A lot of spam bots named "Alice" hitting Mastodon today...
@astamite honestly i was thinking that but i'm not super familiar with mastodon's codebase nor ruby so i wouldn't know the best place to implement it.
seems okay for now though.
@nathan Ooh, for future reference, this may be the way to go. With this you could probably do it in bulk in the command line: https://docs.joinmastodon.org/admin/tootctl/#accounts
@astamite a bash loop from 1000 to 9999 would make that *very* convenient actually... let's see what the situation is like when i wake up tomorrow.
@nathan I do like that spambots seem to exclusively target horny people. Maybe spammers secretly love ace folks
(I got a DM from one as well lol)
@nathan Seems like a good way to implement something like that would be with a bot that uses the API. Never done something like that myself, so wouldn't even know where to start.
A Mastodon server friendly towards anti-fascists, members of the LGBTQ+ community, hackers, and the like.
