Is anyone else getting spammed in their Hub comments?
I've received about a dozen nonsense SPAM comments since yesterday that were utter nonsense.
Yes, in a major way. I have been deleting them. I think the best thing to do is just delete them and ignore them. Don't by any means follow their links. There is no telling where they lead and what kind of viruses or malware you could be infected with.
Yes, I have and it's obnoxious. I asked this very question the other day and several other hubbers confirmed that they too were getting a lot of spam comments on their hubs. Fortunately, the system is recognizing them as spam, but it's still necessary to go through them individually to delete them forever.
Yes absolutely! I got well over 50 to 60 yesterday and more today. I am spending forever deleting them. Very annoying.
me too-- I've had a gazillion in the last 48 hours or so-- totally spammy links by obviously non native English speakers-- some of the spam seems to be in German or Dutch as well. I went though my spam folder and deleted them all. ( to do this go to comments and select spam rather than unmoderated and start deleting) I was amazed at how many there were.
This too will pass, I guess:-)
I've been fortunate so far, this hasn't happened to me. I'm sure hoping my luck holds out and it doesn't start since that would be very annoying and frustrating. Sorry for the rest of you that are having to deal with this problem though. I hope HubPages catches the culprit and stops them quickly.
Yes, so many i've got, i have been deleting them last evening.
I guess I've been lucky. I see lots of questions about people getting spammed and I haven't gotten any spam in the past 2 weeks or so.

I just noticed that comments I delete from the 'comments' section on my accounts page are not being deleted from the actual hubs. One of my hubs gets spammed a lot by people posting links and email addresses for 'quack' healthcare. I have clicked the 'spam' button and then clicked...

Is anyone else getting spam messages on their hubs?In the past couple of hours, I received three comments on 3 random hubs of mine. The comments have nothing to do with my hubs. I looked up the ip addresses. Two were from the Netherlands. One was from Qatar.

Is anybody else getting a bunch of spamming comments advertising drugs with a link to a website? I am deleting like 9 of them a day for the past 3 days. I have reported them as spam.

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?

Do you feel bad deleting comments?I don't mean removing comments that disagree, as it is important to have many viewpoints - I mean comments that are just really low quality, are a pain to read, or feel like spam.

Why would anyone delete a comment on their hub?If I deleted a comment on one of my hubs, I would figure I am not good at dealing with people who might disagree with me. People can agree or disagree, it's a free world. If the comment was mean or nasty, well I'm not the one looking bad,...
