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.
No, not on any hubs. However, just received one on a forum post about joining a cult and what all you get if you join! Crazy
Yes, I have. Spam is out there. I've received some bitter trollish comments too.
Hi Randi, yes, I've had a few spams on my hubs. They were very general and each contained a code at the end.
Over the years I have had quite a few spam messages on a hub about loved one´s in spirit. They are very long comments, but all promoting what comes across as a witch doctor would you believe. I have hit the delete button on them all but as far as I know this hasn´t taken them off my hubs.
i still get those spam unrelated comments in my old hubs, just click spam or delete forever
I can't answer the question, however, peachy, where is the spam or delete forever button please?

Ugh, is there a way to stop these spam...

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!

For the last couple of days, notifications of new comments on my hubs or the hubs/Questions I'm following aren't appearing in the "Notifications" drop down OR in my email until as much as 8 hours after they occur.This delay means I'm going to hubs or Q&As to read a "new"...

Anyone else getting strange very long comments on your Hubs.....that are unrelated to the article and about something altogether different? This particular Hubber has hit the same Hub twice with these diatribes.
