What is it with these people? Just had no less than 5 comments on different hubs, all totally unconnected with the subject, and all making no sense to me.
When I logged in, I thought, "Great, some traffic at last", but when I read this garbage I was really disappointed!
Rant over. :-(
Hey, at least someone is paying attention to your Hubs! hahaha! I don't get real OR spam comments. It's like I'm invisible. But my own sites are beginning to get notice, so that makes up for the invisibility on HP.
I had the same experience on my hubs a week ago.
I traced the IPs and they all came from Venezuela.
Sorry this happened to you! Make sure you report spam comments like these. It helps us track down and block the spammers more quickly.
Thanks Christy, I'll try to remember to report them next time!
How do I report spam?
I have been attack with spam tonight, not HubPage members from the internet.
Are there any filters to stop this, I thought this happen on WordPress not here.
Just mark them as spam, but don't delete, so that the team can have a look.
Thanks, that means you click the deny button, is that correct?
Thanks I did click the deny button but not the spam button, before I read your reply.
Just checked out the spam button that I didn't click, but all comments where gone.
Next time (I hope there won't be another time) I will know what to said. I appreciate your help.
How do you deal with the spammers that attack WordPress?
Hi Christy, is checking Spam in the choices underneath the comment enough to report this or do we have to do more?
Had the same thing happen to me a few weeks ago, on like 6 or 7 hubs and comments were total bull. So annoying, I got excited thinking people wanted to actually comment on my hubs, but no
Ah well, at least I'm not the only one. I think these comments must be made by bots - three of them were from the same IP address.
I had a flurry of spam comments a couple weeks back. I clicked the spam button but did NOT then click the delete button on every one of them. I believe deleting them after clicking the spam button may negate the spam button (HP can't follow up if they are deleted-- I know, it's not intuitive). Anyway, after a week or so I stopped getting spam comments.
The same thing happened to me yesterday...mosty on hubs that hadn't had much traffic recently. All guest users...none of the comments were related to the hubs. I reported all as spam..lot of good that will do though I imagine.
Haven't had any since that one lot, and I didn't report them as spam, just deleted them. Next time, I'll report them.

Hi,One of my Hubs has been showing comments from different people that are unrelated to my post. It seems to be entire discussions going on about another subject. Is anyone else seeing this?

Just in the past 10 minutes or so I've already gotten 3 spam comments, all on the same hub! And whenever I delete one, it seems another immediately comes up!I'm sure that when I wake up tomorrow (it's almost 1 in the morning now) I'll have many more to delete. Ugh, is there a way to stop these spam...

I just noticed that comments I delete from the 'comments' section on my accounts page are not being deleted from the actual hubs. One of my hubs gets spammed a lot by people posting links and email addresses for 'quack' healthcare. I have clicked the 'spam' button and then clicked...

when we flag a comment in one of our hubs as spam, how long does it take for hubpages to log the event for future reference? can we delete the comment forever as soon as it is marked as spam or should we leave the comment unpublished until such times as hubpages logs the event to help prevent...

I started getting a few spammy comments a few days ago. I posted a thread and someone suggested changing my comment settings to allowing only signed in users being allowed to comment and approval before they were published. So I changed my settings. Today the spam was even worse, took me a half...
