I need to report something to you and couldn't find an email address so am posting here-- I was doing a bit of hub hopping and in among the spam and low quality hubs that I flagged was this: http://hubpages.com/hub/Through-the-Eyes-of-a-Teen
I thought I ought to alert somebody because this is quite disturbing and clearly a cry for help. Please read it somebody on the staff, and let me know what you decide to do. I am at a loss myself-- often well meaning people like me can make things worse.
I really do try to flag and report inappropriate hubs as often as I can, but things like this are totally beyond my paygrade. Well meaning advice can be worse than none at all and, as with all things on the internet, whoknows if this is even real.
In any case, this is a totally inappropriate hub no matter how you look at it, but rather than flag it, I thought I would bring it to your attention via message.
help-- what to do now???
This hub you are refering to could have been written by a teen or by someone who knows how to speak like a teen. The format of this hub was written like one run on sentence after another after another. The emotions were authentic and realistic (that is one of its strengths.) The fact that the format of the way it is written makes it a poorly written style.
I just got through reading a book called "Torn Apart" by James Patterson in collaboration with Hal Friedman. It is written from the perspective of a young boy who has Tourette's Syndrome, and the way the boy expressed himself in this book was like any typical teen that is dealing with circumstances of the young. (You do certain things, and the consequences you have to live with.)
What any decent human being would do is to offer the Hubwriter wisdom, of how to solve his problems. There are plenty of hub writers that Have experience and Wisdom that may shed a light on the person who is giving their perspective in this hub you are concerned with.
We should support one on the real message given, and not just the content and the color of the language. I am going to pray for SammyBee13. The only thing I would flag him for would be grammatical errors, and his choice of language, although, if rewritten properly, the would-be offensive words could be in better context and acceptable.

Lately, I have had 11 hubs unfeatured due to Quality Issues. I have assured my hubs do not contain grammatical or spelling errors. I have included relevant video and changed the titles and added new supporting texts and all this to no avail. The HubPages Staff continues to deem my hubs do not...

Yesterday I invited a friend to try the hubpages. She declined stating that most of the staff are narcissistic head hunters who have a degree in English, play head games with the users they don't like, are unfair in carrying out their hub rules and often help the evil doers on the site if it means...

If you report or flag a hub or question, is it anonymous, or does the person know who did the reporting or flagging?It would be a shame to have a retribution war started....

Hello,I try not to make waves with "How Hubpages Operates" and I am not sure if this singular problem is having a huge effect or not.But, I've noticed that many hubs I had connected to other hubs via "embedded" links(anchored text) have not been coming up or being flagged as...
