Some mystery spammer keeps posting bubblews links on my account. It keeps saying it is a user with a different name, but I cannot even click on the person's name or see their profile. Although it is annoying, this is more of a warnign to others than anything. Watch out for spam comments on your hubs, as whoever this is keeps posting articles in hopes to redirect traffic from my hubs. If you find yourself a victim of this mystery spammer, make your comments only visable after approval.
Turn off pre-approval on your comments AND/OR set the comment capsules to only accept comments from site members. Sometimes one or the other works best, sometimes you need both.
Check your comment settings to make sure that you have to approve comments before they appear on your hubs.
That was the point of my post if you read the whole thing
Sorry, just realized how rude I came off.... I was just posting this to alert others to check their hubs if they DONT have the pre-approval setting. I do have that setting picked, so I have deleted the comments, but since they are spam links, they can be problematic to others who are unaware. It is definitely NOT a HP person, at least from what I can tell.
That's why I mentioned the option for setting a comment capsule to members only.
I don't have that setting active on all my Hubs, but for a few that seem to just draw more spammers, it is a nice extra option to reduce what I have to deal with.
Changing the comment setting to members only can be a good idea but then you may miss out on potentially great comments because the people who may want to leave these comments may not want to sign up to HP.

Hi All,When I first started I read a Hub or saw in the forum that it was frowned upon to add a self-promotional link to one of my hubs in another Hubbers comments section! For example a comment like:I like your...

Who do we report it to? I can flag a hub but not a profile?

I have been experiencing problems trying to post comments. When I finish writing the comment it doesn't post and the screen returns to the top of the hub. Anyone in my boat?

Hi,Hope this is not already answered somewhere, I did look around with no luck. If someone leaves a comment that is normal such as "interesting hub", why are they identified as a spammer over the approve/deny...
