What's the thinking behind that? Is it that they think the forums and chatrooms will be unmonitored today?
Some people can spam, without knowing that they are spamming.
What some people think is spam, might have a totally different meaning to someone else.
For example. I enjoy eating kentucky fried chicken.
Or, is this spam. I recommend eating at kentucky fried chicken
Spam. kentucky fried chicken dot com. or. KFC dot com.
I picked that, because I don't really care for it. It's greasy, and you don't get what you pay for. I went into one once, and there was only one guy doing everything. needless to say, I walked out of there and went to the restaraunt next door.
I have a donation ad at another website. I say in the ad that I do not give out my personal information, and I do not want to receive business deals or checks. Only Pay Pal donations.
I swear I get 10 emails a day from companies trying to get me to sign on to their money making schemes. People wanting my full contact information, even though I send them an email telling them I don't do that, it just opens me up for 10 more.
I don't mind someone spamming a link to their hub. but, when someone sends you 10 emails a week from the same company using a different name. That's irritating. I consider that spam.
I guess when you place yourself an a website that can be viewed by millions of people. You set yourself up for it. I'll never place an ad on that site again. I'll tell you that.

Someone is getting their jollies by going through my hubs and posting silly and mis-spelt comments on them. Such a waste of my time having to read this stuff and delete it. Haven't people got better things to do? I sure do.

I started getting a few spammy comments a few days ago. I posted a thread and someone suggested changing my comment settings to allowing only signed in users being allowed to comment and approval before they were published. So I changed my settings. Today the spam was even worse, took me a half...

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 commenters? Strange!

Help! If I could just figure out how to stop it: I have suddenly started gettiong multiple spams in the comment section of several hubs. I keep deleting them, but they're multiplying like rabbits. Do I need to report the senders?
