Okay- I'm about tired of this. Hub Hopping today and 4 sex hubs came through. 2 for escort services including phne #'s, one about sex toys with every other word as vibrator and anal sex, and one with sex photos and a link to escort. How is it that these Hubs are getting approved? I flagged each of them, but I thought Hubpages prevented such when creating?
hubpages reviews hubs after being published, some nonsense use the freedom and publish those garbage. I flagged almost 10 of those today. But don't worry hubpages quickly short out those profile and snatch away the freedom of those profile to publish before being reviewed. they are penalized all the time.
If you find hubs like that which you made reference to, then just flag them and move on. Don't get upset, it's part of our duty as members, to help out HubPages Staff, in order to keep the community standard for hubs UP where it should be.
(a)Flag hub, even flag profile for that matter
(b)Move on to the next.
If they can't keep it clean, they won't be around long. Also if they aren't clean then adsense will avoid them. It is ok to mention the word sex, but it is not ok to abuse the system.
perhaps you should focus on your own writing and leave the application of the rules to the people who are paid to do so
without our help it will be too much to do for the hubpages team. Our flagging quickly take those hubs to their notice and that results into quick initiatives taken
The most efficient way of dealing with that sort of thing is to flag the profile.
This doesn't include hubs on legitimate sexual subjects, does it? I was thinking of doing some sexual dysfunction hubs, since I work with women with sexual dysfunction.
Some discussions will be ok for hubpages but not ok for adsense. So if you want both you need to be careful. I even had a page that was temporarily banned from adsense because of the amazon products, lol. I took them away and everything was fine.

EDIT: Oops I didn't see this had been posted below!
actually I like flagging them [escort hubs] hot off the press! there's no reason to be upset about it. they're eliminated faster once they're flagged.
I'm sure that the call girl hubs are responsible for some of this angst. I've flagged the hubs and profile and I'm sure many others have as well. They'll be gone soon.
And yes, Amie Warren, this could include some legitimate hubs as well that aren't purient. Adsense-based websites aren't the best place to try to write about sex, in any manner. Adsense just doesn't like adult content, whether it's educational or not. Some hubbers have been frustrated by the adsense requirements when they've tried to write educational hubs.
If I were you, I'd write one and then ask the Hubpages team for a review prior to publishing. They're happy to do this and you could get a good handle on the limitations.

What pisses me off about them is that they never include decent photos.
I'm surprised that they are getting past the adsense content filters though? Usually if a flag is put on a hub for disabled ads you have to unpublish it - I wrote a very innocuous hub on the discovery of a new species of prehistoric man and it has been flagged as ads disabled for some reason - no adult content or anything? Had to unpublish until the Hubpages team can look at it.
Flag the hubs, flag the profiles and leave it behind, because they aren't worth getting upset over.
I went Hub hopping this morning and flagged no less than 20 "adult escort" hubs grrrrrrr and yet I am not allowed to post tastefully done mild erotica stories that i wrote per Hub rules. Wonder what would happen if i tried? Get Flagged, ruin my reputation? Have to stand in the corner for a while?
I doubt flagging profile works because i have spotted few profile posting plagiarized content. Reporting them didn't work for me.
I don't condone the escort hubs or any other regarding call girls or sex toys. I don't search them out, but I am not a self righteous elitist, thinking my morals or beliefs are superior to anyone else's. Live and let live. Ignore those that trouble you and they will soon go away.
Your guaranteed to find some nonsense hubs when hub hopping, if your looking to find great hubers you'll meet loads in forum!

Ok I am at my end! I seem to be having an issue with HP. Everytime I flag something I end up getting flagged. Yesterday I published my 2nd part in a 3 part series on Jeffrey Dahmer. Ads were taken and I was fine with that considering he killed people, even though I see plenty of serial killer hubs...

Do you often flag content on HubPages?I see a few hubs everyday that are in English, but poorly written. I hate to flag a hub if someone is just trying to start on HP, but I don't like reading poorly written hubs! What are your thoughts?

When I hub hop I like to take hubs that look fishy and check to see if they are copied content. This week I have found 8 hubs that were in whole or part copied directly from another page. Anyone have me beat?
by Sara Frenki 10 years ago
I can see a lot of hubs on the same subject that I am writing about and they haven't been flagged as adult content. There are hubs on sex and male enlargement, so why is mine being flagged, at first I was flagged for overly promotion and I fixed that, now another flag for adult content??? COMMON! I...
