thumbs up Dumped 80 bot accounts

Post by Helladamnleet » Fri Jul 19, 2019 10:33 pm

So the anti-bot shit I'm using also has a feature that searches the member list and picks out accounts registered with known bot emails and user names so I was able to dump 80 bots all at once. So that takes care of a good chunk of sleeper accounts, and this method seems to work far better than reCAPTCHA, and with the newest update has shit that blocks bots from accessing the site at all, so now our data is more secure than ever.

Nice. I hate bot accounts on any platform.

At first I wasn't too bothered by it, but for one I don't like the member list being full of bots because it makes the site look like a joke, and for two they aren't very creative bots, so it's not like they post lulzy things to laugh at, it's just spam that someone responds too and makes deleting the thread a dick move.
