop up somewhere in the future. We must be vigilant!

@Inlemay Absolutely! They sold so many people down the river. While some of us can chalk this up to experience and move on, there are some people in the far east who have been well and truly &*%$ed!!

At least this place popped up again so people have a place to congregate. So glad I didn't waste anymore time there trying to get my last $14 up to $50.

At least the fact that it's finally gone has got me started here! I signed up a couple of weeks ago, but couldn't be bothered to write. It was a shock, though.

You are one of the most injured members that I know of. I don't think they ever paid you did they?
