    What can cause a person to be banned from Hubpages?

    I was checking on some of the Hubbers I follow and found that one has been banned from Hubpages.  Wonder what offense would cause that.  Duplicates maybe?

    Well, here's my instant thought: Using unethical, vulgarity comments. I noticed others banned and it was due to issues of this nature.

    it may be due to various reasons: too many duplicate contents, too many malicious links in the articles, too many marketing activiitis in the articles, too many backlinks(mostly gained through black hat methods) which hubpages think could endanger its authority on search engines, etc. so you would have to watch out those in order to stay safe on hubpages.

    I at one time got temporarily banned up to three days for "dueling it out" with a religious right-wing neo-conservative nut on the forums. Never underestimate the power of the crusader army. . .

    Consistently breaking the ToS of HubPages.
    Spam comments, spam Hubs, spam spam spam.

    duffsmom asks a very important question, "What causes a person to be banned from HubPages?". Here is the link if you are interested. Well, let me start by informing you that I'm not going to cover all the things others have. I've discovered the... read more

    I think writing too many articles of certain types that violate ToS... but not necessarily vulgar, etc.

    I received three warnings. All of them ended with something like, "If you continually do this, you will be banned from HP".

    I asked a lot of questions about how to correct the first offending hub. The second one, I just deleted. I also asked how serious the banning threat is. No answer on that question.

    But, it deflated me for a while. I got out of Amway when I learned that you never really "own your own business" because the Amway people can kick out anyone at anytime. It seems like a big risk to invest so many hours into writing hubs only to get banned.

    The first hub had too many quotes. I replaced those with links. I spent days on that hub, only to rewrite it to a less valuable version.

    The second one was a hub about how to date Ukrainian women using dating sites. I write on this topic (I have a blog) for one reason: to add some decency to the field. I believe a radical who started crying over my anti-Christian rock music hub flagged it for being a hub about porn. He commented that the blog had nude photos. It doesn't.

    And, the hub had too many links, and was labeled "overly promotional". That is probably true. I put a LOT of links to individual blog posts.

    The third came in the wave of accidentally flagged hubs. It was quickly corrected by the HP staff.
