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.

Have you received any spam comments on Hubpages?I've been on HP for a long time and this morning was the first that I ever got a spam message to one of my hubs. I denied her comment and deleted her forever, but nonetheless, it was still disturbing. The commenter tried to direct me to another site...

Just in the past 10 minutes or so I've already gotten 3 spam comments, all on the same hub! And whenever I delete one, it seems another immediately comes up!I'm sure that when I wake up tomorrow (it's almost 1 in the morning now) I'll have many more to delete. Ugh, is there a way to stop these spam...

For the last 2 weeks, I am facing a problem with HP that my hubbers score is dropping very quickly. I have published 37 articles. All of them are featured. Having good scores as well. I update those articles on daily basis. I am trying to make it error-free as well but don't know why I don't have...

What means more to you - social network sharing, HP accolades, comments, or voting up?When you write a hub, which response affects you the most: comments, social network sharing, HP accolades, or voting up?

I'm thrilled to receive notice recently that this hub may be featured. The article was originally created over a decade ago, same as most of my hubs. I've been focused on updating them all these past few months, over 60 hubs and so far a little over half of them are featured. This one is about a...
