    Can we do anything about the big problem? I mean really, ethics preclude my posting any new hubs on this account; you know why.

      If you mean the referral, there is nothing HubPages can do, though you can always transfer your Hubs to another account and/or only write new Hubs on a different account.

        You do know I love you. Please kill the author-referral aspect.  Stop throwing that money away.

    And the obvious agenda.

      If you want another thread about this maybe you should start one rather than hijacking threads (trying to be) about other subjects. Or maybe just open a new account with no referral credited to it.

        I've missed you. lol

        How the heck are you?

    And it does not matter.

    It is still valid.

    Those of us who haven't read every post on every forum, have no idea what the referral references are on about.  I'm guessing you can't use your referral link to link to another of your own hubs?

    If you called a new account paradigmsearches (or paradigmraisesmiddlefinger) we'd all be able to find you. Of course that doesn't help with your search engine traffic though, does it? Would be a lot of hassle to have to relocate all your hubs to a different account, but it is understandable that you want to protest.

    It would seem appropriate to have a penalty in place for anyone who betrays a hubber in the way you were. If there wasn't a penalty then, I hope there is one now.

      It is indeed untenable that this kind of person makes money from my work. It truly does destroy all the joy. If only HP would see the light as to the obsoleteness of the author referral program and get rid of it.

      I'll continue to remind them every once in awhile as to the unnecessary money they are throwing away every day. big_smile

      Meanwhile, back on topic. It is indeed an awesome list. smile

        And this concludes my rant for January. See you in February, probably this very thread. Or not. Who knows?

    Shall I start a new thread? You and me.

      My point was that I kind of want to avoid discussing your issue and wish to  take part in unrelated threads, thanks.

        You are wrong here. I thought friend. I am sorry.

          I don't think we are friends or not friends--I am just making a suggestion re: threadjacking which is generally considered less than polite.

            Dead bang right. I did not plan it.

            We really not friends?

            We have so much to play. big_smile

      I know there are still a lot of hard feelings among online writers after Squidoo folded, but I think that particular post offers some good insights into the motivations of bloggers and writers. Of course, that's just my personal opinion-- take it (and the article) with a grain of salt. smile

        So how is the young person living? Any thought as to the other?

    I read through a bunch of those articles on the list, Christy. Some made perfectly good sense and were helpful, but others left me thinking I come from a different planet. I have bookmarked a couple.

    Thanks for providing food for thought. smile
