I am pretty sure there is not much we can do about spammers who leave their advertising comments. Other than deny the comment, is there any other suggestions of how hubbers handle their spammers?
If they are hubbers in hubville, report them, then delete the comment. If they are offsite and spamming, just report them as spam (there's button for that) and delete them forever.
Pretty simple, really. Not fun, but necessary.
I think they should be drawn and quartered. I hate when people leave comments.
Especially when I have to hit "delete."

I'm sweaty just thinking about it. I need a nap...
Maybe it's the topics - some must attract more spam than others.
I have probably deleted maybe 20 or less comments since I joined HP, and I currently have nearly 600 (I think?)
IF it's just on one or two hubs, you can go into the edit comments box and change it so that only hubpage members can comment.

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 world. If the comment was mean or nasty, well I'm not the one looking bad,...

Help! If I could just figure out how to stop it: I have suddenly started gettiong multiple spams in the comment section of several hubs. I keep deleting them, but they're multiplying like rabbits. Do I need to report the senders?

I seldom find a comment to my hubs hub that include a business link. Are links allowed in the comment section? Do you reply or do you delete the comment? Thanks.
