It is about Honeyrose cigarettes so technically it is not about selling tobacco..but because it says tobacco related products including e-cigarettes I will un-publish it and rethink it. Any thoughts?
What's going on with Hubpages? I wrote a humourous Hub about a year ago on wine. No problems.
Now! I get a warning that 'This Hub apeares to be about alcohol" So what!
I've just read a version of your hub as it appeared on 9 Apr 2011 and it looks good to me. But you should probably ask HP about it.
Maybe you should give HP some feedback, it could be confusion.
I unpublished the Herbal cigarettes one, I didn't get a warning by email but it was in the black rectangle thing. I think it would be classed alongside the e-cigarettes tobacco related products... I imagine they are still harmful because people are inhaling smoke even if they are a method of gradually stopping the habit? and they are nicotine free
Just wishes HP would be more direct , and clear in the warnings. The vagueness of critique and needs for revision is frustrating .
Let me guess Ritchie, the hub warning said "This hub appears to be about tobacco".?
Well, give the dog a bone.
"No Smoking in Spain Law" and the other one that I simply cannot find at the moment, considering no-one ever reads it, is about giving up cigarettes, which is also about tobacco.
I don't think Adsense have banned the word tobacco, just the promotion of.
Like anyone writes a hub that says...try Golden Virginia, stay youthful forever" which of course you are when you die young from tobacco related illnesses.
Recently, I was told I could not sell products from Amazon that were in violation of HP's TOS or Google Adsense TOS.
I had some posters I was selling, with regards to Celebrities. However, since some of them displayed nudity or see-thru clothing, I was told if I didn't remove them, then the hub would be unpublished, and possibly lose my account.
Its bad that links to Amazon do this, I had one on a sexy xmas gift and I had to delete the Amazons. Id rather unpublish or delete to stay in tune with the rules though, they are for everyones safety.
I just wonder if Honeyrose cigarette Amazon capsules are against TOS?
Well, I wouldn't know.
Why not just chill out, open a bottle or two of vino, and wait for that warning email from HP.
If you're asking, I don't see a problem. Then again I never understood the problem with e-cigarettes either, except for the fact that they had NICOTINE in them. But hey isn't that what the smoker craved?
Well I'd rather unpublish it myself, this way I won't feel bummed when I think I'm progressing and then look one day and I'm back down a hub I sent an inquiry to HP anyway
You should not give in so easily - if your hub is not in violation then you should say so and get it un-little rectangled !
I have an original hub about an original subject with unique points of view in it - and I have been unpublished because a mod thinks it may be a spun article. As an editor I cannot see how anyone could come to that conclusion unless the mod objected to the content [possible] or it was a response to my criticisms of Hubpages team [possible].
Either way, I have an email in and expect it to be just republished without any explanation by the end of today if the 72 hours mentioned in the notice is a true statement.
If everyone just falls over and gives in when mistakes are made then the mods will not learn the lines between right and wrong.
I'm still waiting on a reply...Thing is I have a lot more to lose since if I get in trouble then I lose 253 hubs and all the earnings I get
HP could you be over reacting a couple of my upublish hubs are Hot whats going on please.
Well I tried to be a good hubber and asked them to review it for me and I kept it unpublished while they look but its been nearly 48 hours now since I emailed them and no response?
Yes Richie, it has been nearly 48 hours and NO emails are answered on the weekends, which covers your 48 hours.
Staff doesn't work 24/7 and some parts of HP is not address, unless it is Monday-Friday.
That's a good idea to let them have a look. As I understand it, mentioning tobacco is OK, but anything promoting tobacco use or e-cigarettes is not allowed.
The moderation team's current backlog is about a week currently but hopefully you'll get a reply sooner. They really are working around the clock, but the queue is long.
Thanks Jason, it is actually about smoking herbal cigarettes which isn't actually tobacco.
@Cags - thanks didn't know they were off weekends

When you publish a hub, it is normally listed under hub activity and a notification is sent via email to all interested parties. Now, when you unpublish that hub, finish re-editing and then republish it (keeping the original title intact), will it appear in the hub activity? Also, will...

One or two of my hubs have fallen victim to the "does not meet quality standards" empty bubble.In one case, I imagine it is because the hub falls under the "purely personal" category, better suited to a blog. That's fine. I can move it. (It's an older hub...

I have a few hubs that I wrote about 10 years ago when I first started writing on hubpages that are not very good. They are pretty thin on content and get little or no traffic now. Some of them have even been unpublished due to lack of traffic or for quality. I am not disputing that they are not...

I started a hub but I don't want to finish it. I would like to delete it so it doesn't lower my hubber score. Can anyone tell me how to delete a hub. Also do unpublished hubs affect my score? I have a hub that was seasonal so I unpublished it. My profile says I am a four year member but I...

I just posted a bit ago a request for help on a hub that has been flagged over promotional. I just realized nobody can see the hub in question since the hubpages staff said to unpublish. How do you get someone with experience to look it over and help with it if they can't see it? It has been...

I am just curious, all 92 hubs of mine are featured. In your opinion, should one delete (although Featured) any hubs where the score on a particular hub has eventually dropped way down from when it was initially high at one point? Or would it be better to just unpublish and later...
