Yo, just to put the issue out there:
Me and someone else are getting spammed by about 4 accounts that are downvoting each post as soon as they're made. Not pointing fingers at anyone, because I may be wrong and I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings. But I'm just saying, so that I'm not silent against a hidden bully. Like, just for clarification.

Anywayz, thanks for listening to my rant.

    Someone a while back was trying to keep numbers on ++'s to numbers like 22222 as well. If they are downvoting, eventually they will get downvote banned I would think.

    @Demolishun yeah but it's 4 different accounts. Like, this seems more targeted than just one or two people disagreeing. Plus, the downvotes all happen at the same time.

    Whom?

    No further questions?

    That should keep them at bay with the -- vote bans.

    @C0D4 errrr what are you doing? 😛

    @IntrusionCM idk. I did give a few people enough reason to hate me, but like, you never know. I don't get a downvote notif, so can't tell who they are.

    @NoMad Sounds like a bot of some sort.

    At first I thought it was a bit, cause it was instantaneous, but the next rant it took a couple of minutes, and this one it hasn't happened yet

    I legit would just leave this platform if I knew ppl are just disagreeing with me. But like, I did initiate the kick of that nutjob, unclesam, so he can't even come back to argue. Same with another asshat before him, the guy who said some nasty anti-semitic shit.
    So yeah. I have no one to blame but myself for triggering the chickenshits.

    @Demolishun or someone who's subscribed on one account and manually downvotes each time? Some ppl have no life.

    @Lyym he/she is either sleep, or outside. Give it a few hours. 😛

    @NoMad it would be hilarious if the person actually installed 4 browsers to log into 4 accounts to downvote, that is some dedication

    I'd given up on sanity of humanity a long time ago (I think I was 12?!)

    Remember... There are way more nutjobs out there than sane persons.

    And a lot of these nutjobs can't get off until they make anothers life at least as miserable as their own.

    Fuck those people. The more you piss them off, the more they show their true colors. Hiding is hard if your personality lights up like a christmas tree on easter - if u know what I mean ;)

    @IntrusionCM bringing winter into spring... Huh... Idk if I can handle that responsibility!! But I'll try! 😬

    If you learn who they are, let us know. And @dfox too, of course!

    Though I suspect it would be trivial for him to find out what’s going on.

    I got offended and downvoted you too. Bots' opinions matter! Don't try to suppress their votes!

    (jk, my votes haven't even been counted since I long time ago downvoted a spammer account too many times)

    Update: 15 ppl upvoted, shows eleven. Checks out.

    @electrineer again, if there was a specific reason in the post that I was being downvoted for, I wouldn't mind. But to be downvoted just cuz I exist, is bullying.

    Also, there must be a way to get out of downvote ban, isn't there?
  • 2
    I'm not sure what this is about or who is doing this, but I upvoted your every message in this thread to at least help offset the asshats trying to pull one over you.

    targeted downvoting is cowardly and spineless and I hope whoever is doing that will read this and know that I'm calling them such.

    (prolly wont, cause it might be a bot?)

    anyway, fuck this noise... if you disagree with someone say it out loud and don't be a retard about it...

    good luck NoMad!

    @NoMad I guess the only way is to nuke the account and create a new one

    The user doing this has now had all their accounts banned. Any time this happens, all their downvotes are also removed so your scores are not impacted at all.

    @NoMad I found this discussion https://devrant.com/rants/1134376/...

    The related bug is still open.
