    Be aware of this spammy URL, which is constantly leaving comments on hubs:
    http://www.  absintheshop.info/
    Do anyone knows, where can I report this URL to be officially banned on HubPages?
    Thank you for your help in advance!

    I have noticed that too. The only comment he/she leaves is "Great info. Thanks." on all the hubs, with a link to a site. You can report that ip on team@hubpages.com

    Best Regards

    Flag the comment as "spam" using the appropriate comment button and the system will eventually block that person's comments from appearing.

    I tried to delete that spammer's comment from my hub and it would not let me.  At first I was curious to see where it went and I accidentally approved this spam comment.  Once approved I was unable to delete it.

      You can go back and deny it.

          Well, it shouldn't. Log out and check the hub.

          Is it? As far as I know, we can deny a comment and then delete forever. It will show up for more or less 24 hours, but only for the moderator's view and it will go away permanently. If it is of spam nature, you will see "Not Spam" and "Delete Forever" buttons after denying.

    It is not letting me do that.  Oh well, I could care less because I think most people will not click on that comments site.  No harm no foul.

    Sweetie Pie, you should care about it, because it is simply not good at all to have spammy comments on your HubPage. You do a great job, put a lot of efforts and thoughts in creation of the hub, and than one 'random automatic spam robot' just seed its back links all over the web. Google sees absolutely everything what is happening on the web, no matter do follow or no follow. Google value every single web page in its very own way. It is not good at all to be anyhow connected to spam content, spam behaviour of any other person/company. It lower your Google (and other search engines) rankings. Reasons: no relevancy, low quality links on your Hub/web page, even links which have been transfered to Google Prison (Google supplemental index).

    I think, it is worthwhile to control comments on your hubs, and I just delete them if they are spammy, exclusively commercially promotional nature or Adsense farms. Higher will be the Google Page Rank(PR) of your hub, more spammy comments you could expect.
    Protect your good hubs by strictly control the comments.

      I think you mistook what I wrote smile.   Of course I delete all spam when I can.  If you reread what I wrote you will see earlier I said I could not delete it so I was not going to worry.  However, when I signed out that comment does not show up on other peoples' view of that page, it just will not let me delete it from my view.  However, anyone else visiting the page will not see it.  I knew there was a solution to the problem and everything turned out fine in the end.

    SweetiePie, I am very sorry to mistook your comment.
    Also, text about spam comments has been intednde generally, because there are spam comments on hubs and some hubbers do not know about them.
    SweetiePie, I also know, that you are proficient about that topic.
