    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.

    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.
