This paper presents a description of the participation of the UPC-USMBA team in the SemEval 2017 Task 3, subtask D, Arabic. Our approach for facing the task is based on a performance of a set of atomic classifiers (lexical string-based, vectorial, and rule-based) whose results are later combined. Our primary submission has obtained good results: 2nd (from 3 participants) in MAP, and 1st in inaccuracy.
