|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.
|Zycant has become the new second-hand man. Kirito is MIA but still alive.|
|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.
|Just went on patrol to investigate this user and found another one that escaped our notice since August. Thanks again for your diligence. ^^;|
Law firm in San Antonio, TX.
Investment fraud securities attorney in Las Vegas, NV.
|Appears we have some new bots. Time to clean 'em out. XP|
Texas infrared inspection services, based in Houston, TX.
Japanese sex doll creator somewhere in the U.S. (this one gave me a laugh XD)
Has a link to what appears to be a political website. Possibly a forum. This bot has been around for a few months.
|BuTc43y is the most recent one I can see. Looks like it's iPhone repair.|
|Indeed it is. Thanks, ZycantAlpha. ^^|
iPad repair service in Redmond, WA.
|Located another spambot.|
Salmon fishing lodge in Anchorage, AK.
|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.
|The forum has been busted, but- I think it's working now? TESTING TESTING numbers in the right order|
