"Question Removed by Moderator?"

    I asked a question of a new Hubber regarding growing wine in his part of the country and it was removed.  Is this because the query concerned alcohol?  Danged strict, if that's the case-but what else could it be?
    Thanks.

      Maybe it was perceived wrong from how you worded it lorlie6...Like: " Did you grow up whining in your part of the country?'...That's borderline..."iffy"...right there...lol lol lol !

      When the question "flag" is clicked, here are the options shown:

      Adult - Sexually explicit content

      Spam - An advertisement or an overly self-serving request

      Low Quality - The question is nonsensical, calls for very short answers, or is not likely to be of general interest

      Miscategorized - This request has been assigned to an inappropriate category

      Other - Violates the HubPages Terms of Use in a way other than those listed above


      Just taking a wild guess, I'd go with "low quality" vs it had something to do with alcohol.

        Low quality? But we have so many of those types of threads. big_smile What's one more?

    Hey girl!

    Man I hate that when they close a thread down, or remove a question. 

    Good luck in finding out the why's and why nots.

    wow - that's an odd one, Lorlie - I bet it was a mistake or something.  did you email team@hubpages.com? 

    oh, and did you miss me?  I feel kind of like I belong to the "banned" club now - but I was naughty.  all my own fault.  will never never do it again.

    mega1...I can't believe that you got banned...Welcome Back. Anything happen in Forums while you were away? (Probably not...)

    Maybe they read weed instead of wine?

    I thought wine was okday but whiskey wasn't as far as adsense. I'd have to check again. But sheesh, with the sex stuff that they allow in the forums, I can't believe that they were worried about the adsense TOS.

    Oh if you asked a question, perhaps they were afraid it would lead to a hub.

    Okay I went back to the adsense content guidelines. Here's the  whole thing -
    Sites with Google ads may not include or link to:

    Pornography, adult or mature content
    Violent content
    Content related to racial intolerance or advocacy against any individual, group or organisation
    Excessive profanity
    Hacking/cracking content
    Gambling or casino-related content
    Illicit drugs and drug paraphernalia content
    Sales of beer or hard alcohol
    Sales of tobacco or tobacco-related products
    Sales of prescription drugs
    Sales of weapons or ammunition (e.g. firearms, firearm components, fighting knives, stun guns)
    Sales of products that are replicas or imitations of designer goods
    Sales or distribution of coursework or student essays
    Content regarding programs which compensate users for clicking ads or offers, performing searches, surfing websites or reading emails
    Any other content that is illegal, promotes illegal activity or infringes on the legal rights of others

    See it says beer or hard alcohol. So I believe wine is okey dokey. So don't have a clue why your question was deleted.

    Sorry for the rambling response.

      Rambling's good for the soul, my friend-and that really wasn't a ramble at all! wink

    Well, here it is, verbatim:
    "I've heard there are some amazing wines coming out of your neck of the woods. True?"
    I asked it of a new hubber who's from North Carolina.  That's all.
    But anyhoo-thanks, you wonderful people, for responding to this-I didn't write the HP staff...thought I'd come to a jury of my peers first-and mighty glad I did! smile

      THAT was shut down by a mod? Please contact them and find out why. Given what I see being asked and answered in the part of HP, I can't imagine why it was.

      I'd be very interested in knowing why. Please report back when you here something from HP command central.

        I will, Nelle-in his bio he mentioned the vineyards there, so silly me thought it would be a welcoming sort of question.  Thing is, I've got that little 'e' next to my avatar as a HubGreeter-which is actually very interesting and fun, but it seems there are some rules I don't yet know.

        Command central replied promptly-and fairly, I think.  I did not understand that these questions are 'public.'  I thought the question would be to that specific Hubber.  Apparently someone flagged it as low quality as well.
        The moderator suggested I word it more specifically-North Carolina and it's wines.

          Ayup.  This happens all the time.  That link is very misleading.  Needs fixing.

              No, the "ask whoever a question" link.
