Follow

Hey, question for cybre.space peeps—how are you finding/why are you reporting remote accounts that have spam bios but only one or two posts? are they auto-following people? just getting boosted? is there something I should do with these accounts moderation wise?

thanks all! will look into possible mitigations, spammy follows suck!

@nightpool I've been getting (automated) follow requests from accounts like that

@nightpool Yes, they seem to be auto-following people as a spam technique. (I assume multiple posts of the same content triggers a filter on mastodon.social - they were taking about that at one point.) I report them so the remote admins can shut them down.
