I have just had yet another hub automatically unpublished and the reason is claimed to be because of unrelated links/capsules. As far as I can tell all the links and capsules are definitely related to the content of the hub. It seems that HP are getting too strict, to the point that I am seriously getting discouraged from writing here. I am starting to understand Bard Of Ely's frustration with the site. What really annoys me though (ironically) is the fact that I am making a decent income from Hubpages yet I now have no intention of writing any new hubs for fear of wasting my time.

Well, I tried updating the hub and submitted it but received the same email claiming it's against their t&c. Ah well, thats the end of Hubpages for me... At a time in my life when everything else seems to be falling apart too. Just what I needed!
Agreed. I've actually just had another hub unpublished. What annoys me is the fact that these hubs have been published for the last year with no problems.
TBH I've been having a hard time lately and when this happened it was just the icing on the cake, so to speak. I guess I was a little hasty and I will probably continue to write here though will be a bit more cautious in the future.
sparkster, I know how you're feeling.It is a real effort for me to be patient. I am very cautious of what I write now and I don't write as much here anymore. I don't want to spend all that time writing something only to have it rejected.
You can help the HubPages community highlight top quality content by ranking this answer up or down.
I remember seeing that hub, I can't believe they banned your account over it. That's real harsh! Some ppl are making a living here, having their accounts banned in such ways after spending years building up a portfolio of artistic content is crazy.
I have several of my own blogs and websites which receive almost as much traffic as I receive here at Hubpages but my most successful blog has made a whopping 12p! And that's after a couple of years hard work on it!
That's really interesting. I'm just the opposite. I'm a complete loser on Hubpages, but make a little money on my blogs.
Yeah it seems one things works for some but not for others. I do receive tens of thousands of page views here every month and reach payout every month. I have had the hub republished but not until I removed ALL external links and capsules.
