Looks like we just got a whole host of spam accounts that've been created. I happened to be online and saw these suspicious-looking usernames (ALL of them online at once), and when I checked---sure enough, spammers.

I loved this work, it was indeed a wakeup call, so provoking! Even the best essay writing services have been appreciating the efforts of the author. IT was indeed a really good work and a must read!


So they're getting more tricksey and making them look like actual reviews. The bold were links to God knows where. The review even used the name of my story though. Obviously they didn't read it but I don't know whether or not to feel offended or flattered that I got CUSTOM SPAM.

I was just online and found some new players who were on at the same time. Thought it was a tiny bit weird and went to check it out, and it looks like they're all spam accounts. All of the bios kept going on about having white teeth and it was really long. The names I got are oliverhulsey243, wilsonwaldron93, mqpsophie395121, and probably a lot of others I didn't see. I think at least 20 or so accounts were made? I'm probably counting incorrectly, but it looks that way.

The anon ones are especially hideous because there's no way to block them. Thank you for pointing out other ways that they spread their spam! For anyone who gets anon spam, all you can do is delete them. However, if they have an actual account here, let me know and I can delete their account.

Thanks for catching them! I'll make sure they get deleted
