Spammy comments get allowed?
There is a comment just found by me on caloriebee.com/nutrition/Benefits of Orange Peels. It is not exactly a comment. It is a promotional post of an article by healthline365 posted some 8 months ago. They posted the entire article titled "22 Home remedies for acne & pesky pimples" and at the end given a link to their site for reading more of it and many other articles.
Why such comments are allowed and kept on such a new niche site of our hubpages? It will definitely degrade the image of our site and /or our writers. Can't you detect and remove it?
That is not a good practice agreed. Monitoring and deleting comments is by the Hubber for Hubs. They have to be read to do that. For HP to do the monitoring the software program would have to be rewritten. In that case then the Hubber loses all control of what they wish to allow. The software progam would have to be written as a yes / no question. In other words if 'any link' then is deleted no matter what the link is. Even if the Hubber wishes to put a link there themselves. I do not know how difficult it would be to rewrite the program. Probably not easy. So, it is not 'today' high on the list of priorities, but maybe on the back burner for another time.
Hi Venkatachhari M this is a good question I had people do that to me, and ignored their comment. I don't such acts should be allowed on HP. Anyone can do that here if that is allowed.
I've had this happen on my hubs too. It is against Hub Pages rules.

What happens if you don't moderate your own comments? I tend to forget then go in and do a bunch at once. But I was wondering if the failure to moderate them meant they couldn't be seen or weren't counted or something?

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...

I started getting a few spammy comments a few days ago. I posted a thread and someone suggested changing my comment settings to allowing only signed in users being allowed to comment and approval before they were published. So I changed my settings. Today the spam was even worse, took me a half...

In response to a challenge from Hubber Buildreps I wrote my latest hub. He challenged my existence as a true hubber, just because it has been a while since I posted. I wrote the post that he, and one other person requested and put the link to my post in his comments. What does he do but delete my...

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 apologize, but it seems a "Best" answer was chosen on my question when I did not choose it. I hope the HP Team can help me or someone can inform me why that happened! I noticed it via my phone and I knew that I did not choose an answer and I was not going to do so any time...
