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.

Hi MickiIf you've noticed I've not written any hubs recently, I'm on my vacations from University and thought of doing a 30 hubs in 30 days challenge. Rather, I've gone for a 30 Wizzley articles in 30 days - for a good reason: Their amazon Capsules are way better formatted - users feel like...

I knnow it happens all the time here on HP, but is there any way to stop this from happening? Curious!A thought.....could we follow their link and report them there? Or is this just something that HP and the rest of us have to deal with/ignore?

I have been seeing a lot of forum spam lately. I think it could be *greatly* reduced by only allowing new sign-ups to post under the help section until they've published one hub. After they've published their first hub, then they could post anywhere. I think this would deter a lot of the people who...
