    Oh, boy, have you started something!  I've been doing a bit of flagging this morning, hope I haven't gone overboard - the HP team are probably ready to shoot me.

    I'm assuming that any Hub which is designed solely to promote a person's business, or their other sites or articles elsewhere, deserve to be flagged.  Please tell me if not!

    Hmm not sure I entirely agree with your definition. Sure if they write 50 words and add their link yes.  But if the article is reasonable with content and standalone in itself and not a cut/paste from the link why not?

    If there is any doubt in your mind, go ahead and flag it.  Anything that is flagged will be reviewed by someone from HubPages.  For hubs that are borderline we tend to give the author the benefit of the doubt if they don't have a pattern of abuse.

    Until such a time as we have a flagging mechanism for authors, if you see an author that has a whole bunch of violating hubs the best thing to do would be to contact us by email.  A brief note describing the behaivor and including the username of the author in question should be sufficient.

    Thanks for helping out the community!

    Lissie,

    I agree that if they write a good article, that's fine.  The ones I flagged didn't seem to be standalone - they were more like teasers for their site.

    In general, if you just don't think the content is very good giving it a thumbs down may be more appropriate than flagging it.  HubScore is supposed to help differentiate between the "good" and "bad" content that meets the general guidelines.

    If you flag a hub, one of the conditions below should apply.  (Other usually means it doesn't meet the Adsense program policy conditions in one of the less common ways that are not listed such as hacking content or excessive profanity).

        * Adult - Nudity, sexually explicit content or links to adult or pornography sites
        * Gambling - Promotes gambling or links to sites that promote or offer gambling for money
        * Spam - Solely promotes another site, especially when Hub links all point to one site
        * Low Quality - Empty, nearly empty or could not be useful or interesting to anyone
        * Deceptively Tagged or Titled - Contains misleading title or tags that don’t match the Hub’s content; includes irrelevant, and excessive tagging
        * Not Written In English - Primarily written in a language other than English
        * Other - Violates the HubPages Terms of Use in a way other than those listed above

    I just flagged a bunch of sexual content.  Would it not be easier just to institute filters that block these hubs from being published at all?
