Since IP addresses can be tracked via IT's security network, isn't there a way that these darn Spell-casters be blocked if so many of their messages are reported as spam - even though it is a guest posting?
Or perhaps for guest posters: a message from Hubpages that says: Your IP address is xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx and THAT is tracked.
Right now I cannot report spammer to hubpages with repeated postings of spam regarding:
firstname.lastname@example.org - I had three posting yesterday on one hub that is listed under HUB category "Relationship Problems and Advice" - an evergreen sub-section.
Once an IP address has a history of spamming - that IP address should be blocked from commenting. Maybe find out from at least which country all this voodoo spell casters are coming from.
I found zero records on lordkalifat @ http://www.stopforumspam.com/.
HubPages will do blocking automatically, but it only works on registered users. Try changing the settings for he comment capsules the spammers are hitting to registered users only.
OK, I'll figure that one out . Thankx
"Only signed-in users may post comments"
We do have a mechanism to block by IP if enough people mark the comments as SPAM. It looks like you have marked most of the comments as such, but continuing to do so for SPAM comments in the future helps to mark them for you and other users.
It appears that the system is working as designed, so I'm going to move this thread out of Bugs, but will continue to monitor it.
I got a Spell Caster just yesterday. Filter didn't catch it. I did notice that the email address wasn't hyperlinked.
The comments are being posted from multiple IP addresses, so the only way to make the filters work is to label each as SPAM. Once an IP is labeled by enough people, we can catch them, but there is no way to tell that a new IP is posting SPAM until it is marked.

Hi,I got a notice from Hubpages stipulating that my article looks good enough to be moved to a niche site, however, they require me to make some changes for it to qualify to be published on that network. The editor said...
