Should censorship exist in a hub platform?
While a hub expresses an opinion or a general opinion it still is only an opinion. When does it represent a danger, if danger there is? Shall we censor it?
A hub platform is a microcosm of a society, if we gag it with censorship it becomes a dictatorship.
Then you have answered your own question with your last sentence.
Hubpages is not a democracy, it is a privately owned entity and that entity has been kind enough to open up a platform for writers. I may not agree with all of Hubpages policies but I do respect their right to make those policies and I am free to leave if it becomes painfully evident that I cannot express myself here.

Usually the first thing I do when I log on here is to check out the 'New' hubs to see what's going on. I also usually end up flagging spammy hubs along the way. The thing is that the spammers seem to be following the rules, so I'm not even really sure whether to flag them anymore or...
