Hi everyone there are a couple of spammers on hupages as i write this , trying to add links to every travel related hub in the comments boxes.....jimmy
may start using other names
As Misha mentioned we nofollow the links in the comments, so that the spammers get little value from their effort. However in cases like this one, we will also block them by ip address, and of course, mark all their comments as spam so that they don't appear and don't have to be moderated individually by the hub's author.
Lol I was wondering what nofollow was. Thanks for clearing it up for me. Hopefully these spammers get discouraged and leave soon. Though I don't blame them for targeting HubPages - there's alot of traffic here. Is it possible the spammers may start phishing for peoples passwords? Like on MySpace people have their password phished and then either everyone on their friends list is sent a comment or their profile is edited to include an invisible linked div element.
