    It's awful how much spam ads I'm receiving in the comments section of some hubs.
    Do they really think it won't be noticed?
    Anyone else seeing this in their hubs...maybe you need to check..roll

      Yes, I'm having a problem with it right now too. I wish they'd cut it out.

    I don't really get it - I often get comments the spam filter has caught, but there is no links or spam in them.  Some are even from hubbers with the only link in their avatar, which goes to their profile.

      What that means is that you are getting the exact same message as that person has been posting to any Hubs they are commenting on.  If someone leaves identical messages on lots of Hubs, the filters label you a spammer.

        Ah!  I'll have to pay more attention, then - wish I could remember where the last one I approved was.  Thanks, Relache.

    I've been getting really generic comments like:

    "Wow your writing is really good. I agree with you on this topic and thank you for bringing the subject to light"

    I've done a Google search for some of these generic comments and they're dupes... Yeah dupe content isn't just for articles, who knew?

    But yeah, I'll delete those. Sounds harsh. But no way, Jose.
