The post above is an article plagiarized from another website.
This is another example why having at least one featured Hub should be the minimum requirement for posting to the forum.
There is a five featured hub rule to bypass publishing moderation. Why not use the same rule to bypass using the forums.? Why is Hubpages so reluctant to implement changes in the forums so its members can feel confident in the site?
The suggestion to require five published Hubs before posting on the forum was raised in this thread and answered by an HP employee:
The other day I was talking to someone in a forum and didn't quite get what they meant. I think I understand now. You are saying that anyone can post in a forum even if they have never written a hub? And some believe that it is attributing to the copying of hubs?
Yes, anyone may post on the forum whether or not they have ever written a Hub.
No, I don't think that is a factor in copying Hubs. That comment was about the spam forum post that started this forum thread and has since been removed. The spammer posted an entire article here which had been plagiarized from another website.
It was reported 2 hours ago and it's still here.
Yea, but it's fun to humiliate them publicly for a little while first.
Spoken like a true cat playing with a dead mouse. I love the animal kingdom. Someday we will rule the world, Fat Freddy's Cat.
I doubt they read the threads. They are just here to post.
When you post to a spam thread - I think it prevents the 'team' from deleting the post completely.
Correct me if I am wrong on this.
If that is true replying to a spammer's post keeps at least part of the spam post (the subject/title) in the forum line up. It looks obvious to me that is what happens. Can anyone tell me if I am right or wrong on this?

This forum is a place for you to post hubs that you think are clearly of low quality and need flagging. Committed hubbers should follow this forum and check these hubs posted for quality when they have the time. If a hub has been clearly copied (for example from a PDF file that the plagiarism...

There are a lot of us who haven't been feeling safe on the forums. They've felt stalked, harassed and browbeaten.Sadly, some folks go with the letter of the law, but not the spirit of it in their posts.For an excellent post on why we need Forum Moderators, check out what Makingamark says here...

This has been perplexing me for a while - has something changed or have I just gone ga-ga?Being in a different time zone from most Hubbers, I rely on being able to click the "Your" button to catch up with who's posted on threads since I commented.Recently I've been missing comments...

Some of us are encountering an issue in the forum. On the front page, it will indicate that responses have been made since we last participated in a thread, but when we click on the name of the most recent respondent, rather than being taken to that response, we come to the start of the last page...

If I may be so bold as to make a request of HubPages, I would like you to please re-examine at this time your decision to ban Jerrico Usher from the Hub Forums.He has proven himself to be quite mindful of the mistake he made before and seems to me to be waaay to smart to make the same mistake...

I was just wanting a few other opinions about this type of unfeatured hub. Lately I have had like three go on the unfeatured list due to lack of traffic. They are some of my first posts here, and I am posting them back on social media sites, but I'm not so sure it's important to me at this point to...
