What does count as spam?
Hi, I'm new here and i'm trying to publish my first hub. Now, I have scored 71 ( I guess that is a decent score, or at least not that bad for a first time), but the article was not published. As for why, the only clue that I have is this message that the moderator left for me:
"'This Hub is unpublished because it did not receive high enough ratings to meet HubPages' quality standards or because it contains spammy elements''
Disclaimer: the article is on a religious topic and it is fairly critical.
Spam is when you try to get money from tricking people to pay you. It must be something else if you didn't try to get money or posted a bad link. Read other peoples hubs and see what they all have in common as to they're way of saying things. No offensive material.
Usually you'll get the "spammy elements" if you are linking to untrusted sites.

I find quite often that when I publish an article one or two of the photos or text blocks are in a different place that the edited version. This is very frustrating. It's like the published article has to be edited all over again. Is there a reason for this?

Why are incomplete articles saved as drafts receiving page views? I would prefer to keep them private until I have finished writing them.

I'd submitted three articles to day but none of them, published. Why?
