This happens every time. HubPages notifies me that a broken link has been detected. I verify that the link is indeed broken. If so, I remove it (most part of the rush so many months ago to link to other Hubs, now unpublished). When I save the edit, I see that the former link is now formatted with underlining. Why? To make people think it's still a link? This is a bug. If I wanted to format the former link with underlining, I would select the underline formatting. As it is, I have to edit a second time to remove the unwanted underline.
Please remove this "feature."
It has been doing this ever since I have been a member and declared fixed at least once. Hopefully reporting it again will make them look at it again.
This issue as already said has been around for years and has been reported many times (including by me) and is still unresolved.
The broken link can be replaced with another valid link that is relevant to your hub. Why completely remove it?
I'm talking about removing the forced underlining (no longer a link). Sure, I could add a new link, but right now I don't have time to go searching for a new one. The point of this post was all about the extra step required by HubPages "bug" to remove underlining formatting that should not have been a "feature" after the link was removed.

Hello anyone,With my last 3 hubs I published when I inserted the text it seems to randomly underline a few paragraphs without my input. Its simple to remedy I know but I was wondering why it does this?
