    Is there anyone else getting this message when creating a new lens with Squidoo?
    Whoops! It looks like you were creating a lens about one of our SquidDon't topics (which means, for the most part, banned spam or illegal or pornographic content).

    You've been taken back to the beginning to try again on a different, friendlier topic. Sorry for the hassle.

    P.S. If you've read our SquidDon't policy and think you're seeing this page in error, you're welcome to let us know.

      There are topics which are banned in Squidoo. That means everytime you try to publish an article which is listed in SquidDon't, it will first scan and if there are keywords that can trigger spam, it won't allow you to publish your lens.

    No.

    What was the topic you were trying to make a lens about?

    Acai Berries?  That's a Squid Don't.

    Suggested servings/recipes/vitamin content of bananas/apples/oranges/kiwi etc?  Submit a bug report and it will get straightened out.

    Anything health related like weight loss or medical pills is not allowed

      Thanks for your answers guys. Squidoo does'nt want me to write on a LENS that is useful to the public, about fruit health. Wow

    I moved some of my lenses to HP after topics such as why having a website is important for business, basic SEO and getting a free business website were deemed "spammy"
    The free business website was linking to Google sites and squidoo itself. Really spammy!

    I have created it once but later on I came to know that they are not crawled by search engines so I am happy with Hubpages here.

      They get crawled just fine, as far as I can see from my stats and referrals.
