Okay, I guess this may have been covered before, but I wanted to put my 'take' on the subject. I am totally saddened by having a number of hubs either having 'Ads Disabed' or being 'Unpublished' for what seem to be minor reasons. My latest 'victim' was a chapter of my IVF diary, and this hub has previously been published for a huge amount of time without the Ads ever being 'pulled'. I have now unpublished this, along with the other chapters in the series, and intend to publish them again on Excerptz.com when they are de-indexed by Google on Hubpages (Excerptz do not allow any duplicate content, plus they give you 80% of Adsense revenue 100% of the time). I also had another 'funny' hub about mistranslated funny signs have its ads disabled because of 'sexual' jokes. This too is now going to be moved to Excerptz.com. This seems so wrong to me, and a real case of 'political correctness' gone mad.
Not much more than a matter of a week ago I hit my '300' hubs published accolade here on Hubpages. Ironically I now have under 300 hubs published because of these bizarre rules that either unpublish or stop adverts on hubs (including hubs I have now unpublished by choice because I know it is only a matter of time before the Ads are disabled by Hubapges, e.g the rest if my IVF series). I wonder if this means when I publish a few more hubs I will get the 300 hubs accolade a second time round!
Well, at least you are aware of alternatives.
I enjoy reading your stuff and hope you will keep the "politically correct" ones here.
Trouble is Rochelle, it will take many months before these hubs get high in the Google rankings again on a new site with a new webpage address. A real shame, but there you go! I shall keep a good chunk of my hubs here, but if any more are unpublished or Ads disabled I am inclined to simply unpublish them for a week or so (so they get de-indexed by Google) and then simply move them over to other sites such as Excerptz.
I am flattered you enjoy my hubs and of course I shall keep writing here. I just intend to diversify and ensure my work not only earns for me, but remains published. If it were offensive or pornographic material I would understand the censorship, but it isn't, so I am forced to take sensible action to protect my already 'small' income from my writing.
Thanks so much for the compliment

I have just received an email notification that one of my "micro-poems" has been unpublished as it was found to contain "adult" content. Now this hub, "Micro-poem (No.8) Five Times a Day"...

I know that our own views are counted on the stats page but I have not opened this hub to edit it today and yet I can see that I have had four visits!

Is there a way to exclude hubbers who do not have idled hubs from the 24 hour review for new articles? This may be the wrong place to enter this request, and maybe it is an impossibility. It would be nice if staff could...
