Is anyone else suddenly being bombarded with spam comments?
I've never had a problem with spam comments on HubPages before, now suddenly I'm getting slammed with them. I wondered if anyone else is having this problem?
I've had a few before and they did seem to kind of come close together. I moderate all comments now and since then the problem has been greatly reduced. Unfortunately, spammers will go wherever they can find a place to do their thing.. aggravating.
Yes, check the forum in the hubber's hangout; there is a thread about this there.
Normally, I get the occasional comment from non-users that are odd or that i can't figure out what the poster's point/intent is, however today, I've been spam-bombed on my resume related hubs. I'm trying to see the bright side of this: More views and traffic to that hub, but really, I'm just annoyed by it.
I just got a long, rambling SPAM comment on one of my movie Hubs that had nothing to do with the topic at hand so I deleted it.
Not slammed, but just got one that was mostly question marks with some scattered unintelligable words.
I've had exactly the same experience. Like lovesleftovers and like Ms Dee - loads of questionmarks and odd words most of which seem to be plugging some traders of hand bags. They are mostly recognised as spam which is good, but I wonder if there's a quick way to get rid of them, or do we just have to go through each one to delete it. Will the system automatically delete them, and if so, after how long? I will check out the forum as well.
Yes, I was just about to ask this question myself. My most trafficed Hubs are getting a bunch of these. I'm just deleting them, but it is annoying. Does anyone know why this is happening?
There must be a new spammer...I'm getting quite a few that read like political reporting, but are basically jibberish...lots of political keywords, as it were. The filters need to be IP address oriented rather than text oriented, methinks...since there are so many, it hast to be a 'bot' that is spewing them out.

I noticed yesterday that I started getting some spammy comments on my hubs. This morning when I woke up I had an inbox full of them. The weird thing is some of them are almost intelligible and have to do with the topic...

I've never had this happen much before: readers (not fellow hubbers) are leaving strange comments that have nothing to do with the hub topic. They're not leaving links, so how are the comments a benefit to the...
