Has anyone else been seeing all the spam topics? *Ranting Thread*


#42

So I am not sure if this is the right place to post this, but it is definitely the place it has been infected by. So It has been 2 weeks since the last time I have been on here, and all of sudden there’s a bunch of bots that creates a lot unnecessary topics. Anyone that knows something?

(Btw, this comment was for a thread I made myself since I didn’t know this topic already had a thread so it was moved over here)

I know, they are sooo annoying.
Just flag them, there’s nothing else we can do. Don’t reply to their posts because the attention makes them post more.

How do the bots work


#45

That’s difficult to explain (mostly because English is not my first language :sweat_smile: )
If they get attention(replies, likes, …) they’ll post more because they’re programmed that way. I saw them in other forums too, they just spammed a lot until the IP-addresses were finally banned, but they could also have changing IPs, that would make the whole issue more complicated

#50

Can’t episode just block this bots IP address too? :sweat_smile:


#51

If they are changing all the time, it would get really difficult.
And I don’t know if they are doing anything right now, I think they just wait and hope they’ll go away by themselves.
