I'm new here, and have been watching a user named Philgood put up over 70 spammy hubs since he joined 6 hours ago.
What's the best course of action here?
Are there automatic systems that discover and delete this sort of stuff, or does Hub Pages rely on users to report it?
Although I've only been here a short time, I'm starting to get a bit protective of Hub Pages.
How sad is that !!
We all get that way (protective) - email team@hubpages and let them know. Plus you can flag a few of his hubs. I guarantee he will be gone before the day is out
The best course of action always is to relax and enjoy
You can report the guy to firstname.lastname@example.org if you want the justice to work faster
Well, He's still there, but his hubs have disappeared. Shame about all that hard work going to waste wasn't it !!
Which gives me a thought . . .
His hubs were being made at the rate of one every 5-10 minutes.
Assuming that he was doing them manually, it would be a great trick if Hub Pages could leave them there - but only visible to his IP address.
This would mean that he would be spamming away - creating hubs that nobody else could see.
Might keep him busy for ages, and divert him from engaging in other spammy stuff.
On the other hand, he could just be an innocent victim of some guru's $1997 course that told him it was a good idea to make a lot of hubs.
You are evil.
Are you in anyway related to Mark Knowles?
I love the idea of a spammer beavering away creating tons of rubbish that nobody will ever see.

I seem to have picked up a nasty troller. This person has been a member of HP for 2 years, but has absolutely no featured Hubs or any Hubs at all on her page. Unfortunately she seems to have picked me to, well, pick on...

I just found out that this site is stealing our hubs and posting as its own blogposts! I mean they post our hubs EXACTLY as we have written them, with all the bullet points and the same photos, the same content...

For those who are no newbie to HUB Pages you probably share the same frustrations of working for hours on a hub only to be insulted with the friendly heads up message sending you back to a tutorial about writing rich...

I am afraid to put much info until I investigate further and take action. Check your own. The scraped one appears just below mine on page 1 for my keywords. At least it is not above mine. The culprit has Google+...

I think I know something about writing articles. I created a new hub yesterday. HubPages took 24 hours before declaring, in one of their mystery messages, that it was of sufficient quality. You know what? It was too...
