Spam flooding my comment boxes!

    Help! If I could just figure out how to stop it: I have suddenly started gettiong multiple spams in the comment section of several hubs. I keep deleting them, but they're multiplying like rabbits. Do I need to report the senders?

      Everyone is getting them, there are several forum threads about it. Do you moderate your comments? All of the spam I have gotten in the past two days has been caught by the spam filters and not posted.

        Mine did not go public but it is so annoying to have to deal with them.

      No need to report them.  Just delete them when they arrive.  You can do that by checking your spam comments.  Each comment when I checked on mine has a different IP.

        These spammers need something better to do. Too much time on their hands.

          It doesn't take them any time, it's all automated.

      That is up to Hubpages to figure out how to stop them.

    Thanks guys. I had 12 more this morning - and I simply deleted them. I do moderate my comments...I was mostly concerned with the fact that this started on one hub, then two, and now three. Try as they might, I can push the delete button all day if need be!

    The first time I saw an email notice that I'd gotten comments on a few of my hubs that aren't doing that well, I thought, "Yay!"

    Now I wish they'd leave them the heck alone. Just spam. Yes, I can push the delete button all day but it's annoying, discouraging to think my hubs are only getting spam and it's a hassle.

    I do have to approve all comments before they're seen by others but again, for the reasons above.....can't HP do something to help us out?
