So as you have noticed it, some times we're getting attacked by a couple of bots that spam stuff related to black magic and whatnot. What I am going to ask you here is to:
  • Ignore the threads first of all.
  • Do not click the links they provide at all.
  • Do not call the phone numbers either (if any posted in the thread).


I'll continue removing the threads until someone will be able to fix it.

Thank you Wulftstan, finally authority had spoken!

Must be tough for you to delete the threads ONE BY ONE.

Did you ban the accounts?

I unfortunately cannot ban. These were present on the PoE forums as well, maybe I'll see if I can ask for some help there on how they dealt with them.

Thanks Wulfstan for taking care of it.

But seriously, it's only 2-3 bot accounts that were created only to spam.

Just ban them and problem solved?

I just banned all the accounts and I'm going to blacklist the content they've shared.

Sorry for the inconvenience, everything is fine now!

Sniped them. Hades also banned the other bot as well.
