When I went to the profile page of a Hubber I hadn't heard from for a while, the page states, "Sorry that user no longer exists." It just struck me the wrong way.
Can you please change the wording? The person doesn't cease to exist simply because they aren't here. Maybe change "user" to account or profile. Or add the words "on HubPages" at the end. Or both.
Also, this would really be a good place for marketing and provide a small list of other profiles to visit instead.
I remember a request about the wording on unpublished hubs, but can't find it. Did you change the wording on those?
Since I'm removing content this week, and have a running list of removed URLS, here's the message for the removed hub:
410. That page doesn't exist.
The author may have decided to delete it, or there could be an error with the URL that you are using.
Back to HubPages
One of these pages may be useful
(Shows one hub that was actually sort of related to the one I removed.)
Good thanks. I am glad that they did change the message for removed hubs. Now they need to change the message for removed Hubbers.
I'm glad to see they changed it. I was the one who originally posted the problem, but never saw the change since all of hubs are now featured. Thanks for showing it.

Is there ever a time when you are not happy with a word or words in a poem? Do you spend time trying to change the word and/or wording, or move on?
