I don't know how to go about flagging another hubber, but this person:
just left a completely spurious comment and a bunch of links to unrelated hubs on one of mine. When I go to their profile page, I notice they have left a LOT of unapproved comments on other hubs. What is the procedure for stopping that?

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?

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 can we delete the comment forever as soon as it is marked as spam or should we leave the comment unpublished until such times as hubpages logs the event to help prevent...
