What can a HP member do when she/he is targeted by a nasty troll?


Last night I had 7 nasty comments left on 7 of my hubs, unrelated to the hubs' content. This person had joined HP 2 hours previously as "clevermind", but written nothing, apparently just to spam/abuse HP writers. I flagged his/her account and deleted the abusive comments. This morning there others to take their places, under various names, none of them with an account. I changed my Comments settings to disallow non-member comments, but what if this idiot continues to sign on under different names? Will HP admin. do anything about it? Anyone else had a visit from this person with no life?

    Either the HP team removed his (one) account when I flagged it and gave specifics, or he/she just left. All the other "comments" were under a variety of non-member names. I stopped that with setting changes, but he already had my name. Troubling,yes.

    Thanks for your comment, ketage. Either HP admin quickly deleted the account after I complained, but this "person's" other inappropriate comments were made as a non-member. Once I changed my settings, he/she could no longer do that on HP.

    I deleted all the HP comments and changed my Comments settings so that non-member comments aren't accepted. After I signed off HP, I found that this jerk tracked me down to another site and made this same very inappropriate comment there!
