Do you think, after the 'idled' option was introduced, many hubber's page views have gone down?
Yes, I do. Judging from the comments I've read, many people have lost views and income and are unhappy about the idles.
However, I personally think they're a good idea, even though I've been zapped by them a few times myself. This is a way of monitoring hubs to protect all of us from spammy, low level writing and in the end, and it will be awhile, I think it will really benefit HP.
However, the system they're using needs a little tweaking. That will come in time.
