    Last 2 days I've reported 3 obvious spammers. One saying "I'm from China", they post in completely unrelated topics too..

    What the heck!

    In all the time I have been here, we have spammers posting on the forums at all times of day and on unrelated topics.
    It's the nature of the internet, just report it as spam and move on.

      I'll have to call that common sense.

      I am very aware of this. I've been posting on forums for 7-8 years.  Along with the fact that there are not nearly as many people posting. Also 2 of those 3 spammers had just joined. Problem in my books, also an easy fix.

      It is not normal for here either way you look at it. Or at least shouldn't be.

      Good advice. I report all spam, and if they do nothing but spam, I flag/ leave a report on their profile.
      My hope is it will save hubpages some time if I report the profile.

    There are also those that will "spam" across many forum threads. Somehow they think by hiding their spam inside others posts that they get away with it. And they will if not reported.

    One way I have noticed this is when you see an unfamiliar username with rapid posting. After seeing two posts of spam in a row, check their hubtivity on their profile page and you can find what they are doing.

    Of course, no hubs will be present. Then I flag the profile started just to spam. Always add a message to the report to help the moderator know why you flagged the profile.
