What are the reasons why some writers are banned here at HP?
Being a newbie and encountering someone who has been banned, I got curious as to the reasons why you will be banned.
If they spam, and constantly go against HubPages rules and guidelines, they are warned and may have their accounts deleted and banned. All their content will be removed as well.
The main reason of being banned is using spun articles and low quality writing for the sake of SEO of personal websites, if any one play fair and write original quality content, he will never be banned, though HP are not strict enough.
Some of these questions will be answered for you by skimming over the FAQ's and learning section of hubpages. I believe a few additional ones, would be to continually submit work that is highly promotional in hature, or copy others works on a continual basis, either here on hubpages, or elsewhere on the internet, would be a means for dismissal. Even harassing or undermining another hubber via personal email linked to their hubpages account will get you banned. Questionable content, either in the forums or posting of rude or vulgar remarks. These are certainly some ways that will most likely not give you a good name here on hubpages. But there probably are others far and in between to add to this list. Hope this bit helps.
Sometimes it easy to tell why-for example some people are abusive to people on the forums or on hubs or they post spam. Other times it isn't as easily identifiable because they may be sending inappropriate messages to other hubbers through email that Hubpages monitors.
One can get banned if one spams, copies content, is rude, or writes hubs on topics that violate the hubpages rules etc
they don't play
by the rules.
'do not publish
contents, post no
nude photos or
use obscene, vulgar
languages [that's just the little my small brain can remember] etc
I'd like to say here that I'd read a HP moderator's statement in the forums that says that when you are banned - your content will no longer be "live" on HP or the net - but that your content is still there so that you can see it.
This is extremely important for people - and is a very good thing.

I've spent hours today tracking down a blogger on WordPress who has numerous blogs and stole one of my best hubs. This impacts my traffic and, thus, my earnings capacity. It happens so frequently (and to so many other hubbers) that it is not only time-consuming and frustrating, but makes me and...
