Are we supposed to get notification of comments that are classified as Spam?
I only just noticed that we can now "delete forever" comments, so I went to the Comments section of my account and applied the "Denied" filter so I could delete them. I'd never used the filters before, so out of curiosity I selected "Spam" - and discovered a bunch of comments in there, that I had never seen!
The majority were perfectly good comments and I do apologise to the commenters, who must have thought I was ignoring their comment!
I just went to check my spam comments - I had only one - and it clearly was *not* spam. I think this is something HP staff should look into.
hehe, marissa, your post made me go look too and I didn't have any. Yay!
but you know, if you hadn't mentioned it, I wouldn't even have looked.
I had to look too. Unfortunately, I had loads of them. I didn't even know about this. There was one real comment in there though, so thanks. I will have to check there more often.
I've never been notified of spam comments. I just go take a look once in awhile.

I hope Robin will come by and comment on this one.

I don't want to throw the baby out with the bathwater.What makes...

Would there be a way to notify us of ALL comments and let us decide if they are spam or not? Just today I checked an older hub and noticed 2 comments...one 11 months ago and the other 10 months ago. The first had left a link to another website on the same subject and the second had...

Question about links left in commentsSometimes I have people that leave really nice comments that pertain to my hub but at the end of the comment they will end it like this: come visit us @ link.If I approve the comment because they actually commented on my hub does the link hurt my hub score or...

Hello, I found three comments to two different hubs that were already marked as spam when I went to see them. At first I did not notice, until the hubber that left one of the comments left another one saying "sorry you didn't like my comment, good luck to you"I felt so bad, I thought I...

I have a hub with more than 1,200 comments. That's great, but the sheer volume is making it hard for me to comment on my own hub. It takes forever! I've thought about removing many of the comments, but won't this hurt the hub's position with Big G? It ranks very well now. Also, most of the comments...
