    I don't really know, but I've always wanted to know the answer, too. I just haven't looked into it. I'll look forward to the answers you get!

    I've only flagged two hubs. They were both word-for-word copies of content existing elsewhere. I don't flag for grammar or spelling. If it's an otherwise good hub, I'll email the author instead of commenting, otherwise I don't bother. I'd also be interested in others' opinions on what to flag.

    I have flagged a couple of hubs based on two reasons, first sprinkled bold keywords which don't make any sense and cheap attempts of back-links I mean really cheap something like, "hey, we sell bla bla bla at blablabla.com" Rubbish.

    I flagged two Hubs that were advertising call girl / escort services.

    Profanity would be an obvious reason. If there is reason for others to be offended by the material involved. We are not taking about sensitive issues, but racial or sexist comments. I would flag those.

    Anything that I know is in direct violation of hubpages rules.  Extreme profanity or porn type stuff is also something I will flag.  I would love to see this site stay clean and classy but it is an uphill battle - I have had little response from the admin lately on flagging or inquiries.

    I almost flagged a hub once. I wrote a hub about Colonial Williamsburg and my son wanted to show it to his Social Studies Class. I sent a note to the teacher assuring him the site was clean, and the class opened hubpages on the classroom computer. The first post showed two naked people on a bed; the woman had her legs wrapped around the man and it looked like they were engaged in sex. I got calls from the superintendent of schools, the principal, the teacher and two parents. I was motified. My son was so upset, too. The photo looked like something from a hard-core porn site. My Bible-based hubs get shut down for quotes that appear elsewhere, but this porn stays on... go figga???
