Yes.

Here is a preview of today's First Time Posters. Those 3 last accounts are obviously spamming links. You can still see the 10 upvoted dummy comments for @Justin94 (this post) and @90min (this post), but @Mumbleberryy's are deleted (I can confirm they were to your v/gaming post).

(Edit: btw I typed these usernames with a hyphen prefix so they don't get pinged.)

Maybe that's what they were TRYING to do.

Deleted comments don't give CCP, though.

This is a test...

Edit: I just want to confirm that it's possible to retain ccp.

Edit2: @TestFarming: TestFarming 0 | 9 | 1

Edit3: account(24 minutes old) deleted, waiting for cache to expire.

Edit4: ccp retained https://voat.co/user/TestFarming.


Another test here: https://voat.co/v/NameTheJews/2640252/13397115

Edit: it sucks because ccp points are retained too. This method allows vote farming without deleting user accounts; all it needs is a somewhat hidden subverse with a mod that is also an alt of vote farming user. Sucks!

Edit2: second test account: https://voat.co/user/TestFarming2

Like I wrote, I suspect they farm the CCP, submit the spam and delete the comments after that to protect the aged accounts.

The new spam account might get noticed and nuked, but they can very easily just make new ones, if this trick is working like I suspect.

Screenshot them, or post the usernames

Yeah, if you have 11 bots, I guess it's possible.

If an user, or a group of users, is playing the long con, he could create numerous alt accounts, like what the iron fist is doing. Then make numerous comments, and use other alt accounts to upvote it. And before being spotted, delete those accounts with comments/submissions wiped. Now, imagine executing this process in rotation with many other alt accounts, and then resurrecting them 3 months later. If that user does it often enough, the 3 months delay is nothing, since he is free to use other alt accounts.

Man this sucks!!

Blah, forgot a word from the title. "On one of my submissions".
