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'?
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.
haha...you dont like it? Not as happy as the last one but it's still me
I liked the other one better, but looks like wsp likes this one - and spammers, too
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

Mmmmmmm lovely spam

Help! If I could just figure out how to stop it: I have suddenly started gettiong multiple spams in the comment section of several hubs. I keep deleting them, but they're multiplying like rabbits. Do I need to report the senders?

Normally, I approve 99% of all comments left on my hubs. But twice today, and once yesterday, there were comments left, all by "anonymous," that I simply denied because they were just way out of line.Not demeaning, offensive, hateful, or anything like that...just WAY off topic.In...

This has been discussed a number of times, but I think it's time to bring it up again because lately I've been denying loads of comments that I view as spam. And, just now, I've been told by someone whose comments Ive denied that "hubs are here for comments". No, they aren't. If they...

I just noticed that comments I delete from the 'comments' section on my accounts page are not being deleted from the actual hubs. One of my hubs gets spammed a lot by people posting links and email addresses for 'quack' healthcare. I have clicked the 'spam' button and then clicked...

I had a first yesterday. Somebody left spam as a comment. They were trying to sell clothing. Is this common? I denied the comment, so it wasn't a big deal. It was pretty annoying though.
