There has been a lot of discussion recently about hubs with celebrity pics and adult content and many hubbers have different views on this subject.
In my opinion so long as hubs are keeping to the rules of the site nothing that we do or say about them is going to make a difference or change what people publish here.
If the rules of hubpages are not broken in anyway with these hubs then what gives anyone the right, hubbers or not, to criticise them.
If you dont like what you see then don't go back to that hub simple and effective there is even a thumbs down option if you think that the hub deserves it and you can leave a comment to the author too.
If a hub is breaking rules flag it for the moderators and they will deal with it asap.
There are many ways that you can show dissaproval of a particular hub and there are procedures to follow if you think a hub is breaking the rules.
Drawing attention to them just increases the hub stats because we hubbers are a curious lot and like to see what all of the fuss is about.
just my 2cents.......jimmy
I was thinking its high time some senior hubbers chipped in with their views in this regard. Well said, jimmy.
Hey jimmy I just noticed it was your 606th post. Before this you had the same number of hubs as forum posts !
I totally agree with you Jimmy.
I hope others read this too.
Brilliant, mate. Guns safely back in the holster. Perfectly said.
your 2 cents is worth a lot to me. Next time I see something that makes me wanna bite back, I'll just come back here.
LOL SunSeven, even if HP makes it sticky, we still have that same attempts over and over again.
This really reminds me of my 4-year old. Just recently he had a period when he wanted to be first. Everywhere. First to the car, first back home, first to the bath, etc., etc.
But he did not make a single effort to move faster. All his effort was spent on trying to prevent others from being first! Lots of nerves and crying, trust me.
He finally grasped the idea that he himself has to move fast to be first - but I think many people die still believing they can get ahead by pushing others back...

I have been hub hopping lately and I am disgusted with the incoherent garbage that I am coming across - nothing but poorly translated articles of about 400 words, usually without even any formatting. I would say that more than half of the articles I randomly encounter are clearly nothing but spun...

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 was curious if there any strict rules about critiquing another person's hubs. If everything is based on fact and what they have said in the hub and comments it doesn't fall under the label of slander does it. <snipped>Don't want to post a link if it's a violation of rules. [Another hubber]...

Happy Friday, Hubbers!Next week we will be raising the quality threshold for newly-published Hubs (meaning newly-Featured Hubs will, on the whole, be of higher quality) and will also be giving Featured Hubs (for those with high Hubber Scores) longer grace periods- up to a year for some.More...

So I'm replying to a comment on my hub and upon scrolling through the hub (I always check for errors or how I can improve), I see the related hubs section. There are five hubs there including one of mine. What immediately got my attention is that the other four hubs has "editors choice"...

I'd like to suggest we get rid of Hubber Score - and perhaps even Hub Scores. They:- are constantly misunderstood;- cause a lot of upset and grief in the forums; and- encourage newbie Hubbers to direct their efforts in entirely wrong directionsFor instance, I've known newbie Hubbers stop...
