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.

Maybe it's the topics - some must attract more spam than others.

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.

when we flag a comment in one of our hubs as spam, how long does it take for hubpages to log the event for future reference? can we delete the comment forever as soon as it is marked as spam or should we leave the comment unpublished until such times as hubpages logs the event to help prevent...

Have you received any spam comments on Hubpages?I've been on HP for a long time and this morning was the first that I ever got a spam message to one of my hubs. I denied her comment and deleted her forever, but nonetheless, it was still disturbing. The commenter tried to direct me to another site...

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?
