    My friend Goody6 has had a big injustice done to him by the hub pages. His hub was just removed...

    from the hub pages publication. He doesn't know any reason why they did this, and the hub pages reason isn't specific enough to let him know what he must do to correct this problem. He has had this hub on the hub pages since last year. He has 208 followers, and at least 75 comments, and it was popular hub. Can "ANYONE" tell us what  must done to correct this problem?

    It's very simple (and probably says as much at the top of the hub that has been removed): All you have to do is contact HP staff and they will help you figure out why the hub has been unpublished.

    You can do that here:

    I've had hubs pulled down after having been up for a long time. Google changes its rules, and so, when their rules change, hubs that might have been in compliance at one point in time, suddenly aren't. While I sometimes feel that the reasons for this are absurd, it really doesn't matter what I feel, because HP is a privately owned, for-profit company. They don't have to be "fair," nor are they required to grant us the "freedom of the press." They aren't the government, and you and me ain't the press, at least not exactly.

    So, tell your friend to take a breath and calm down. Tell him/her to read what it says at the top of the hub that was unpublished (which probably has a link to the part of the Terms of Service from which the violation is being identified). Do what it says there. If you can't modify the hub to meet the standards, or are unwilling to, then take the article and publish it somewhere else.  If none of that works, and you still need assistance, email HP and let them try to help you out.

    Just remember to be polite. Having a hissy fit and screaming about "injustice" won't get you anywhere. 

    Good luck.

    I've had this same issue more than once.  I don't worry about it, if HP doesn't want my content, there are other sites that DO want it.

    Here's my advice, tell your friend to open an account with blogger, anytime HP decides my material is to real for this site, I simply move it to blogger.  This is a better site than blogger, buy our content shouldn't have to be compromised, simply find the right place for it.
