Having flagged a number of hubs over the last couple of months mainly due to inappropriate numbers of outbound links to the same source I have recently gone back and checked on some of those hubs- and they are still published!
Is hubpages ignoring flags on hubs now?
It's not much encouragement for us to take time to flag hubs for various reasons
I noticed the same thing awhile ago. some shocking hubs weren't removed despite flagging. No wonder the google slap came in.
Surely HP should be learning lessons and culling those hubs?
But have the hubs been revised?
A violation isn't an automatic reason for unpublishing a hub if the violation is corrected.
Nope they haven't been revised
I flagged two hubs which had at least 4 outbound links to the same website and they've still remained published John
@2uesday-The irony is that these are not hubs published within 24 hours of a hubber joining the site but actually from an established hubber that has double figure numbers of hubs.
If they cannot cope with the quantity then it might be worth a time delay between sign up and publishing if only 24 hours. Hopefully some of the bizarre attempts at free publicity might be reduced by something like that.
Not wanting to distract from your topic, which I have to agree with it does make you feel as if you are wasting your time.
The queue to review flagged Hubs is long enough that it takes about a week for them to get to things that only have one flag. When lots of people report a problem, that bumps it up.
If someone has created a lot of hubs that violate the TOS, it's better to flag their account for review. That seems to get a faster response for users who are making lots of bad content.

If we flag a hub, does it say which hubber put in the flag, or is it anonymous. I mean, could someone turn around and flag your hub to retaliate? How does it work exactly? Thanks.

In a thread a few days ago, a discussion began about accounts which have been here quite some time and have a lot of published hubs that are noticeably breaking Hubpages ToS. Despite the accounts being flagged...
