HubPages Feature System is broken
Stop moving the keys around, you are creating an unreliable sound.
Aside from the blue haired lady censors employed by HP.
HubPages uses little almost senile "beauty, recipe and DIY" writers to censor. That is just fine. But now they have just dropped all credibility on the notion of featured.
Last ten articles on HP and I have 5 featured and five not featured. The not featured are double the traffic of the featured and all other things are equal.
3 articles over 1300 words and every bell and whistle plus more and they are not featured. Just go to my profile page. By HP standards I am an outstanding writer. And by the fact that I make thousands a month writing, I am a sought after and successful writer and by spell check I do not misspell words or have bad grammar.
So HP is flawed and will be more flawed if all that happens is that this article gets attacked rather than thought about..
For you who attack me because I am critical -- I will bet you never ever ever spent a single night under fire or in a rain drenched hole dug by your own hands.
Died of Cancer and was revived.
Got shot by a gun in the Belgium Congo --- it no longer exists but wonderful Jimmy Carter sent us there for fun and politics.
Buried in 12 feet of snow in an avalanche

Have to Bachelor degrees and a Doctorate and several Associate degrees
Have hiked over 14,000 feet 10 times.
So if you are just a little housewife writing about beauty aids and supporting HP like an automaton I will delete and not publish your comments or ridicule you to hell and back. I hope that is clear.
HP is not my revenue stream or my self esteem
