i am suddenly getting spam comments on almost everyone of my Hub articles that have nothing to do with my Hub topic. They appear to be from new or foreign Hubbers. What can i do about this besides click the Spam button and delete forever? It's a lot like a game of Whack-A-Mole
You should report them, especially if you're getting a lot of comments from the same people.
ok, i will address my own problem since no one else commented. I went in and disabled comments on my Hubs until i can figure out what is going on with the above problem. Is anyone else having this issue?
Most of us have had this problem at one time or another. Set your comments so that you need to approve them before they are posted. Eventually the spam comments stop anyways.
Also, don't take it personally. Spammers neither know nor care who you are; they just see an attractive blank space in your comment section that they want to fill with a hit-and-run advertisement for whatever sleazy thing they are selling.
thank you Barbara, i did have my comments set for approval before they posted. now i have them set for "no additional comments" at this time. that way i can change it back.
Kylyssa, thank you for your response too. the ones i received mostly weren't selling anything but leaving cryptic messages or off topic ramblings almost as if they were talking to each other via my comments sections. Weird!!
I had nine spammers this morning---I just deleted them. Kids out for the holidays probably and just acting silly.
It will get on your last nerve if you let it---but I just delete them and forget it.
You have a wonderful rest of the day.
Had at least fifteen spammers today and all spammed as guests. Just went in and checked them off as spam manually. It happens from time to time but I have not had spam in so long I was shocked by it.
Your discussion is very timely; my hubs have just been hit. Can't report as each spammer is different, none belong to hub pages. I just delete, little else I can do!

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?

This might be my last forum post because I am tired. I can't be wasting my time beating a dead horse.HP is a business and they need to start treating their business more seriously. They need a task force to sit and...

Normally, I approve 99% of all comments left on my hubs. But twice today, and once yesterday, there were comments left, all by "anonymous," that I simply denied because they were just way out of line.Not...
