Come on HP. It is time for you to respond to all the calls for you to address the issues with Hub scores and Hubber scores. These ongoing open sores, are akin to a war against the willing. Authors are complaining that when they edit hubs their hub score plunge. Surely people should not feel afraid to edit their hubs. Why should scores drop when hubs are improved? The complaints about Hubber scores have gone on unanswered for over twelve months now (many, many threads 50+) and the response from HP is 'to ignore it'. SORRY but these things do matter to authors. They ARE important. They DO MATTER especially when they are publically displayed. STOP Tormenting Authors!
The community is surely at the heart of the success of HP - why not take action to fix hub score (on re-edit) and Hubber score (busted for over 12 month and nonsensical). If HP is unwilling to fix the broken and silly hubber score - why not drop it completely or hide it from view (have a secret file). Drop the threshold criteria for live links from 85 to 75 and many authors would be happy to IGNORE IT or have it hidden. Come on.
ITS time for HP to stop tormenting its authors and offer some genuine support for these issues.
Come on HP - come on! FIX the s(c)ores!!! Support the community!
If HP were to drop the ""This slime subdomain only engages in links" to wit: "This is an affiliate link, a paid link, or a link to untrusted content (nofollow)"" message to all the search engines for subdomains with less-than-80, all would be much better on all fronts.
Finally someone said like it is and mirrors many who feel the same way!

I used to have little trouble keeping everything featured but now defeaturing for traffic is happening a lot more. It makes me wonder if the bar has been lifted?
