    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

    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. smile

    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...
