Do a lot of people on here block the "new" 18 - 21 Female accounts?

Some 18 - 21 male noob was saying he is already blocked by umpteen people.

It just made me wonder because every day there are "new" 18 - 21 F accounts. Yeah people deactivate and come back under a new acct but not THAT many. Not like 10 a day.

Like "here comes ANOTHER bot!" Block. And another one blocked And another one blocked...

I seen forums before that are completely overrun by spammers and bots, will this one soon become a statistic?

It is getting as obvious though as those texts saying they have a UPS package and they want you to verify your info. BUUUUUUUUUULLLLLLsh*t
Ignoring is usually more effective than blocking.
. Just another new user. 😂

I don't auto block anyone unless it's the creeps that are explicitly about nude wife sharing or other [i]one track minded[/i] explicit content.

I dont block, just ignore, i dont tend to look at posts from that age range anyway.

I don't, but am more cautious, because they just may be actually younger.

i block all of those accounts, they are AI bots i suspect.

I say they seem to be bots as they all say about the same thing.. Just my opinion tho

@NinaTina Either that or it is one person with more personalities than psychology could explain.

@SilkenMist Not much psychology to it. They come from a smaller younger venting platform that is shutting down. Hence the raise in new members and many who's younger.

@Queendragonfly This site has a history of wanting to scoop up members of failing forums.

I found my way here on chance three years ago when my last forum started having too many technical problems.

You know most of the noobs are fibbing about being 18 in the first place.

I don’t bother blocking them. I can’t even comment on their posts because my comments don’t show up on the NEW accounts.

@iamonfire696 @AthenaArena It's like they are digging deeper than ever to block content at random.
@SilkenMist it's like they want all the regular users to go away and they want these random new people 😢
iamonfire696 · 36-40, F
@SilkenMist I think so too. They told me when Cassie couldn’t see me on her new account there were several factors.

I am not getting my butt fact checked either. No idea what the factors were though…..
No I certainly don't bother, I hardly see any posts as it is

@AthenaArena This, to me, is the real problem here.

There are some people who automatically block any new people in that age range, under the assumption that they are bots.

I don't see the point.
tacobell · 26-30, M
I can see why they would do it but I don't want to waste my blocks on them
LordShadowfire · 46-50, MVIP
@tacobell It's like the time the Chinese language bots attacked Yahoo! Answers. They were just so many of them, it became useless to try to block. You'd run out of blocks before they ran out of bots.
