What is meant by overly promotional hub? I've seen many hubs which look like product descriptions .
Many hubs I've seen look purely like product descriptions for placement ads but don't fit the description of INFORMATIVE or ENTERTAINING ARTICLE ! Is there a different set of criteria for commercial vs. regular hub? Wouldn't that be an unfair marketing advantage for one user while others are writing truly informitive ARTICLES rather than simply product descriptions? I beleive if everyone wrote product descriptions then noone would be drawn to actual entetaining articles here. Please comment on any articles you've seen which do not like they are in article format but only describe a product !

I find it hilarious that Hubpages pushes the concept of helping new Hubbers yet my Hub which has had very good reception by the community has been flagged for being both overly promotional and substandard.I had 5 social bookmarking links,and 2 other links to free tools absolutely related to the...
