I have many hubs that have been spammed recently. What is with this? is there anything I can do to prevent further spam from this person? Whoever it is, always has a different name and non are hubpages writers. How does this happen and what can I do?
It happened to me a lot recently on one of my Christmas hubs. They kept appearing on it and speaking in another language but it appeared they were talking back and forth to each other. So strange. I knew what they were saying as they were speaking in French and I could translate it and it was not related really to the hub. So strange because I did not get notified that someone had commented on it until another hubber did some time later. I don't think that there is anyway to really stop it from happening.
It was the same with me Faith except it was English. Conversation with someone else about topic completely unrelated. I got notifications though on most of them. ANNOYING!!!
I changed my setting to only allow comments from registered users, that seems to take care of the spam.
Not sure if others mentioned this, but DO NOT delete spam comments. Don't approve them (whatever that button says - "Deny" or something) and then click on Spam, but don't delete it - the staff pulls the information and can use it to block abusers. But if you delete the comments, they can't track the IP addresses.
We all get cycles of spam comments (I get them on my HIV hubs, and sometimes some others). The ones I get are trying to get backlinks, so they include a link claiming some guy from Africa cured them.

I've never had this happen much before: readers (not fellow hubbers) are leaving strange comments that have nothing to do with the hub topic. They're not leaving links, so how are the comments a benefit to the...

I just had a comment in one of my hubs with a self-promotional link, which is against HubPages' terms of service. Of course I denied the comment. But then I went to that Hubber's profile and checked his activity. He had...
