call girl spammers on the Answer section of HP!!
I have started and participated in so many threads on this subject now I want to give appreciation where it is due!! What ever you did worked!! Keep the good work going!!
Good! At least one person other than I noticed it and is appreciative!!
I love to see HubPages clean!!
This is great.. Sorry I didn't see this post before. I thought I was the only one to notice this too. I have my Facebook page attached to my Hubpage profile and kept getting friend request from some rather slutty looking women and wonder where in the world is this coming from.? Much thanks to the Hubpage street sweepers for cleaning up our side of the street.

That's alright - I still feel that way!
Every few days spammers will visit the forums and/or write hubs either to do with ripping DVDs or hiring call girls. The posts are filled with affiliate links etc.

Once reported the team usually delete it fairly fast.
The HP staff is pretty on top of their game. They're always on the lookout for shenanigans.

For the second time in less than a week, I just spent time opening "questions" that aren't questions, but nonsensical "garbage"--bits of a paragraph copies from somewhere and dumped into HP. In each case, I flagged them for HP, and they will likely disappear soon. But they harm...

I've been on here for a few years, and I guess I never really understood the point of these scores. They don't seem to provide any real value to the user and I can't convince myself that they add value because they fluctuate so much.What's the point? Am I supposed to use these scores to tell me...

I am thoroughly enjoying the song made by Crystolite for having a song for Hubpages. It's awesome!You can check it out here. I think he sums up all the stuff many Hubbers would agree to. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TW6Iex8mxag
