This evening I have noticed an awful lot of posts in the forums about football game live streaming. All them seem to only contain links to an external site.
On checking the poster's profile I found that they joined this evening, and have only posted all these football links in the forums.
Is this permitted, or is it spam under TOS and should therefore be reported?
I do not want to cause problems for anyone if it is allowed, but it is getting annoying and is not just tonight, either.
They are spam, and we report them all the time. I suggest reporting one or two of the spam messages, then go straigth to their profile and flag that as well.
It is spam and needs flagging - flag the profile while you are at it
Thank you. Have flagged the profile. Not even a link to the West Brom game! Now that is rude!
It is unfortunate, yet you will see this type of spammer appear on the forums from time to time.
Yes. Have had gridiron posts, football posts, basketball posts... I just got sick of it.

I received an email that one of my update articles has items that may be spam. I have no idea what it could be, because everything is about the product. We are permitted an outside link ie my blog, but other than that I can't figure out why it isn't being featured. Could someone tell me what...

As an out gay man, I'd like to address a topic that I've noticed in recent months that's extremely disturbing. Specifically, I'm talking about forum posts that are nothing more than homophobic sentiments, disguised in the form of a question. I'm not going to link to these posts because I...

What can Hubpages do to help stop SPAM in our forums?Report this SPAM, fellow Hubbers! These SPAM questions about bed linens are currently dominating the forum. Of course, as quick as Hubpages deletes them, more will pop up in the forum. What can we do to stop this, any ideas?
