Shoe Spam

    Did we all get hit with shoe spam comments on every hub, or was that just me. It was about 4 days ago, but each hub that I go to of mine to answer comments, has a spam comment.... Took a good bit of work or was done automatically or something.

    I didn't see any shoe spam, until I went into my comments and looked to see what the spam filter had caught and there were five of them.

    But they're being automatically caught and not displayed so it's a non-issue to me.

    I didn't get one for every hub - but every morning for the last week - I have gotten between 25-30 shoe spams on one of my hubs (one about a child who died no less - those... well, I don't want to be kicked off the forums)

    How do you turn on a spam filter?

    I haven't gotten any recently, but a few weeks ago I had several comments that were pure spam - and involved shoes among other things. I just deleted them and reported as spam.

    I got just one and the comment (minus the many links) was simply "excellent". Literally, that's what they said..."excellent".

    I got them on almost every hub. It's not a problem, but I was just curious if anyone else got them too. They included like 3 links to various shoe places, and the name was linked to one of the listed sites. I haven't read the comments, but I was just curious.

    In the last few days I have been getting 8-10 shoe spam comments on the same hub....my #1 hub.  I report them as spam and delete them.

    I just took a look at my spam comments. WOW. I got a TON about Ugg Boots - about 10 of them.

    I also just found a person that tried to post a message every week on my low calorie breakfast hub. Their message gets deleted every week, but they keep trying. It's a different message every week with the same link attached....too funny.

    hmmm... I guess I'm not popular enough yet... I haven't gotten any.... yet... at least that I'm aware of. smile
    However, I like the term "shoe spam" because that is where spam belongs, on the bottom of my shoe after I squish it! smile
    And it sort of reminds me of doggie waste, though I try to avoid stepping in that.

    I got six, all about Ugg boots knock offs with links two weeks ago. Whitney how annoying and a pain having to delete them off each hub. What a waste of time...
