    I have been getting a lot more spam than usual lately. I push to delete it, but later the same day or the next day, I have more... Is there a way to get rid of it 'for good'?

      What do you mean, getting a lot of spam? Like in your email? Or in your comments n fan mail?

      Nevermind, Relache just answered it.

    Be sure to mark the message/comment as spam before you hit delete.  This teaches the system filters to catch it automatically. 

    I always do that when I get spam, and I have to say I see very little of it in my comments, even when a big wave it hitting the whole site.

          the problem i have with finding pictures of me is, i am a photographer, so i typically have the camera-meaning i only have a few pictures of myself, and i think that 1/2 are from a camera phone and of low quality- I was thinking about starting to change my profile picture every week or so-just because i can (even if it is recirculating the same 5 or 6 pics)

    I've notice a lot more spam myself.  I have been getting emails and comment spam.  I have been deleting them but was wondering what is causing the increase.

    LOL I guess we share the same problem - while not professionally, I do all the picturing in my family LOL. But my 5 yo starting to catch up though, this pic has been shot by him. So you have a hope to get there eventually smile

    I find the uggs spam comments amusing, especially on hubs where these would not even apply.  The ugg commenter was really persistent, and I saw about five of their comments went to the spam box in an eight hour period smile.
