    alright, this REAAAAAALY annoys me. I've had to delete a few comments just in the past days from when people advertise their hubs on mine. They put things like...

    "hey nice hub, want to know another way to do (whatever my hubs on), just check out (their hubs link) its so great !"

    Is this even allowed ? and don't people see that its rude to do that...or am I just being harsh.

      I don't think it's allowed, but there's not much to be done except marking the comments as spam.

      I delete those too.  big_smile  Well, first I check to see where they go or if it's even relevant most aren't so delete.  Too bad too cause sometimes I like the comment, just not the link.

      Only if you allow it.

      I delete the comment or I mark them as spam.

    Yes you can set comments so they don't appear unless you approve them.  When you get SPAM then mark it as such and it will be deleted.  Occasionally people post a hub link which is genuinely helpful in which case I allow it.

    If it is a hubber then you can also flag them to Hubpages staff.  Often you will also get spam from none hubbers.  Just delete it - the internet is full of spammers unfortunately!

    I get this all the time on my healthy eating and weight loss hubs. As of yet, no one has posted a link to a helpful website, rather adsense sites designed to earn money that have no helpful information or even damaging information. But, I suppose that is the nature of the internet.

    It is really frustrating; I totally understand where you are coming from!

    Thankfully, HP puts all your comments in one place when you log in, otherwise, it'd be really difficult to keep up with all the spam.

    I've had some of those, and I'm not thrilled with them.  I may have let a couple stay posted but usually don't.  I think sometimes it's more that people don't really know "etiquette".

    I'm sure I've had some people advertising on my comments capsules who aren't on HP, and I just delete those, but not Hubbers...yet.

    They shouldn't even be called hubbers- they're hubbits (hobbits).
