Why was Kimberlyslyrics banned from the forums? Feedback anyone.......

    I understand that our girl, one of our favorite hubbers was banned yesterday. She was not told why she was banned. Today is her birthday and she cannot post on the forums because of this ban.

    Does anyone knows why she was banned?

      Often, it is the amount of reports that will get one banned. The content of their posts is irrelevant to the "flags" that go up when a certain amount of reports are placed in the system. The moderators don't bother reading the posts, they just automatically ban the person being reported.

        Well said. I think it's obvious, that, given a fair, objective review, that there is only one logical conclusion, and that is that this ban is totally unwarranted and should be withdrawn immediately...

          Whatever is going on, I can't believe it would be for longer than 3 days. She is probably using the extra time to write more hubs. smile

            @ A Troubled Man, I hope that's not the case. She did say 7 days before she can post again. 7 days sound serious.

                I don't know about it being a doozy, I got 4 months for upsetting one of the slimy religiously impaired who attacked me first.
                I don't recall my reply being worthy of a ban.

                I don't know how it works, but suggest it doesn't work very well.

              Yet, she'll go back through her post history and be baffled as to why she was banned.

        I hope you are wrong, because that would mean any group can pick any person and have them banned for no reason.

          Yes, I contacted someone at Hubpages and that's what they told me, so yes, a group can easily have you banned, no matter what you've said.

    Thread like this are prohibited. And, what in the world would make you think that the Hubpages Staff is answerable to you or anyone else on why they ban someone else, who isn't YOU?

      recommend1posted 5 years ago in reply to this

      I don't think she was asking HP staff, or you.  She was asking anyone involved in the relevant threads why Kimberley might have been banned.   And I don't think this type of thread is prohibited ??????


      To answer the question -

      The threads where I saw Kimberley last she appeared to be behaving within limits - although she does have a tendency to fire up and get banned, so maybe another thread I did not notice ?

      @ Cagsil, Recommend1 is right. I was not asking staff. Just looking for answers. It is obvious that she did say something to me why I am asking.

      I wont reply in kind to your tone Cags.......
      Do you remember when you were banned, I started a thread about it until you returned?

      @Recommend1, thanks for the clarification. You were right!

    It's important to speak up. We all have a voice and many venues to exercise it. This is totally unfair for Kimberly. She neither deserves it, nor complains. She exemplifies class... We all know that....

    1. Cardisa profile image89
      Cardisaposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      Yes BBNIX. We need to know what's going on so we can do something about it. It could prevent is from making the same mistake.

      It could very well be a mistake that she was banned.

      the e looks like thats the problem.  TOS violation?????  But what about the Hubber that created it for her it's clear in another thread

      1. IzzyM profile image86
        IzzyMposted 5 years ago in reply to this

        Its not the 'e'. Its the image that broke TOS (wish I'd seen it now!)

        And correct me if I'm wrong, but the length of forum ban is related to how many times you have been banned in the past, not for the severity of the current violation.

    5. paradigmsearch profile image88
      paradigmsearchposted 5 years ago

      The text in the thread that references the snipped image does seem to indicate that the tackiness tripwire was activated. To get seven days, it must have been a really good one. Unless IzzyM is correct. smile

      At the risk of putting someone else at risk of being banned...
      could someone who knows explain what the green "E" and blue "H" mean?

        Different monitors might show different colors, especially when it comes to green and blue.

        So, I'll just say:

        E =  Elite

        H = Hub Staff

        MM, nice E you got there... smile

      The TOS violation image was two people who were nude working out on fitness equipment.

      So, since it was a TOS violation she was banned.

      The larger question is if you know the TOS rules, why bend them to the banning point at all?

      1. paradigmsearch profile image88
        paradigmsearchposted 5 years ago in reply to this

        Actually, I didn't know that nudity was a TOS violation either. I mean if the nude pose/position does the same job as a bathing suit, I would have thought it would have been ok.

      Happy birthday Kimberly. You can do a seven day bid standing on your head - oh but don't wear a dress or you'll get banned for indecent exposure. Your elite image was great! I wish that I took a screenshot of it when it was still posted. Nude workouts sound like fun but can I wear my jockstrap. I'd hate to give myself a hernia laughing my a$$ off. I think I'll go write a jockstrap Hub and poem right now. LOL
