I wonder of anyone would mind giving some feedback on flagging hubs. I have never flagged anyone's hub before and am not sure how it works. Here's the thing - I was looking around hubpages to find some other hubbers motorcycle hubs to link to and came across a few that were written strangely. "Poor English," would be charitable, "gibberish" more realistic. Are these acceptable reasons to flag someone else's hub?
I think they are - if you are into that kind of thing.
I personally used to be an avid critic, but stopped giving minuses and thumbs down quite some time ago, and flag only outright spam, when I happen to stumble over it, and even that I'm trying to avoid as much as I can - which is really hard at times I admit Of course I'm talking not only about Hubpages here
Like I said, I have never flagged anyone's hub before, but these are showing up on my hub as "related hubs" and I want nothing to do with them.
I have been thumbs down which I don’t mind but they don’t live a comment to why they have thumb you down now that bodes me
I actually flagged a hub last night, for the first time... in that case because it had a gibberish title, no content, new user, and the same "gibberish" that was in the title had also been left as comments in a number of places.
On the whole, though, I don't bother... if something is obviously BAD, I just click on and probably won't read that person again.
I sometimes check latest hubs in tags which I often post in. There's a lot of spam - low quality, mutliple hubs with basically the same content often the thing they are promoting is the same as the hubbers handle. I figure it does my hubs no good at all if this crap is coming up on related hubs.

it used to be the case that when when you flagged a hubpage, you could comment with your reason for doing such to help the hubteam understand, i used the box to put links to websites that certain hubbers had copied and pasted word for word and published on hubpages as their own work, i can only...

If we flag a hub, does it say which hubber put in the flag, or is it anonymous. I mean, could someone turn around and flag your hub to retaliate? How does it work exactly? Thanks.

I really don't like the "new" hopper and have not bothered to hop hubs since it came out several months ago. In the spirit of helping to clear up the backlog, however, I gave it another shot tonight.The sliding scale ratings are too much to worry with, IMHO. I tried to thoughtfully apply...

Over the past few days, I've been having some problems flagging hubs. I'm not sure if I'm the only person experiencing this, but it's been happening ever since I got my new computer, so my guess is it's a bug that is kind of happening to me because of the browser I'm using (Safari.) Also, the...
