In my opinion the individuals assigned to patrol and act as an over site-board, for the hub pages are narrow minded and self serving.
The gaggle like wash women hanging laundry and decry anything that does not fit into their political ideas of what is right and what is wrong.
Its a wonder they are able to negotiate common door ways and narrow passages, their collective heads are enlarged to such an exaggerated degree.
They have no compunction about deriding some hubpages members as if they were not in the room, and with the full support and consent of the hubpages administration, they carry out
their overly opinionated persecution of legitimate offerings.
Then change the rules of compliance to match their closed minded and self serving decisions.
The first amendment is dead here, if you are not resigned to telling others how to bake cakes, or do some other chore that should have been learned by age 11; your hub may be allowed but
since it does not create the revenue that instructional hubs do it is less appreciated.
I don't think it's a stretch to say you're bent out shape over something. The fact that hubpages present this article to it's members kind of says they can't be too strick.
However we all have issue we would probable like to air but in others eyes it might not be appropriate.
I don't know for sure but you might have a hard up hill battle with this argument for hubpages had been around for a while and there seems to me at least a number of hubbers that really love this site.
I take it you have had a hub removed for TOS violations?
If that is the case - I suggest writing it on your own site where there are no such restrictions. That is what I do.
I can't explain why people complain about their first amendment rights on a privately owned website.
Because they can? I don't know if that makes any sense.
Ditto. Hubpages has the right to legislate how their property will be used and by who. I suggest stop writing about $&^*$^&#@ and %$@*%&@. Maybe your hubs will survive.
Exactly. If your hub is moderated in a way you disagree with, email us. We will happily review the decision and inform you as to why we made it, or apologize if it was made in error and reverse it. Additionally, if your hub is moderated for having a certain violation, please flag any other hubs that you believe also violate these rules.
Yes, it does overlook a key piece of information.
However, I can say, nobody likes to be silenced by force; it is the sort of thing that creates emotional states like the one we are witnessing from the OP.
I don't know what the specifics are, but I understand the principles at work on both sides. This comes up a lot.
So far I think HP has kept a pretty fair balance between commercial enterprise and writing community all in all. I bet they go to bat for content from time to time. Considering the other options out there, HP staff provides us with a pretty nice buffer.
I imagine I'll change my mind if I get shut down someday, but for now, I'm appreciative of this place.
It seems HP's only restrictions parallel the Google AdSense TOS. They have every reason to protect that source of revenue.
Just this week, Squidoo rejected one of my articles. That would not have happened if I published it here.
It is simply an article about healthy weight loss. The entire point of it is to explain that you DON'T need a BS fad diet scheme.
But, as they said, there are so many spam articles about weight loss that they won't even consider it. Then they said, Besides, can't you think of something else to write about?
HP is open to the public but it is not public domain. Frankly, if a writer disagrees with the TOS, it is not that difficult to find another platform.
It's not a question of censorship, it's purely business.
Hey, nice job on the 100
I think its a great site for writers. I had no inkling we were being moderated at all. Thanks for the nice site you have here. I actually learned so much about the things readers like and will not like. Very very cool place to do casual market research.
I'm not a writer, I didn't know this was a site for writers. I'm just a guy that likes to chase Tea Baggers around the sites and give them the blues. When I jump onto this site; I was invited to write a hub. After I wrote my first one "it was over for me Baby" I was so proud of myself. I actually had trouble writing my name before I found Hubpages. I didn't know anything about writing to make money, I just wanted to say what a feel on Political issues. I have been allowed to say most of what I want to say. The Hubpages staff has been very patient and tolerant with me so far. And trust me...I've pushed them prerry far at times. Thank you. And this is a Privately owned site.
Would it be rude to point out that it is credibility?

About a month ago I wrote a Hub about pyramids, those big things in Egypt. It hasn't done nearly as well as I thought it would. I took a closer look at it today and it had a warning message on the top of it, that my Hub appears to be about pyramid schemes and may be moderated. No...

I have a recent hub and a new hub that I am having problems with a crazy person I know who is posting comments under various anon identities. Is there any possible way of blocking them from my account on HubPages? The best I can do at present is keep deleting their often very rude posts.

I am having issues with the hubpages staff. Yesterday I updated a hub that was published in 2009. And notice that I was not allow to resubmit it before it was reviewed. Then I tried to update another one and the same thing. I have since attempted to update a few more and...

I have just found that a 3 day old hub has been moderated as substandard and I am having difficulty understanding what needs to be addressed.None (in my view) of the 'common reasons' for moderation seem to fit.I have read the FAQ and Maddies hub about the issue but none of this helps. Before I...

By means of substandard quality? One of which has almost 700 views on it. These three hubs have been on here for over a year and are now being flagged although they generate comments and daily reads. I don't understand if they were good enough for the last year and a half and now aren't? Please...
