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."
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.

Hi,One of my Hubs has been showing comments from different people that are unrelated to my post. It seems to be entire discussions going on about another subject. Is anyone else seeing this?
