I just signed in today and found 19 comments most of them being random thank you comments about how happy they are to have found my blog. They didn't seem like spam as no links were there.

Hi K Kiss,
These may not have links or be promoting products, but comments like these are still considered spam. It's a good idea to change your comment settings to require your approval before comments appear on your Hubs (if you haven't already).

I hope Robin will come by and comment on this one. I have been going through all of my old comments and deleting any that don't add anything to the conversation, but some of my hubs have a ton of very useful and...
