Flagging Nonsense Articles
If an article is total nonsense should it be flagged? Presumably articles on HubPages should be as factually correct as possible. I have flagged several nonsense pseudoscience articles today on the subject of electrical generators which can provide everlasting free power. Or are these articles just as valid as those on astrology?
If you have concerns, then flag - report- the hubs. Moderators will then make the decision on whether the content is suitable. You're just bringing it to their attention.
Its up to you to decide whether or not to flag those nonsense article but it may affect your hubscore. I tried 2x and my hubscore dropped. So, i usually bypass those nonsense articles or vote down.
I'm glad you asked this question. I flag Hubs that are very short, not necessarily nonsense, and I'm never sure if I should. Tonight I think I flagged 50% of those I read. I feel bad flagging so many, but I feel like they are substandard.

Can you use hubs that have originally been posted on Hubpages on other sites?

If we flag a hub, does it say which hubber put in the flag, or is it anonymous. I mean, could someone turn around and flag your hub to retaliate? How does it work exactly? Thanks.
