    Why is it against the ToS to discuss earnings?

    Hubpages itself talks about their top earners when you sign up. Why then, is it against ToS to discuss our own earnings?

    Because HubPages owns the website and they get to make the rules.

    well yeah, they are definitely the bosses. I just thought there was possibly a more significant reason behind it. lol

    Most employers will tell you not to discuss earnings.  I think part of the problem is that the focus becomes on the money.  Instead of teamwork and cooperation, we become jealous, and cutthroat. 

    When we find out that someone who we think is equal to us earns more money than we do, we get upset.  We don't always see the work they have done to earn the greater amount.  Maybe they got lucky with a hub topic, but when we focus on our own earnings, we are more likely to do better.

    Plus, if you are making pennies, and find someone who is making thousands, even though they have millions of hubs and years of experience into it, we might get disillusioned that we aren't getting to the thousands faster.

    I can't prove this but I suspect that they do not want earnings discussed because it would make it easier to know the algorithm they use in determining pay.
