If I create a list of links in a Hub, I get a warning about having a lot of links in one place.
I can't see any valid reason for that warning, and it's causing confusion for Squidoo members, who are deleting lists of useful links when they don't have to.
A list of links is very useful at the end of a Hub, to provide Further Reading lists or references, so I'm not sure why HubPages discourages it?
List of links can be helpful, like you point out. We discourage them because in actual practice they tend to be spammy and not real helpful to readers on average. We try and shape our warnings to help the largest group of people be successful. There are always exceptions to these general guidelines and people have to make their best judgement.
Why do links in a Table of Contents get the warning that there are too many links in the same place? Those are links to content modules on the same Hub?
