Comments are reopened, but only to subreddit regulars.

As per our last post, we had to close comments for a while recently due to bot activity. We have figured out a way to prevent the bots from commenting, but because it can't really tell who is and isn't a bot, it means that new users will also be unable to comment. Sorry about that, but there's not much we can do about it. Our anti-bot bot is shutting down, and the bot we use to automatically ban users who use karma-farming and scam subreddits has been offline for a month. Reddit still does not provide any tools to deal with these issues, besides the very imprecise one we are currently using to restrict comments.

If you'd like to participate in a space with fewer issues with bots, and less social media company bull****, please join us on our Lemmy community.

Unfortunately, due to bot activity, we have to close comments.

Hi everyone. Really sorry about this. There's currently a plague of bots going around Reddit promoting TEMU by making spam comments on posts to try to drive traffic to their profiles. I just finished removing several dozen, but according to SpambotSwatter they are currently submitting comments at a rate that has led to a 200k+ backlog in their spam detection system. Because these can't be detected by AutoModerator, the fact that our normal bot for banning users like this is down (possibly forever,) and Reddit doesn't provide any other tools to help with this kind of influx, we will have to close the subreddit to comments until Reddit provides us with tools to deal with this wave of bots.

In the meantime, if you'd like to partake in discussion, please visit our Lemmy community.
