Heads up to LJ Comm owners
Some of you have probably already come across this, however, as it's continuing I thought I'd pass the 'news' on.

There's a person (or more than one person) setting up different LJ accounts and joining a plethora of comms to which they are duly posting porn vids - or vids that I understand link to a porn site.

I've had four over the last few days post/try to join my comms. Each one I'm reporting to LJ as a bot and also banning. These things can be done from their profile page via the little 'figure' next to their user name.

They are fairly easy to spot as their journal is empty and they will have joined 100+ comms.

The latest IDs are pamelahunt310 and madelynestes418 and kaylalevy490k.

LJ does seem to be quick to suspend their journal, as the first one I came across has been suspended. However, I imagine we'll be in for several days (I hope it's not longer) of this until the person (or people) get bored. Like most Mods I don't want to put all my comms on moderated posting nor do I want to put them all so that membership has to be approved. It's just a case of being vigilant and deleting the post as soon as it appears, reporting them and banning them. Very irksome to say the least.

That's my view as well. It's still a bugger of a thing to deal with *sigh*

It is a bugger, it really is. It hit two more of my comms a while ago.

*Shakes head*

I've been monitoring the_safehouse membership on a daily basis. My last check was about 4 hours ago, and there was nothing unusual then. I'm pretty sure it's a bot *grump*

This person (people) now has two more IDs. One applied for membership of the only comm I do have on moderated membership; the other I saw on my flist. Both names have been reported and banned.

It is so annoying. It didn't happen to comms that I'm modding, but too a lot of those I'm a member of.

It's very annoying indeed.

It's popping up on comms I'm a member off as well as those I Mod. I just hope the person tires of the game soon.

I hope so too. But then again, we had this problem earlier and it didn't last long. So I hope it won't be different now.
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 23rd September 2010 15:05 (UTC) (Link)
That's true.

*Fingers crossed*

Person is up to three different IDs today! I came across two more, one via a request to join the G/D comm and the other on my flist.

Madness. *shakes head*

Yeah, I've been reporting them as well. You can also run your cursor over their user pic right from your LJ and then use the ban and report a bot options. You notice they join the comms in alphabetical order. Idiots.

Hopefully people will go on reporting them and finally they'll tire of it.

Indeed you can. I like to double and triple check the journal and profile page to get an idea of where else they might be popping up.

Esk. Terrible. What some people will do...

It hasn't happened to me...so far...maybe it won't last too long. :(
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 24th September 2010 11:14 (UTC) (Link)
Daft really to keep on doing it. I'm guessing it's the same person/people. I hope they tire of it soon. I've had three of the IDs try to join G/D and have taken great pleasure in refusing them membership *g*

I hope it won't happen. I don't know how they 'choose' comms.
