What's going on with banning on HP?
I've had three new followers that I went to check on only to find they were banned from HP....is there a banned virus going around, or something I don't know about?
Hey Til.....When you go to their site, does it state that they are banned? I have read and heard that HP has begun to get stricter and come down on us for all sorts of reasons. There's a slight issue with this, though. We never know why anyone is banned, so it's not much of a warning to the rest of us. Know what I mean? We may not even see anything wrong with a hub....but HP might. Well, wouldn't it be nice to know what we should be avoiding? Keep me posted on this if you come up with an answer. If you know another close follower of theirs, I would send them an email to see if they know anything specific.... Good luck!
Most of these folks were new followers to me so I have no info whatsoever. Makes me nervous hoping I don't wind up in the same boat, you never know, especially when, like you said we never know why someone is banned.
You? banned? Ever? The outcry would bring down the very walls. I have had a couple of new followers that, when I look at their profiles, have been around a while but no hubs published. Have also seen some hubs on the Hopper which are purely ads.
This is really a good question, and even though reasons for this are mentioned in the "FAQ" section of the hub pages, we never find out why certain individual hubbers are banned. I've seen this happen on multiple occasions, but one hubber has always been stuck in my mind for being banned. They were here for two years, and always left some of the nicest and most polite comments that I've ever seen. They had lots of hubs and they were very active, and all of a sudden one day they were banned out of the blue. I still don't understand what happened, and I probably never will.
Of those three new followers, did they have profile photos, or did they have that ambiguous silhouette of a man in a hat? Just curious.
With civil rights being tampered with, I, too, have a concern about banning. But in my less than informed opinion of this issue, my sense is that those of us who are compliant with the HP rules and are good neighbors to our peers have nothing to worry about.
So keep on Hubbing away, tillsontitan! Aloha, and have a great weekend!
That is weird and kind of upsetting. A forum is a place to voice your opinion in a civilized manner. Maybe something was not liked or they did something sneaky.
Maybe they violated the rules several times or maybe they were rude to some hubbers,so they flagged them.

Am I the only one who sees this different look? Is this a phone AP of some sort? http://stellarwoman79.hubpages.com/hub/ … nt-8036879 ...

I found out that today is 22 months since I signed up for HP! I am on and off here, with a variety of stuff, and not really consistent. I wonder if I can make 100 hubs, and 300 followers by the time I'll make 2 years here.

I dunno what is up with HP this last week with followers?I have found at the very least 6 people, in the last 2 days, that I KNOW that I was following and found that I was not. Did they mess something up with the burp on stats or did they reset something? I am starting to go to peoples names...

First problem seems to be that I have no adsense ads on this hub in a couple of days Second problem that is bugging me is that I got what seemed to be some spam comment that I denied that went along the lines of "thanks for the ads" from a hubber I didn't recognize (unfortunately I hit...
