You're going to help dev Voat's comment plugin right? ;)

I might take a stab at it. I was meaning to ask if there was anything you wanted help with since I've been getting into C# for Unity but I'd much rather help with something more JS oriented like this anyway.

I don't even think there's 10... the only people under 20 that I know of are me and Techius, who has jumped ship to whateverthefuckthatplaceis.

If that obvious spammer gets around the report and no one does anything about it hes definitely a Russian hacker trying to influence us.

It's been said before, but stuff like this is what keeps us around. You clearly love the place and care about the users, and we appreciate you for it. Thanks once more.

This is a trickier thing for us to do actually because of the way caching works.

I can't promise anything in this area because we have a lot of more important work to do.

It's on the list of things to research.

Unless people will be blocking 100+ users you could also store it client side. But I guess that's what AVE is for.

Apparently the libtards have taken over today. I'd stay back and let them get triggered away for a few days, then it'll be back to normal here.

pure awesome! On another note, is there a built in maximum for accounts blocked? i'm thinking of the down vote bots from Lord Sparticus and several other factions that champion a cause on occasion.

We are actively working on alt detection and will be dealing with this problem very soon. The good news is we have all the data we need to test against.

Vote manipulation destroys credibility in our platform and community and can not continue.

Accounts that would naturally be throttled are supported by upvotes and accounts that are brigaded are restricted. It's the opposite of how the system is supposed to function.

Does Voat have an official stance on alts?

When you say alt detection do you plan to reveal to users what accounts are alts of who or do you consider this to be PI/Dox and something to be protected if possible?

I have discovered one method of up voting your own posts a single time, and a theory of how the bots could function to brigade multiple votes on a single post. would you prefer if i post it in a reply or would a pm be preferred?

Maybe lock upvotes and down votes when you raise minimum ccp in a sub? That will prevent alt farms.

god speed on working out these issues, i'd very much like to know if voat is as much an echo chamber as is currently presented and what merit there is to the rampant speculation that all dissenting voices come from the same source.

Lord Spartacus doesn't exist any more. I should know, I used to be him.

Check /u/thunderlark's profile. It no longer exists.

Voat really owes a lot to and the many users who have helped by reporting spam for their thankless work in this area, so when you don’t see spam, think of these unsung heroes.

Thank you Cynabuns. Knowing that reports are taken seriously is thanks enough. FWIW there has been less spam.
