Every few days, I delete accounts created by russian spammers. I don’t advertise. Nobody follows me. I’m really just a honeypot, because the ratio of users to spammers is 0% to 100%.
I did setup google captcha, which reduced the number of spammers trying to advertise their penis pills, but it’s still not zero.
I need to create a sign-up filter that does both captcha and email / SMTP interaction, to reduce robotic participation.
It’s 2019 people, have zero grad students been thinking about this? Hmmm?
