Hi, I was hoping someone could tell me what the guidelines are for flagging a hub.
I came across one just now that I am not sure about and I don't want to flag something that maybe okay.
* Adult - Nudity, sexually explicit content or links to adult or pornography sites
* Gambling - Promotes gambling or links to sites that promote or offer gambling for money
* Spam - Solely promotes another site, especially when Hub links all point to one site
* Low Quality - Empty, nearly empty or could not be useful or interesting to anyone
* Deceptively Tagged or Titled - Contains misleading title or tags that don’t match the Hub’s content; includes irrelevant, and excessive tagging
* Not Written In English - Primarily written in a language other than English
* Duplicate - You believe the text content of this hub was copied from another source
If a hub accumulates a series of flags, then admin takes a look at it, so you shouldn't be afraid to flag a hub if you think something is out of line. There's also a spot to leave a comment for admin if you feel you need to explain what you think is wrong.
Thanks Relache, for explaining. I will flag it! I am sure someone else will come across it and flag too it soon enough.

What do you do when you read a hub that is purely promotional?The hub itself may be well-written and enjoyable, but clearly it is all about promoting a company, product, or service. Do you flag it? Do you ignor it? Do you rate it?

I hopped some hubs yesterday, praised some, flagged some and simply hopped some. Today, when I started hopping once again, I found I was getting a number of yesterday's hubs coming up again from all three categories. Is this a glitch?
