    I have come across a whole sheaf of "new hubbers", where the content of the hub includes:

    all groups of characters linked to something.

    It is impossible to keep track of and flag all this. Surely, there is an easy automated way to check whether hubs include nonsense????

    Why is the HP bureaucracy doing nothing at all to stop this stuff appearing in the first place???????????

      I came across 4 of those hubs yesterday and flagged them. Obviously the same person.

      We're aware of this and are working on a way to prevent it.

    I agree!  There are several factors or issues that should be red flags to stop a Hub or an entire account at the door, before publication.  In the long run, it would save HP staff, other Hubbers, and the entire world a great deal of time and grief, if they would create and use the means to prevent the problem, instead of trying to deal with it after the fact.

    I did go on a flagging spree once and developed a method that went along very fast.  But I still think the garbage should be stopped before it ever starts.

      I must agree with this. Why create problems for all? smile

    They are by at least two hubbers (or maybe the same with different accounts) and all the hubs are like this. So far today I have flagged 5 of them and the profiles.....cool

    Those Hubs are written in Martian-ese.  That's all.  I just knew when that flying saucer dropped all those Martians off in Albuquerque last week, the first thing they'd do was sign up for HubPages and start writing Hubs.  (I don't know...   Is it really all that important to be all that picky about about grammar and spelling???   hmm  )               (lol)

    Is that serious? They just smash buttons like that?  That's terrible.  I'll keep an eye out and flag 'em if I see 'em.

      I saw many yesterday. I found 6 and they all had different profile/usernames. Very annoying going through the newest hubs and seeing that.

    In addition, I've found some groups on Facebook filled with the same thing though there is no indication that they are not an English based language group.
