    I just wanted to say goodbye to all you wonderful and beautiful people here on hubpages. After receiving a hubpages e-mail from HP staff regarding some crazy new policy. I felt it was probably a good time to move on and move forward to achieving new things.

    I am grateful to have met some wonderful people who are fantastic writers. I am also grateful to hubpages for allowing me to test out and learn new writing skills. I had three hubs that were on page one of Google for their categories.

    Although, I have not been around as much as I would have liked to read all the wonderful hubs that are here, I have to admit that I will miss the community.

    I wish you all the best in your futures. I am thankful that I had the privilege to follow and be followed by incredibly gifted and talented writers.

    Take Care and keep writing smile

    Sincerely yours,

      Thank you everyone for the well wishes.

      @IntimatEvolution Apparently they accused me of promoting some cheesy survey site on one of my hubs . The actual site that I had linked to was a top notch work at home site called
      ratrace rebellion which is definitely not an affiliate site or survey site in anyway.

      The funny thing is Hubpages used to advertise on that site for writers and maybe still does (I don't know) Oh well, I considered the e-mail to be an invitation to move on to bigger and brighter things.

      Take care everyone smile

        Whikat, I had a Hub unpublished for a prohibited link, and it turned out to be a mistake. The link was to a completely inoffensive website.  When I queried it, they agreed it was an error and  republished the Hub.

        Some of the moderators are fairly new and they are under pressure so there are bound to be errors sometimes.  It's frustrating that it takes so long to get an answer from team@HubPages, though. 

        I see you have no Hubs left, so it's a bit late to suggest you leave your Hubs published until you've found alternative homes for them, so you don't lose income.  That would certainly be my advice to anyone else who's thinking of doing the same.  Anyway, good luck.

        Seems like you've made the right choice. Hubpages is providing us with the right amount of motivation we need to move from here.

        Good bye and good luck Whikat!

    I am so sorry that you're going. Many hubbers seemed to be going or reduce coming in here.

    I hope it goes back to normal. Hang in there, we're all in this together.

    No need to run off Whikat!  We've all experienced the hassles of the policy changes.  Don't take it personally.  I've unpublished hubs and had dozens and dozens to have to revamp for various things.
