Someone is getting their jollies by going through my hubs and posting silly and mis-spelt comments on them. Such a waste of my time having to read this stuff and delete it. Haven't people got better things to do? I sure do.
ah, you are not alone. I have 2 comments that aren't related to my hubs and I click spam, delete forever, just ignore them
I have the same problem... I had to edit feedback so all come to me first.
You can set your comments to moderation and/or set them so only registered users can comment.
Thanks, relache, I did that. I marked the last one as "spam" before I deleted it and it showed up here in the news feed. Go figure. I have always been set to approve before comments appear, but did not know about the registered user setting. Hopefully this will work - have had a dozen spams today alone. I always check and moderate, so the prankster is wasting his or her time as well as mine.
Mark them as spam but don't delete them. They can be blocked if they can track the IP address - see this post

I'd really appreciate if you share something alike if you come across in future for same. Does any one tell me how people have our mail address (data) to send us such messages? Do we have any control that our mail must not be considered for alike messages in future?
That is all I get anymore, misspelled spammy comments. Sometimes they will put in a name like Gary or something. I am getting to where I hate to even look at the comments.

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?

I just noticed that comments I delete from the 'comments' section on my accounts page are not being deleted from the actual hubs. One of my hubs gets spammed a lot by people posting links and email addresses for...

Is anyone else getting a surge in spammy comments in their Hubs? I seem to be getting at least one or two every day now. I only get the opportunity to check my comments once a day, and I delete the spammy...
