    One of my flagship hubs has been spammed with a 1,048 words spam comment with over 35 embedded URLS. The spam is from a spammer with a name â��pronFosseâ�� with IP address  111.142.164.215 Anyone else here getting this? 
    The spam comment included craps among them:
     
    www(dot)scarpetimberland-outlet(dot)net
    www(dot)hermes-outlet-uk(dot)net
    www(dot)timberlandstoreshoes(dot)net

    What a SHAME!!

    What a hassle, dwachira! Sorry about that. You're marking them all as spam, yes? That'll make it easier for us to automatically block any more that might be on their way...

    I subscribe to Akismet for my blog to prevent spammers and it does a great job. HubPages should consider enabling this for hubpages.
