So I've been thinking a bit off topic here. What if, let's say, a person were to create an amazing hub. It gets a lot of attention, everyone loves it, and there are a ton of comments. All of a sudden, the publisher edits the entire Hub to be completely pointless and awful, but all of the glorifying comments remain. How do you suppose the community and random onlookers would feel about this?
The hub would be flagged as substandard, then unpublished by moderators.
That was how I understood your question as well. You are welcome!
I understand the question is hypothetical. But why would anyone even want to do this?
I can see maybe changing it to have the opposite point of view as the original, though. For instance you have a great hub about what a scam something is, then after getting great feedback, change it to an advertisement of the scam.
I was thinking more for kicks and giggles. What you proposed would be ingenious though. Hmmmmmm.....Maybe this has happened before.....
If the Hub were to become pointless and awful, most likely it would be moderated, as Website Examiner pointed out.
However the changes and results would probably go entirely unnoticed by those who had visited and commented in the past. And it's possible that most new visitors would never see the past comments, as comments tend to reside at the bottom of a Hub and with really bad ones, people don't read down that far.

I was hub hopping and had to flag a few hubs for being substandard (word count). One hub had exactly 10 words and 2 photos. There should be a way the system prevents you from publishing a hub like that except if it's in...

Wouldn't it be nice if some explanation about the hub came with the above mentioned notices. All you get is the general notice that you hub is overly promotional or substandard and it needs to be fixed. If...
