    Why does my hub "Real Whores" need revision? there are no adult words or profanities in the poem.

    "Real Whores" contains nothing pornographic or obscene. Did someone flag it? Is it as easy as flagging a story you don't like to set the writer off down the road to censorship? These are literary hubs and I hope you will consider that. Thanks.

    The hub staff will tell you the reason if you e-mail them.

    I had a hub flagged for revision before and hub team gave me a good response

    Censoring a title containing the word "whore" is too prudish in my opinion. Whore is a perfectly good word, one which is not vulgar or obscene and which won't damage the psyches of kiddies. Please treat us like adults.

    This whole censorship of words is an artifact of uptight religions such as Christianity and Islam.

    Have you ever asked yourself why the four-letter Anglo-Saxon vulgarisms are verboten, but the greek-latin multi-syllabic equivalents are more accepted?  I thought not.  Mindless knee-jerking.
