Why Are People Allowed to Promote Their Own Hubs in the Forums?

    Notice what it says when you post or reply to a thread?

    It says this...

    "Please note that forum posts that promote your own Hub will be deleted and may result in the closing of your HubPages account. Do not start threads for the sole purpose of promotion or posting links. Please use the Forums in the spirit of community!"

    Does this rule apply to all posters, just a few or is it no longer enforced?

      I think we have to flag them in order to help catch the moderators' attention.

      HubPages does say that the only threads monitored by staff are the "Official" ones - they rely on Hubbers to report stuff in the other forums.  Any time I've reported a spammer posting links, they've been deleted.

    Who knows what the rules are anymore or who they apply to!  I just love the ones like I need a Friend, Friend me, I am new to take a look at my hubs, blah blah blah.

    You are not allowed to do that, I was recently banned for posting my link. I went to FAQ, or Learning Center, to find out that I had done this.

    Actually, when you reply from your home page, it does not say that.
