There were 3 more when I first logged into the site that have since disappeared from the front page, but these are all the "new member" yellow and all just kinda.. strange. Is there a bot creating diaries on here? If so, how is it getting past the "are you a human" safeguards? If not, who is creating these diaries?

If they're not spam, then I humbly apologize, but they look like spam. Did anyone else notice this?

That's spam plain and simple.

I don't want bloop to be like a freaking advertisement :(

I don't either :( It sucks. I don't know what Steve or the Doc or the team would/could do about it but I hope it's short-lived!

There were two others I saw...one for vibrators (or something like that, I just saw the name and thought WTH?) and one for dog grooming. They just seemed off because the showed up within a few minutes/hours of each other and the screen names looked similar. Like the Jose5725Clark one....they had a word-4 numbers -word pattern to them.

Is there any way to block these kinds of diaries from appearing in the first place?

If there's links its usually so they can get you to click and infect your computer with something or another. Usually adware or a trojan. :(

True, but I hadn't noticed any links in the ones that I'd checked out. Maybe I just wasn't paying attention.

All the spam ones I've seen had links at the bottom of the entry. I'm not sure what the purpose would be without them o.O

Yeah, I was a little taken aback by the complete and total randomness of the entry. Im kind of curious as to how these bots manage to make a diary & all that jazz.

Hope staff can find a way to keep them away for good.

Is there any way to stop them before they even start the diary? I mean like something in the "register a new diary" part?
