Six days, and still getting the red skull of death, warning for phishing sites. This Hub has no links.
Did you rerun the check violations now button? I got red skull, removed the RSS and reran the violations and it disappeared immediately.
Where are you seeing the warning?
I don't see any links in that Hub, nor do I see any issues with violations in the past. It is currently published.
Are you referring to your browser warning the site content is malware or are you referring to looking at the list of your Hubs in your account on HubPages?
This may not mean beans, but new Hubs do not have the RSS feeds block to use any longer. I got a red skull today too, fixed the problem, but it still acts like there is a violation. The best & Happy New Year
Looks like they've unpublished it. I assume you clicked on the message within the Hub to see if there's more information?
I unpublished it, after not being able to figure out what was wrong with it. So far only a generic reply from Hubpages.
Makes it difficult for us to offer any help. Is there a warning message when you open the Hub? If not, it's probably some kind of glitch. There has been a red-skull glitch recently.
Interesting. I republished it a few minutes ago. Then ran the violations check again. According to that, there are no remaining violations. When I ran it about 20 minutes ago it still gave me the same old 'link to phishing site' warning.
So I opened it up, and it no longer has the warning message. But...I still see the red skull of death on my account page. I suppose it is a glitch.
I got that skull on my most popular hub. Turned out the reason why was because of the images I used from the original websites. I had to delete the link the picture's website from the photo because the original owner of the pictures let the website go downhill. I just sited the picture's location and deleted he links, ran the check again and there was no more skull. Hasn't been another skull appearance since. Hope this helps.

I've got the "Overly Promotional" red skull of doom on my top trafficked hub.Naturally it was the first one I edited. The affiliate links and "overly promotional" warnings at the top of the hub went away in the workshop. I republished it last night, and it's still published...

Just got home from the hospital and checking my HP account I found the Red Skull of Death on my Social Services hub. I read my hub over, couldn't find any violations and when I went to check my account again the Red Skull of Death was gone. Anyone have any ideas? I'm glad it's...
