I don't get it, It's an aged hub with 98 comments on it, "People Users, Abusers, Manipulators & Sociopaths"?
So I see a Red Skull on it and click the link at the bottom to show what's the problem. It comes back:
"Please address the moderator set alert below before submitting this Hub for publication.

////// There are ZERO links highlighted for me to correct! What am I supposed to do? Remove all of them at once? I have no clue since non are highlighted. Isn't the offending links supposed to be highlighted?
Thanks. Confused and frustrated.
Edit the hub and see if there's a dropdown message at the top which identifies the link. Otherwise, check all your links and ask yourself if each one is really necessary.
You could also paste all the links here and we'll tell you which ones aren't allowed.
There was nodrop down orI wouldn't be asking this question.
I did go through every link and there were two that went 404, So the notice should've been 404 but it wasn't an actual 404 it was the domain was up for sale.
I'm pretty sure there isn't a separate warning for broken links, prohibited links encompasses all kinds of links that don't work. So get rid of those 404's and see what happens.
Marisa's right, there's a separate warning for broken links. I believe http://hubpages.com/relationships/addictivepersonality is the appropriate hub? If so, it must be one of the photo links as I don't see any other links on the hub. I'd just double check each link, update any that might be problematic and see what happens.
A link to the hub would help so we can 'wayback' it. perhaps the link is in an image source link?
