SPAM

Ok....why the chinese spam?

@Scrivna - Thanks for all you do maintaining this site, but here's an issue for you.

To expand a little more on this, it appears a Chinese bot has created a bunch of accounts and they are all posting this image:


And they are posting a ton of Chinese text on each image. I think all the text is the same on each image, but I didn't dig into it much. A few example accounts are:
https://365project.org/5zvoc
https://365project.org/of7yd
https://365project.org/lo93y
https://365project.org/qbman
https://365project.org/8y3j1

It looks like it's posting a image every 10 - 15 seconds and is clogging up the latest image page.

Thanks

that's really too bad that someone is doing this... why oh why can't people with all that ingenuity and know-how think of something more productive to do with their time and talent!

Yes! What the heck? To what purpose?

Phew! I thought for a moment you were objecting at my attempt to play catch up! :D

Is there a solution to fixing it? Has it been reported?

@judyc57 I think the only way to report it is to tag Ross so he sees this. And @sudweeks did that.

@mzzhope - The purpose of spamming websites is to try to fraudulently increase the ranking of your site on search engines. Google does a pretty good job of identifying what's spam and ignoring it, but I bet Baidu isn't as good.

@judyc57 - Another possible solution would be try to get 365project.org banned by the Chinese government so it's blocked by the great firewall. If everyone tags their photos with 自由香港, that might do it.

Hey, thanks for the heads up. I noticed it as well and have done my best to remove them all.

How can this be fixed?? I'm still seeing all the little leaf images? Is there something I can do to fix this?

@Scrivna - Thanks Ross. The latest image page looks good again.
