    Please all hubbers do note that scammers are sending messages to hubbers in the form of friendship request.Beware!

    I've noticed!  There must be a rash of new hubbers.  At least all the emails that I've received have been from new ones with no hubs published.

    Forums also getting spammed daily. Are they using any BOT?

    Having been on HubPages for three years now, I have to say this is nothing new.  This sort of thing goes on all the time.

    There are some sites who require that a member has been a member and an active one for a qualifying period of time before they can post in the forums. Does anyone agree that this is a good idea?

      I may have said no but after last week I think it would be a good idea...

      Even knowing that I wouldn't be able to post this very opinion (since I am a newbie) I am willing to say that, yes, there should be some restriction. Newbies should have to have some type of history here and active hubs before they are allowed full access to the site. This would also help them to take the proper time in figuring out what to write about and how to set up their hub...

      Good idea, kudos.
