Work Making You Sick?

Censor Me...Tee Hee!

 So recently someone flagged one of my Hubs. If anyone here has read it, it was a Hub on spotting an old time friend who I discovered was on drugs back in my teen days, and after seeing her walking the streets I realized she slipped down that path and pretty much destroyed her life.

Hopefully that rings a bell to those of you whom may be wondering where the Hub went.

At any rate, my story was told, and some pleasant do gooder, flagged it. It got flagged for explicit language, and sexual references.

I read through the Hub and found a few sex references, but hell...who doesn't talk about sex? Or who has never encountered a naked body, or a porn flick?

At any rate, before I go on further, my story was flagged, and now is off of the site. I thought it was a good story, with a good moral on drugs, and where they can lead you...or whatever.

But alas my Hubby friends, someone disagreed, and snubbed my dirty voice; my story, the way it was to the exact. I didn't leave out a detail- maybe that's my problem? I tend to tell it exactly as it happened. I always had been told to pay attention to detail when writing. I guess I have to, from now on, consider that some of my audicence may live in bubbles, so I should be more careful next time.

At any rate, they censored my ass, and being the lazy motha frucka I am, I won't re-publish it. Maybe when I find the energy.

When I saw my new censored out Hub, I wanted to smack someone, flip em the bird, cuss like no one has ever cussed before, and then write an article that a sleaze porn mag would be proud to publish on their front page. But... ah, the energy involved...so little time... so lazy. So what?

Censored...

Yawn.

Bored.

Tired.

Tired of those who live in imaginary bubbles, and try to banish anything that may be considered sexy, ugly, fat, or crude. Tired of hearing that Santa is too fat, and that boobs should be blurred out of Disney.

(No seriously, I recently came across an episode of Wizards of Waverly Place, where they blurred out the moms hot rack. God forbid Betty or Junior see cleavage!)

Seriously now folks, most babies suck on boobies they moment they pop out of that region down below. (Normally I'd use a more crude word, but I might offend one of you over the top sensitive folks who think that there is only one word for Vagina).

I guess as soon as kids can form thoughts some people are quick to blindfold the little bastards (oops, did I offend someones bastard kid?)

Boobs for some reason become harmful or something? So much so, that they're blurring out cleavage on Disney! HAH!

Man... tis' a shame.

At any rate, my rant does not match my title.  When I sat down and attempted to spat out my usual fun office stuff, I got angry by the end of the first paragraph, and deleted it.

Being the lazy creature I am by nature, instead of starting a new Hub, with a new title... you got this.

And mostly it was due to that stupid flagged Hub.

So till I figure a way around spatting out what I want to spat out without offending someone, I'll stick to G rated garbage which primarily bores the 'crapaloppa' out of me.

That's All Folks!

LOL shit happens. It does not really depend on one particular person that flagged you, cause when flagged hub goes through manual review. So if it got removed, it broke the TOS.

Whether we like it or not HP is a business that feeds several families, and they have bills to pay and kids to feed - they don't want to lose their revenue stream because of BigG deciding they published something inappropriate. Hence the censorship...

Mellas, as you know I read that hub and commented on it, and it was a great story with a powerful message. In fact, it was one of those 'I can't stop reading' stories that I would have loved to read again. I'm shocked and saddened that it was flagged and taken down. Anyone reading it would appreciate the positive message you conveyed about where kids/teens can end up when they take the wrong path.

I'm totally bummed for you. :(

The funny thing about taking down a hub when flagged is that I flagged a known plageriser, who continues to plagerise... yet their hubs are still up, banking out? Weird how some sexy talk will get you pulled, but copying others work wont? weird n wild.

I have not read it because I was absent most of the time. Life gets in the way of HP, sometimes. However, for this thought, I am with you. When we speak of literature, you tell a story and a story is about life. Perhaps, the person who flagged you is a self-righteous, too perfect for his/her own good. How can we appreciate literature if we never write what we saw or experienced?

I had also read and commented ( I am sure ) on that hub. It was a good lesson for people to learn. Too bad it was taken down! Bummer!

I seriously can't remember anything that could hve been flagged from that hub. I was going to post a hub called Sexcapades; an explicit biography of being a man-whore, but decided I didn't want my family to read it. I guess I would have been flagged for posting that one. Good thing I keep all my hubs clean and Politically correct...wink, wink.

We live and learn I guess. I already know I am personally offensive (everyone tells me), I guess you are now too.

Dammit!  I missed it Mella.  Would you send it to me?  I'll publish it on my blog and you can link to it if you want.  I would like to read it though regardless.

It reminds me of once I was watching National Geographic.  They were showing these native women dancing topless and, you know, there breasts weren't too attractive.  But their was one native gal whose boobs appeared to be large and full, but they blurred hers, but not the others.  Apparently, they make a distinction between attractive boobs and unattractive ones.

Ok.  Write me.

But man! They are blurring out the titties that obviouslly made them grow a chubby.... lol. Thats too funny.... actually its ridiculous!!! But you know what I mean... one person decided that ones knockers were too sexy for TV... but the floppy ugly knockers, those are okay!?!?!?! How do I get to your blog? Id like to read it. : )

Chi Chi's boobies are always getting blurred out. It's an outrage! She spent way too much money on them to have them blurred out! ;)

"Zee flaggairs moost be stooped!" she says with French passion and animal vehemence.

Mella, I really liked that hub. It was a good morality tale, and a story well-told. Sometimes your language can be a little fruity, but that didn't detract from the narrative in my view. There are far more offensive hubs on hubpages than that one. Do you remember that dreadful hub about Barrack Obama being the Anti-Christ? Some of the high moral ground hubs are so patronising that they REALLY offend me, but they never get pulled. And as for Pest's favourite hobby hub, that had me laughing for days, and how is that a bad thing? If you can bear to, Mella, you should clean up that hub and re-post it, because some kid might trip over it on Google one day, and it just might turn their life around!

Hi Mella. It is thecrustycurmudgeon.wordpress.com. The most recent post is pretty straight, but usually I'm way more wacky, offensive and opinionated, so look around a little please. I'd love to publish it - I know your writing and others have told me how good this was - so I don't even need to see it before making a decision. Of course, I'll link back to your stuff here, so it's all good.

I see I've goofed again. Ok. It's you know who.

Mellas, the sweet Captain has been ravaged by the sea and by many women who seek his family jewels. There has been mutiny aboard his ship along with much drinking, lustful escapades, delicious shenanigans involving slurping and burping and pizza eating. Poor fellow barely knows who he is at this point. Chi Chi never lets the man sleep. In fact, I can ... barely...finish this...she's running...running after ...

I'm suprised that no one flagged this hub, as many naughty words are being used! LOL A lot of the hot hubbers are writing about pussys and sex all the time and no one flagged them?! That was a great hub, I gotta share this!
