Spam attack from Hubber with no hubs underway

    I've reported it when I've seen it to HP, but I'm not responding to the topic. Why bump it. If you run across it, please just report it to HP.

    They are using all kinds of topic titles, so it's not obvious until you read it.

    okay that does it. we're looking for ansenlin. She actually flipped a hubber the bird who chastized her!

    I don't have the time to stay here and keep reporting her. As you see her posts just let HP know. She's all over the place.

    Too funny if she spams this topic!

    Yeah, she's flipping everyone off. Too funny, does she think that'll make us look at her site? Or maybe she's trying to get us to hate the site??? Dumb, just dumb.Good job reporting her.

    Why open a thread to talk about this?  Just report it.

    I simply deleted her comments. Maybe i will start reporting her from now

    Because Sweetiepie people were responding to it and bumping threads. And it doesn't hurt to have all of us looking for it. She was everywhere for awhile.

    It also let people vent a bit if needed. I didn't see any harm to it.

    Starting this topic also told her that we weren't having any and were uniting against her and I think that that's great when prolific spammer shows up.

    I don't get your concern about this thread at all.

      It just seemed a little over zealous, and I am entitled to my opinion.  However, if it all really bothered you, have fun with it.

    This wasn't my idea of fun and yes spammers bother me alot. So with your permission I will continue. But she is gone now, so nothing to worry about.

      Nelle, my opinions are nothing about giving you permission.  It just seemed kind of over zealous because I doubt a spammer cares if we open a thread about it or not.  You do not have to be brisk with me just because I do not agree.

    So did you report them to the hubpages team? I think that is the appropriate thing to do. If it's okay with hubpages, then your time is better spent, working on your own hubs and not critizing another hubber my name. There has been infinite discussion about photo hubs in the past. - Nelle

    No offense Nelle.
