There's a spammer in the forums today-what else is new?-and I wondered if it's necessary to report each and every thread. It's all over the place.
Is one report adequate?
I usually report the profile which hits all the spam in one fell swoop
Jeeze, I can't believe I never thought of that! Well, I guess I'm not so smart after all! Thanks, Susana.
spammer is everywhere in the internet and for me although you can avoid one there will be still followers for that...
It'll take awhile, the staff are in California so they might not be in to delete.
I am too, but does that matter? Flightkeeper, should I go to each thread and report each and every one?
I've reported a couple. And I'm sure other people have. I don't know if they have software that deletes spammers or they manually process it. If they haven't deleted by now, I'm not sure that reporting each and every one is going to delete them any faster.
If ya got the time, report them. I dont, Im headn off to work...
i've been reporting as i run into the spammer....i'm sure they'll be along on this thread in no time...
My dear honorable Linpinpin,
How could you? Don't spoil the fun we are having.
Go take your ware elsewhere, let's enjoy ourselves here
I saw him too, reported the post about buying sneakers online
I do not blame the person at all for the threads he has started or the wares he is promoting.
It's not his fault in all probability.
Where the problem lies is unscrupulous marketers writing crap reports and blog posts about building links and promoting products.
These people openly provide a blueprint to those un-initiated wannabees on how to make sales and how to get links. These reports are often sold for good money and their naive purchasers set about putting the blueprint in place.
Hence, what we see as spamming our forum.
That's the pity of it all.

I'm not sure how many people here report spam in the forum, lately I've been on the beat quite a bit reporting spam but I'm curious to know who else out there on HubPages who also do report spam if they see it?

Stupid question, but here goes. Can we get flagged by HP as a spammer if we report several spammers or spam questions/comments/etc within a short period of time. When I was going through the "answer" section, I found tons of spam and started flagging them, then decided just to go to the...

Hey guys, gals and admin, bistroo has been doing some spamming in the forums, he has 2 external links, he only joined an hour ago so he's probably gone for good, but would be good to know you've done your thing!
