OMG don't even get me started on this one. GREAT QUESTION! As you might guess, I am fully animated and still experiencing the annoyance and frustration. Truly, if I started to tell you it would take the entire page.
Hmmm, there is the option here of hitting the 'make a hub' about this isn't there, LOL
PR-my very first hub, published for over 10 months, and NOT substandard by any means, was flagged and pulled off the published rack b/c (per the letter I received) it was 'substandard'.
I saw RED. On investigation it was flagged b/c it had "too much personal content" OK...do ya think! It is a MEMOIR!!!
It was a mothers day memoir written the w/e of mothers day-the w/e I joined last year and most certainly my virgin hub, LOL
So...I later posed the question here: are memoirs allowed? and guess what? My question became a featured question in March in one of the weekly newsletters. LOL Oh, the irony of it all.
So...the short answer to this question is: YES.
BTW-I, out of a matter of principle, have yet to 'fix' that wonderful Mothers Day Madness hub that was flagged.
Oh, and in case anyone wants to assume that it did not fit standards by way of # of words (about 1200), quality of writing (take a look at any of my current hubs-it's more of that), # of products used in it (zero) # of watermarked videos or photos (none-used one personal photo I took), etc etc. In other words-other than it had too much personal content it was (ego here:) 'flawless'. LOL
