Users of this forum who have been active yesterday evening may have seen a name pop up as the last poster in many threads and boards - Pierre11 https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=177007

I found it when it had made 29 posts in less than an hour, mostly junk as expected. As I watched it unfold the incredible run ended at 64 posts in a little over 3 hours. Why did Pierre11 suddenly get the post bug?

Turns out Pierre11 was kept as collateral with Candystripes (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=828280.0) 3 days past default he decided to act and went ahead to boost the activity past Sr. member. His calculation seems to have been wrong as it 'only' went to 238, so he stopped posting at 242. Poor Candystripes now have to wait for the next activity upgrade to sell a Sr. Member account.

It would be interesting to see exactly how many times our indefatigable poster has boosted and sold accounts. A few days back I enquired about the availability of an account nor9865 (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=59502), which was listed in his loan thread as having defaulted and account taken back.

LOAN LOG:

Wait! There is no mention of nor9865 here, but I could have sworn it was there a few days back. So I looked into his thread and on the second page found nor8965's 'loan request'

All good!

Strange. Funnily enough just scrolling down that page shows Candy giving the loan

Loan Amount: 0.08 btc
Collateral: On PM
Date Of Repayment: October 13, 2014
Interest: 15% can be negotiated
Reason: For personal use
Address: 1N1K4X56Eb9b7qdqdRF2CgWkFhMp8MDM99




Loan has been sent:

https://blockchain.info/tx/5116fe0c0b0183901919c65649ab8009734b0d7cceaab4d1dc411291366be41d

Please repay 0.092 on or before October 13th to: 1CandyPE2zp8TQ55BA9gUP4qgVHzzPdDQ7

Ooops! Candy forgot to edit that post.

Candy, through nor9865, has been posting once every two weeks. I bet the potential activity is still short of that a Sr. Member's one. The account is now being used to collect potential activity points, and when it passes 240, we will see another spammathon! There may have been more in the past, or indeed more waiting to happen through accounts we aren't aware of.

This is a very interesting event happening here, and its due to an unique combination of how activity works, accounts being traded, and different account levels getting different signature and consequently earning privileges. Add trust to the mix and it becomes a complicated mess with various posters finding many ways to game it.

Post this in the 'Scam Accusation' section. It's pretty obvious this problem would arise via account -/+ loan ordeals. Wasn't online at the time.

This has to be the worst possible way to account farm.

If you see spam, just use the Report button below the post on the right end. The successful percentage changes which will indicate to you whether it has been successful or not.

It got sorted so conveniently just after I made the thread Smiley

In the interest of completeness, I should mention that I received a message from nor9865 that the account has been bought.

If you see spam, just use the Report button below the post on the right end. The successful percentage changes which will indicate to you whether it has been successful or not.

I reported, and it says 100% success. The account is still active I am not sure what happened.

I believe an account won't be banned for making just a few spamming posts.
You found the users making tens of spamming post, but you probably just reported a few of them right? Then the mods won't know how bad the spam was.

It was more then a few. Didn't someone say around 70 posts in a very short period of time? The mods could have checked his recent posts.

Candystripes had made the account get to ~240 posts, and the account has ~175 posts now (although some were made after the spam was deleted) so 70 is about right.

I saw the account on several threads (probably at least 15) with 100% useless posts that added absolutely nothing to the conversation and what I would consider to be spam.

Candystripes posts in the lending section are also very sketchy and I would say there is a good chance he will end up scamming

Very brave of you to post here, considering you are now trying to post 50 times to fill your quota to get signature payout. Already at 37 posts over the past day.

Candystripe is the kind of person that will scam when it makes sense for him to do so.

Trust me on this - I have significant experience in Bitcoin lending.

Also, mods should ban Candystripe for spamming.

It doesn't mean anything if I delete them, the activity and everything goes back down. Also, how are my posts sketchy. I give no-collateral loans and I will never loan for collaterals only.

Being called a scammer, by a big-time scammer means nothing to me. I won't get banned because I never spammed or scammed on this account, and I never will.
