Each time that Lgali comments on one of my hubs it shows up as Spam and I know they aren't spam. This is the only one that it does it too and it have been doing it since they first commented a while ago.
Leaving identical general comments without reading a hub is considered spam, and HP automated spam guard is just trying to make everybody's life easier.
You of course are free to manually unspam his/her comments
She/he's not leaving more than one comment...tht's the thing--they have never left more than one comment at all. I do have to go and unspam it --every single time and the approve it. Lgali is a hubber and has been for a while. I don't undersant why they would always come up with that particular hubber and she has written many hubs themselves. Why is Lgali on spamguard in the first place if they are a regular hubber?
LOL You didn't understand. S/he leaves those identical meaningless comments to everyone!
"great hub. write more!", along those lines.
This is usually done for a purpose of getting backlinks to own profile page and called comments spamming.
Lgali does leave the same comment on many hubs all the time. I have no problem with the comment and unspam it, but the system is going to monitor these comments and mark them as spam. This is good because if we had a hubber sign up and drop 200 identical comments with a link to their spam site these would not post to our hubs.
Not to complain but isn't that why we have capsha to build a hub----to keep spammers out?
To keep automated spammers out a capsha works, but anyone who wants to write 500 similar comments is entitled to do so. Honestly it does not bother me though if they want too.
I don't see any problems with the way Lgali posts those short but sweet notes. It just lets me know that they read my hub and liked it and doesnt' have a comment. ---or that they were just visiting their firends or fans hubs to show support of them. I don't mind that at all. I was just curious as to why it happens just with this one hubber.
Part of what gets a user's comments marked as spam is how the authors of the hubs where the comments are left mark them. And a lot of hub authors mark vapid comments as spam.
It's more useful to meaningfully contribute to a conversation rather than just run around saying the same thing to everyone.

I just had a comment in one of my hubs with a self-promotional link, which is against HubPages' terms of service. Of course I denied the comment. But then I went to that Hubber's profile and checked his activity. He had...

Hi,One of my Hubs has been showing comments from different people that are unrelated to my post. It seems to be entire discussions going on about another subject. Is anyone else seeing this?
