    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. smile

    You of course are free to manually unspam his/her comments smile

      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.

            I understand what you mean smile.  Lgali seems like a nice person to me.

    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.
