I first noticed it in this thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5051956.msg47094011#msg47094011

4 accounts with similar sounding names all posted a generic one liner (two of them exact copies of each other) within the space of 3 minutes. I found it suspicious and decided to go digging.

Turns out there are many accounts following the same pattern of behavior. A random selection of usually 4 (occasionally between 2 and 5) of the below accounts will show up in a thread and all post a spammy one liner in the space of a few minutes. It's their entire post history and is happening constantly - enough to conclude all these accounts are part of an alt farm. I had started to link to threads and make screenshots, but there's no point - just click on literally any post by any of the accounts below and you will see what I mean. I'm sure I'm only scratching the surface here.

This is very likely preparation for ICO bump service, I've seen it many times.
They usually spam forum and after some time they start bumping announcement threads. They can't really go directly with brand new accounts into ICO threads because it will be too obvious.
Just give them some time, they will start building little quote pyramids in no time - and then report them and team which hired them.

Yeah. Although technically they are breaking the rules by multiposting and spamming in every thread they post in, there's nothing they've done yet that would get them banned.

Certainly need to keep an eye on them as they are likely being farmed up to either bump threads, abuse bounties or be sold.

That's what you think; the opposite has been true with every rating that I've received. Not that that matters mr. Pajeet. Why are you so butthurt? Did I reject many of your alts recently? Did The Pharmacist tag a lot of them? Cry

A bunch more, all signed up 26/10/18, all with the same name pattern, all following the same posting pattern of 4 accounts making a similar one liner in the space of 2 minutes.

2451476 - Legoaseth06
2451480 - Hayseth23
2451489 - Unerralind05

2451594 - Chielath22
2451597 - Jerireg05
2451603 - Crelakoth02
2451605 - Adwigossi1

Is there nothing we can do about this? We just have to wait for the accounts to be farmed up, abused or sold, and then tag them? Seems counterproductive to just watch all these accounts spam the forum knowing full well they will be used for nefarious purposes as soon as they can be.

Sorry for the double post, but I want this bumped to try to get an answer on this.

This account farm is now at well over 100 accounts, and is adding 20 more account every day. At least 5 of the accounts1 have earned a lucky merit within 2-3 days, so I'm sure within a couple of weeks there will plenty of these accounts with the 1 merit required to display a signature.

I refuse to believe that there is nothing we can do about this, and we just have to sit and twiddle our thumbs while watching these 100+ (and growing) accounts spam and then start abusing bounties, bumping threads, or being sold. Why, when we have such clear evidence of abuse, do we have to be reactive rather than proactive in tackling it?

DT can't tag them - because this is moderation problem. Moderator can nuke them - but then we will see hundred new accounts.

I don't see any other solution than newbie jail. That will solve many problems and make this forum better place.
