Unfortunately I have to start yet another thread, because Jason has again closed my thread to reply.
The RSS feed on this Hub is to my own domain:
The links in the feed are not affiliate links, they are links to posts on my blog.
Each post does have an Amazon ad displayed on it. Could that be what is causing the filter to identify them as "affiliate links"? If so, that needs to be clarified - not just for me but for other Hubbers. I'm sure I'm not the only one who has affiliate ads on some of their blog posts.
And Jason, the fact that you close my threads is confusing me. Haven't you noticed that I'm still here, that I haven't removed my Hubs, and that I'm conscientiously editing my Hubs to bring them into compliance?
Yes, I do feel some things post-Panda have been badly handled and I'm going to say what I think, because I feel the HP team needs to stop closing their eyes to the reaction they're causing - but if you look on other threads, I've also been standing up for HubPages and asking people not to throw the baby out with the bathwater.
Threads are normally only closed when things get out of hand - closing them just because you think you've answered the question, without waiting for feedback from the OP, is rude.If you're going to start being rude to Hubbers who are on your side, you're not going to help matters.
The bellydancingdvdivas links are considered affiliate links.
If you need further clarification about this, please contact team@. The forums aren't going to be able to provide you with any additional clarity on the matter.

Because I had stupidly not read all of the fine print in the Helium user agreement I now cannot delete that article from their site in spite of the fact that I have no desire to be active there...

Can someone please clarify Photo attribution?I use a lot of photos from a free stock images site. From what I can tell, they only require one link on the page if you use multiple images from their site, although they want specific credit to the photographers of each photo.From what I can tell from...

My understanding was that we are allowed to put affiliate links in our Hubs occasionally, if they add value for the reader and if they're to reputable sites. Has that changed?I have just had an affiliate link snipped when my Flamenco Shawl article was moved to Hobbylark. There are...

Clarify please.I just want to get this straight. Are we voting DOWN responses to questions, that are actually weak; or are we simply voting down answers we disagree with?

There are a lot of us who haven't been feeling safe on the forums. They've felt stalked, harassed and browbeaten.Sadly, some folks go with the letter of the law, but not the spirit of it in their posts.For an excellent post on why we need Forum Moderators, check out what Makingamark says here...
