    Does anyone else feel a little let down with Hub pages?

    I like to post articles and other things on this site. I don't really care about the money (he types now showing that isn't really true). Adsence refuses to give me an account with no real reason why. I can't help but feel a little used by this site. I was writing a story that I would post in parts here, but now I am planing to write it longer and publish it on Amazon Publishing. I most likely won't make money but at least I will know why. Is anyone else feeling the same way.

    I'm sure that you will find people who feel let down in one way or another, sometimes even for reasons beyond the control of HP! For example, some of us will find that for our skill level, topics, etc. that we will earn much more elsewhere, even if we just created our own site. Whether this realization comes immediately or not, you may find some who are disappointed in that way yet you will also find others who earned less elsewhere for these exact reasons. I can complain about the differing headers depending upon where you're navigating to but that doesn't lessen the fact that I like HP.

    Each of us is very different and will have differing experiences here on HP dependent upon our specific interests, priorities and goals. For the most part, I think HP is a good place to be but each of us has different goals and priorities in life. At differing stages of life, these will change as well. It seems you feel disappointed, you just have to think about what your priorities, goals, and interests are and that will lead you to what you are happy with in anything.

      Thank you for answering.I don't think I would be disappointed if I didn't like the site. I also do't like the way people are being banned from Q&A for opinions that don't fit the norm (not PC). Angry people should be heard too.

      HC, don't you think that Adsence and HP should give a reason to anything they reject. HP doesn't give any meaningful feedback period. The bots and the moderation team just do things, and we can't even guess why they did these things.

      bradmasterOCal, good to see your comments. I wonder if it was because I had an article about gun control without saying guns are bad and people who want guns are nuts or evil? Not enough PC.

      Why should we have to wonder, and guess, when hp can spell it out. They will probably put me in another timeout because I even broach these issues. I think we need to know specifically what hp boundary we crossed and why.

      I agree with what ever HP does and would never want to do anything that would offend HP (wink and a nod and say no more) wink(they say a wink is just as as a nod to a blind person)
