Is it a common occurrence to have other registered Hubbers leave spam comments?
I also had the same question in mind, I was thinking that I should try to know from the google!
The comments I received were totally unrelated to the Hub, They were ads for Rolex watches and woman's dresses. I clicked on the person's profile. I found they publish no articles, and it looked as though they were leaving similar comments on a number of other Hubs.
Report them to the HubPages team and they will quickly disappear from HubPages!
It is very common for spammers to try and manipulate there Page Rank by blog commenting.

And whenever I delete one, it seems another immediately comes up!I'm sure that when I wake up tomorrow (it's almost 1 in the morning now) I'll have many more to delete. Ugh, is there a way to stop these spam...

I found several comments that are completely unrelated to my hubs and some are still visible on feeds. Some are posted in languanges other than English which is the only language allowed here on hubpages. Should I mark them as spam or completely delete them?
