    Does the "links" point to outside web sites?

    Something tells me hubpages have gone overboard and are flagging too many (non-spam) hubs as spam, and actual spam hubs are getting through because they're laundering their links in a black/grey hat manner. If someone has taken the time to create an article on a given subject they're entitled to have a few links out, hubpages are taking their cut on adsense - so I don't see their problem. The TOS aren't clear enough on this IMO and need to be updated! As a non spammer myself, with a hub flagged as spam, I'm inclined to think "what's the point!"

    I have edited my hubs and now they are running without any problem.I have included one or two links only per hub.

    It's still ridiculous. I build my hubs to be an information sharing resource with people, something they can bookmark because it provides easy access to information. My tv network hubs all have at least a dozen links in them -- all linking out to the same site -- and there's nothing spammy about it and nothing in it for me. They haven't been caught in the spam trap yet, but it would not surprise me if they ever do.

    If they do get flagged as spam, but you don't believe they are spam, you can request a review.

    Come on guys, hubpages isn't being "ridiculous" about this.  I'm willing to bet this process is getting rid of real spam.  It would be ridiculous if you didn't have the option of a review or to fix your hub.  It isn't like they are banning you for one "offense" whether it is valid or not.
