    Those old forum posts at the bottom of the forums are usually irritating, but I  found this gem from Simone Smith which, even after all this time, does a better job of explaining the reasons behind HubPages' moderator standards than anything the current staff have said:

    Simone was such a great communicator!

              @sallybea smile --- thank you so much for the warm wish. I have had a great Christmas and New Year's celebrations and I have until Monday to rest-up and get back on the "HubPages Trail." My best to You and Everyone on Hubpages.

      Simone was just the best and is sorely missed.   She was a great communicator with a wonderful sense of humor.

    So efficient. She was the best. I do miss her popping in and out of every forum to answer questions and moderate conflicts. She was such a good person. I guess we should let newer hubbers/writers know she left a couple years ago to pursue her own writing site . . . she's alive and well. We just miss her. smile

    How wonderful to see an appreciation of former members.

      She was a staff member, one of the moderators.  As Jan says, she has moved on to other projects now.  She was one of HubPages' greatest assets, IMO.

          I would pay cash money to just be thought of in the same breath as Simone. Or Marisa. Either one. I am just being honest. I am very grateful to be a small part of HubPages and Love the people with this fine website.
          smile to all.

      @Kenna -- did you read Marisa's description about Simone? Her comment spoke to me and I can share this with you and everyone here on HP. I would pay cash money to just be thought of in the same breath as Simone. Or Marisa. Either one. I am just being honest. I am very grateful to be a small part of HubPages and Love the people with this fine website.
      smile to all.

    I agree with Kenna. Writing is not an easy life and it's great to see that work keeps giving.
