    Yesterday, I found a link in a hub that was spam, and I almost had to shut down computer to get out of site. This has happened in the past. McAfee has free Site Advisor. Why can't hubbers be required to check the security of a website prior to linking?

    Sometimes there are hubbers who create hubs to advertise those kinds of sites. When you find hubs like that, flag them and write in the comment section that the link appears to be harmful to your computer.

    I flag them, but I wonder if some hubbers are trusting of sites ?? or don't take the time to check them out before linking. This may refer to some newbies. Those that I have come across are fairly new to the site.
