    I have had this article published since 8-6-11 I think its an error so I need staff to check it out to be sure.  Here is the message I received.

      First, delete the link(s) from your op.

      Second, delete the links from your hub(s).

      Third, run like hell.

    The whole reason you have the warning is because the HubPages link checker DID find a problem.

    Just take the questionable link off your Hub.  That will fix it.

    tamron, I’ve had the warning on a dozen or so hubs in the last few months.  In one case, the only links I had on the hub were definitely to large, trusted sites, like an arthritis dot org site.  I discovered it late at night, and I was tired, and decided to deal with it the next day.  By then, the warning was gone.  This happened on a much smaller vegetarian site too.

    I think sometimes people with malicious intent target certain sites to do mischief.  Hopefully the site webmaster catches it early and takes care of it.  Bottom line, I usually wait 24 hours before I take action.  After all, what if I sometimes went 24 hours without checking my own account?  In almost every case, the warning disappeared and I did not have to delete the link.

    Just in case your link really is malicious however, you should disable it in your original post on the thread.

      The other possibility is a bug.  There were a couple of announcements about a bug in the violation alerts a while ago, maybe it's happening again?

    I just tweak my article and put a different link from a different site and the red scall is still there. I will delete the link in the thread too if I can.

      Have you tried running the violations test again?

    Make sure you are addressing the specific link they don't like, it will be listed when you edit the hub.
