I'm sick and tired of these new spambots! At least they're slowly getting deactivated.  But seriously, team , there should be a way to report deviants from their profile, not just the help desk.

Please add these to your blocklist:

Also, are you sure they’re being deactivated by staff, or are they just deactivating themselves only to later reemerge under different usernames? (Because I believe their modus operandi is: create new account, spam as many users as they can, voluntarily deactivate account, and repeat the cycle.

ah yeah I'm not sure - and honestly with all these I'm likely to have a full blocklist soon.

I was told 500 is the limit that can be filled in the blocklist, which by itself is a shortcoming of DA.

I literally got a bot that is "watching me", I always check the people that favorite or watch me since I know there are fakers and bots. They're a pain in the butt to deal with, at least they don't come to me super frequently.

:( One's watching you? like literally one of your watchers? if so you should block it.

Update: It got banned, as in really quickly.

Good - hopefully it was actually a ban and not deactivating to join again.

They keep liking comments that I have made on pages!

But what did they do to you?

Same thing - it's just annoying because I think someone's genuinely reacting to my artwork or comment and then its a spam bot.

I believe this is one of the nuisances of Eclipse, because Eclipse right away prints your latest comments on your front page, and the one page that spambots visit first is your front page. And because they want to spam as many users as they can, they no longer want to bother to navigate thru your galleries or favorites to fave them, thus they quickly go to your Eclipse front-page comments feed and quickly hit like on your most recent comments there (something only possible under Eclipse – the old UI doesn’t allow you to like comments) – it’s more time-efficient for them.
