      I used to ignore it now I have started to delete them especially if it has nothing to do with the article written.

    i would say spam cause people are just trying to advertise their site, which isn't allowed

    I got the exact same thing this morning.  The status said spam so I deleted it.  Didn't want to take any chances.

    I leave the short comments if the name is hyperlinked to another URL but if the comment is short like that and has hyperlinks added I delete them as spam. 

    Now if there is a value added comment that has a link in it also, I usually leave it but I follow the link first to see where it leads just in case its crap.

    Always delete the pure spam that has nothing to do with my hub.

    I mark really short comments like that as spam and then delete them.  Most often the people who do that are just trying to get backlinks and are putting the exact same thing up on dozens of Hubs.
