Porn On Hub Pages

    Wag The Dogposted 7 years ago

    Is porn O.K. on hub pages?  I have seen some Hubpages that have nothing more than pictures.  Most of them from India.  What's that all about?  Nothing more than photos.  I don't get it.  But I found one that I thought was a bit over the top, and I was not sure if I should report it or not.  Here is the page: <link snipped; this hub has been taken down>

    Is porn O.K. on Hubpages?  Is this Hubpage quality?  Is it over the top?  Or am I a prude?

      If you ever see things that make you ask yourself these questions, it means you need to flag the hub so it's reported to admin and then let them make the final decision.

      That's what flagging a Hub is all about.

        Hubpages needs to kept clean because of Adsense - if Google disapproved HubPages for Adsense it would be a disaster for many. It's why I also have my own sites which I'm in full control of.

      I think that kind of hubs, can hardly be labeled as 'porn'
      I wonder if you know what porn is. Was there any kind of sexual act on the pics? If not it's not porn.
      There are a lot of porn sites on the net. Go there and see the difference.

      There is no porn on Hubpages.  They have lines you cannot cross.  I have learned this the hard way as I have had two bulk flaggings!
      Hubpages used to have adult content but now they no longer do.  Same with yahoo and a lot of other places
      It has nothing to do with morals per se it has to do with having to go through more work.
      Nothing here is over the top.  They only allow certain things and that is that.  No exposed obviously-female nipples--except maybe on statues--no fully exposed butts but thongs or edited pictures are passable.
      I don't know you so I don't know if you are a prude or not.
      Different strokes for different folks.  live and let live.  We all follow the rules with our hubs or they get flagged and pulled off the air.
      It's that simple.

      No, it is definitely NOT OK - and you don't have to be a prude to disallow certain things. Check out your FAQ, and look at the notices about what's allowed the next time you publish wink

      Some people manage to skirt the regulations, but anything that goes "over the top" as you said, should certainly be flagged.

      Some of the photography hubs (not the nudie ones, lol) have some beautiful pictures that were taken by the authors, and I don't have a problem with those.

      I must admit, though, that three kinds of hubs really set my teeth on edge - hubs containing only a bunch of other people's photos with no original content, hubs that merely list links to other people's hubs with no original content, and the almost-porn hubs

      sad

        Well, HP pulled the one I found, so it is safe to assume that it was "over the top."

        As for the word "porn,"  this is what I found when I googled  it...  "pornography: creative activity (writing or pictures or films etc.) of no literary or artistic value other than to stimulate sexual desire." 

        I would say that the photo that I saw, on that now removed hub, fell into that defininition.

        Not to be too graphic, but,the photo was of a young girl who  had one breast hanging out the front of her
        tank top,and her underwear pulled up between her legs to the point that it left nothing to the imagination.

        So, to a point, she was clothed.  That is the reason I questioned if it was over the top.

        Thanks for the backup red elf.  It seems that a few others are of the mind that anything goes...

          Okay, look, no one HERE works for HubPages so no one here has the expertise to flag anything.
          I made things quite clear in a hub i wrote on this topic.
          WE should not flag ANYTHING.
          WE do NOT get PAID to do that job.
          There are people who are trained to deal with this.
          obviously anyone who has to ask questions about this topic in this forum is NOT qualified to do the job the admin of HP is trained and paid to do.
          My name is Phoenix and . . . that's the bottom line.

            Wag The Dogposted 7 years agoin reply to this

            Phoenix, that is a good point.  So what your are saying is, that no matter how questionable an image or topic is, that none of us has the grey matter to determine if it qualifies to be flagged or removed, unless we are paid.  Therfore, I can be rest assured that nothing that should not be on hub pages, can be found on hubpages, because those who are paid to have the grey matter required to make the call, as to whether or not it should be there, have taken care of it prior to myself or my children finding it, on hubpages?  Well, I must say, they should just go ahead and remove all the "Flag This Page" buttons, because none of us are wise enough to use them and there is no reason for anyone to use one anyhow, because it is all taken care of by the paid pros.  Not to mention, they are taking up a great deal of prime advertising space.  And "that's the bottom line."

              If I  may interject.

              I can completely agree with the both of you.  You both make valid points.  Phoenix makes a good point that if you don't like an article, just don't read it, and it's true.  it's not our job to patrol and control the content on hubpages.  in fact, most of us aren't even getting paid for our efforts.  at least i'm still not. 

              however, you make a good point too wag the dog, because it is highly too accessible for kids to accidentally stumble upon pornography on this site.  As it is on other sites like myspace, which is why i like to believe it's lost a lot of popularity. 

              look, i think if hubpages found a way to put up an security page for porn related topics like asking a kid for a his age or asking for viewers to pay for it online via credit card or checking account, then I would be all for it.  especially since part of the credit card/checking account payment can go towards the hubber or at least part of it.   that would be a nifty solution.

              don't get me wrong, i'm not saying it should work like that for all hubs, just the ones that have a lot of adult content like nudity, sex, and whatnot along with other porn based topics.  however, i doubt that would ever happen, as im sure the folks at hubpages aren't going to go through all that trouble.  however, i hope they do as i think that would be a great idea.

                IF you check the TOS and other regs. you will see that they do not allow pornography or nudity here.  therefore, kids would not see it here.  They used to do adult content but not anymore.  As someone who has had over 2 dozen hubs flagged I can assure you that anything that we post in hubs that remains for any length of time is something that is technically not adult content/pornography/whatever.
                Are there things here that are on the fence?  Yes.  That's how it is in the outside world, too.
                people need to police their own children or not have them.  I have three kids and I know where they go online and when. 
                officially-speaking, HP no longer does TRUE adult content.

              wsp2469posted 7 years agoin reply to this

              First, let's not involve the children.  my kids only see what i want them to see and only go online supervised.
              So that is done.
              All I am saying is that--yes--in many cases some hubs have already been through the system.  In fact, the worst violators are put on a system that involves pre-approval of their hubs.  (This information is probably available somewhere within their terms actually.)
              Do people who do not work for HP have the ability to do the same job as admin.  In some cases they might.  In other cases, NO they do not.
              Do they have the same training?  No.  They do not.  Do these other people sometimes have their OWN agenda and therefore are NOT objective?  yes they DO and so NO they are NOT.
              I would have no trouble with removing those buttons.  They really do no good anyway if you flag one of the many hubs that has already been approved.

              It's D Self Righteous CHUTIYAS that float around here and on other sites who have all the free time on hand and nothing creative to do start believing 2 Be God when they get such powers.

              When a person who has never written a sentence or created anything beautiful gets power they go mad with rage and start flagging any and everything that makes them feel impotent. So allowing such people to flag others creative genius is like giving a monkey a razor.

              Now flagging a hub is one thing but using it as a veto power is quite another.

              I was on HP for two years had over 100 followers(99 still remain even though 0 hubs are visible) and over 200 hubs but it took just one frustrated jerk to see red and end result 2 years contribution went down the drain.

            Not to rain on your parade, Phoenix, but it IS up to all hubbers to flag hubs they find objectionable, and there are standards here - It's not just a case of laisser faire and the devil take the hind-most.
            It is however, up to the Hub Pages team (employees) to decide what to do about hubs that have been flagged.

              No agree with Phoenix, Why bother setting yourself up as a Censor, just gives the Dorks that want to play Heavy a tool to use.
              It should be up to Hubpages, bit like the Cops using the Public to do their work, which admittedly they do. However at end of the Day aint our say, that belongs to the Folk that run these pages, and yes it would free up further advertising space. Also frankly pornography does little to excite me, so I wonder if the people complaining the most are also enjoying the most. Oh of course before flagging, just a thought.

            So you're saying that if you saw an old lady being robbed, you'd just walk by, because saving her is what the cops are paid to do? 

            If you want to be part of the HubPages community, you have a responsibility to look after the community.  Kind of like Neighbourhood Watch.

            *************FLAGGING A HUB IS NOT MAKING A DECISION, IT'S JUST LETTING HUBPAGES KNOW YOU'RE CONCERNED********

            I don't know how many times that has to be said, to get it through people's heads.

            If HubPages had to employ enough staff to catch every rule-breaker, their costs would go up and they wouldn't be able to share as much of the revenue as they do. 

            And if we all stopped caring about people breaking Adsense rules, the site would fold and we'd all lose all our hard work.

              I agree with you on this marisa... I also want to add to wsp that if WE should NOT flag ANYTHING then maybe Hp should take the option to flag off... see heres the point WE do what we want when it comes to whether we flag someone or not that is why it is an option and I always try and do the right thing and if someone is posting garbage like that which isnt allowed obviously like that then someone needs to know about this... what if someones child were to get on here while their parent was in the restroom and they happened to click on someones pic and see stuff they shouldnt be lookin at all because the previous viewer didnt flag it because they felt it wasnt their "job" what a CROCK I get the feeling that people like to look at stuff like that garbage no matter where they are on the net and its sick... THERE ARE SITES FOR THAT SORT OF GARBAGE!! soon if we keep listening to EVERYONE who keeps objecting to this our entire net will be filled with this garbage. yea wheres the freedom in that to the ones who DONT want to see this sort of thing?? land of the free my butt!!!

                You need to read everything I have previously written.  For the most part, anyone who posts something that HP would actually consider against policy on a regular basis is put on a special program where their hubs need to be pre-approved BEFORE they are published.
                You can monitor your kids online.  if I want my kid to do something before I go to the bathroom I hold it and make sure it is done.  I am an adult not a child.
                What YOU think is "garbage" and what HP thinks is against policy may be two different things.  In fact, as we speak, the material in question was supposedly already changed.  Which means there was one picture--showing one bit of nipple--supposedly--and it was already edited to fit HP standards.  That's what the OP said in a previous post, at any rate.  Which means anyone who looks at anything NOW and calls it "garbage" is obviously NOT in agreement with HP.
                So what that means is, the people who get paid and trained to determine what does and does not belong here have already done their job and anyone who thinks there is still something there that does not belong is actually WRONG.

          That was a technical call.  had the actual nipple been covered it would NOT have been over the top.  So really it was a technical call.  I have had a lot of experience with this particular example.
          It's not that anything goes.  Read my hub on adult content.  You'll see.  TGhe trouble is HP used to do adult content and now they don't so they have these sometimes very--perhaps too broad and general guidelines and unless you ask questions you don't find out where the lines are drawn.
          technically you can take a picture of a girl who is squatting and totally naked and edit it by barely covering the nipples and the crotch (like a thong) and it will be legal.

      honestly no.  in fact, if you read the guidelines they give you before you publish each article, it says that nudity and pornography aren't allowed or is deeply discouraged.  i've seen certain hubs on here that came VERY close to crossing that line, but they always managed to cover up the naughty parts fairly  well.  point is it's not allowed.  if it was, then i'd probably publish a few articles on it, since pornography is one of the highest revenues in corporate america statistically, so i wouldn't mind increasing my traffic by writing about it.  however since that's not the case, then i'd advise against it.  you can get away with very alluring pics, and write about pornography if you like, but i would be VERY careful about what you say and what pics you used.

        I'm not sure why this dead thread was resurrected, but why do you say porn is within guidelines?  It's not.

        Pictures and videos of scantily clad women are allowed, so long as they're not nude. That's as far as it goes.  I doubt most people would call that porn. 

        In any case, when people join HubPages wanting to write about that kind of thing, they need to be aware that there's a very good chance they won't get an Adsense account or if they have one, they'll lose it - so it's a bit pointless.  Why be constantly wondering whether you're skating too close to the wind?  They'd be better off looking for a site where it's specifically allowed.

      I wouldn't report anything since you obviously have just admitted you do NOT know what porn is.  That would be silly.  Besides, as I understand it they PAY a couple people to do that.
      I admit I AM curious as to the name of the person who wrot ethe hub to which you refer AND what the hub concerned!
      Ok.  I AM nosy but I am NOT judgmental or close-minded!  LOL!

    Ok..point taken that porn sales...but this is content community site and not porn content..so is it hard for people to see that if you are in the thin ice,better turn back ? I see no point in viewing hubs like aunties, hot actress, hot celebs and etc etc... People just take that stuff out and better host somewhere else..your content is damaging rest of the other hubs.

    There is enough porn on the internet and enough places to go if you want to see nudity.

    Hubpages is way to classy and also has way too good of standings with Google to even think about letting porn on here.

    I know we are all adults and we can click away but the point is Hubpages is suppose to be about writing and I can guarantee no matter what you write on a page full of nudity no one will read it.

    Just my thoughts

    Cheers

    Do you consider this porn?

    http://hubpages.com/hub/A-Set-of-Pamela-Anderson-Photos

    Or this maybe?

    http://hubpages.com/hub/Beautiful-Women … s-part-two

    Or this possibly?

    http://hubpages.com/hub/A-Sexy-Eva-Mend … ion-Photos

    If you consider what the people in the pictures does for a living? and make a judgement based on that alone and not the content provided on the page?

    Then that would be wrong to do. And anyone reporting anyone else for having porn on their Hubs, when there is only pictures of women.....you are doing more harm and wasting a lot of time.

    Yours, HubPages and the person who posted the Hub.

    So, what's the point?

    HubPage does an excellent job and needs no real help from it's members, when it's PORN, because they are instantly flagged by HubPages internal staff.

    What HubPages highly recommends is that members be active in the forums and help cut down the garbage that gets posted. Like spam and nude pictures. If a person in a picture has Clothes on, regardless of how skimpy clothes are - they are not considered nudity. Nude is completely unclothed, as is porn.

    Please don't harm others, because things might not be as crystal clear to others, as you(a person) think?

    The TOS of HubPages is clear about it and it isn't for the members redefine HubPages TOS by their own standard. smile

    Hubs that are largely pictures used to annoy me too until I learned that your score has very little to do with your actual writing so don't stress about a girly pic poster having a higher score than you might.
    the score means nothing here because they throw in some many factors that have nothing to do with writing.  There are specific categories for this stuff.  if you don't like that kind of thing don't look at it and don't explore those categories.
    See how simple it is?  NOW we can all go and do actual hubs!

    Okay.
    permit me to get us back on track here.
    It's not so much about opinion as it is about not knowing what HP policies are.  It seems there was some confusion about that since the start of this forum.
    The policies are set with the sponors in mind.
    Then again, there is plenty of money in the porn industry so don't think Google and adsense are all high and mighty.
    They aren't.  they just went along with yahoo and a lot of other companies a few years back figuring it was to their advantage to eliminate the adult content portion of HP.
    (By the way, did you get that? There IS no adult content here any more as far as HP is concerned so this thread was stillborn from the start.)
    For the record, there are people who don't make any advertising income off of hubs so we DON'T all rely on Adsense.  I write.  I don't publish advertisements.  Thanks.
    Finally, although it was before my time, i did some old-fashioned real reporter-type investigating and found out that HP used to have a special section for adult content.  This might be one of the reasons why you still have to be 18 to post hubs here. 
    Nudity is no longer allowed BUT I promise you that if it was something they still allowed there are writers here who could easily use it to their advantage . . . and think how happy the ad whores would be since SEX sells (product so well)!
    I love HP, too, but don't kid yourselves.  If it was easier to still have adult content somewhere here--as opposed to dropping it--then you would see real porn and nudity on here.

    Oh yes, just so you all know, HP KNOWS that people who have no clue about the policies quite often hit the flag button.  that's why it does not automatically take a hub off the air.
    In a similar sense, you might see what you think is a robbery when in actuality it's a movie being filmed or a police sting of some sort. In this example, your interference would cause nothing but trouble.
    That is why your involvement in something that is not your field or job should be limited.
    I won't speak to the comment about HP hiring enough people to catch the rule breakers since I saw no evidence of this being researched.  No sense in arguing something that cannot be proved.
    I can, however, say from personal experience that nothing I do that accidentally crosses a line gets past them.  So maybe they DO have enough people working on staff.

    HP has it under control.  In fact, it was under control BEFORE my FIRST post here.
    That means everyone who posted AFTER my FIRST post was talking about some general, vague, unspecific "nothing".
    What the hell are you doing!?  Building a case for yourselves to help you get out of jury duty?  I'm sorry your honor but this candidate makes quick, general judgments with out even having seen any evidence or hearing both sides.

      It's interesting to see their personal bias bleed through so blatantly.

                  That is precisely my point.  Even he needed a phone booth, didnt he? That is what i mean.  Some things are just not done

                    lol lol Thats too funny. I said, when iIheard the story.."what difference did a phone booth make?!"...it was the kind that was all glass?!...I dunno...but I would have found a restroom, surely in a city with resturants on every corner a restroom could have been availabe, but oh well. What do I know? I am a girl...

            Well, I was just reacting to the title of the topic. I have not had look at those hubs so i do not really know if they were porno or some attractive girls.

              So why are you commenting that porn is polluting HP?

                you dont have to visit the hub, surely?  Someone asks a simple question about the existence of it here and you take it granted that it is there, don't you?  Do you have to probe first if it is there? I do not think so

                  If you read the first few posts, you would see the question truly was about one hub in particular, that has since been deleted. The actual question was...should this hub be reported or not...so, in this case, yes, you might have wanted to look into the hub first. I realize you thought the question was porn in general, but it actually wasn't.

                  Also, I would look into stuff really exisiting before getting upset about its existence. This IS the interent, sometimes things that are typed aren't true...

                  btw, porn is not allowed on HP.  smile

                  i never take for granted what other person thinks about something.
                  thinking sexy girls posing is porn is foolish.
                  I always check first,not only the proof, but what the person shows about him.
                  someone opening a thread to talk about another hubber who can't defend himself, doesn't look good to me.

        What you stated is useless on the Internet. There is NO WAY to verify ALL pictures ever taken, with her or her manager. The picture could have come from anywhere. There is no copyright on the picture and doesn't put HubPages in kind of trouble at all.

        Besides, it's FREE publicity for her. smile

    If you have any doubts as to the TOU agreement regarding what adult means: Read the following:
    Adult can mean:
    * Sexually explicit writing, including descriptions of sexual acts or practices
    * Nudity
    * Lewd or provocative images
    * Images containing the URL of sites with adult content
    * Excessive profanity, or profanity in the Hub title
    * Content on sexual aids, toys, or enhancements
    * Fetish content or content with sexual intent
    * Penis enlargement content or products
    * Links to sites with any of the above

    If anyone has anything like what is listed above in their hubs, then it is time to worry about having your hub flagged, and yes all of the above is considered porno, and it is not allowed. 
    If you try hard to stay within the rules then don't worry. You don't run a red light you won't get a ticket. If you stay within the guidelines, then you won't have to worry.

    lots of hubs with just pictures of scantily clad women, and some with very very young girls.  When I see them, I flag them and let the higher powers make the final decision.
