    It's gotten pretty easy to recognize them quickly, though.  When I do, I just go immediately to their profile and flag.  Maybe we should all just agree to flag or report them as soon as we spot them.  That's the only way I know of currently to do anything about them.

    I have seen people reply to spam and include the quote with the spam link in it in their answer; which must make even more work for the HubPages staff.

      CASE1WORKERposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      yeah, i think even if you are not sure it is best to flag as a genuine hubber will be able to justify what they have done0 starting long arguments is what the spammer wants as it keeps their link alive

    CASE1WORKERposted 7 years ago

    yeah, the  staff at hubpages must be sitting there on the attack.... only when the keep getting caught quickly will they realise its not worth the work and try somewhere else
