    I was just checking the requests page, and I noticed repeated request postings, all exactly the same, promoting some website.  I flagged them.  This is the link to their page.

    I figured I should point it out, so it can get taken care of.  Each time I flag a request, I go back and there are more.

    I think Hubpages is based in California so it must still be early in the morning but I expect as soon as someone starts work they will be banned.

    Haha, what a schmo.  Hope it was worth all the work just for a day on Hub Pages.  Thanks for catching them in the act.  I've never flagged anyone before.  I ought to do it as training for my goal to one day make a citizen's arrest smile

      Or you could just do part time work as loss prevention. Trust me, it's fun.

        Haha, loss prevention.  Like being a repo-man?  I'd probably get shot.

          Sure, you could be a repo man or a bounty hunter. I was thinking like store security (which is what I did), but all those options will give you the same adrenaline rush.

            That's true, store security would be similar and fun I bet.  Although I think the laws are pretty strict for security guards.  I don't think you're allowed to tackle anyone, even if they are trying to shoplift.  That would take all the fun out of it smile

              Uh, you'd be surprised. I have quite a few scars on me from tackling guys (and girls). It didn't matter who they were, if they stole and tried to run or fight, I was in. And I never broke company protocol doing it.

              If you really want some wild, wild west LP action, join K-Mart. I never worked there (and that's the first and last hint anyone will get as to where I previously worked as I don't want anyone to know!), but I had friends who worked there, and boy, they'd do a ton of stuff that I would never dream of. For example, there was one guy who jumped in his car, followed the shoplifter to the bowling alley nearby, then detained him at the bowling alley!

              Crazy times. Stupid move by him if you ask me, but there are ways to be smart about it and still get your fair share of adrenaline.

      I made a citizens arrest in NYC.  Guy breaking into a parked car.  Held him for the cops.  He went to trial and then to jail.  You can call me...SuperChris!

    I think more people flagging something gets it sorted quicker?

    My Dad made a citizen's arrest, once, on two lads breaking into an off-licence.
