Each time that Lgali comments on one of my hubs it shows up as Spam and I know they aren't spam. This is the only one that it does it too and it have been doing it since they first commented a while ago.
Leaving identical general comments without reading a hub is considered spam, and HP automated spam guard is just trying to make everybody's life easier.
You of course are free to manually unspam his/her comments
She/he's not leaving more than one comment...tht's the thing--they have never left more than one comment at all. I do have to go and unspam it --every single time and the approve it. Lgali is a hubber and has been for a while. I don't undersant why they would always come up with that particular hubber and she has written many hubs themselves. Why is Lgali on spamguard in the first place if they are a regular hubber?
LOL You didn't understand. S/he leaves those identical meaningless comments to everyone!
"great hub. write more!", along those lines.
This is usually done for a purpose of getting backlinks to own profile page and called comments spamming.
Lgali does leave the same comment on many hubs all the time. I have no problem with the comment and unspam it, but the system is going to monitor these comments and mark them as spam. This is good because if we had a hubber sign up and drop 200 identical comments with a link to their spam site these would not post to our hubs.
Not to complain but isn't that why we have capsha to build a hub----to keep spammers out?
To keep automated spammers out a capsha works, but anyone who wants to write 500 similar comments is entitled to do so. Honestly it does not bother me though if they want too.
I don't see any problems with the way Lgali posts those short but sweet notes. It just lets me know that they read my hub and liked it and doesnt' have a comment. ---or that they were just visiting their firends or fans hubs to show support of them. I don't mind that at all. I was just curious as to why it happens just with this one hubber.
Part of what gets a user's comments marked as spam is how the authors of the hubs where the comments are left mark them. And a lot of hub authors mark vapid comments as spam.
It's more useful to meaningfully contribute to a conversation rather than just run around saying the same thing to everyone.

How does one know whether a comment left is spam related or not, other than the obvious?Other than the obvious, when one goes to a hubber's profile page, one can tell if it is solely spam; however, if it is not obvious,...

I've been seeing a number of what I call "promotional" comments lately from new users. They're not negative and actually read quite well. However, at the end of the comment, there's a "I love this...

I just had a comment in one of my hubs with a self-promotional link, which is against HubPages' terms of service. Of course I denied the comment. But then I went to that Hubber's profile and checked his activity. He had...

This has been discussed a number of times, but I think it's time to bring it up again because lately I've been denying loads of comments that I view as spam. And, just now, I've been told by someone whose comments Ive...
