    Well, it looks like I have been hacked.  Has this happened to you and what did you do?

    Yep the good thing is they aren't approved so you manually can decline them smile So it's stops the spam and rubbish on this great website

    Hope that helps

    You haven't been "hacked," you were just the unfortunate target of an automated spam-bot. Just delete the spammy comments. It's a pain, but spam is a way of life, not just on HubPages but on the Internet in general.

    Yes. I had some comments that had nothing to do with the hub they purported to be about.

      I am seeing the same type of thing.  I am reporting as Spam and deleting.  It is so frustrating.
