Hubs getting flooded with useless, pointless, random (apparently) comments, anyone experienced this?
I've been lately getting flooded with useless random comments on many of my Hubs. Has this happened to you before? Is it a new thing? I am a bit surprised as I'm here for quite some time now and this is my first. Which, to me, is not surprising giving that the topics that I write about are not trendy nor pop up in most common web searches. I think....
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.
I have that same experience the past 2 days. I just did not approve it and marked it as spam.
i think these new useless comments are people flooding in from bubblews, they have no where to go now, so decided to jump around leaving stupid baseless comments. I get these too here and bubblews.
I had that a few weeks ago ... i checked the IP address and it went to some content writing login page.
Just some spammers... mark them as spam so hubpages can deal with it.
No hasn't happened to me and if it did I would deny the comment.

Hi,One of my Hubs has been showing comments from different people that are unrelated to my post. It seems to be entire discussions going on about another subject. Is anyone else seeing this?

I've noticed that I keep seeing HOTDs that fit the niche sites yet weren't chosen for the niche sites because they still have HubPages URLs. Why not save some time in the selection process for the niche sites and mine...
