Are spam comments supposed to show up in our feed? I've never noticed them before, but all of these latest spam comments are appearing in my feed on the home page, and I've received a notification email about three of them (even though they were correctly marked as spam by HubPages).
Sorry for any problems this latest SPAM onslaught has caused.
This is related to:
Our engineering team is working on cleaning up the comments and reducing such deluges in the future.
Thanks for everyone's patience.
I made a post in another forum about the SPAM comments generating emails, which I don't think they should.
As for them showing up in the Feed, yeah I saw that too. Found it odd though.
That's why I created this thread. I know HP is aware of the flood of spam but wasn't sure if they were aware of the feed/email thing.
Mine have shown up on the feed, in fact another came in just a few minutes ago, but I have had no emails although my mail is set for notification.
Not complaining or anything, but it would only seem to be broken in some cases.

Is there some way that messages caught by the automated spam filters can be blocked from the feed page? The most annoying part is that even once deleted forever, they continue to show up there.

In the past few days (since the 21st) I have not received any emails to inform me that I have a comment (I've found the comments on my account page) and I am not getting emails about new hubs that are being written. I have checked my span folder and they are not there. I don't know what to do about...

Every day when I log into HubPages, the first thing I do is read my new comments and approve them.However, I'll be wandering around my hubs and I'll see comments that HubPages kind of says are spam, but I never received ANY notification of the comment.It would be nice to be able to mod these...

I would like to know how someone, who joined five hours ago, whom I do not "follow" and would never dream of doing so, has managed to spam my feed with notification of a hub he has produced? It is bad enough that HP insists on logging me out every couple of days, that I have to go through...
