I like hopping because it let me see hubs I might have missed otherwise. I have seen so many "purely promotional hubs" (I am not talking about product reviews, either) How to you feel about flagging hubs?
I have a couple of topics that are more near and dear to my heart, and I tend to keep an eye on those, flagging not only substandard quality or overly-promotional things but also making sure hubs in those topics are categorized properly.
It's less overwhelming that way (instead of trying to grasp the entire site) and because it's on topics I have strong knowledge of and interest in, it makes it easy to do regularly.
