I just signed in today and found 19 comments most of them being random thank you comments about how happy they are to have found my blog. They didn't seem like spam as no links were there. Where did all these comments come from. Some comments don't even make sense as they seem like they commented as a reply to some other comment which does not exist!!
Hi K Kiss,
These may not have links or be promoting products, but comments like these are still considered spam. It's a good idea to change your comment settings to require your approval before comments appear on your Hubs (if you haven't already). Then report the comments as spam to help us track down and stop the spammers.

Hi K Kiss, me too have been finding so many comments some in languages I don't understand, some in English but with poor spelling, and some are very irrelevant to hub's content. For me I mark them as spam and delete them, I only approve comments that make sense.

I just had a comment in one of my hubs with a self-promotional link, which is against HubPages' terms of service. Of course I denied the comment. But then I went to that Hubber's profile and checked his activity. He had...
