    This was it, the entire hub...

    "Do you girls had went to Sears? Well if you havent went,You have to go! I found this really cute heels in Sears.I love them because cheetah is now the "Thing" Like now you're a looser if you dont have something thats is cheetah or zebra.Well its not really cheetah its leopard,but i think is the same thing(: Do you think theyre expensive? Naah! theyre just for 41.99! Thats really cheap! well in my town they have them at 30% off! The real price is 59.99! The sale is gonna be out in 10/01/11.I really love them.

    Description:They have a bow that make them look more cute,im just givin my opinion!(:"

    Maybe a minimum character filter would help?  Or a smilie face filter?

      Stuff like this has always made it into Hubpages - it just needs to be flagged and it will be deleted....if it hasn't been already!

    It sounds like it was written by some kid that doesn't understand what Hubpages is all about. It make me wonder how HP can find all the violations with established author's hubs, yet something like this goes through. In this case, a minimum word count filter would have kicked it out.

    I usually go to Hubs ~> Latest, to see the new hubs that are published but I see it hasn't been updated for 3 days?
    I find the hopper slow.

      I didn't know that.  They should keep updating it.

    OK I went hopping and found this gem

    "When it comes to staying in a municipality, you oft seem to be destroyed for option when choosing a expensiveness hotel."
    "When it comes to staying in a port, you oft seem to be spoilt for option when choosing a wealth hotel"
    "When it comes to staying in a port, you often seem to be destroyed for action when choosing a wealthiness hotel."
    "When it comes to staying in a metropolis, you often seem to be destroyed for action when choosing a sumptuousness hotel."

    he's got six hubs up, the other two are repeats of two of the above.

    I go to the newest hubbers. That way, I can often cull a number of hubs belonging to the same account in one fell swoop. I'm hoping if some of these losers keep getting their accounts terminated within a few hours or a day of joining, they may give up and go away.

      That's a good idea. Popping over there now!

      That is a good idea. I will do that now along with flagging while Hopping.

    I recently wrote a hub about an efficient method of flagging the garbage, including some ideas for finding garbage accounts in the first place.  I'm all for getting rid of it - but I would prefer that it be eliminated before being published!

      I read it, Ms. Aficionada, very good hub, BTW.

      I love to get them in the feed.  Pretty easy to spot.  I just wish they never got that far and with the appropriate filter, this one never would have.

        Thanks, DIYwp!!

        Oh-my-goodness, Yes!

        I've seen forum posts that indicate the engineers are working on a filter - or some filters - to help in this regard.  Let's all hope that they succeed very, very soon.  smile

    I don't really think I have anything that's either cheetah OR zebra, so I guess I'm a giant "looser".  (What to do...   What to do.... )

    Just ran across this lovely article while Hopping along....

    The under-fire politician has apologised for his “arrogance,” but insisted he will not resign.

    OK, while I'm wishing, I'm gonna wish for a gobbledygook filter, too. smile

    I see many people who have good content but haven't mastered the English language yet.
    And a lot of poetry..I am not putting poems down but some people only write poems.
    Shouldn't it be a mix?

    I don't look for them anymore.  I disagree with allowing first time hubbers having free rein to publish anything at will with no review of their first hubs.

    This played a large part in HP being Pandalized in the first place and caused the continuing roller coaster ride some of us are experiencing.  I would gladly review a newbies first few articles to help out with this problem, but HP's present "needle in the haystack" method is simply hopeless.  smile

      I totally agree with Randy, all first time hubs should be reviewed before being published - it doesn't even have to be a complete review but just a glance would weed out about 50% of the dross and that would talk about 30 seconds per hub.

      But surely they must be able to build some kind of filter that says if there are more than 20% of spelling errors then it can't be published or something??
