Some people will post things advertising links to a website in a comment. I don't get this a lot, but its occurring more lately. Its usually a relevant comment, buts its spam and I delete them. Does this happen to you guys sometimes?
yes happens every now and again,just report it and delete,i also get the odd comment from someone who points out that i have made a simple mistake in one of my hubs,with them i just ask where their hubs are as generally they are just browsing.
Occasionally but not often.
If it's a non hubber on one hub, you can edit the comments box and set it so only hubbers can comment.
It happens rarely to me, but enough that I set my comments to moderate... I don't like spam being visible, even if it is only until I delete it.
It happens to me all the time, and it irks me. People think if they type up (or copy) a big, long, "relevant", comment their link is going to fly. It doesn't, as far as I'm concerned. That's because a lot of people are told that when they want to post their unsolicited link places it might go over if they "post a relevant comment". That little blue square with an arrow in it pretty much says, "I didn't have a shred of interest in this Hub. I was only looking for a place to post my own links." I know a lot of people just figure, "that's how it works among Internet writers", but it irks me anyway (which is maybe why I shouldn't be writing on the Internet, I guess... )

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...

Have you received any spam comments on Hubpages?I've been on HP for a long time and this morning was the first that I ever got a spam message to one of my hubs. I denied her comment and deleted her forever, but nonetheless, it was still disturbing. The commenter tried to direct me to another site...
