I have many Hubs where the comments are of the following type:
"I want to make a good friend .I'm seeking a good and better friend or my life partner who is sweet ,beautiful and better for me and i for her .0923007989323"
Now,what I want to know is should I delete these, as spam, or should I leave them up to help out these people who obviously are seeking to find friends by putting up their telephone numbers/fax numbers etc. ?
I don't care myself, but I don't with Google to consider these types of comments as spam.
So should I leave them up or let delete them?
People can put their urls up all they want ...HP has a 'no follow' tag so they are useless do you really want to be holding a spam sign on your hub? lol
I checked out the hub you are referring to and those are most definitely spam comments and only one is actually from an actual hubber.
I don't know that Google would penalize you, but I think it makes your hub look bad. Also, they are likely added for disengenous purposes, so I would suggest deleting them and marking them as spam.
I would be interested in knowing if they all come from the same IP...

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...

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?

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...

Normally, I approve 99% of all comments left on my hubs. But twice today, and once yesterday, there were comments left, all by "anonymous," that I simply denied because they were just way out of line.Not demeaning, offensive, hateful, or anything like that...just WAY off topic.In...

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,...
