I still use the old Hubtivity to check what is going on on HP.
This morning, I saw there was a comment on one of my hubs from an unregistered user (Luis Diaz) on the hub about how to change language settings on Youtube. But when I went and clicked on the comment, it took me to my hub and there was no sign of the comment.
I could not see this comment in Hubfeed, either. What does it mean?
Thank you for reporting this issue. A while ago we wrote a program to detect spammy comments and not show them to our users. However, it looks like the Hubtivity code was not "paying attention" to the message that said that the comment was spam; and so it was still telling you that it was existed.
The issue has been fixed and will go out with our next build. You will no longer see Hubtivity entries about Spammy messages that have already been deleted for you.
I've seen some odd things in the Hubtivity, like recent hub or forum comments being listed twice, even though there was only the one. Incorrect (posted) times given. A comment notice on the left of the page was not listed in the Hubtivity.
Something needs fixing perhaps, although I haven't noticed these problems lately.
I believe it is spam, Aya, so the system automatically picks it up and deletes it. There are a few names - Luis Diaz is one - that keep cropping up on HP and in the comments on my own site!
I see that quite frequently, its SPAM that the system caught as Sufi said.
I imagine, if the same comment is frequently posted by the same user/ip within a certain time period, the system gets it.
Thats how akismet works. (The wordpress antispam plugin)
In my case, the comment itself wasn't posted twice, just the listing in the Hubtivity list. It was a hubber that I know well, not some spammer.

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...

In which cases would you flag/report someone to Hubpages, or even ask that they be banned?For example, if someone slandered your name, would you flag them? Here is a comment taken from a religious Q&A comment on Hubpages: "Compulsive lying with an inclination towards spreading...

On my feed page next to my name there has always been a comments line that shows how many comments need moderating. It is showing 3 unread comments, but when I go to view the comments there are none there. I have tried all of the different filter options, like moderated or spam, but for...

When I receive a notification of a new comment on one of my Hubs, the "Reply" button is no longer available. The "Deny" button is still there. Funny thing is when I have multiple comments. I answer the first one via the "Leave a Comment" Box at the bottom. When I...

When I first started my hub I did some comments on other hubs from other authors. It is fun to read other stuff and get recipes, hear funny stories, etc. and participate in the conversation. These first comments appeared instantly. Now when I comment they say they are unapproved. Not all are...

I just went under my account page and clicked on Comments, and much to my surprise and delight there were pages of comments! However, after a closer look, they are all comment made by me on others' hubs from the past 19 hours to well over 13 months ago! And ... to boot, I have the...
