Question about Spam Comments

    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!

      Same here.

      As a result I went through every one of my hubs to check them all. But it was only two or three hubs that had this problem.

    Thanks Marisa,

    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. smile

    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.
