Is there any chance of providing some kind of notice re spammy comments? I do a sweep of my hubs now and then and I never fail to unearth spam comments. They tend not to show (for some reason) so unless I do a regular check they remain attached to what could be a strong web page - meaning they get the benefit.

I think you do not get notified of them, but they remain unseen by the public. I know Ive had one or two and only found them when looking at my hubs when I am signed in. (I do have my hub's comments set so that I have to approve them first..but I can't remeber how I did it. Or if that even matters.)
Thankyou Maddie. That worked great. Don't need any other indication, can just check that out now. I'm assuming it picks up spam in general?

One of my hubs keeps getting lots of spam in the comments. This is my highest viewed article, pushing 100 thousand. I'm getting tired of it. What can I do?

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...
