    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?

    Thanks

    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.

      They are offsite, the unverified users comment just promoting their own products. I just deny the comment, and delete never have reported them.

    I think they should be drawn and quartered.  I hate when people leave comments.

    Especially when I have to hit "delete."

    My arms get so tired of clicking, moving my sausage fingers to the proper places...oh.

    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.
