When we edit a profile on HubPages, when you scroll down you see an option to check yes or no to possible editing with Hub Pro. I was wondering what people think of this option, and do you recommend it?

While I tend to agree with you, for clarity, you do get final say. Edits are not permanent if you don't like the edits you are allowed to change them back once they are completed.
I have been writing for years and never employed the assistance of an editor — not even for my print publications. I guess I'm a control freak when it comes to my own original writings! :-)
The two communications I got from the hubpro editor were basically form letters. One before the editing and one after the editing. Generic and impersonal. Only one comment was added that mentioned a trivial fact written in my hub.
Thank you for sharing your experience, misterhollywood. That was exactly my concern with choosing this option!
Courtney, Have you contacted HubPages about this? To completely rewrite your hub and change the pictures is very disturbing. This is not good and is deceptive to your readers. You can start a forum thread on this to see what other hubbers think.
Wow, very disheartening, Courtney. This kind of activity was my concern! In the HubPro Blog it says they will: "Communicate with Hubbers about the changes made to their Hubs." Do you recall receiving any correspondence from them for your approval?
The 2 communications I received from the HubPro editor read like form letters. I was addressed as pumpkincat210, my screen name and not by my first name. It was very impersonal.
As a new Squbber (that means a transplanted Squid), I'm not exactly sure of this process. However, I would think that the Hubs with low traffic/low scores would benefit the most from this Hub Pro option.
I would think so to but the directions they came out with it is the other way around. It says below (in about the fifth paragraph down - How HubPro Works) they will begin with what I said:
