Flagging Hubs

    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 smile 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. big_smile

    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.

    Yeah, I think I will start flagging them then. Thanks.
