    If I hit the "flag" button, will the Hubber of the Hub know it who flagged him or her?  Or is the flagger completely anomoyous?

    Hub staff, please let me know.  Thanks.

      No, they supply the flagged hubber with you home address and the phone number.

    I flag stuff all the time. smile

    What difference does it make if the hubber knows who flagged it?

    I mean, flagging only asks a moderator to view the hub for any violations that might have been perceived.

    If someone accidentally stepped over the rules, then I would think that they would be glad it was found? hmm

    Granted, there is a lot of stuff that can be flagged, but seriously, why should it matter. You're helping the community and the hubber. wink

      most answers here have assumed all hubbers have the best of intentions, and most probably do - but there are many hubs that are purely promotional, or copied entirely from other places, and being anon when flagging prevents retaliation

    Cagsil-- I agree I'd sooner have some tell em to fix it, than to be me... or rather no, I'd sooner improve BEFORE someone flagged me.

    As far as I know yes it is anonymous

      I have no problem with criticism on my hubs. If I have a bunch of things wrong with or if it violates some rule, and staff doesn't see it, then I would rather be protected.

      To me it's a win-win. wink

    It's completely anonymous. And it won't actually do anything - other than bring it to the staff's attention.

    Only a staff member can unpublish/ban or otherwise change a user or hub status.

    So you've got nothing to worry about. smile
