This article is about the pepper spray incident at UC Davis, California. It describes how pepper sprays come in various concentrations and why the pepper spray concentration was improperly applied in the faces of the protesters.
In fact, the article begins with "This article is not about weapons sales, nor does it encourage the use of concentrated pepper spray at all. The problem is more one of increasingly weapon laden law enforcement and civilians who are more inclined to use harmful weapons simply because they have them."
I don't know who or what concluded that the article was about "weapons sales", but I need to know if the article has been unpublished. There is nothing to change since the article is informative and is not a sales article.
I can't do much with words like "might" and "appears" and would like this to go away.
If you use the name of weapons, drugs, alcohol, gambling etc it triggers the warning. Manual checking should clear it....
The black triangle just means there is a broken link in the hub, nothing to do with a hub being unpublished.
Here was the confusion: there were two things: the claim that the hub might be about weapon sales PLUS a broken link! I fixed the link and the warning triangle is gone, but the article is still about the opposite of encouraging weapon sales.
Sounds like you got it sorted out, Xenonlit.
Isn't the HP community fabulously helpful?
As your post said, it was an "automatic warning", meaning not the human kind. The words "weapons sales" triggered it. A human can review and take into account "not" about weapons sales, and clear the hub.
I agree that the community is fabulously helpful and very quick with the help!

It is about Honeyrose cigarettes so technically it is not about selling tobacco..but because it says tobacco related products including e-cigarettes I will un-publish it and rethink it. Any thoughts?
