I think they might all be from the same source, as each comment has just one or two wrongly transposed letters in a word, and I'm beginning to think I am looking at some coded message. I have approved some of them, but, as I got about 8 today, each one from a non-Hubber and each one with similar types of error, I feel very suspicious and wonder if it's some kind of hack that I don't know about. I don't know whether it's spam, as some (but not all) of the comments are quite normal apart from the spelling, quantity and fact that they are not from Hubbers.

I think you are right, but part of me thinks there is some sort of coded communication passing between the spammers....call me a conspiracy theorist if you like!
Perhaps, though It's hard to think what such a code might achieve. On the plus side, whoever has invented the comments is clearly quite colourful; one of the comments I received ended in "how many words can a word smith smith?" Move over, woodchuck!
I had my moderation switched on, so saw them before allowing them. But what would be the motive for making comments but wrongly spelling them? I still feel it could be some kind of code
Who knows, maybe it's a secret code. I've received emails with certain letters capitalized or colored that spell out spam items and where to get them. Perhaps these are done that way, but the color wasn't allowed in HP comments.
No, these are not accidental mis-spellings - most comments have everything spelt correctly except for one or two words with transposed letters which don't look like accidents. I think Philanthropy2012 may have the right answer
Well, they certainly seem to be doing the rounds. But you are wrong about me worrying that Google might consider them as spam which might affect my cred. I didn't even consider that Google would be involved. Yes, a couple of mine were off topic
