    I just read the HP update on Google. The question is, for the rest of us that are here for the long run; Is the end of a pseudo-commercialized writers site? Or, it is a capitulation of HP as a business? Or, even worse, are we all going to be a flotsam or writers set adrift  on the web by the arrogance of the Great Google?

        It is in the last HubPages Weekly Report that we all get. And it gives a link to a FAQ about "Spammy Articles"
        Very depressing, actually.

          I read it, but I didn't understand it.

            Rachael, I agree, it is strange but the Gist of newest Google constraints is to beat down allowing SPAM. Sadly for many of us, this means they are going thru a series of limitations that will hurt us in an effort to improve the World,

    I have another question: Was that 'gator in the photo asleep when the vine grew over its nose?

      LOL! I live in a community on the Little Manatee River in Florida. We call her "Mama Gator". She comes down and has a brood of 2-3 and the we don't see again for a while. She was actually around 11-feet last year.

    Could somebody please post a link to it - I can only recall an update about how HubPages defines spam. Nothing to do with Google

    Don,
    I received two warnings from my antivirus. I did not pay attention to the first one except for the item removed. The second time, I noticed that, like the first, it was connected with Google Chrome again so I looked at the details
    and it was suggested that I switched browsers so I did.

    I do not know if the problem is Google or just a virus.
