Have a feeling once we remove the spam accounts after we reach 1000 users, the count will drop harder than the Youtube Sub Purge.

Well, the spambots are slowly being weeded out so I doubt it'll be that big of a difference. A slight drop due to the ones that slip through the cracks there. But the inactive ones'll be a bigger jump since people seem to make an account and then forget about it.

I hate to double post, but speaking of spambots, I think I found a few more:
Your3198E (I think it's a security system bot)
Mohz1l0que (Diesel injector salesbot)
rumah (I don't...actually know. It's kind of a nest of links)

Looks like the first two are confirmed spam. Rumah looks to maybe be some kind of a librarian scholar with a plethora of social media accounts across multiple branches. Still, it looks suspicious, so all three will be dealt with.

Thanks again, ZycantAlpha. ^^

Edit: After running rumah's "Rumah Murah Hunian Nyaman Dan Strategis" quote thru Google Translate, it says "Cheap houses Residential Comfortable And Strategic"

So, rumah is definitely a spammer. According to Translate, the quote was Indonesian. Quite a few spam accounts are coming from Indonesia, apparently.

I'm starting to think this is becoming my unofficial job.

Cliv3h3rY - deals in iPhone repair apparently

womenfootwear - no links (for once) but seems like a bot nonetheless

pramuka - I actually think this is the same site that "rumah" was...trying to link to. I think this might be the first duplicate.

Heh, sorry about that. I don't patrol for bots as often as I should. XD But, thanks nonetheless.

All bots and pramuka does look like a duplicate of rumah, but slightly different. They will be dealt with.

I don't mind, honestly. I just find it funny since I'm the only non-mod who does note this.

Speaking of which: theastris1 - It's a site for an attorney.

Found a new one. This one actually posted a comment in bigbishounen's greeting thread.

Seems to be pitching a chat site for reviewing essay assignments.

EDIT: Adding a screencap of the bot's comment to act as a base for what spam comments look like.
