Is there some way we can flag, not just individual hubs, but actual individuals? There are several who might merit it, but recently I've had ongoing problems with one in particular, leaving comments (often written in such a way as to make it clear that the user has NOT read my hub through), using their Hubpages user ID but inputting a commercial link instead. I've checked out this person's hubs, and every single one is almost incoherent or rambling, simply leading up to a related product at this person's website.
I keep deleting comments, but sometimes they show up all of 2 minutes after I've published, saying "Great recipe! It was really yummy!" or something when there's no possible way they could have made it already... and I'm not always by the computer to censor these things.
There isn't a formal way to flag a user. However, if you continue to flag their hubs, and flag their comments as spam and delete them, we'll notice that there is a problem eventually (especially if other people do the same). If you'd like to email Jason or me the username privately we can investigate and take appropriate action.

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 prefer the old way to flag a hub (I don't remember when you changed it.)Back in the day the different "reasons for flagging" used to really stand out (and I could easily remember which reasons were in which...

Usually the first thing I do when I log on here is to check out the 'New' hubs to see what's going on. I also usually end up flagging spammy hubs along the way. The thing is that the spammers seem to be following...

I'm not sure if I have mentioned this before here, so: it would REALLY help if we got feedback on stuff we flag - if only on the stuff that admins decide does NOT warrant action. Many times I have been...
