I have a "comment" on my breast cancer hub from "Mike", with no substanative value: "good work, help me alot" w/ a link to a blogspot blog, fashionlip. Clicking Mike does not go to a HP bio, it to goes to fashionlip. Opening page has a bathing suit clad woman with breasts as big as my head. I guess that's how he wound up on my page, but hardly the same context for breasts.
I know I need to "deny" the comment. Do I need to report it?
After you've clicked on Deny, click on Spam. That will flag the user and/or IP address (if they're not signed up and you've allowed comments by non-members).
Thank you darkside. I've definitely read some of your stuff. I'm on a brief reprieve from reading right now. I tend to read myself silly on things I'm interested in. As a new hubber, sometimes I think my head will spin. Doubt I'm alone on that.
I don't recall an opportunity where I could choose one way or the other on allowing comments from non HP members.
I clicked SPAM. My choices are now "not spam" and "delete forever".
While in edit mode for the hub, click on edit on the Comment capsule.
You can turn on or off this bit: Only signed-in users may post comments
Remember when my hubberscore was bottomrock and everyone was giving me all sorts of advice. Someone said remove all the spammy comments. I deleted all the comments that contain a link, unmindful where the link is headed, inside or outside of hubpages. I simply deleted everything with a clickable link inside the comment.
Did I do anything wrong there? Thanks for another helpful advice.

I just had a comment in one of my hubs with a self-promotional link, which is against HubPages' terms of service. Of course I denied the comment. But then I went to that Hubber's profile and checked his activity. He had...

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?
