Anyone else getting their new videos spammed with porno site URLs in the comments?

This started happening about two months ago. Every new video that comes out instantly gets a couple of comments from spammers pushing porno sites, like "Hot-Girls.online". I report every comment like this instantly. It only happens to my news videos.

Just wondering if everyone is seeing this, or is someone targeting my channel again?

yes this has been happening to my uploads too. Not just comments, the comment has a timestamp too. With that being said, there have been instances where instantly when i upload new video it gets comments saying - wanna be friends or can we be friends. Don't really know what this is but i surely delete them and block the channel for the user.

Can some expert around here help us know what this is and how this can be blocked or stopped?

How these comments pass through youtube antispam system? When you post untrusted link in comment it automatically goes to spam folder

Ive been having a similar problem. not p**n, per se, but rather just useless spam. what's odd though, is the commentator will typically post a random segment in my video (9 times out of 10 usually it has nothing to do with the spam anyways...) followed by thier spammy stuff. I typically just delete these comments when I find them

I think that's how they've been doing. they'll post a timestamp from the video followed by thier stuff. (i.e. 1:25 spammy spammy.com)

Yep. I also got a reply on the last video I uploaded to a prawn site that was timestamped.
It was removed though, or pending approval, because I had a notification of the post on my video but it wasn't actually showing in the comments section.

Yeah there is a lot of spam on Youtube at the moment but the filters seem to intercept 99% of it.
