I got this and about 5 others on my google adsense site diagnostics. I have no idea what a Robots.txt file is and it says that these files are blocked. I am confused at how to fix this because I am not the host --Hubpages is.

Don't worry. A Robots.txt file just helps to tell the Google bots what it should follow and what it shouldn't. I'm no expert here, but it looks like it's telling Google not to worry about following any links to a photo you may have on a sewing machine hub?
Should I change the pictures? It is also in my Bee Gees, Fly a Kite and Washing Dishes hubs.
Don't worry about it. Remember--HP gets 40% of all of our page impressions. They are not going to do anything that hurts our traffic.
They're probably just blocking the Google Gods from following our images, which is not a bad thing. I don't really know the tech side of things, but I know it's not a bad thing. Don't worry. Breathe. Forget about it. Go write another hub.
