I am reading from lensmasters that some are going to try Hub Pages, at least for now. Some are going to other sites like Infobarrel and Wizzley.
Some are going to let their lenses be moved over to Hub Pages, and then sort out the mess they have, and then maybe move some of them to other places.
A big one is that Squidoo has left such a bad taste in the mouths of lensmasters that they are now afraid of this happening again, so their lenses will go to their blogs and websites.
Fortunately for myself, I smelled a rat over a year ago with all of the locked lenses, lenses being deleted that were written by good writers. The final straw was when the payment minimum was raised. I had already deleted most of my lenses anyway and was left with only 2. One I trashed, and the other I simply revamped and published it here.
I feel for the lensmasters who have a large amount of lenses. We spent so much time in reworking lenses, fighting the filters that were flagging good lenses, it was pathetic. Now lensmasters have to do it all over again, thanks to Seth Godin who didn't have the decency to let lensmasters know that the current situation may happen.
