    My hub http://hubpages.com/hub/Help_Find_Madeleine_McCann is under a spam attack, I have marked the messages as spam, but as soon as I remove them they are replaced, I wouldn't mind but the spammers linking to a site asking for donations, that are nothing  to do with the official Maddie fund.........jimmy

    Jimmy, have you changed it so comments won't show until you approve them?

    This sucks.  What a bummer for you...especially with that hub of all hubs.

    I blocked the person responsible by ip address yesterday.  It was actually a fairly tame attack by spam standards.  Hopefully the problem went away Jimmy.

      Good job Paul. We can do without spammers on HubPages or anywhere on the Internet for that matter.

    thanks guys it seems to have stopped now i have also changed the comments Stacie as you suggested.....jimmy
    Paul I went about it the wrong way at first, i deleted them without marking them as spam first,
    there were about 20 of them, that I removed.
