Bot Accounts Deleted

Postby Admin » March 30th, 2018, 9:32 am

A bunch of spambot accounts have been deleted. If you're an author and your number of fans went down, don't worry, you didn't lose any actual fans!

Weirdly enough, it always makes me happy to see my fan count go down by a bunch like that :D

I wish more sites would make a policy of deleting bot accounts instead of keeping them around to inflate their numbers.

The bots just exist to have their shady websites linked from their profiles, to boost those sites' search engine rankings. They favourite comics probably in an attempt to look like legitimate users, rather than obvious bots with completely empty profiles. So, you don't generally don't see/hear these bots. Some bots do leave (spammy) comments, but these seem to be less common.
