    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.

    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.
