Keep On Hubbing, Some More Things That Need to Be Said to Every Writer on Hub Pages
Well here I am into six months here on the Hub Pages, and I have had some successes and failures.
But I am resolute in saying that nothing have I done without feeling correct in my intetions, and my desire to fulfill what I know is my best efforts...and you know who has shown me it, the support of you all on the Hub. I have been amazed at how many of you that phisophically are in contrast to me in beliefs, ideas, and even artisitically have supported my strange thoughts and writings, Yet showed no prejudice but alliance to the brotherhood of thought. For that I take a bow, in honor of each and everyone of you. And a momment of silence....
Thanx to everyone of you. You know who you are.
I should probably share some news with you, within a weeks of writing on the Hub Pages I was found to be in TOS violation by Google and now can no longer ever earn a dime from Adsense. I have had some dialogue with them, and in paraphrased terms (for I will not make public what the actual response that I finally was given was worded like out of respect to Google and Hub Pages) that my writings on Hub Pages, my own private blog, and other activities I promote through - were deemed to be obscene, inappropriate, promote immoral and hateful ideas, and loosely fall into the internet version on blasphemous propoganda. Oh my goodness, I did not know that I would so quickly find myself in the good company of the greatest writers that have ever been. Now make no mistake, I am at best a writer with some years at the craft and am not putting myself on any totem poles...but isn't this what Socrates, William Blake, Oscar Wilde, Leonardo da Vinci, Machiavelli, Judy Blume, Robert Maplethorpe, Margaret Murray, Aleister Crowley, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the Marquis de Sade, Walt Disney, Elvis, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, the Beatles, Steven Spielberg, Salvador Dali, Max Ernst, and even Ghandi, Martin Luther King and Adolf Hitler have all been accused of at one point or another in their creative careets and endeavors?
And I repeat I am not putting myself in any of their categories... I am a human being, and more so a humble if fittingly egotistical and arrogant artist / writer on even my best day. But I must say that it is with a smirk that I move forward without the endorsement of Google, or any other entity that would label and brand me so hastily. I stand by anything that I have written, and point toward the potentially narrow minded view that the big bad wolf and all his f**ked up minions stand upon, all in the name of pure idealism. What I would call coporately sanctioned censorship.
It took me almost two weeks of editing just to remove Google ads from showing on all of my hubs. If I cannot make a dime from Google, why would they continue to allow their ads to earn money on my bad little hubs so controversial that I am blacklisted. And I have quickly discovered that there are alternative revenue streams that I am pursing. But fear not, I have made my alleigance to Hub Pages, and will continue to ever post my work here first and in its unadultered forms here in purest artistic intentions. So thank you all that read my work here, for Scamazon ain't earned me a dime yet. And it is likely that all my work here is for the benefit of the ones who matter to me the most, you the fans, the readers, and my fellow comrades of art to which I ever conspire with all my powers of light and darkness. I am evil and good with every keystroke of my fonts to notepad, and I do it out of love and hate for you the fans. Blessings to all of you.
I also want to express that I had my first poem be taken off the hub for revision this week, for the same TOS violation, even with no Google ads running. But admittedly it had racial slurs and metaphors that not in bad intent to any group, infact the problem was that in a single poem I made racial and hateful remarks about every single group of human beings including my own...and well I think the Hub Pages admin had to cover its electromagnetized assettes finally, but you know what I didn't get mad. I became an artist, as I said in a former hub some of you might remember ' I had finally created something worthy of being exiled for, and therefore worthy of being called art - so much so that for a momment I breathed that amazing air that of all those aforementioned writers and artists, for a momment I knew what Oscar Wilde must have felt like at his trial for just one second. Not the rush he must have felt, but just a glimpse. And I realized, that I was more than willing to revised four lines of a thirty five line poem, in fact being an artist wasn't I obligated to covertly get my same subversive message across with eloquence, and with a sexy cou de tat? M**ha F**k yes I was!!!!!
And in 24 hours and even more sinister version of an already great poem was born, so I salute Google for their inability to get an erection long enough to be marketable to the common people, I salute Scamazon for being the corporate whore that they always have shown themselves to be since the earliest days of the internet. I salute Blogger for being the easiest to use sell out interface yet to grace the blogosphere, I salute MSN for being Billy Gateways bitchy little step brother and my favorate email system to exploit, I salute everyone at Fleabay for buying their way out of Federal Fraud charges and prison sentances that you or I would still be serving if we had stolen that much product under the radar since the eighties, I salute YouTube for being the biggest barely working answer to the death of television we could hope for in HD, and I salute Hub Pages for trying to give all of us a medium to do something real with, and still surf the edges of all the dragons that they are having to pacify and work with on a daily basis. And finally I want you to salute the one forgotten entity in my surely to be edited rant...you all of you hub page writers, editors, admins, contributors, readers, and even the silent wallflowers who pop in and out everyday without logins, or profiles. To those about to Rock, I salute you...
And my friends and enemies out there know what I am about to say...
KEEP ON HUBBING
