Before you banned me, you haven't paid me for more than 100 articles

    I don't think he cares, Psyche.  He opened a new account, promptly made three different threads about this and left without answering any of the replies.

    Just wanted to spread his gripe around the community.  He had been around for a while before being banned and I'm sure he understood how payment works.  Got banned and now just stirring the pot.

    People come here thinking it is going to be easy, golden rule in life 'nothing is easy'..I spent 8 months putting effort into my hubs before I saw a monthly reward.

    Frank Sanello wrote OUTSTANDING historical hubs!  I'd be very interested in finding out why Frank was banned.  I never saw anything I would have ever thought would have been less than award worthy from Frank.

      This forum does not give a direct answer, but if you scan around it you can probably get a pretty good idea.

        Ugh, the super-sensitive filters are a huge annoyance - I have a health related hub that keeps informing me that I'm writing about "breast enhancement products" when I most definitely am not and a bunch of my hubs on domestic violence and LGBT issues have had the ads disabled. Better safe than sorry, I guess, but it's still obnoxious to be treated like a pornographer when you're writing for informational purposes, not titillation.

        I take it in stride, though - I have plenty of articles on other topics to make up for it. Based on the three threads this guy posted today (and Jason's comments in the one you just linked), it looks like he maybe was not so understanding about the fact that Google's the real prude, not HubPages. tongue

          Looked that way to me, too.  We can't be sure of course, but from that thread it looks like a continual effort to skirt the rules laid down by Adsense, which will of course affect HP.  Either play by the rules or get out.

          Now he just wants to stir things up by making everyone think HP has refused to pay him for something he hasn't earned.  Unlikely at best.

          Yeah, that's the idea I got from a mixture of Jason's comments and then this guy's apparent hot head from posting in the forums with a dupe account.

          My suggestion to the OP if he reads this is to publish somewhere that allows this content. While Google is the big prude, I DO recommend creating a blogger blog or publishing at other sites similar to HubPages after reviewing their TOS.

          I'm sure that people loved your content and that you will continue to make strides in your LBGT community. Just a word of advice: When something bad happens, just try to take it in stride. It makes the situation a lot better. If you're angry about something, just stop and breathe for a moment before reacting. And just relax. It's easy to get stressed out, but remember to stay strong, it'll not only be good for your own well-being, but it makes you look good (and it brings more validity to your opinions on your cause.)

          Don't let this be the end of the world and don't let it ruin your day. Take the lessons you've learned from HubPages and apply them in where you go next... and remember to take things in stride. Things can definitely suck, but getting angry and upset just makes it worse.

        Hey Thanks!  I got it.

    I'm not familiar with his writing. I wonder if he thinks HP pays for articles directly, as in purchasing them?

    1. melbel profile image94
      melbelposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Without HP having to approve them for purchase?
      If that were the case, I'd write some real junkers to get hubs out in minutes flat! Anyone want to hear about my breakfast this morning?

        Please, no, Melbel.  I've seen enough of that hub hopping.

        Although, come to think of, I haven't had breakfast yet this morning....

    I guess now he wants to be sued for libel...

    I don't know the circumstances but with these postings I'm starting to understand why he might have been banned.

    What I think he might be irritated about are the actual articles themselves. If they were deleted, he may not ever be able to get them back(for if he wanted to publish them elsewhere or whatever).

    If he's like me, he types his hubs right into the boxes, without first writing the articles out in Word or something. Then they're all lost.

    It's a real possibility that's what he's upset about.

      No, when you're banned, your Hubs are unpublished but still visible to you.

      We only permanently delete Hubs when either the user has deleted them themselves, or when they've asked us to permanently close their account.
