Do you flag hubs that are just blatant advertising?
I see so many that are not articles at all-just ads for things that usually look like scams. I'm wondering how many people flag those when they see them, and how they determine which hubs to flag.
I focus more on appreciating good works of hubbers though I flag hubs too but rarely if content is extremely promotional or irritating
Yes, I do -- these are spam, and spam doesn't have any place on a quality writing site. Admin can only do something about it if someone alerts them to its presence, and I certainly don't hesitate to hit the "flag" button whenever I hop across a hub that violates the TOS in any way, including spamming.
Thanks for the advice! I'd love to hear from more hubbers!
i have seen these hubs. however, i havent started flagging them. i joined over 6 months again but just began to write for hub pages.
i was considering flagging these and i believe starting today that i will.
I haven't come across any hubs yet that need flagging.

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.
