has now been marked as substandard (no warning, but actually marked). I've read all the rules a few times and I don't see why it was marked as such.
Please, because of all the people who want to write on HubPages, say exactly why this is the case.
I thought this place was about free speech (until offending someone, which I didn't do, but others did offend me).
This is copied from hubpages' "help," section.
My hub was flagged as substandard, what does that mean?
Substandard simply means that the quality of the hub does not live up to HubPages standards. Below are some common reasons that a hub may be flagged as substandard:
* "Test" or otherwise unfinished hubs
* Very little content
* Unoriginal or purely personal content
* Contributes nothing new in a heavily saturated topic
* Many broken links or links to low quality sites
* Links with deceptive or inaccurate link text
* Missing videos
I have highlighted the part that probably applies to you.
I wasn't having a dig at you earlier, I was trying to explain why you had those messages. As were a lot of other people.
The search engines will not "see" that little content. They are not my rules, nor are they my search engines.
You need more words than that to be acceptable quality content.
Why not put 50 poems on the same page?
But, please, read this - it's interesting.
None of my other Hubs that have the same amount of content were marked that way and they are displayed for many, many days (months, I guess). No problems at all with them.
The only Hub that was censored in a matter of hours was a Hub that is, only apparently, about another Hub writer (actually, it's about something completly different, and that's the message). As soon as I published that, the censorship came.
I believe in HubPages and I believe they will do the right thing in this, maybe, small matter (small things point to big things often).
p.s. Just one thing, please don't let me see all my Hubs marked this way after this message, that would truly be very... let's say, indicative.
I suggest you email me privately regarding the moderation of this hub, and with any additional concerns you have on this topic. You've now started several threads on the subject, and it's becoming redundant. There's nothing more for the community to gain by any more public discussion. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about the removal of your hub, and we'll deal with this matter between the two of us.
NOTE: If you start any more new threads on the subject, they will be removed.

The question of whether poetry Hubs should have 400-word minimums came up in this thread a few minutes ago:http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/70203#post1528809I've been puzzling about what to do with poetry Hubs I've found while hopping. I haven't flagged any of them, because poetry is a unique...

HubPages has this wonderful feature called Hub Hopping or Hub Hop to flag low-quality/copied/spam content. I know some hubbers do use this and help HP staff weed out the substandard content. Here's one more reason why everyone should 'hub hop.' I came across this thread on a Google...

Can someone please help me? I've seen some really sub quality hubs out here. I write well and yet my hubs are being unpublished and continuously picked on for sub quality. I'm offended. You're making it not fun to be a hubber. http://vivbounty.hubpages.com/hub/firew … -plus-help

I recall a thread where it was suggested HubPages use the word "non-compliant" instead of "substandard" in their email when a Hub is unpublished.I think that idea was adopted?I'd love to see the word "substandard" banished altogether from HubPages and replaced with the...
