James
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United States
Born at the tail of the baby boom, James was introduced to drawing and painting and making films at an early age by his parents. Now, nearly 60 years later, he still occasionally sketches and paints but for the most part uses computer graphics programs for image creation. His favorite programs are Blender, GIMP, Poser, and Vue. He currently lives in a small town in New Jersey, sharing his space with two cats and a human female.
Interests
And this morning I wondered about a DA account which had apparantly sat idle for five years and then in the space of an hour, suddenly watched a bunch of artists, at an hour which was very, very, very early for the location the account claimed to be from.

Now when I get a watch notification, I usually check out the watcher's account, to see what other art they like, what art they've posted (if they have I generally watch them back).  But this account, there was nothing.  In five years they hadn't favorited anything, posted any journals, made any comments, or filled out any information at all about themselves.

In addition, in the last ten weeks they had done nothing, except for this single burst of activity, where they decided to watch a particular set of artists, myself included.

This doesn't really fit any of the use patterns that I've seen over the past twelve years as a DA member.  So then I thought about what sort of account might show such a pattern. Trolls, scammers, and spammers, I figured, might create a host of accounts for use knowing that it was likely that some accounts would get disabled or deleted for engaging in antisocial behavior.

So I blocked it.
