Just because your hub has been featured, does not mean it was seen by human eyes at HP and approved.
There may be warnings given to hubber like this one:
CONTENT WARNING: This Hub appears to be about multi-level marketing
Hub pages has restricted topics. Google Adsense has rules about type of content that is against their TOS.
I did have one hub about MLM but it was flagged up, it became a different hub entirely, no longer was I marketing more just providing information about it. I had to removed all my personal contact and payment details, personal MLM websites, the lot. And state clearly I am not using hubpages as a sales medium, only to provide information and in fact, any products I sell can be found far cheaper on Amazon.
I prefer it as it is now. But if my customers in my locality read it, it could put me out of business. But honestly, my hubpages are on track to be dominating the income I ever earned through the MLM industry.
I'm glad that HubPages is good enough to actually be able to know whether your hub is against the rules or not before you even submit for publication... It's brilliant.
I do have a couple of overly-promotional hubs which are designed to provide LOADS of support for the contents of the hub, in which case I am perfectly happy if revenue is disabled on those hubs as they are entirely non-profit - those hubs are the Homophobic, Racist, Bigots and Cannabis: A Real Addiction.
Thanks for your response!
I've met a couple of people who do what your hub describes, and I've never heard of it being a scam or illegal.
If I were you, I'd delete the negative comments as spam.
You can go back and fix your hubs. You need to follow the rules of hubpage, and you need to find the little mistakes that you made on your writing and topics.

I have a question going. Two or three hubbers are a) not answering the questionb) harrassing me with accusations.What is the correct procedure for this. So far I have simply deleted the comments, but this gets tedious.
