A hub I just commented on responded that my comment came through as spam. Does anyone know why this happens?
She wrote some poetry and I read it and liked it. It was a beautiful little poem so I just said thanks for sharing and that I liked it.
Why would this happen?
I noticed that on a question I posted in the answer section. A person made a very nice comment and I was notified that it was spam. I had to click on not spam for the comment to go through which it finally did.
relache is correct, tw6852. Multiple similar, short, very general comments are often recognized as spam, even if they are written with good intentions. It's a good idea to add a bit of detail to your comments (like mentioning what you liked about the Hub). Detailed comments and feedback are more useful to the Hubber and less likely to be mistaken for spam.
If you make very generalized comments (usually just a few words) and make the same comment on multiple hubs, the system will tend to classify those comments as spam.
Making genuine comments that actually discuss the hub subject or engage with comments by others is how to avoid being filtered as a repetitive "nice hub!" spammer.

I published my first hub today. The first comment I got remarked that my hub was funny. It's not. I can see that maybe a scan of the first paragraph might lead a casual reader to think that the hub may be going in an...
