Ad-bot profile report thread.
Posted on Nov. 30, 2016, 7:03 p.m. by VampireArm
If you are like me and seem to be followed by a new "ad-bot" every other day, it becomes tedious to tag Yeago in every single one. I've made this thread to make the process a little easier and to lower down the spammed tag for Go. If you are followed by a profile that has nothing but nonsense written on it, tag the fake profile here for deletion.
Thanks for starting this vamp. You've done a hell of a job. I know it seems tedious but actually, I've had several incidents where spam content got by and lived on for years. Hopefully you can get a break in.

As an aside, no problem Yeago. I actually have a ton of profiles following me currently that are a few years old and are totally empty. If you have access to my frollowers list, you'll probably see them. If not, i'll post them all tonight.

So, what's the protocol? Just put the bot username here? Or is there a more formal reporting system?

Any bot you see just tag them here like you would any other user. Yeago will handle it from there.

Looking at the bot names, I might borrow some of them as RPG character or card creation names. I'm sure they won't mind...

Does it have to be a bot, or can we report suspicious profiles or those people that create spam threads??

For now, let's use this thread for strictly bots. Other suspicious profiles can be brought up to myself, Epochalyptik, or yeago directly and we'll investigate those on a case by case basis

There's this bot called VampireArm who's been following me for years, spams all over the place.
For real though I'll keep an eye out.
