When is Hubpages going to take control of the Q and A section?
How many times do we have to ask for them to stop the spam before they step up and stop people who created an account 10 minutes from posting?
I think HP only comes in on the forum posts. Questions are supposed to be thoughts that pop in your head and have nothing to do with HP protocol or anything related to writing.
I've had people follow me (some even leave fan mail with their private email address) who are obviously spammers or looking to hook up. I report them and you should too.
Preach it peeples!!
...and why in the world do they all seem to post their spam under the "How to write short stories" heading? Why do they like that one so much, anyway??
Just hit REPORT immediately....we have to keep chasing them back to the nut house they came from. We should get paid for that!! LOL
Yes, I know. I see spam all the time. Just hit the report button. That's all needs to be done. It gets to be aggravating after a while. Spam seem to occur during the witching hour..........Really, how coincidental is that! Very eerily so........

Recently, the activity on my account has increased considerably. However, none of the comments received on my hubs are from people who are signed in to HubPages. They are all in different names, and they all have one thing in common, what would appear to be a deliberate spelling mistake. How can I...
