I have been noticing for quite some time now that there are a few suspicious-looking DeviantArt accounts that have recently added my deviation, “Humanoid Vixen,” to each of their favorites gallery.
The accounts thus far are listed as follows (in order of when the upvote was granted by each individual):
And, each of these accounts all (or at least most of them) share the following characteristics:
- They have posted no deviations or scraps of their own.
- They have posted no comments, critiques, or forum posts.
- They have no watchers (or they have literally no more than 3-4 people watching them).
- They have minuscule pageviews as well as visitor traffic.
- Their last visits are listed as being away for months and even years.
- They have no status updates or journal entries posted.
- They have a deviantID section that displays bare minimum information with no profile picture.
- And, most notably, within that very same section, they all have websites listed along with descriptions thereof (that have bizarre grammar) suggesting sexually explicit content with the prospect of dating (or “hooking up”).
Here are just a few examples (I would also advise actually visiting any of these websites lest your computer may potentially become infected with malware. Proceed at your own risk, otherwise):
“ᴡᴡᴡ.19sеху.рw - Hоt krоsоtki wishing lоvе yоu аntiсipаtе hеrе.”
“ᴡᴡᴡ.19sеху.рw - sех dаting with thе mоst pаssiоnаtе girls hеrе.”
“ᴡᴡᴡ.5bbrxh.website - plаusiblе yоung girls lоvе sех sех оn оnе twiсе wаiting fоr yоu hеrе.”
“ᴡᴡᴡ.7ttnww.website - Wоmаn lооking fоr sех buddy соmmuniсаtiоn rеlаtiоnship thеn соmе in hеrе.”
I presume that all of these accounts are likely fake ones, and bots at that. My question is: is this anything that I truly need to be concerned with? Because I have a feeling that these accounts upvoting my “Humanoid Vixen” (as well as potentially any other of my deviations) are not going to stop anytime soon. And, I obviously wish to face no detriment because of such upvotes from them. Any suggestions, be it though public comments or private notes, on this particular issue would be greatly appreciated.
Also, I just want to explicitly state THAT I HAVE NO AFFILIATION WITH ANY OF THESE ACCOUNTS OR THEIR RESPECTIVE SEXUALLY EXPLICIT WEBSITES THAT THEY ARE SEEMINGLY PROMOTING! Not to mention that the only watchers/followers and favorites that I desire should be from actual human beings, rather than any sort of bot; I am a person who favors integrity, not someone desperate for false approval to enhance my own reputation therein.
