A lot of spam bots named "Alice" hitting Mastodon today...


Banned them all locally. Can't really do much more than that.

Also it takes 4 clicks per account to fully remove them. Definitely not ideal...

@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: docs.joinmastodon.org/admin/to

@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.
