I don't use bad language. I think it's more creative than anything and I know that South Africans have loved it!
It may fall into a grey area. I don't know.
I’m cetain it’ll fall within a grey area for HP. It shouldn’t though, since it’s just a mythical story, but then...
The link doesn't seem to be working for me.
Yup, they unpublished it. So i have my answer.
Are there parts you think you can tweak to make it acceptable?
Nope. It's actually the language of the story that makes it what it is. It's poetical, rhymic, etc. It manages to tell a rather sexual story without being crude, rude, vulgar, pornographic, or anything else. The language is fun, lighthearted, and dances.
Maybe it's just me, but I didn't think it was that great of a story line. Your writing was fine, and it would be a great way of teaching kids many of the various words for euphemistically describing genitalia.
Ooops, sorry. I thought you were asking for comments, so my purpose was to comment honestly. I think you are a good writer.
No, I wasn't. I sincerely wanted to know if the piece was suitable for hubpages. It's not crude or rude. It has not vulgar language. The piece is written in a poetic style with a certain rhythm. Of course, I fully understand it's not to everybody's taste. It was supposed to be a fun piece. Rochelle, truly, I don't need flattery for my writing. The topic is, I suppose, closed. I wanted to know if it was suitable. I got sent a rather stern letter saying it wasn't, and if I didn't change it or take it down, I would be banned from hubpages. I was simply explaining to Robert Sacci why I wouldn't change the piece to suit hp standards. The bottom line is that the entire piece is taken from a Zulu myth about a creature who sleeps with woman at night. I was supported by documentary evidence. So, no, I couldn't change either the story, and if I changed the language, well, the entire piece depended on the language. Anyway, the case is closed. Hubpages has spoken, and I have deleted the piece.

I have a hub that currently gets an amount of Google views per day I'm not allowed to specify, but which is certainly much more than most of my hubs that have already been moved were getting on Hubpages proper. Unfortunately, I think that there may not be a place for it on a HubPages network site...

Hi,Can I claim a spotters fee for finding links for pending hubs on the site ( $20?)There are two:=> They appear in the 'next' and 'previous' boxes for display of links within a link if they happen to be just that - next or previous. This may explain why the SERP sometime shows 'next' or...

Now think! With all of the questions that are being asked about alter egos I thought we could have some fun and lighten up the mood. You can answer the question more then once and you can change yourself everyday if you choose. Let's mix it up if you could be anyone on HP who would it be? Remember...

While at a doctor's appointment with my husband, my cell phone rang. This is not a common thing, as I don't have a so-called "smart" phone, and I very, very rarely give out the number. It's for emergencies and keeping in touch while away from home.I had earlier tried to reach...

I have been a member of Hubpages for 2 years now, but have just recently began using it to post my own work. While I understand that internet users search for information, and that these Hubs containing useful information draw in more money, I am also somewhat offended that I received an...
