    The call-girl spammers. Should HP block the use of the term Call-girl or anything like it?

    I have noticed that we're all getting pretty peeved with flagging these jokers, so should HP block the terms associated with it like they have blocked the use of certain words an phrases in questions.

    I have asked the question in a poll and would be interested in knowing how many feel this is the way to stop them

    It might work, until they find a new way of putting it, I thought about it a while ago, the main problem would be where hubbers writing, say, a story or an article that has a valid reason for the phrase, it would block them.  I still think that what I wrote the other day about earning your place on here, 3 months, 3 acceptable hubs and a corner score no less than 50, then ban them if they post call-girl stuff after the earning process?

    No, too many ways of getting around it, and there could be legitimate uses of the word (or similar).

    What is needed is for Hub staff to promptly pay attention to flags.

    It's like graffiti -- they need to stay on top of it.

    It's hard to effectively control anything online, but I agree with dabeaner.

    the spam is getting a little out of hand. I'm not a computer wiz. so I'm not sure what can be done, but I think we would all be a lot happier if there was less or no spam on hubpages.
