    A couple of the comments to one of my hubs have been flagged as spam. I'm not sure why that happened or how it could happen. Does anyone have any info on this?

    Thanks Yall!

    We pass all incoming comments through a spam filter and automatically mark some as spam (currently about 4%).  The filter isn't perfect, some spam gets through and some legitimate comments are identified as spam -- but in general it works pretty well.  You can always check what comments have been identified as spam on the my account comments page, and you can "allow" them from that page as well.

    If you're anxious to see every single comment that comes in, it would be a good idea to check there every so often.

    BTW -- It is no negative reflection on you or your hubs if they happen to receive a "spam" comment.  In fact it is usually just an indication that they are getting some traffic.
