I am receiving so many comments on my hubs since last two days. When I checked, they have nothing to do with my hub and they simply appear to be SPAM. Please try to do something.
It's not unusual to get spam comments, and they do come in cycles (seems that way to me, at least). This has come up before on the forums, and (not meaning to answer on behalf of the admins), one of the admins reinforced the benefit of marking it as "Spam" in your comments section - but do NOT delete it. They do research spam comments and can block IP addresses.
That's the good news. The 'other' news is that spammers change IP addresses more often than I change shoes, and they'll often be back - but HP's action does discourage them, and things seem to quiet down a bit after we flag them and let the admins check it out.
So - mark it as Spam, don't approve it to be published (the spam comments usually contain links), and don't delete it. It will eventually go away on your list of comments, but HP needs the track record there in order to investigate it.
Hope that helps?
Spam comments irritate me. Those that are written in languages that I do not understand does not make matters easier for me too. My vow is to try and comment in English.

Are spam comments supposed to show up in our feed? I've never noticed them before, but all of these latest spam comments are appearing in my feed on the home page, and I've received a notification email about three of them (even though they were correctly marked as spam by HubPages).

Usually the first thing I do when I log on here is to check out the 'New' hubs to see what's going on. I also usually end up flagging spammy hubs along the way. The thing is that the spammers seem to be following the rules, so I'm not even really sure whether to flag them anymore or...
