Okay, why is it that comments from some of my best friends here at hubpages. . . . . .come in...
saying "not spam," with the option of "delete forever?" These are my friends, and the only comments that I will delete are comments that insult my Mother,(don't attempt that, srsly) and comments that really ARE spam.
The computer doesn't know who your friends are. Some messages, particularly those who are not registered hubpages users may be spam. The computer is simply asking you if it is and do you want to delete it. Why this should be an issue escapes me.
i find the button quite handy- when i reply to comments I have been known to push the button twice and therefore I use the delete forever button to remove duplicate comments- there may have been the odd time where i was over zealous and left duplicate comments and I am sure other hubbers would hit the delete button on the second one
Wesman Todd Shaw, there is no reason to assume HubPages members or even mutual followers cannot post spam. There can always be a comment that you don't like and the software should provide a means to delete it or mark it as spam.

And whenever I delete one, it seems another immediately comes up!I'm sure that when I wake up tomorrow (it's almost 1 in the morning now) I'll have many more to delete. Ugh, is there a way to stop these spam...

Why do so many hubbers delete comments just because they disagree?I see this a lot particularly on hubs espousing things like Noahs flood, or the inerrancy of the bible. I don't delete opposing comments when I write about evolution - why cant these people deal with contradicting opinions. Is it...

After over a month of careful watching, here is what I have observed as an HP writer;1- My "reads" on HP are steady at 400+ daily.2- Google (US, AU, NE, UK, CA, etc) have all but abandoned my articles with a dramatic decrease in Google Traffic. 3- All of my other sources of traffic are...

<link snipped>While enjoying my tribute to ImKarn23, I've been dealing with a somewhat awkward sitituation. Someone who calls herself Diva43, left a hateful and horrible comment on my Hub about Imkarn23. This is a purely personal issue but after the many comments left afterwards, I decided to...
