A bit of a moral dilemma here...
I am trying to bust a scam, by showing that a company, which is a suspected scammer, is NOT actually at the address that they claim to reside at, because that address is shared by at least three other companies (the exact same address, no suite or room number at all). I provided links to all three.
One of the three companies I linked to (only to demonstrate the address, as I linked straight to the "about us" page containing the address) was an online casino company, and as a result, my published hub was unpublished and bounced.
I've taken out the link, and republished the hub. However, is the rules a bit too tight in this case? Or should I trust that the other two links would be sufficient to illustrate my point?
The hub was taken down due to the link to a gambling site. Our terms of service strictly prohibit those links. The content outside of that link was not in violation of our rules at the time of review.
It shows that none of your hub is published. Have you actually re-published the hub?
If there are three companies, they must have three web sites. If you point to three different sites it will not going to be banned. There may be some other reason.
Hubpages do not unpublish or delete a hub without giving a notice to the concerned hubber.
Please check again.
its an adsense rule, no online gambling, There is no leeway.
You could use an image instead or explain that you do not want to give the scammer anymore exposure by linking to their website.
Personally, I would go with a screenshot of the about us page.
Thanks for the idea. Actually, the casino site is NOT the scammer. However, they seem to share the same PHYSICAL address with the scammer, and two other companies. Which respectable company would share the same address without even a suite or unit number to separate them (which was the point I was trying to make)
Thanks for your intervention.

I was hoping to open a second Hub Pages account for "other" writings. I have tried to do this, but getting a message that I need to use a different email account. Is there any way to open a second Hub Pages account under the same email address? Thanks.

I have not received any email notifications from HubPages since yesterday, March 9th, just before noon. Has anyone else had this problem? I will retype my email address and check my junk folder.
