Very annoying, can anyone out there in hubville offer advise? sara85 is the spammer.
You know you can just hit the report button on here comment on the thread.
I wish though that we had a report button when we go to the persons profile. That would be so much better.
Click the report tab,look at the drop down and click spam, submit.
Click report button and select the spam option over there that can you can protect the spammers
there have been a few today. just go to their post and you will see a box on the bottom that says report, click report and then you'll see the drop down box to click on SPAM, do it as soon as you see them.
Hubpages is very good at eliminating spammers. The problem is we really do need an after hours moderator.
The spammers get wise and come on after office hours.
One day we will be at a point where we see them for only a few seconds and they will vanish.

This is a suggestion. Do whatever the heck you want to do:For those who don't know, which seems to be many, when you respond to someone who drops a spam link in the forum, you quote the spam link. That means, even if the admin gets rid of the original spam post, the spam link remains because you...

As mentioned in this thread: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/75200There are many spammers who still have thousands of hubs up, even if they are on probation. Obviously flagging an account doesn't work so for those of us who are still trying to help Hubpages in any way - adopt a SPAM account and...
