Was I slapped down? Tried to post and a picture of a strange woman appeared wearing a badge and riding some sort of motorized vehicle saying I wasn't allowed to post.
Whatever it was, it wasn't your offer to hug Pcunix that did you in. That post is still there.
The use of the words "idiot" and "moron" I think are the top two terms that get people in trouble around here. If you didn't use either of those, you won't be the first person left wondering why.
24 hours is a very gentle tap. Some guy got 4 months; I can only imagine what he said to get that. Not to mention those permanent bans I've heard about.
I got banned once for giving a compliment.. I didn't phrase it well, it was interpreted as an insult and poof! I was gone..
Oh, and I think that's a Segway she is riding.,
So I was banned from posting for 24 hours, I sent an email and asked why? I was told I was banned for self promotion. I sent another email and asked to be directed to my supposed self promotion, this is what I received back.

Has this ever happened to anyone else? Are hubpages staff members posting in the forums as sock-puppets and when they don't like what you say they ban you? I'm just wondering not accusing. By the way, it took 4 days for them to answer.

There is a lot of anger and/or frustration relating to the 'pending' system and most of it is down to the fact that it's not clear why there are exceptions - this is justified and there should be open-ness. (Note this only is aimed at new hubs, not hubs that become un-featured later)One way to do...

Yesterday I read a thread that pointed out an HP term pertaining to self promotion. At a quick read over it seemed to suggest that self promotion is banned here. Does this mean social media too or what does it exactly mean...? I read the page the link went to and didn't fully...

First a disclaimer is in order.I broke the evergreen rule with this approach. I knew it going in and did it anyway. What the hell, sometimes rules are made to be broken. Sometimes a gamble pays off, often it doesn't. I do live in Las Vegas though so it is in my blood! Hubs should be on evergreen...
