A Hub Violation with a Difference

    Time after time people complain that their hubs have been withdrawn due to violations which they don't understand or accept.

    Just to redress the balance...

    Today I was editing hubs and came across a piece of crap I wrote about Debt Consolidation.  It had a warning on it, and I tried to make it a bit better - but my heart wasn't in it.

    It was garbage, written purely to get some advertising revenue.

    The moderators decided it was unfit and sent me a unpublished message.

    I have deleted it.  No ifs, buts or maybes - it was rubbish, spammy and has no place among decent articles.

    Glad to see the back of it to be honest.

      That's a model response, Mark. You gotta know when to fold 'em.

    What a refreshing voice, Mark. The sign of a good writer is knowing when to edit and when to scrape a piece of work. I've read your work and it really is high quality stuff.

      Thanks.  Maybe they'll encourage me to get of those couple of MLM ones I did as well.

      Ten months ago it seemed that all you needed to do was pick up some keywords and sling a bit of content around them.  And that, is just what I did.

      It's difficult just deleting something though - so it's a helping hand, or shove, that's needed.

      I'm about 60-70% happy with most of my content now - but there is still work to do.  And of course we all learn as we write more.

    I have had several hubs flagged on here.  All of them were justified.
