Spam comments appearing on feed and generating emails

    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.

    Hey Marisa,

    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. hmm

      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.

          I haven't received any emails from the spam comments either.
