Should the flag decision be brought to the attention of the stuff before the hub is actually flagged
Should the flagger be treated the same as the one that is flagged? When a member flag a hub, her/his decision should be brought to the attention of the stuff who then decide if to flag the hub. Wouldn't that be more just and fair to both sides and prevent misuse? Who is the judge? Why is the power in the hands of one party only? How would one define 'innocent'?
You don't seem to understand how flagging by members works.
When site members flag a Hub, all that does is alert admin. It's then up to the admin team to review the content and make any decisions in regards to violations, or take any actions. Nothing actually happens to the Hub until the administrative review occurs.
Well, I had one of my best articles flagged by a Hubber, and now it's sent again for re-publication for revision by the HP team. I think there should be some consequences for people who flag for no reason because that would at least make them think twice before flagging someone's hard work for illegitimate reasons.
The decision to flag or not is difficult. I choose to flag only in the most severe or noxious times. This for me includes nudity, especially that one guy who posted pictures of himself sitting in front of the computer naked.
For me, the decision is always based on 'does this meet the TOS?' It is healthier for the site if we take some responsibility to flag offensive material.

I don't know if "vetting" is even the right word here, but I think we need some sort of approval process for new hubbers. Though I've only been here a few months, it feels like there has been a real increase...

I'm trying to find out what happens when you flag a hub. Is it a good or a bad thing? Just thought I would ask before I tried it. Thanks!

In light of the Google algo change, it is now obvious and confirmed that hub-hopping is VERY important. I feel that if you publish here, you should hub hop when you can. As it should hopefully increase our revenue and...

Does the user name of a hubber affect your decision to read or not read their hubs?When your on the hub do you pay attention to the user name of a writer and does it affect your opinion of the hub?

I prefer the old way to flag a hub (I don't remember when you changed it.)Back in the day the different "reasons for flagging" used to really stand out (and I could easily remember which reasons were in which...
