Just when you thought the HubPages staff couldn't be any more clueless

    They all but accuse me of running some kind of kiddie porn dungeon, because on my hub about having 'itchy nuts', some worried '14 year olds' have questioned whether the fact they masturbate might be the cause of their itching. In the comments section.

    Go figure.

        The pic (below) has also been classed as being porno

        I can understand that with a very warped mind, within a different context, somebody somewhere could find that sexually arousing.  But please... lol

          I can understand the picture, even in the context of the hub and why they look at it that way.

          The hub is still published, correct? I accessed it through Google Search. So, I am not sure what the problem is, except for the picture.

          I read the comments and each of them are not shocking, considering the contents of the hub. hmm

            Yeah, I can kind of understand the pic.  Though it was intended to be funny, not erotic.

            No, it's been unpublished.

      Children discussing their masturbation habits in your comments section is considered adult content. I'm not sure how this is confusing to you.

      1. Mrvoodoo profile image61
        Mrvoodooposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        Well, a normal person would probably see a difference between a troubled teenager asking for advice concerning health issues, and some kind of sexually deviant literature.

        1. Norah Casey profile image78
          Norah Caseyposted 6 years ago in reply to this

          Your assumption that adult content must be sexually deviant literature is incorrect. Adult content on HubPages is defined as:

          * Sexually explicit writing, including descriptions of sexual acts or practices
          * Nudity (including strategically covered nudity, see-through or sheer clothing, and close-ups of breasts, butts, or crotches)
          * Lewd or provocative images
          * Images containing the URL of sites with adult content
          * Excessive profanity, or profanity in the Hub title
          * Content on sexual aids, toys, or enhancements
          * Fetish content or content with sexual intent
          * Penis or Breast enlargement content or products
          * Links to sites with any of the above

          The first bullet point covers the most common violation.

            So why was it stressed in the warning that the problem was '14 year olds discussing masturbation' that was the problem.  Rather than masturbation full stop?

            1. Norah Casey profile image78
              Norah Caseyposted 6 years ago in reply to this

              Context was deemed necessary in order to avoid confusion. It obviously failed, and for that I apologize.

              If it had been one comment where an adult mentioned masturbation, that would require ads to be disabled and perhaps nothing more. A child describing his masturbation habits and the state of his genitalia is not only adult content, but a violation of our Terms of Use (as this is an 18+ website). The note was added to provide you with *exact* reason why your hub had been moderated.

              (Edited: fixed typo)

                Mrvoodooposted 6 years ago in reply to this

                It certainly did fail.  The hub started out as something humorous, and then under its own steam turned into a forum for people to discuss health issues amongst themselves.  So to seemingly be accused of playing host to kiddy porn literature, came across as extremely offensive.

                And I've never seen it posted anywhere that visitors/commentors have to be 18+? 

                If that is indeed the case, and not yet another rule made up on the spot, perhaps you should think of adding one of these to every page.

            What is sexually explicit about a health issue?

            Your joking right?  If that were true, then why are vaginal itchiness hubs allowed?  Why are breast reduction or even breast cancer hubs allowed?  Who says people don't get their kicks that way?  Why are hubs about bras, thongs, underwear, tight fitting jeans allowed?  By your standards, they are sexually explicit are they not?  Hubs about dead people.  That's a sexual fetish.  Lots of people dream about having hanky-panky with dead people.

            Oh and why are there hubs about rape?  Child molestation? 

            Oh wait- why are there hubs featuring peoples feet allowed?  What if our "misery child" starts wacking off to a picture featuring feet?  It is one of the top five things that people get off with.  FEET! 

            I know let's ban hubs about FEET!!!

            Please.

            See what I mean, FAILURE!

            It's an ugly thing when one has lost control, and is obliviously failing at their dream.

          Marisa Wrightposted 6 years ago in reply to this

          Mrvoodoo, I can't believe you've been here two years and not learned what the definition of adult content is.  People have been caught out by this time and time again, and there have been many forum threads about how stupid and old-fashioned this is, but it's just the way it is. 

          It's not HubPages definition, it's Google's definition and Google is a prude.  Their definition centres around "naughty words", as if they were somebody's maiden aunt.   If it's about sex, it's not allowed, even if it's a scholarly work.

          The only reason your Hub escaped attention for so long is that HubPages didn't put so much effort into moderation before, so a lot of "non-compliant" Hubs escaped attention.  Maybe their filter didn't include the comments before, I don't know.

          1. Mrvoodoo profile image61
            Mrvoodooposted 6 years ago in reply to this

            Thank you for the lecture, Marisa.  But this hub has come under moderation four times already, due to it being borderline, and them not quite being sure about it.  And while it has had the ads pulled on it for some time.  The hub was left published.

            So having already come under such intense scrutiny, on numerous occasions, and having been left published.  Surely, I could only assume that it was within HP's TOS?

            Although, as you say, the problem now seems to be with the comments.  And who knows what the issue of the day will be tomorrow?

            I wonder if a link pertaining an immoral website, via google adsense, goes agains the tos?  And what constitutes to this immorality?  A provokative picture with 'beautiful Indian girls are waiting for you' at match.com, conveniently placed on the top of the page?

            Seems rather hypocritical to me.

        Itchy balls are a big no-no.  Because it's sexual.

          You know RKHENRY had an issue with a hub, similar to all this.  His hub was first selected for the nuggets I think, and even featured on the front face page for like a week.  That's when they use to feature the hottest hubbers on the front page, and the hottest going hubs at the time.  Remember?

          Well they had selected his Penis, Pubic Hair or Art hub.
          Needless to say- the hub had ads on it and everything for two years.  Then sometime last fall, some "new" hubpages staffer pull the ads.  Reason- "adult content" in his title. 

          I know Rolan use to be on here all the time.  He use to write two or three hubs a week.  I never see him anymore, do you?  The hub was completely about art.  It's a shame. 

          Heck I'll probably have hubs disabled tomorrow.  It always happens.  They say that another hubber flagged the hub....  I think the other hubber is another hubpages staffer.

            I guess many things are subjective. Depends who reads them, their perspective. I'm supposing that on sites like this (and from Google's POV in relation to their advertisers) that the 'better safe than sorry' attitude is the safest approach?

            I remember RK Henry well.

            @ Mr Voodoo - the warning wouldn't work I imagine. No way of policing a reader's age. Heck I've bumped into many underage hubbers the last couple of years, and I know it states an age limit of 18 on sign-up.

              This is from a hubpages' favorite hubber.  I often use this hub, as a reminder that favoritism is very much alive and well amongst the staffers, and that quite of few of these staffers are quite hypocritical with there postings and bannings.

              Now granted this is a pregnancy hub.  One of those "health issue" hubs, if you get my drift.  Now how in the heck is this expectable, and Mr. MV's not? 

              Seriously, the doll is featuring bright red tits and public hair!  But.........., as they say it's subjective.

                  Why is it adult now?

                  This hubber, whom I am a fond fan of has had this hub published, with ads, for more than 17 months now. He is one of your original hubbers, with nearly 1500 fans.  Anyhow- Maddie and Paul I know have probably seen this hub for themselves.  They are fans of his.  Even that Simone chic is a fan of this hubber.  So why now, and with such sudden vigor is it now not okay to have featured? 

                  It was fine two minutes ago.  It was fine 17 months ago.  Now it's not?  Yeah, I don't buy it.  So no, I won't do it.   
                  Sorry, but you all can go find it on your own. I'm not into witch-hunts.  Only looking for a little due process and realism from you staffers. 

                  You know- one of you thinks something is okay.  Then the next day another one of you people come, and then it's not okay.  Understand?

                  It is very clear that the Hubpages staff doesn't have a clue what the right hand is doing, anymore than they know what's happening with left hand.  It didn't use to be like that.  And when it wasn't like that- you all had very happy hubbers.

                  Now that it is all apparently subject to the hubpages' staffers individual discretion, no one is really happy here anymore.  Why?  Because it is incredibly unfair, and seriously flawed!  That's why opinions are like a-holes.  And that is exactly what us hubbers are having trouble dealing with these days.  Several hubpages team staffers apparently love the image!  The hub has high remarks, and comments from Hubpages Elite and staff.

                  Not even you staffers are happy with what's going on here.  Anyone who has received an email from the hubpages team lately, can tell what the mood is like in San Fran. Your all's crossway emails, and hasty reactions speak volumes over any thing you can say or type here.  Admit it, the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing.  Admit it.  That's the real problem here.

                    Either that, or the right hand really DOES know what the left hand is doing but secretly hates itself for doing it - hence the defensiveness, patronising behaviour, ad hominem arguments and BS.

                    Speaking of hubbers flagging hubbers as the best means of identifying content that is objectionable, the Nazi's found this method quite useful too...in identifying Jews.

              Exactly.  But if you're going to claim that this is a site for over 18's only.  With a straight face.  Surely some minimal amount of effort or warning should have been made.

              It isn't a site for over 18's at all.  You just have to be over 18 to write here. 

              Anyways, I'm off to bed.  But I'm standing by my 'clueless' statement.  Ridiculous. hmm

                You are right, I apologize for my mistake. Only adults are permitted to have author accounts, comment accounts are excluded from that rule.

        Ahhh no worries Mr Voodoo.

        A way back I had a hub unpublished for similar reasons (as in I think it was adult related) but the fact was it was a Google trip, picked up after (so far as I remember) by HP.

        That was a head scratcher, took ages to get it sorted, no-one knew why and Google wouldn't help. Even now, if I touch that hub, the same damn thing happens - PSA's appear.

      This hub had been flagged by a member of the community and moderated by me. Adult filters only disable ads, they do not take down content.

      1. frogdropping profile image86
        frogdroppingposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        Ahhhhh that explains the filter not 'working' then. And I also thought that the filters could auto-unpublish certain content.

        1. Norah Casey profile image78
          Norah Caseyposted 6 years ago in reply to this

          Yes, certain content is automatically unpublished. Duplicate content, hubs with excessive product capsules, prohibited links, and a few other violations are taken down by our bot.

              As you have experienced first hand, even Google has trouble with content filters. If we make them too sensitive, they flag everything. Too lenient and they don't do enough. Filters are never going to replace readers flagging content.

                frogdroppingposted 6 years ago in reply to this

                Nope. I guess it's horses for courses. Human flagging vs auto-filters - both are equally flawed, just in different ways.

                Any earthquakes ging on over there yet? I have a hub that's getting hammered due to the end of the world (tomorrow) and I read that earthquakes are comming.

    Why?

    I think IntimatEvolution has raised many a point, which should not be buried due to lack of awareness / or chosen ignorance by the fast-depleting pool of seasoned hubbers and the pro elitists.

    I'm really amused at all this talk of topics that are not allowed, hubs that are banned because they offend someone, etc and the every increasing rules on everything.

    Especially since the huge page that encourages people to sign up for hub pages screams out

    "WRITE ABOUT ANYTHING YOU WANT"

    ROFL.

    Why can't HubPages just create some kind of barrier for adult-oriented content like YouTube and countless other websites?

    1. Eric Graudins profile image61

      Because they're far too busy programming much more important things such as accolades and contributor rankings and stuff.

        You're mistaken.  HP is making plenty of money from adult products:

        http://hubpages.com/hub/Why-a-Vibrator- … than-a-Man

        http://hubpages.com/hub/Condoms-For-all-Occasions

        I didn't even delve very far in to find these.  They were both on the hottest hubs list.

        Oh look, there's Ryan Hupfer, previous HP spokesman, and Paul Deeds dad, in the comments, lol

            Luckily I've found some new places to write now.  On top of my own sites.  The similarity between HP, Mao, and the Nazi's was drawn earlier in this thread.  And who wants to be associated with that...

            At least the Rapture didn't get us though.  One positive. big_smile

              Nope, not banned as of yet.  But they did take one of my accolades away.  I guess I no longer contribute insightful comments in the forums anymore. 

              See how they work..... Their actions are spreading through out HubPages, and pretty soon it's going to be the kiss of death for this company.  Why take an accolade from me?  A hubber who has two accounts here, (IEsMedical) over 400 fans between the two, and 120 published hubs.  I'm the perfect hubber for them.  I make a little money for them, I'm careful to produce quality material and I am a strong supporter of my fellow hubbers and community.  My traffic hasn't really dropped, and I've never really had to rely on HubPages traffic to get me by.  My traffic comes directly from Google, Bing, and Yahoo.  Ideal.  Until that is- I started to allow my fingers to do some talking.  Ironic.

              Instead of responding in such a negative manner, a good business mind would have chosen a more wiser and business savoy path.  Such as sending me a thank you letter for making them away aware of some internal staffing problems, which they seriously need to fix!

              However......  they did not.wink

                Perhaps you can find a replacement, or, grow another one? smile

                  But it is not good business sense to keep "ticking off" decent, veteran hubbers.  All of us are the real back bone of this site. 

                  And, quite frankly we all know what happens to humans when their spine breaks.  A company is just like a human.  It needs to be nurtured and fed. Not reprimanded for caring.
