Naive hubbers want me to believe that it is rosy on hubpages' planet. Life is so bubbly and rosy that whatever you say, however you say it hubpages gives their blessing! If it is so I invite YOU to prove me wrong. Anyone with guts here? Or the prospect of earning money or a better grade will shut you up?
Can you explain what you want proved wrong? Do you have a problem with HubPages?
My view is HubPages is what you choose to make of it. There are no grades as such. Hubscore doesn't really matter one way or the other. I've been here 4 years and I'm here to learn, write and earn some money at the same time.
I've no complaints what so ever. HubPages works well for me and there are lots of helpful people here.
People who agree are subjective. Because of your goals, you are limited. You depend on their desiderata. In what way do you make sense? Yes, you are rated. Based on what? Here lays also a grey line? I wrote a paper that they they refused to published and it is moving up and down on their rating scale. How is it so?
Nonsense? I don't think so, Ive heard from people who were barred from posting in the forums for reasons that seem like nonsense to me. I was barred from posting for no reason at all, there must be a reason for these random bans.
I am not looking for help. Firstly do you intend to shock and shake the system when you write if not don't answer me! If you sell the beauty of a country, or the pedigree of a dog like the hub of the day, we are not connected with the same fuse.
When people like Perrya writes lies (right wing) about the moral superiority of the U.S. and denigrates Iran upon no facts and you play the opposite game to show how fallacious the views that we have on the world are. I have to make correction! Or, they ask you to moderate your own answers! If people complained already don't you think that the problem is latent at least?
You are closing in on saying what they actual issue is (forum moderation bias? Maybe?). But you aren't there yet. One week they are biased left, next week right, then anti-semitic, then atheist, then.... Well, given all the energy people believe they put into their oppression of everyone its a wonder they get anything else done.
With your attitude and the manner in which your hubs are written. I would censor you. I've had some friends check out your supposed "writing" and you know what? They called it pure hatred, BS, nonsense and not even worthy of reading.
Be lucky it wasn't me who checked out your hubs. And, if you happen to have your hubs flagged....it IS NOT HubPages fault. HubPages agreed with those hubbers who flagged your supposed "writing".
So, get over yourself, clean up your act or just leave. Your choice.
And you are who exactly to tell me what I can say?
I didn't tell this person to shut up. I said something quite different and had you actual read the words I put up and NOT interpret them for your own amusement, then you wouldn't have stated what you did.
I wish I could understand what triggered their censorship. I wrote an email for the details and so far no answer! Lovemychris read the text and it was called "Americans, Europeans, the mob mindset". As a picture I had downloaded an oldie but a goodie a black lynching by the correct white society of the time.
Aww, you are so cute... you poor tortured soul that is going to change the world. By typing random letters after a paragraph of pure tripe. It's old, it's boring, and it has been done by those far more profound, intellectual, creative and talented than you.
But please, continue to rock the world... I enjoy the entertainment.
Your lastest hub is all anyone needs to see true character and that really should bring this attention seeking thread to a halt, just my chillin opinion though, however I am not impartial just the same :
I haven't looked at the OP's stuff because I figured I'd remain impartial and only address this thread and the question. Some version of this question is always coming up for one reason or another.
HubPages has rules. If you want to the kind of stuff they won't publish or unpublish, here's a great example of how "impartial" they are:
Last year I wrote a Hub just to call attention and awareness to the matter of premature births. I had no ads on it, because it was supposed to be "for a cause" - not me. I figured, since it was a "charity-type" of Hub I just wasn't going to follow the rules. I loaded in several links to the March of Dimes site (which is about research and funding to understand and prevent premature births and figured it shouldn't matter since the Hub wasn't intended to be commercial - at all.
I went without notice for about a year, and not long ago someone noticed (I suppose someone decided to flag it for the number of links), and it was unpublished. I removed a couple of links, and the thing was published again.
Point is, if you or anyone else thinks HubPages unpublishes stuff because it's "controversial" or against staff's personal beliefs, keep in mind that nobody appeared to give a hoot (with that Hub) about my not earning any ad money from it or about the intention of calling attention to the matter of very premature babies - and only gave a hoot about the fact that I'd thrown in a couple of repeat links (because I wanted people to notice them, and go to the March of Dimes site). Being against very early premature deliveries and the problems they cause is hardly something too many don't agree with. To be honest, I was pretty disgusted to think it didn't matter if the Hub was intended for something other than earning money, and it was done in the interest of both a cause and a way to do something about one particular premie we, on this site, knew about.
I considered deleting the whole thing, but instead I thought, "OK. So there's no giving any passes to "cause Hubs", and there's only treating all of them as if they're no different from commercial ones - so I clicked on "This Hub is commercial" and let the ads go on it. I figured I may as well play the game the way HubPages (or whoever flagged the Hub) wants it.
It's not naive to know that if a Hubber goes by the rules his Hub stays, and if he doesn't it's likely to be unpublished.
Someone else here has said your Hub(s) contained "hate". Well, my didn't - and HP unpublished it anyway. I chose to just go with the program and not make a big stink about it because, after all, I had disregarded the two-links rule. Just because people aren't always on here making big stinks over some of the minor things that go on and that irk us, it doesn't mean everyone's "naive" or "rosy" and "bubbly" all the time. Personally, I'm not looking for HP's "blessings" when I write. I just try to stay within the rules (with that one exception of that one Hub) when I say what I have to say. It's not that hard, and a skilled writer knows how to say what he has to say in a way that won't get him unpublished.
Thank you for sharing that, Lisa. I have been planning a Hub on a not for profit organisation that helps homeless youth. Like you, I was going to leave it ad free. Having read about your experience, I will just hope that people click on ads on the Hub, and donate the money to the organisation.

If I could have flagged that hub twice I would have. Faceplanting the keyboard does not a writer make. Nor is it going to impress/influence anyone.
The combination of pregnancy hormones and sudden horrible withdrawl from both nicotine and caffeine has made me intolerant of theatrics. I am, however, getting a vague sadistic pleasure from watching someone embarrass themselves more that I usually do.
Exactly since I reached the daily quota of imposing myself through questioning their behavior! It was my only recourse. I did want to give the satisfaction to have shut me off. But can an ordinary person like you understand it? You are the living proof.
