I truly don't think there is a totally right or wrong answer to this question. I am basically against the process as I have seen so many people bare their souls in the wonderful writing on Hubpages. I like the possible reasons Elderberry suggested.
As a freelance writer I have chosen not to write articles for Hubpages or Ezine but have seen them offered. I guess what bothers me is so many people put so much of themselves in their articles that over time you get to think of them as a friend.
We have all certainly heard of using ghost writers for fiction novels, which is very acceptable. Being hired to write a specific article and post it under your account is also okay in my eyes.
And this is certainly the answer from Mark that I would expect! Honesty thorough and through.
Is having ads on your hubs, selling Ebay or Amazon items really the same as publishing an article under your name that you didn't write? Maybe for a very factual type of hub it is okay.
Here's a fun little question--why the little read down vote above. Did I not dot my "i's" or cross my "t's"---it makes no sense.
No idea since you didn't put up a controversial comment. There are really quite a few negatives for commenters, which I think is unusual.
The Hubber still makes money, it just means they have to factor in paying someone else for the articles written by the third party. Nothing wrong with this, it is purely a business transaction, (although I have never done this personally).
If they were looking for some of the great relationships that tend to develop on Hubpages, I think they would do their own writing. Unless they have a huge fan base it is doubtful they are making money after paying a freelance writer.
They may write their own stuff too of course, but simply cannot produce the volume of quality articles they need to in order to make a living. In this case choosing an author to pay to write for you too can be a practical option.
