Is there a "serial commenter" on the loose?


I've just had 8 or 9 irrelevant comments on 8 or 9 of my hubs. In each case, the commenter used a different single one syllable name. Some of the comments amounted to jibberish, other seemed like they were misdirected legitimate comments on other hubs, and one was relevant to the hub to which it was posted, so I replied to that comment. Has anyone else had this experience?

    Hi Brian, isn't it amazing...of all the exciting things one can do/discover on the net, some people use it for silly cybervandalism. They must be verrrry lonely people. Thanks for the response.

    I just got another one, Sanjay, and hit the spam tab. That will notify HP so that the spammer can be blocked. I'll do that with any others I get, and I expect I'll get many more now.

    Thanks for responding, tics. Be happy that you haven't had any. They can be an annoyance to deal with just because they interrupt your day and break your focus.

    Thanks, Sheila. If any more come in, I'll do that. I saw the spam tab but didn't realize that HP officials would take note.

    Thanks for the input, traveleze. It's comforting to know that I haven't been singled out.

    Hi peachpurple, yeah, BW was loaded with them but it was a simple matter of clicking on the "Report" tab and the BW gods would take care of it. I haven't been on there in months. Thanks for stopping by.
