Are you getting many spam comments on your Hubs?
I had to delete many comments from my Hubs that were spam. Have you experienced spam as well?
I have and it's getting worse. I will never understand what the spammers get out of it. I delete them.
Unfortunately, occasionally SPAM comments are part of online writing.
You have the option to set each Hub such that comments must be approved before they show up.
You can also set them to only allow comments from logged in users.
I suggest setting your Hubs such that you have to approve comments.

You can then review the comments periodically and mark those SPAM that are.
The system then uses this information to help identify SPAM comments going forward so you can help other authors and yourself by marking SPAM comments.
That being said, it looks like there may have been a deluge of SPAM comments this last week and our engineering team is currently looking into how to address this going forward.
Matthew, I just want to thank you for looking out for us hubbers! Even though seeing a spate of spam lately, it's nowhere near what it is on regular WP blogs. Once had 110,000 comments of that ilk (thankfully had spam filters). Keep up the good work!

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...
