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.
Why would you think that?
I for one ,wouldnt want to read anything that was obscene,racist or objectionable so perhaps it is the content that is important for a writer and reader alike.
Let me ask you this question.
How many books for sale or selling well can be found in a bookstore ,are Obscene,Racist,or Objectionable? Not many ,if any.
Because of First Amendment rights, you will find many such writings that may be considered racist, obscene or objectionable to somebody in bookstores, even in the public library. It's also a matter of perception; what's racist, obscene or objectionable is relative.
The Internet doesn't technically exist solely within the US, so it's not subject to all of its laws. If the proprietors of a website don't want any objectionable content, they can ban it from appearing there. Plus, this site works closely with AdSense, who have their own set of standards.
