I received this email today that might explain why HP is getting a lot of spammy type hubs.
Just thought I'd share:-
Now, I’m not really much into the affiliate/JV game, but the other day I was emailed The $5 Traffic Trick. I don’t normally buy into these things, but for $5 my curiosity got the best of me and I couldn’t pass it up. Besides, one thing every webmaster/marketer needs is traffic…
Anyway, this is a quick read, maybe consisting of ten pages, but the meat and potatoes really comes out in a couple of those pages. I read through it, and what can I say, I’m a believer. I won’t give away the details here (although it mainly involves Squidoo and Hubpages), but if you’re looking for traffic, are willing to put in a few minutes of work, you definitely won’t be disappointed. It’s just one of those oft overlooked cool little ideas that can add up to big numbers if implemented properly.
It’s a thumbs up for The $5 Traffic Trick for me, and I can’t wait to get started implementing this idea!
I found a member today who has tons and tons of fake comments on his hubs. All of his hubs are spam, and almost everyone who commented had a fake i.d. with no hubs and no avatar. That must be what this is about.
I was going to report him, but my computer froze up (damned Firefox) and I couldn't find my way back there.

I just received an email congratulating me for one of my hubs being selected as "Editor's Choice". It didn't tell me which hub was selected however and I checked my stats and there is no new hub labelled "editor's Choice." Does anyone know how long it takes to show up?

Is everyone disappointed about HubPages new system/standards?I've been noticing some people express disappointment with the way HP is running business lately.

I noticed that I have not received one notification from HP since yesterday at 11:55 a.m.! I am not receiving any notifications on hubs I have commented on or newly published hubs from hubbers I follow. Is anyone else having this trouble? I have typed my email address in again...

Is it just me? I usually gets quite a few notices of new hubs, although they've been showing up in my bulk folder. But I haven't gotten any at all in two or three days! Is no one publishing new hubs, or has my Yahoo mailbox gone bonkers?
