What's the prevalence of Hubbers recieving sapm in fan message posts? I had a slew a couple days ago, including one of at least 500 words.
First time for me a couple of days ago... I guess because it doesn't happen often, it doesn't bother me.
It's never happened to me...maybe I shouldn't have said that. HEHE
But, I've had a few doozies in my comments box on occasion. Religion can be inspiring at times. LOL
I just got the worst one EVER by this creep "guessmyname" that is running around the forums right now.
Hope "it" is banned! yuk.
Yeah, this guy is definitely - ummm - unusual. I can't classify him so far
I get them sometimes, but noticed a bit more than usual this week.
sometimes in the comments box though ... it pops once in awhile.
OK, sometimes it happens more than others.
I would never have thought to spam in a fan club posting. Always something new here.
Patty! I've had a couple of them over the past month or so but Angelic Stephanie left some 'spam-a-roni' on my fan mail two days ago. It seems so futile to go to all that hassle. Don't they know that the 'c**p' will be denied right away? I will never understand all this.
Judging by the expert hubbers posting, getting spam in your fan mail is a sign of success!
Ah, I wish...!!
That's what I was thinking? Maybe they spam the best people. None for me.
Imagine me with my tail between my legs....
After reading several of the posts on this string, I have to guess that I am at least one of the offending parties. I had an idea recently to write a chapter of my novel as a work in progress. I worked in a museum several years ago where they had a house they were restoring and presented it as a work in progress, so people could come back year after year and see the restoration in the works. That was what inspired me to do this.
So I went through the list of sites that have joined my fanclub and whose fanclub I have joined. I didn't think that I was spamming, but maybe that's because spamming is a subjective term. What is considered spam to one person may not be to someone else. I should note, in support of that theory, that I have received several rather supportive emails from people who liked the idea. I perhaps naively thought that people would appreciate that I was re-visting their sites, since I suspect that a lot of people never go back after the initial visit.
If I have somehow offended someone, I beg forgiveness and pledge not to make the same mistake again.
Nope, nada, nothin'.
I've had a couple of insane comments, but that was a couple of months ago, I just denied them.
Jim Henry, haven't seen any of your 'work in progress'....can't you publish it as a hub?
It's published....here's the link: http://hubpages.com/hub/Chapter-Eightee … n-Progress
I'm actually having a great deal of fun with this. As you'll see when you read about my experiment, I have gotten my evil villain into a mess and he absolutely has to get out. I know how I got him into it, but he can't leave the way he came.
Since I haven't got a conception how I'm going to get him out, I'm sort of winging it, and that's where the fun is. It's exciting to write a piece and experience the thrill of "learning" something just as if I were a first-time reader.

I have to read everyday the comments in my hubs. People are posting writing services, essays, etc. How can we protect from that?

I along with others are tired of the never ending spam in the Q and A section. Some of us prefer the more civil (well sometimes more civil) Q and A over the forums. Please start something that slows the overwhelming amount of spam that has been there lately. Implement something that keeps newbies...

I have been seeing a lot of forum spam lately. I think it could be *greatly* reduced by only allowing new sign-ups to post under the help section until they've published one hub. After they've published their first hub, then they could post anywhere. I think this would deter a lot of the people who...

I suggest that HP prevent any registered user from posting a new topic to the forums if they have no hubs. They can comment but not start new threads.Most forums that I use have this restriction in place.

This has probably been addressed elsewhere but I haven't found the answer yet. Is it ok to post a link to your own hub in the comments section to someone else's hub on the same or similar subject? I just found such a post in a comment on one of my hubs and don't know whether its a good...
