What are good reasons to vote down on a hub?
I've been hubhopping and have found some hubs with really poor content. Should I vote down?
If you find Hubs where the content is so poor that it might be a violation of the site standards, you should actually flag the Hubs so that the moderators can review them manually. This includes lots of spelling or grammatical errors, writing in broken English and content that reads like gibberish.
I vote hubs down when it's obvious that the author did not care, which is offensive to me, the reader. Little things aren't what I'm talking about, though. It's when it is blatantly obvious that the person is pumping out content like a factory, but the content is as poor as can be, and really has no place on HP. Often the same hubs I vote down will be in violation of HP policy, and will get flagged as well.

I've always wondered why some Hubbers have more than one account. Is this a good thing or not? The only thing I can think of is that after a person writes many Hubs, it becomes a chore to take care of that...

I'm pleased to announce that the new and improved flagging reasons that I've alluded to recently have finally arrived. We have broken down some of the umbrella categories like "Substandard" into more...
