What's the prevalence of Hubbers recieving sapm in fan message posts? I had a slew a couple days ago, including one of at least 500 words.
First time for me a couple of days ago... I guess because it doesn't happen often, it doesn't bother me.
It's never happened to me...maybe I shouldn't have said that. HEHE
But, I've had a few doozies in my comments box on occasion. Religion can be inspiring at times. LOL
I just got the worst one EVER by this creep "guessmyname" that is running around the forums right now.
Hope "it" is banned! yuk.
Yeah, this guy is definitely - ummm - unusual. I can't classify him so far
I get them sometimes, but noticed a bit more than usual this week.
sometimes in the comments box though ... it pops once in awhile.
OK, sometimes it happens more than others.
I would never have thought to spam in a fan club posting. Always something new here.
Patty! I've had a couple of them over the past month or so but Angelic Stephanie left some 'spam-a-roni' on my fan mail two days ago. It seems so futile to go to all that hassle. Don't they know that the 'c**p' will be denied right away? I will never understand all this.
Judging by the expert hubbers posting, getting spam in your fan mail is a sign of success!
Ah, I wish...!!
That's what I was thinking? Maybe they spam the best people. None for me.
Imagine me with my tail between my legs....
After reading several of the posts on this string, I have to guess that I am at least one of the offending parties. I had an idea recently to write a chapter of my novel as a work in progress. I worked in a museum several years ago where they had a house they were restoring and presented it as a work in progress, so people could come back year after year and see the restoration in the works. That was what inspired me to do this.
So I went through the list of sites that have joined my fanclub and whose fanclub I have joined. I didn't think that I was spamming, but maybe that's because spamming is a subjective term. What is considered spam to one person may not be to someone else. I should note, in support of that theory, that I have received several rather supportive emails from people who liked the idea. I perhaps naively thought that people would appreciate that I was re-visting their sites, since I suspect that a lot of people never go back after the initial visit.
If I have somehow offended someone, I beg forgiveness and pledge not to make the same mistake again.
Nope, nada, nothin'.
I've had a couple of insane comments, but that was a couple of months ago, I just denied them.
Jim Henry, haven't seen any of your 'work in progress'....can't you publish it as a hub?
It's published....here's the link: http://hubpages.com/hub/Chapter-Eightee … n-Progress
I'm actually having a great deal of fun with this. As you'll see when you read about my experiment, I have gotten my evil villain into a mess and he absolutely has to get out. I know how I got him into it, but he can't leave the way he came.
Since I haven't got a conception how I'm going to get him out, I'm sort of winging it, and that's where the fun is. It's exciting to write a piece and experience the thrill of "learning" something just as if I were a first-time reader.

I have been seeing a lot of forum spam lately. I think it could be *greatly* reduced by only allowing new sign-ups to post under the help section until they've published one hub. After they've published their first hub, then they could post anywhere. I think this would deter a lot of the people who...

I along with others are tired of the never ending spam in the Q and A section. Some of us prefer the more civil (well sometimes more civil) Q and A over the forums. Please start something that slows the overwhelming amount of spam that has been there lately. Implement something that keeps newbies...

There is one guy who is on my fan club who has some content on his pages that I am not comfortable with. How can I get him off?

Is anyone else getting spam messages on their hubs?In the past couple of hours, I received three comments on 3 random hubs of mine. The comments have nothing to do with my hubs. I looked up the ip addresses. Two were from the Netherlands. One was from Qatar.

I suggest that HP prevent any registered user from posting a new topic to the forums if they have no hubs. They can comment but not start new threads.Most forums that I use have this restriction in place.

Is there any way to delete "spam fans" aka those who when you go back and look at their hubtivity all they've done for hours is become fans of hubbers, and when you note their score, it's a 1 and they've been on hubpages for quite a while?
