I think I'll stop accessing devRant for a couple of days. I doubt this bot would stop anytime soon. Someone is severely depressed and socially rejected. Instead of getting help, they do this. No one seem to like their posts or get any attention from their real accounts so now they do this kind of shit. Pathetic. Get a life and stop being a loser.

    *disabled notifs*
    It's a shame some low life script kiddy has to go and ruin it.

    @C0D4 I tried not to post about it to not bring the attention its seeking the first time around but I think this guy is deeply troubled to create another one. It might create another. I don't have notifications enabled but I'm not sure how these events reflect on dfox's wallet. :/

    Should just implement an API rate limit of some kind. I doubt there's any legit use for the API that requires you to post multiple comments per second. Maybe temporarily lock people out of the API entirely if they blast it with too many requests in a row.

    @rutee07 can't be to good pushing several thousand notifications through the pipes.

    Guess we'll see what comes of it though, but until then, I can't see this one ending anytime soon.

    @rutee07 looks like devrant is fast finding out why the "give open api access to everything" model tried in the mid 2000's doesn't work in practice.

    Really hacks me off, because it'd be a brilliant model if it wasn't for these inconsiderate asshats.

    Looks like it's over again, faster this time.

    @theabbie how's that tiktaktoe bot going?

    Is it just me or a rants being removed from the feed - not just the spammed ones - like this one?

    @C0D4 I am figuring out tictactoe algorithm, and reading comments from notifications, Might finish soon

    Oh, so it wasn't just me! My comments are borked.

    1. What do the comments say?
    2. Why don't I see this rant in the feed? I'm even subscribed to OP here.
    3. Roughly, what is the rate of comments? Like, how many per second? Is it enough for us to - - his ass to oblivion?

    @NoMad
    1) "nice"
    2) no idea, I thought it was just me
    3) 13k in 10-20 min.

    @C0D4 aight. So comment rate more than 20 times a minute, could be a good disabling rate.

    Also, I think it has targeted specific users. The rest seem to be fine.
  • 3
    @NoMad yea some throttle should cover it. 10-20 a minute would be more then enough for the normal user to never hit, hell I doubt the bots that behave never see that many requests.

    It looks like all the rants - there was several - that were complaining about it have been --'d and removed from the feed or the feed just can't find them.

    @dfox?
  • 3
    @C0D4 yeah, seems like the feed is also a bit picky at this point.
    Foxy might be actively debugging right now. It sucks real bad tbh, that we all get to be restricted because of one ass hat who has been unpopular in school and now wants revenge like a psycho.

    Then still, how does my notif count show 99 when there's less than 20?
  • 2
    I got 99 notifs but 0 shows up in the list

    @linuxxx take a peek through this door 🚪

    @linuxxx 🤔 good question. Does a deleted comment still get a notif?

    Either ban the account or limit its activities

    @rutee07 This is why executions can be justified.
