I received this email today that might explain why HP is getting a lot of spammy type hubs.
Just thought I'd share:-
Now, I’m not really much into the affiliate/JV game, but the other day I was emailed The $5 Traffic Trick. I don’t normally buy into these things, but for $5 my curiosity got the best of me and I couldn’t pass it up. Besides, one thing every webmaster/marketer needs is traffic…
Anyway, this is a quick read, maybe consisting of ten pages, but the meat and potatoes really comes out in a couple of those pages. I read through it, and what can I say, I’m a believer. I won’t give away the details here (although it mainly involves Squidoo and Hubpages), but if you’re looking for traffic, are willing to put in a few minutes of work, you definitely won’t be disappointed. It’s just one of those oft overlooked cool little ideas that can add up to big numbers if implemented properly.
It’s a thumbs up for The $5 Traffic Trick for me, and I can’t wait to get started implementing this idea!
I found a member today who has tons and tons of fake comments on his hubs. All of his hubs are spam, and almost everyone who commented had a fake i.d. with no hubs and no avatar. That must be what this is about.
I was going to report him, but my computer froze up (damned Firefox) and I couldn't find my way back there.

Is it just me? I usually gets quite a few notices of new hubs, although they've been showing up in my bulk folder. But I haven't gotten any at all in two or three days! Is no one publishing new hubs, or has my Yahoo...
