I just got a strange comment on my newest hub which has given me the options of 'spam' or 'delete forever.' There's a link on it, but my gut tells me to simply delete it and not click on it.
Is it more helpful to the HP community to label it spam?
It's probably better to label it as spam. You never know what this is, and there's been alot in the media recently about receiving links in messages on facebook, myspace, twitter and etc. Never open them. I would label it as spam..
What kind of strange comment Laurel?
I had one woman post a comment on my Alcoholism/Anxiety hub that "outright" pissed me off, but I just left it there. Some people's stupidity should just be left out there for the whole world to see!
Hit SPAM and send it back into the deepest darkest depths of spamworld
Is the comment relevant to your hub? If not or if it doesn't make sense, then delete it. I usually delete the ones with links within the body of the comment unless I feel like the link is relevant to the hub.
I have no patience for spammers or scammers.
I dont even think twice, the spam comments are so obvious they are gone in seconds. Thank our lucky stars that iy isnt as bad here as some other places many of us tend to visit.
I'm pretty sure that after you mark it as spam, you can still delete it forever. I can't remember....
If it is not relevant to your hub then delete it. I often delete comments that have links in them.
Sometimes people just look at your author score and go leave an irrelevant comment on your hub just to get you to fan/follow them. If I get a comment about someone disagreeing with me I will leave it.
I recently got a comment from some random due asking me about what size bra he should wear on a hub about bras, but I deleted it because I really didn't know how to take him
Including a URL that is unrelated to the topic is unquestionably spam.
Twitter has a scam that is rampant throughout the network when you click the link it somehow gets your username and password and spreads the disease through Direct messages using your account. If it doesn't feel right Spam it..

Hi,One of my Hubs has been showing comments from different people that are unrelated to my post. It seems to be entire discussions going on about another subject. Is anyone else seeing this?

This has been discussed a number of times, but I think it's time to bring it up again because lately I've been denying loads of comments that I view as spam. And, just now, I've been told by someone whose comments Ive...
