    I was over in "Hopping Some Hubs" which I like to do when I have some time. I voted one down because I thought it obscene. Not only the Hub was obscene, but the photos on it were too.  I probably should have let it go at that, but I commented on the Hub itself that I thought it obsecene.  Bet I'm going to make someone mad at me! Aren't we supposed to write for "general audiences"?

      No - you are supposed to flag the hub to alert the moderators to close it

      recommend1 is right - flag it.  This won't hurt anything if nothing is wrong as all it does is raise a flag for a real person from HP to take a look at it.

      No, we don't really have to write for "general audiences", but we certainly can't write for the "adult" section either.

        I did flag it, with the comment that I thought it obscene.  The moderators can decide for sure.

      If it was truly obscene, they will find it eventually and remove it.  Glad you made your feeling know to the writer!

          I say flag it and forget it!

          Anything that breaks the rules should be flagged. HP is for general audiences. I am certainly not afraid to flag.

      No, it wasn't yours! I was so disgusted, I can't even remember the name of the person who wrote it.
