Hello to all hubbers I am new here , this is my first post. I am a little confused , I tried to add a comment on someone`s hub and the end i inserted a link to some other website , after I submitted the comment I realized that the link was only shown partially. Why would this happen? Can it be because of the structure of the URL? It contains a question mark at the end. I have seen this before.. Please help !
You didn't have a trailing slash in the URL after the .net but before the ? and parameters. I'm not sure whether what you had is a valid URL or not, but at any rate our regular expression didn't match it correctly (but it would if you had the trailing slash).
With that out of the way -- I would not suggest making a habit of dropping affiliate links into comments. Once in a while it may be appropriate, but if too many of your comments are denied or flagged as spam you're going to start losing privileges here at HubPages.
I'm fairly new too, but I assume this feature is in place for preventing spam (or self promotion) from ruining an important feature for writers on this site.
I think it has something to do with your hubscore. You should ask Paul - he will tell you. Low scoring hubpage members are stopped from doing certain thing. Once you get your hubscore above a certain level, the problem goes away. But that means being an active member of the community.
Thank you all for the replies , I`m not trying to spam at all , was just wondering why would this happen, I have seen it before on other blogs, it sure has something to do with the structure of the link ..Very nice site indeed I enjoy reading all the hubs!

My hub that seems most popular with over 52,000 reads is at the bottom of my hubs with a 69 and it has been 70's so I sharpened it up some just to have it fall. How can this be? I hate to delete it but I think that is...

Dear HubTeam:I know there have been a few forum threads about this topic, but hear me out please. By the way, this thread refers to the rating down of hubs, not flagging. I have no problem with the flagging feature and...

If a visitor to any given hub makes a comment I believe that's a good thing. But what if that visitor leaves a link, usually embedded into their name, to another website or another hub. Thsi has happened a lot and...
