Spamming by Drug Accounts
Join to comment
Hi folks, just noticed that many of the Cialis/Viagra type spam accounts have recently liked one of Ludgonious's MOCs: http://www.mocpages.com/fans.php?id=161871

While I think all his builds deserve at least this many likes, I hope you can shut down these accounts. Also, over 1500 more have still been invited to this group: http://www.mocpages.com/group_members.php?id=23436

This accounts are more troublesome than I initially thought now that they've been like spamming MOCs, hopefully you guys are able to easily suspend a large number of accounts.

Of course! You only mention it when Lugonious's MOCs are spammed! There is already a topic for this, created by me when I noticed one of my MOCs had 42 likes, 41 of them from something relating to some drug.

We've got the capacity to delete those accounts, but the process is very slow - only one at a time, and it involves going to numerous pages for each account.

I might try wittling away at them over the course of a few weeks, but I think I'll pass the info along to Sean. He may not have time to deal with them either, but I think he'd like to be aware of the issue all the same.

Thanks Mark, I figured it'd be a bit of a lengthy process or you guys'd be all over this type of stuff. Had my fingers crossed that it wasn't though. ;)

Hopefully there's some solution, this is such a great site and it's painful to see spamming and glitches detract from the experience. It's a shame that most fixes either cost too much, take too much time, or can't be trusted with enough people. All things considered though, spamming's at a record low, so that's always a plus.

Cheers Mark.

Just clicking "See Who" beside the yellow head counter on the MOC.

Unfortunately, this site is rampant with spam. In fact, many of the MOCs that are on the first few pages of the All Time Most Popular section are there as a result of illigit "likes." My Invisible Hand MOC was a good example. It had over 5k "likes" at one point, until Sean went in and got rid of the spam. Took it down to like 1,400 or somewhere in that range.

Yeah, it's always bugged me seeing all the cars and such on the front page, way over spammed.
