    I'm getting a lot of spam comments all of a sudden--four just today. They're not showing up in my comments for moderation section, I see them when I look at the actual hub. Is there anything I can do about them?

    Set the preferences for comments to *moderate for approval* hmm then you will get a page where you can approve/deny them. smile you will find it in your *Comments* capsule. Hope that helps.

    I have been getting a lot, too. It was funny because one person posted a really rude comment about one of my articles, but yet was obviously trying to promote their business as their hyperlink...lol!

    p.s. Thanks Dame Scribe for the fruit pizza recipe!!! It looks really good...am going to try it this weekend! smile

      lol - This is where you are wrong. Everything can be linked to Viagra, just like Kevin Bacon smile

    lol. I've been seeing really weird spam posts in the forums, too. For example, someone wrote a comment about religion or something and then posted an external link. The thread, itself, had absolutely nothing to do with religion and was about food or something. You'd think they'd at least match up their comments with the topic. Oh well! lol

    Yeah, Hubpages nofollows external comments - so I'm not too sure why people would waste time typing things that are bound to get deleted anyway.  I simply don't get the mentality of a spammer...

    I wish people wouldn't spam Hubpages, it's really educational and there are a lot of people who put a lot of work into creating such great content.

    And a lot who don't...
