We are refugees and it feels right. We will migrate but we will carry that load.

So they wrote me the nice note:


This message is to bring to your attention the fact that your continued pattern of behavior is putting your HubPages account in danger of being permanently banned.

Any future forum violations will mean that you will lose your forum posting privileges permanently and could result in your account being permanently banned as well.

If you are unsure if something violates the site terms, then I would advise erring on the side of caution and not posting such content.

Matt @ Team HubPages

I reckon that makes me free. I reckon that my brand of writing is not welcome here.

So we are looking like the Grapes of Wrath and moving on. Oh for most this would mean some big deal. Not here not for the Dierker home. We will leave over 150 featured hubs when all is said and done. And we will still write here. I would love to be a drama queen, because that is fun. But that is not that around here.

It kind of is cool, who should we go to see and set up house with over 300 articles that already have a ton of views and comments? I suppose you just take your savings and move on.

I kind of want to do the big city life with blogs. But maybe the Zurcker life and some Google + and would the Beezlebub site be fun. And I already have a blog webpage set up and we will start migrating like immigrants from a foreign land. How exciting new beginnings are. It is really quite boring loading up the truck but what trinkets I have already found make it worth the time.

No good byes just a readjustment.

Mountains to climb and it might get ugly on the way.

Sometimes life moves you along

Smiles and goodness await every corner. Can you imagine the happiness of a homeless guy when you walk around the corner with a gallon of water and a blanket and he knows your name?

We share those moments, them and I and we grab on for dear life to them. A bump in the road means nothing to me, but might just as well bounce him right out of the truck bed. So we take them old bumps with some seriousness so that others do not suffer. We do not suffer from an attack of the "goods" we suffer from an attack of what we could have done.

Forgive me Father more for what I could have done and what I left undone than for mistakes I make in action. Those mistakes are on me but doing nothing is on my soul.

I thought that moving hubs would be a big problem. And I was right. The problem is that I like them all like children.

Do you like censorship for content?

Have you ever censored someone?

See results

Use a buzz word like terrorist or Nazi and see how fast you are banned.

Censor this for abuse of clothing and the word heaven! And Oh My Goodness -- cigarettes????

Well I'll be darned!

Time has passed and I am still here with over 250 featured hubs and more accolades. Seems it is just in the forums where whiny little self righteous blued haired ladies complain and the censors have affection for the complainers that the censorship rallies around here.

Good on HP.

Now I am only beginning to migrate the hubs HP does not like. I give it a good shot to make them conform but if not then that is fine. HP has a great editorial staff and machines. The trouble is that they are so big they cannot really accept nonconformity. Hey that is what other places are for. So we will continue to rent space here.

I heard of this new fangled idea where you have several places to write and you network and tie them together and have niches for different stuff. I hear it just came out in about 2003 and I thought I might give it a shot. It sounds really fun but time consuming. I suppose just like doing anything well.

I hope blessings are on you this hour.

For they are upon my home and my house and those I love.

It would be sad if this little boy were censored for making fun of Vietnamese.

Because he is one and that is his mom's hat.

      Very interesting notice on migration. And I understand the same about FB.

      You're quite right Eric, immigration is no big deal. All you have to do is change your email address. And then of course you will have to search for other sites. Alternatively, you could start your own site. If Facebook is going to lose 70% of its users by 2017, just think how many Hubpages is going to lose. They will have to go somewhere; a perfect opportunity for a talented writer to step in an take over.

      Thank you Victoria, you know I feel that you are a great writer for that wonderful way you make all matters part of life and not apart from it. You have me reading about the doggoned things and coming away being able to apply it in some way to my life. And as bonus I am learning more about my wife and how better to love her!
