    I have many Hubs where the comments are of the following type: 

    "I want to make a good friend .I'm seeking a good and better friend or my life partner who is sweet ,beautiful and better for me and i for her .0923007989323"

    Now,what I want to know is should I delete these, as spam, or should I leave them up to help out these people who obviously are seeking to find friends by putting up their telephone numbers/fax numbers etc. ?

    I don't care myself, but I don't with Google to consider these types of comments as spam.

    So should I leave them up or let delete them?

      It only affects them, if they are putting their personal contact info(email, phone no. etc.) in comments.

    People can put their urls up all they want ...HP has a 'no follow' tag so they are useless wink do you really want to be holding a spam sign on your hub? tongue lol

    I checked out the hub you are referring to and those are most definitely spam comments and only one is actually from an actual hubber.

    I don't know that Google would penalize you, but I think it makes your hub look bad. Also, they are likely added for disengenous purposes, so I would suggest deleting them and marking them as spam.

    I would be interested in knowing if they all come from the same IP...
