I'm new here, and have been watching a user named Philgood put up over 70 spammy hubs since he joined 6 hours ago.
What's the best course of action here?
Are there automatic systems that discover and delete this sort of stuff, or does Hub Pages rely on users to report it?
Although I've only been here a short time, I'm starting to get a bit protective of Hub Pages.
How sad is that !!
We all get that way (protective) - email team@hubpages and let them know. Plus you can flag a few of his hubs. I guarantee he will be gone before the day is out
The best course of action always is to relax and enjoy
You can report the guy to email@example.com if you want the justice to work faster
Well, He's still there, but his hubs have disappeared. Shame about all that hard work going to waste wasn't it !!
Which gives me a thought . . .
His hubs were being made at the rate of one every 5-10 minutes.
Assuming that he was doing them manually, it would be a great trick if Hub Pages could leave them there - but only visible to his IP address.
This would mean that he would be spamming away - creating hubs that nobody else could see.
Might keep him busy for ages, and divert him from engaging in other spammy stuff.
On the other hand, he could just be an innocent victim of some guru's $1997 course that told him it was a good idea to make a lot of hubs.
You are evil.
Are you in anyway related to Mark Knowles?
I love the idea of a spammer beavering away creating tons of rubbish that nobody will ever see.

I seem to have picked up a nasty troller. This person has been a member of HP for 2 years, but has absolutely no featured Hubs or any Hubs at all on her page. Unfortunately she seems to have picked me to, well, pick on - which means she is probably doing it to others as well. She is negative, rude,...

Who do we report it to? I can flag a hub but not a profile?

There seems to be someone posting a Spam Link on hubs. I have reported it from my hub. I am wondering if others are getting this person on their hubs also? What this person does is "Copy" a section of Your comments and "paste" them in the comment box. The Name listed by the...

In which cases would you flag/report someone to Hubpages, or even ask that they be banned?For example, if someone slandered your name, would you flag them? Here is a comment taken from a religious Q&A comment on Hubpages: "Compulsive lying with an inclination towards spreading...

I have been on Hub Pages about a year and I have written about 27 Hubs and they have received close to 5000 views, which I felt was not bad and my status hovers between 82-88. Last week I had about 8 of my Hubs featured, which again seemed ok. Now magically overnight, I have all these codes now...
