I was looking through comments today on my Craft Fair Vendor hub and I found this comment near the bottom

I have my account set up where I have to approve all comments - and I definitely would not have approved this! I think someone may have come up with a workaround to post spam in hub comments and thought I should bring it to everyone's attention.
To see any spam comments on your Hubs you need to change the filter in the Comments section from 'unmoderated' to 'spam' as they only show up for you to view if you change the filter. They are still unapproved although you can see them if you look at the comments on a Hub (This is what I was told when I reported the same issue in the forum recently). Now I've started checking regularly for any spam using the Comments tab in My Account, because there were more spam comments than I was previously aware of, and now I can quickly delete them.
That is really awful and against the rules. Thanks I guess we all need to be extra watchful out there and report spam comments etc..when we come across them. Since we are a family friendly site it is good to get rid of those spammers asap...

Every time I write a Hub, I have to go into the comment module and checkmark "Must approve all comments". I would suggest that Hubpages make this checkmarked and enabled by default. I feel...

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...
