I was going to read some new hubbers stuff today, and most of what I found was shadow profiles, mostly with one hub that consisted of just one picture. These hubs were all created within about 6 hours. What's going on with that? Is this some sort of attack of the shadow people?
I was going to report them, but it would be so many!
I've been finding lots of those for a while. I assumed it's just the way it is sometimes. Rather than report them, I figure it may take some time to publish a hub or two, so I just ignore them.
Yeah, that's what I figured. I did report one guy who posted like 19 hubs in 2 hours, all with links to his affiliate site. Now THAT is spamming!

Mine's frozen at 'five hours ago' even though I've posted comments and published a hub in the time since. Is this a glitch? Or is there something else going on?

Maybe I missed an announcement, or maybe this is a glitch; but does anyone know about why no Hubs are found when searching from within someone's profile (our own or another Hubbers)? (because I sense a giant rant building up if this is someone's idea of adding quality to subdomains ...

There seems to be a lot of spamming going on, on here, with fake accounts advertising... Has anyone else noticed? Or maybe the increase is just my imagination?

I am close to getting a job where I will be working overtime almost every day, even during the slow season. I have been told that I would be working 11-13 hour shifts during the Summer. Major overtime! What's your job like?
