Hubpages has 'unpublished' a poem that is both informative and respectful - and written on an important issue - bulimia! I have first-hand knowledge of this disease - being involved in the world of gymnastics! Is anyone else experiencing 'over-zealous' policing of their hubs?
sort by best latest
I don't understand how that can happen. Seriously? Did you get a reason why?
@Homesteadabound: One of my hubs was unpublished too! After only SIX months tho...sigh..this is the third they've tried to censure.I do not want them to succeed this time - it's just not right!...
I'm curious...do people that flag an article wield that much power or is it an administrative decision?
Yes, Anyone can flag a Hub. And if they flag it a few times Hubpages will act.
ImKarn23 - mine is just a compilation of what it took to reach 150 hubs, who would have thought?
pagesvoice - I did not receive a reason, but if you want to look at the hub: http://homesteadbound.hubpages.com/hub/Hubba-Bubba...
They cited 'adult content', but i have written on topics such as sexual abuse, rape, pap smears etc - all 'adult content' - some using profanity as well! Not this one! Please voice your opinion to email@example.com Thanks
@Bridalletter: Yes, i also had one recently unpublished due to 'pixilated images'. Interestingly, the hub was 6 months old..
My poem just got flagged again!!
how does one know when something has been 'flagged'?
They won't let it be published until you fix whatever problem they have with it.
I also would like to know how we find out if our Hubs have been flagged.
Hubpages will let you know if they find reason to remove your Hub until it is fixed of the problem they see.
In my opinion, flagging a hub for using all bold font is reasonable. I would consider that a service both to the author and to readers. By comparison, a site like Wikipedia does not permit such extensive use of bold either.
Wouldn't the bold font make it easier to read for those with impaired vision? Also why is it an option if HubPages frowns upon it??
@JThomp42: I can assure you there was nothing in this poem of a sexual or defamitory nature! Please voice your opinion at firstname.lastname@example.org - Your hub could be next! Thanks so much!
Oh Karn, Believe me I've had several Hubs flagged over pure nonsense. It shouldn't be left up to one person to decide on such things. There should be at least 2 administrators deciding. We put too much hard work in a Hub to be flagged over nonsense.
