What and who determines why a hub isn't published? I thought all hubs that were obscene, racist, or objectionable in some way would be published here.

To the HubPages staff, I have received ugly and obscene comments emailed to me via HubPagesby a new hubber. To report them to HubPages do I need to do more than click on the abuse link at the bottom of the emails?
