The amount of spam coming into the forums by these people in the last week is amazing. Just now I got notifications of 32 forum posts by spammers who signed up less than 20 minutes ago and copy pasted the same spammy message to each forum. What do you think?
sort by best latest
40 more notifications - the same person using 5 profiles and spamming the forums. Just wondered what everyone thought, or if I was alone in my thinking. TY mgeorge1050 for your comment. I agree there has to be a change in the rules.
You can click on the question and in the top right corner there is a link to report the questions as spam. I reported the string of questions yesterday and this morning and they disappeared in just a few minutes. Way to go hubpages!
mgeorge1050, I've been clicking the report link on each question posted as well as their profile page. Their questions have been disabled, their profiles still remain, even though I reported them. This tells me they will return to continue their spam
I think anyone new joining Hubpages who is serious about wanting to write here will see all this garbage and run the other way - to find a site that is better moderated or who has better rules so that this crap doesn't happen.
You are absolutely right!
I can't view your screenshot to read what they wrote, but I do see the repetitive posting. It is one thing to delete forum posts. If HP leaves the profiles active, it is a waste of time reporting them at all, in my opinion. They'll be back to spam.
No, it won't keep me from writing on HP either, but I am more choosy about the forum questions I choose to comment on. The spammy ones I report and I've been doing alot of reporting lately. lol
I report things from time to time, too. Hopefully it'll dissuade the jerks from junking up this site

I agree. I'm up late at night and I swear they converge on these forums between midnight and 4AM. lol It's been very bad lately.
no, they wouldn't. They would be banned after repeated flags on profile. Or proven plagarism. So far HP has been shutting down questions when "report" is clicked in forums, but Not on profiles. So they live on to post again another day. And they do
