    What does "flag the profile" means??Can anyone intentionally flag the profiles of unknown or known hubbers?If yes, is there any authentication procedure?

      Well, I have flagged your profile so that someone on the HP team can investigate further, and I urge others to do so as well. I'm not fond of having content thieves on HP. I just checked several of your hubs and the ones I looked at were all stolen from other sites. I have flagged each one individually and sent the URL where  you stole the content from up to the HP team.

    "Flag" simply means to alert the moderators to a possible violation. Oftentimes, this occurs when people do Hubhopping, then come across substandard or spammy hubs. If I come across a serial forum spammer, I'd head over and flag the profile rather than flagging every spammy post.

    I Couldn't Help But Notice That Your Profile Has Been Flagged!! yikes

    It might pay you to remove the flag pole at the top right hand corner of your site C-Panel, so that malicious flaggers do Not Target You in this way!  hmm

      I've never thought of a profile being flagged.  I looked in my profile and I don't understand how you can remove the flag pole at the top right hand corner.  How do you do this?  I just looked at Mousumi's profile and it doesn't say that the profile had been flagged.

        Pearldiver was making a joke, my friend. Of course, you cannot see that a profile has been flagged.

            Don't worry, Pearldiver does that to people all the time; he calls it his "Kiwi accent." Few are those who understand it. Actually, it is a baiting tactic, which works well in the coral reefs.
