I came across this hub and almost fell out from shock! Is stuff like this really allowed on HP or should it be flagged a hundred time to get it off quicker?
I suppose it is not a pleasant topic for a hub but I don´t think it is a forbidden subject .
Why do you want it flagged? Which flag category do you think could be use!?
Well, if it is gone that quickly, I guess they agreed lol. Good idea to use the other catagory and explain, Dafla. That's one reason that I didn't flag it until I got other opinions as to if and how it should be done. It was pretty tacky if you ask me. I like the respectability of HP and stuff like that is a bit far fetched I think. IMHO
It's not gone.
Frankly, I don't see any serious problem with the hub - isn't this a part of our lives, may be less pleasurable usually, but as important as eating?
Hm. It isn't there when I try to look. Oh well, if it is gross, I guess I don't mind missing out.
It tells me the hub doesn't exist. Stacie, be glad you missed it! It was really sickening! LOL
I am glad. After the gross eyeball conversation I accidentally had to listen to at work today, I think I've surpassed my grossness level for the year.
Misha is correct. He changed the name of it and reposted it. Obviously just another passerby trying to see how gross he can be.
Misha, to answer your question, yes it is a part of our lives. However it is totally disguting what is in that hub. HP is a respectable site and if junk like this is allowed to take over, it won't be for long. THAT is why I wanted the hub flagged.
I think I used to have strong feelings about poops when I was younger, as most teens do, but taking part in caring for my older relatives and my kids eventually made me indifferent to that. It's just natural, you know.
And the guy definitely has a sense of humor - so I personally do not have any problem with the hub and don't mind it being around
Okay Bonnie.... I AM JUST SO CURIOUS!!! I don't wanna see the gross stuff by going under it but gotta know what is soo bad that the other hubbers won't say what it is about! IS IT ABOUT POO-POO Bonnie? If you can't answer hear... drop me a line.
PS Great comments given on my hub. I have more CHALLENGING ones coming up!
It's still there. Just replace the "**" in the URL Misha posted with "hi".
Did not see you on forums for a while. But I keep reading your hubs Everything ok?
I'm more offended by a couple of misspelled words :lol
I'm glad it was flagged. Everyone knows Hubbers don't poop or fart.
To all that has been offended,
I will be removing this hub only because I do not want any children reading it, I merely posted this hub for entertaining purposes.
Bonnie, my apologies....
For those of you that weren't offended, I'm glad you got a laugh out of it, sorry for the mis-spelled words. Again, its only for entertaining purposes.....
My Apologies to All,
I didn't find it offensive -- handled with humor and a little bit of an edge. And the title makes it very obvious what the hub is about -- if the title offends, then it's something to avoid. And at least there weren't any photos.
You might want to simply Unpublish it instead of Deleting it (there's still time to do that). It won't be visible to other people, but if you find somewhere else that you'd like to share it (like in an email to friends), you'll still have it accessible. It's up to you.

Open the Hub and Edit it. Click the Undelete button. Check the status. If it says Not Published, you're fine. If it says Published, then Edit it again and click the Unpublish button.
I appreciate your apology and it is accepted. I am all for a sense of humor and although this is just one hub, just imagine the kind of reputation HP would get if we started getting bombarded with these types of posts. It isn't so much the one hub, although I would definitely hate for a child to come across it. I am thinking in the wide range of it. I hope you can nderstand where I am coming from with my position. I, for one, would feel more comfortable promoting HP to my business people if it has the reputation of dignity that it now has. Thanks again for your apology and I am sure we all look forward to reading your hubs in the future.
Each time you edit it, change status and relook at it, that's a pageview.

Just gaging anyone else's earnings here. I just checked google adsense and I have earned 64 dollars in 18 months. I've only written 19 Hubs and most of them don't get any traffic. Any thoughts?

The question of whether poetry Hubs should have 400-word minimums came up in this thread a few minutes ago:http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/70203#post1528809I've been puzzling about what to do with poetry Hubs I've found while hopping. I haven't flagged any of them, because poetry is a unique...

I went to upload my first hub - and got stymied! Anyone else have a hard time starting?

I was hub hopping and had to flag a few hubs for being substandard (word count). One hub had exactly 10 words and 2 photos. There should be a way the system prevents you from publishing a hub like that except if it's in the poetry section.

I'm about to publish a hub. My goal with this hub is to promote the idea of writing for Mesothelioma Awareness day. I took out one link to cancer information already, but am still getting the warning.I think that this hub, without links to the information, would be silly. And I...
