A newbie has 2 accounts here.

    A newbie has 2 accounts here. And she is promoting her blog.

    Apart from that she has been increasing her "following."

    Looks fishy.

      Fishy?  Can we not have more than one account?  I mean, I don't but I guess I'm not real familiar with the rules (which has been my problem most of my life!)  I'm assuming the Powers-That-Be are on top of things.  The Hubpage crew is very good about things that go bump in the night.

    This isn't the place to handle these sorts of things. 

    Admin prefers if you report such concerns directly to them, as no one in the forums can do anything about it.  And each profile has a link right at the top just for that purpose.

    If you have a problem with a hubber profile or hubber use the "Flag this Profile." I agree with Relache that this isn't the place to be discussing other hubbers like this.

    I've seen newbies that only had their own alter egos as followers.

    My advice would be to let them waste their time, and not to let it waste any more of yours.
