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

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 informative comments. I don't want to throw the baby out with the bathwater.What makes...

we all know comments effect mind of new readers who are unknown to our previous works, now the question is will you approve bad reaction of your readers on your hubs?dont you think people should know fair things about your hub not only good things but also other kind of responses?

This might be my last forum post because I am tired. I can't be wasting my time beating a dead horse.HP is a business and they need to start treating their business more seriously. They need a task force to sit and brain storm about how to keep spammers out in the first place.I know that I have...
