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. Where did all these comments come from. Some comments don't even make sense as they seem like they commented as a reply to some other comment which does not exist!!
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). Then report the comments as spam to help us track down and stop the spammers.
Maybe they came over from Bubblews, the land of irrelevant comments.
Hi K Kiss, me too have been finding so many comments some in languages I don't understand, some in English but with poor spelling, and some are very irrelevant to hub's content. For me I mark them as spam and delete them, I only approve comments that make sense.
Thanks a lot. My comments don't appear till approval so that's not a problem. Was just surprised by the sheer amount of ridiculous comments

The odd thing is, I am not notified of the comments and have no idea they are on the article until I receive another comment from someone else. Has anyone else seen this...

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 denied that "hubs are here for comments". No, they aren't. If they...

Why would anyone delete a comment on their hub?If I deleted a comment on one of my hubs, I would figure I am not good at dealing with people who might disagree with me. People can agree or disagree, it's a free world. If the comment was mean or nasty, well I'm not the one looking bad,...
