        This is great..  Sorry I didn't see this post before. smile 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. smile

    Being fairly new had no idea there was a problem. I am constantly amazed by the fact that the more I learn the less I know:)

      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.

      If you ever see one simply click report, don't reply to it.

      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.
