What should I do about spam?
I have received today about fifteen spam comments on my hubs, one hub had several exact same comments that were just a series of question marks or other symbols. I was wondering if anyone else had this same problem or if I need to follow up with someone from HubPages on an official capacity.
Usually, I'd say just delete them and ignore such things. If you got fifteen in one day, then I'd say contact the moderators and ask them to take a look. They can very easily identify who is doing it and suspend their account if all they are doing is creating havoc. The moderators here are quite good about handling these kinds of things.
Everyone has been getting them and everyone has been saying the spam filter has caught them. They caught all of mine. I can see them but they are not published. You can go under My account, hit comments and choose spam and then delete them forever.
I received one of those once-- a series of question marks in paragraph form. I wondered if it was someone using a non-Western type. Never did find out though.
I was going to post a question on spam and notice you have the same problem. Today, I have a number of spam comments all over my hubs. I wonder what caused that?
Hey I got two of the spam comments ( with lot of links), the spam filter caught it and what left for me is to simply delete them forever.
HubPages is experiencing a site wide spam attack. There is a thread in the forums where a discussion is taking place, and you can read info on what to do too.

Is there some way that messages caught by the automated spam filters can be blocked from the feed page? The most annoying part is that even once deleted forever, they continue to show up there.
