either positively or more likely negatively? Will these new feature eventually cause some writers to stop writing for HubPages altogether & others to leave HubPages entirely to other sites or to establish their own sites?

The designation of featured & unfeatured (as well as corresponding reason) are clearly posted on our statistics page 24/7, this should more than suffice to encourage writers to edit & repair. NO reason whatsoever to post publicly on our profi
Makes no difference to me I guess. The majority of google viewers aren't going to my profile page, and I don't care what most hubbers think of me or my writing. Lol! So guess it doesn't bother me, and if it did I think I'd improve my articles.
Nor do I care much about the opinion of others....who may not even know what "featured" means. It's the deliberate of the REPEAT info/message from Team to us...like "just in case we don't KNOW," they're HIGHLIGHTING it on our profile page.
Essentially it's all in the eye of the beholder. Five years ago the same hub may have been featured. A new editor is hired and suddenly that hub is not up to quality standards. Trying to be what others want you to be never makes one happy.
I wouldn't say I feel the least bit alienated here - just more careful about what I may post and/or trying to figure a way to make SOME things fit some version of "the latest cookie cutter". (Just cautious to the point of doing nothing. :/ )
