the weeding dress sorry the wedding dress promotion profile (trader stone ) has created a couple of other profiles and in the Q&A section I have been noticing that only these multiple personalities interact. Doesn't this get noticed by HP admin... a different method of spamming!
Do flag it sofs and their profiles too - the HP team may miss it unless someone brings it to their attention.
The HP team is very small for the size of the site, so flagging dodgy stuff really helps them.
I problem is I am not too sure and I don't want to be flagging some newbie, I brought this up because this person has now started threads in the forums.
How does someone check if all these are the same person promoting wedding dresses?
the moderators or admins can check the IP addresses used by those persons. Ans Susana is right, if you think the posts are unusual and may seem spammy, you may flag the content.
the profiles in question are traderstone, yydiyiye01,skullsweets
would you check them out I just did the checking out myself and found them spammy
These examples are kind of borderline, so I understand it's hard to know what to do sometimes.
I spent a little while the other day flagging all of yydiyiye01's posts/questions and answers and all that's left are the questions they asked, which they will get absolutely no benefit from. HP have decided to keep the questions, but have removed the rest of other stuff this user posted.
I would say traderstone is getting ready to spam, lol. But hasn't yet, so I haven't flagged them, but my clicking finger is poised (I hate spam!).
Skullsweets put their email address in the question which is not allowed so I've flagged that.
If you've got say two or three user profiles all asking questions and answering each other, then the chances are very high it's spam. You can't check yourself if they are the same person but HP can.
Don't worry about flagging newbies - just do it! Using questions, answers, forum posts etc to manipulate the system is against HP's TOS and when hubpages reviews the flagged content they can decide if it is spam and decide what to do. Flagging just says to them, "hey, this doesn't look right, check it out."

Is it normal not to receive an email explaining why I was suspended from posting? I know 100% I have no reason to be suspended. I have NEVER name called or said anything that I think is considered a violation, yet I can not participate in Q and A. Can someone enlighten me as to normal procedure of...

Did you notice too many violations in hubpages recently?It started today morning with a spam comment in one of my hubs. I flagged it immediately. When I delved deep, I found that this new hubber had posted similar spam comments and spam hubs in the last few days. I flagged all of them. Now, while...

One of my hubs has a huge amount of comments (questions) from the same person, and I'm just wondering if this could cause my Google rankings to drop. The reason is that the name of this person is on there such a lot of times and Google may perceive that the article is more about Jack than anything...

Whenever I open the forums, I see countless threads by the same people, many of them unanswered or with only a couple of comments. I would love to see a limit on how many threads the same person can open daily. I often have to go to page 2 or 3 to see what else people are...

Because the buttons are so small and so close together on the small iPhone screen, I have at least twice--that I know of--inadvertently flagged hubs or questions that I merely wanted to follow or unfollow. May I suggest moving them where users won't hit one instead of the other? I think it would...

Why do people answer stupid questions when flagging them has become that much easier. This spam...nonsense has to end. As they say the best way to kill a troll is to starve it to death.
