i made the request United States and Middle East. Who is the Hero who is the Villain and it was removed by the moderator. I have been reading hubs today by people who accused the US of meddling in Middle East affairs and another hub about Middle East causing problems for the US. Was it wrong to seek expert advice from people who specialized on this subject?
That request was not seeking "expert advice," but opinions. We specifically ask users not to submit requests for opinions, as these subjects are unlikely to yield evergreen content, and are better discussed in the forums.
I find this a bit confusing, to be honest. My own hubs (none of which have been marked as needing revision) generally are based on my personal opinions as are many other hubs. In addition, any request regarding religion can be considered as a request seeking opinions, rather than “expert advice”. Many requests are answered by hubbers who have the opinion, that they can provide “expert advice” where in fact they (and that includes me, mind you) present their personal views. So how is “expert advice” defined?
Maybe the request was too vague? You can email firstname.lastname@example.org and ask the moderator why your request was removed and how you could rephrase it.
I am not offended, and I've answered your question as to why the request was removed above. I've said before, and I'll say again, that moderation is nothing personal.
Yes Maddie. you are the most sweetest kind helpful impartial unbiased person i have seen so far in HUBPAGES.You have never did anything to go against me for personal reasons. i love you. cheers
I see you realized Maddie had answered your question, but I feel so weird being drug into this whole thing. All I was doing was saying ask her, and then my name was brought by Aswinspga. Please close this thread .
You are free to write Hubs about whatever you like, but the Request system is specifically designed to create the sort of Hub that will rank well in the search engines for a long time.
Basically, opinions don't.
A Hub about religion does not have to be opinion (for example, my Hubs on The Jedi Religion and The Church Of The Flying Spaghetti Monster are both researched from encyclopedias, Census data, Wikipedia, and other authoritative sources).
On the other hand, many people who genuinely try to make a case for a religious point fail completely to provide any evidence, which makes the whole screed an opinion piece.
The idea of making a request is that you have searched the Internet, and there is simply not enough good information available on the topic. The Hubber who makes the Hub will be filling a genuine need, and will therefore get search engine traffic, and we will all be better off.

I feel there should be a way to identify Hubbers who are experts in their field. Perhaps a voting system based on the best answers to questions or the ratings given to individual hubs. I am thinking about SEO in particular. There is a great deal misguided information being offered on the forums and...

Recently I'm noticing new members who have no hubs, no activity where they read or comment on hubs, and only join to participate in self interest and/or bleeding heart questions in various forums. Sort of using HP as a chatroom. Before anyone attacks me for this, please know I enjoy the discussion...
