SPAM Accounts


Post #1 made on 01/13/17 @ 10:16 am
Hello

I am making this announcement to let those users that have been using this site to post:

1) SPAM
2) Advertisements
3) Porn
4) Selling Products: Make up/Medicines/etc...

You are all advised that when this site transfers to the new site. You will no longer have the LUXURY of making multitudes of accounts to post your SPAM. I already see 3 accounts just created within the HOUR...or last few minutes. I am now aware of ALL posts. Registering on the new site WILL be different. All of these SPAM accounts will get purged.

Update: Monitoring these accounts proved to be FUN. They come by each day...sometimes more than three times. To check if I or anyone else notices how many accounts they have, and if we chased them all down yet. There are SO MANY that it is pointless to update this portion of post.

And it never ends....I see there was even more accounts created. New users never know to make an avatar. So they try that trick too. Accounts that has only activity for looking to see where they can post without me knowing....is now impossible. >: )
I will ALWAYS recognize the pattern. >; )
And the other areas I get notified anyway. X D

ON a SERIOUS NOTE:
THE ONLY EXAMPLES: Posting ANY Advertising of ANY kind...clothing, medicine/drugs, health and any PORN. Keep that garbage OUT of this SITE. I will CONSIDER YOU TROLLING to sexulaize KIDS. This site might have a LOT of adults on it. BUT there is to be ZERO TOLERANCE for THAT type of interaction. This is a site for kids to be SAFE on. PERIOD! The adults on here are aware and make the kids AWARE that they are adults. This is not an age specific site...since a lot of the artists ARE adults. Though there is SO MANY amazing kids that draw art...they blow me away in amazement how awesome their art IS! : D And I might be the OLDEST person on this site! X D Hence why I am QUITE PROTECTIVE of the young people on this site.

And now they are trying to look legitimate by posting Youtube link and claiming that it is to watch a music video....problem is. I can SEE the account was just created. AND you are trying to pull people off site for Youtube. Uh...NO. For sure the link is typically virus laden. THIS is their ultimate goal, people not smart enough to NOT click on their links. I trust the Squiby users to NOT CLICK on these ever ADVERTISING garbage fake PRODUCTS, links! These people get PAID to make accounts on sites and SPAM the living hECK out of the said sites. DO YOURSELVES A FAVOR to not accidentally fall into their TRAP of PUTTING MALWARE on your COMPUTERS. DO NOT CLICK on their LINKS! IT IS CLICKBAIT of the MALICIOUS KIND!!!! Even if you DO and don't see anything...it would be too late. MALWARE is their GAME and what they do for a LIVING.

Ever flipping DAY...every other hour or two...these Spam accounts are created. Like 99% of the new accounts ARE JUST SPAM ACCOUNTS.

LUCKILY with the new site...I will not have to put up with them creating these false accounts. Since all accounts newly created will only be able to use a working email address to sign up. AND NO more REUSING of the emails to make a slew of SPAM accounts.

Spam accounts are ridiculously easy to spot.

Same thing today. A whole slew of accounts all created with same time etc. Though they are creating single accounts here and there.

For any suspect accounts, I will become their "FAN". And also apply this comment:

"Welcome to Squiby! And if you are here for adopting, creating and roleplaying, you will enjoy this site! If you are here for other activities, against rules, you will not keep your account. We are changing policy.

It is simple. If you are a person here starting a legitimate account, I will get a reply. I want to inconvenience them as much as they seem to be trying to do so with me. X D It would be nice if that were they case, that we had this many people signing up. But it is easy to see people are waiting for the new site. I myself can not wait! These spamming accounts are just a minor annoyance right now. When I get to the member section on the new site, I will have better controls to deal with these people and their bots.

Oh yeah! Just from last evening...they created about 20 or so accounts. The names are too obvious though they created 2 or 3 with s/n that would be seemingly normal. Yet the typical tell date of last time online of 12/31/69 is quite obvious. t basically proves that it is either an old email used multiple times over the course of years, more than likely. I have now taken to putting this on all new registered accounts that have shared tells.

In other words. Your account is coming up as a SPAM account. On the new site. BOTS and MULTIPLE accounts, will not be able to work."

I seriously can NOT WAIT to not even have to eye the registry. I read EVERY new post now. X D

NEW NORMAL every day. Out of 100 accounts created a DAY. There is literally 3 or 5 accounts that are legitimate. I can NOT WAIT to have the ability to wipe out them all from the server. Though they names/emails will be retained in order to prevent these Spam Users with multiple accounts, from reusing the names.

It is either bots or real people...my guess is that it is three users. I get to see the accounts they use to just sit there and monitor if I am on or not. They have opened a slew of accounts. It would have been nice if Squiby was really getting the amount of users that the Registry shows.

They are slowing down a tiny! Only 39 accounts created since last night...and 1 or 2 possible legitimate users among the bunch! Well scratch that....3 more accounts created within the last 3 minutes. 2 more Spam Accounts and possible 1 legitimate account. I am not tiring of handling these accounts one bit. >: ) I am glad I finally did two things to make sure I don't miss anything anymore. Getting rid of these types of accounts are my top priority right now, until we switch over and it will be handled properly. I am also monitoring all accounts created with the last 3 to 4 months.

Just curious...what does anyone think of these screen names?

pjxkadbd95 jgltkcdb81 aqjnrrqe19 isuaaadm78 wqniloqd82 ptbqmmzh02 jegiwvim11

Don't they all look like ai generated screen names? I think they are accounts that the spammers created...hoping that they can post their spam garbage before I get to shutting them down. There are so many of these opened. AND NONE of these generated accounts were activated...none. It is always so weird when spammers are desperate to post their corrupted garbage on sites. It just gives me greater pleasure to shut them down. >: ) People with NEGATIVE reasoning and intentions coming onto this site, should know they are not welcome. But I am doing my best to weed them out...so none of you end up clicking on their corrupted garbage. : )

@kimiyu

I quite agree. They might be bot generated...but actual people activate certain ones. I just had 4 accounts that just were created, and two were ready to post in forums. They try to see how fast I am ohhooo!

AND it never ends lol! They try to amuse me now by switching to posting in Blogs. And BY THE WAY...I hope everyone has their VIRUS PROTECTION software up to DATE. As I thought...they are EMBEDDING VIRUSES WITHIN the posts.

They think I am tired of blocking their accounts...NOPE! >: ) I am thinking about having posts be APPROVED before posting. ; )

Out of the 100 accounts opened up just since 7am yesterday....there was literally 12 REAL accounts created. All of the rest are SPAM accounts. They open a few every hour without fail. Though today they actually let one hour go by. And THIS is a SLOW time. 100 accounts open is supremely SMALL to the usual amount I put up with each day.

THIS is my updated message I post on EVERY new account. (Except for the spam ones.)

"Hi! : ) Welcome to Squiby! And if you are here for adopting, creating and roleplaying, you will enjoy this site! If you are here for other activities, against rules, you will not keep your account. We are changing policy.

PS: Spam accounts that are created will be automatically banned. All accounts created within last 3 to 4 months will be monitored. Especially accounts with no adopting/creating activity. X D"

If this appears "big brother" to you. I am looking out for everyone's interests anyway. If one person clicks on the Spammer's link...who knows..I don't want to find out...and don't want those that might have low virus protection to find out either. They (Spammers) had even taken to calling themselves: "The Hackers." These people have been creating junk accounts too...ones that they never open...hoping that their simplistic idea would overwhelm me. Not a snowball's chance in a very hot place. > : )
