So I guess because so many people responded to it, now their back.

They've all been reported.
I'm a total Newb around here so I will not presume to tell older members what to do, however I would kindly suggest we don't place replies to spam.
I like it here!
Sorry, but in that case yesterday I do not apologize for responding to that spam post, especially since it opened an interesting discussion, which is the only reason I participated. Anything advocating a product that suggests women should feel less about their self image is just wrong. By the way, I rarely respond to those posts, but I would say the best rule of thumb is only respond to the posts you think are good for you, and let others decide what is best for them.
I would agree with that wholeheartedly...except in the case of obvious spam. Spam is bad for the community as a whole, don't you think?
The most annoying part (to me, anyway) is how it messes up the natural continuity of the posts...things get pushed down and replaced by the spam while you're trying to follow 2 or 3 conversations.
Everyone is free to do as they choose, of course. I merely suggest.
Show me who to Club!! I Love Women (o'corse I don't know any.. But I'll sort it out) I'll be a Rescuer!! Look at me.. I'm a Strong, Handsome, Stubbly Man!
I have a feeling this loser doesn't read the forums he spams.
Well he did stick his tongue out at me, so he read what I wrote apparently.

I think HP should put some sore of restriction on posting to the forums to keep people from joining just to post their spam.New hubbers should have to at least publish One hub of original content before having access to the forums. I'm sure this will not eliminate all the spammers but it may...

My understanding is that this is against the ToS. Yet I see a huge amount of it going on.

Is there a way to report spam on here?There seems to be an awful lot of spammy posts on here lately, people selling stuff, etc. Do they monitor that stuff? I'd rather not see it!

What can Hubpages do to help stop SPAM in our forums?Report this SPAM, fellow Hubbers! These SPAM questions about bed linens are currently dominating the forum. Of course, as quick as Hubpages deletes them, more will pop up in the forum. What can we do to stop this, any ideas?
