One of My Hubs Is getting Spam in the Comments. What to do?
One of my hubs is being spammed - five entries today - with absolutely nothing to do with the topic. Three of the entries are in a foreign language and all end the lengthy comment with a web address / link! I didn't delete so it could be traced. My John Paul II Hub. Suggestions?
delete the comments and then set your comments to moderated status so that you have to approve them before they show on your hubs. This is going on with several hubbers presently.
Hi, EuroCafeAuLait. Have you considered changing your settings so that you must approve comments? That should nip it in the bud. I checked it out. It's a mixture of French and gibberish. Spam. Has anyone ever garnered positive results from spam?
Also, if there is a hubber profile at the top of the comment, click on it then use the 'Flag this Profile' button. It will be picked up and the individual removed if necessary.
We're discussing this problem at this Forum thread:
I have always had my settings so comments have to be approved before they show up to avoid that all together. I've had a troll or two and it helps with that also.

Why would anyone delete a comment on their hub?If I deleted a comment on one of my hubs, I would figure I am not good at dealing with people who might disagree with me. People can agree or disagree, it's a free...

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...
