I have a hub on opensource software, which is apparently not ok as it relates to free downloads. I thought that was part of the community spirit of the internet? Anyway, didnt know it was not permissable. Is there a way of re writing so it can still be written, but from a different perspective?
Are you sure it's not just in a saturated topic?
Is there an actual warning on your hub?
Saturated topics will have a warning such as "This hub is about MLM" or "This hub is about forex". It doesn't mean they're going to be unpublished, it just means they're held to a higher editorial standard and you can't post affiliate links in them.
We have detected that this Hub may be about free downloads. Consequently, we will not permit any affiliate links in this Hub. Furthermore, this Hub must be approved by a moderator prior to re-publication. Hubs written on this topic must also be informative and of exceptional quality.
If you feel that your Hub is not, in fact, about free downloads, then please contact the HubPages Team and we will consider removing these restrictions.

I am pretty sure there are no affiliate links. Ill have to check it properly. Ive also found a great social network software that looks brilliant that I want to learn to use.
This is a normal warning that actually means absolutely nothing. Any hub written in a saturated topic has this warning. Unless you're a spammer, ignore it.
