    HubPages was actually started BEFORE the internet was invented. Unfortunately it proved to be too impractical to get HubScore to work properly with the cork board and thumbtacked notes.

    New adult filter.

    HubPages have introduced a new way of stopping adult content at the source.

    One of these little guys will be installed in every members keyboard and the first sign of naked naughty bits, he pops up and goes "Hey! None of that sort of stuff here!".

    Question: Can I make a hub on gambling?

    Answer: Even though since early childhood the key HubPage staff members have enjoyed a game of poker, they know when to separate business from pleasure. So hubs that promote or link to sites that offer or promote gambling for money are not allowed.

        I posted this one "A profitable untapped niche. Making $$$$!" and after starting a thread it pushes you into the category of the sub-forum: http://hubpages.com/forum/category/2954 and I noticed the only other one there was one I had written 9 months ago.

        Then I remembered a few old fun ones. I went for a trip down memory lane and found this one and Smilies for Mark.
