    I wrote a hub recently that was pulled. I'm not 100% sure why but it looks like they didn't like the name. It included the word screw.

    Now while I'm not excited about puritanical censorship I'm willing to accept that if it is the real reason but then I do a little searching and come across numerous hubs using the same term in the same manner.

      That Hub was not moderated for the use of the word "screw."  It was moderated repeatedly for irrelevant tags, as I explained in your other thread.

        no you didn't explain that at all. You threw out the words irrelevant tags with regard to my hubs. you never explained which particular hub you were referring to. The original message was the standard one that includes inappropriate language. Now that it has been marked irrevocable it says deceptive tags. So which one of the tags is deceptive?
            child support
            divorce lawyer
            round rock divorce lawyer
        only one of those I can see as not being fully appropriate would be friends. Everything else is appropriate as far as I can tell.

          I am probably showing my own complete lack if understanding here, but each tag is a feed. I am assuming your hub is about relationship breakups, so if it was my hub I'd ditch husband, because that is going to pull in all the happy happy stuff and thus is not truly relevant to divorce.

          Ex-husband may be more appropriate.

          Try to see how each tag stands on its own. When you add it, it is also a feed, are the feeds related to your hub? (click on the blue hyperlink to see).

          Relationships, friends, dating as individual words may relate to your hub, but maybe its just me, but I wouldn't add them.
          if your hub is about separating, breaking up, add those words, I don't think tags are limited to one word descriptions.

          Someone slap me if I am wrong here.

          You said another Hub had been pulled, I referred to that Hub.  I'm sorry if I incorrectly assumed you would associate the two.  I did also clearly state which tags were causing an issue, as you can see here.

            I saw your original post and went in and tried to remove the tags. I think I missed friends as that one clearly doesn't belong.

            I incorrectly assumed that if they were suggested I should take them. I'm not doing that anymore.
