I thank everyone who has helped make this list grow, please share it around with everyone so it can help all users. My original journal has over 1k in view, let's keep it up so more people will see and will spread the word.
Not many know how to BLOCK
people here on dA,
has helped many with understanding on what to do and how to do it. Continue reading the journal and learn!
This and the original journal will be updated whenever I get new names for the list of spammer accounts. Make sure you read this list and add it to your block list. You can also spread this journal around so many can see what's going on.
I have also added those of sexual harassment, users like them need to be banned from dA for harassing users (mostly targeting female users). This will not be tolerated for male and female users that are being targeted for sexual harassment, if they tell you to leave them alone and you don't, YOU WILL BE ADDED TO THIS LIST! You have been warned.
I've been checking friend journals that mention of accounts and find even some commenting their journals, one of my friend journals is constantly hounded with many 'new member' accounts ran by the same person who is targeting anyone that is my friend's friend or commenting those journals and targeting them in hate speech and threatening to kill them.
DeviantART staff needs to find out who that guy is and ban him for making death threats to many users and spamming their accounts with hate speech, threats and vulgar wording.
*There are accounts also added of users stealing money from fellow dA artists by scamming them into thinking they had commissioned someone when they haven't. PayPal accounts will be spammed by invoices claiming payment is due, know who you commission. And there are also the same users on the list who have also harass nonstop for points or scamming of points on here.
Just so you know, whenever I get a new name for the list, I update it. So keep checking now and then and update your block list!
---I got hit with spam bots, and many of the accounts are apparently normal users that go inactive after a few years or weeks, some are active and other accounts are over 6 years but with no activity besides spamming.
deviantART, do some damn work and deal with these damn hackers and spammers! You suck at taking them down let alone improving security. Stop giving us these 'cool features' and do your duty and protect our accounts from this.
I'm sorry if I had to block you but your account kept spamming me and I will not tolerate spam!
Also included are people who are trolls, people making harassment and threats, spreading spam, targeting others for being friends with someone, hate speech and many more.
DeviantART staff, do something about these people!
How to tell if they're a spammer is simple, they will say something either with Caps On All Words like that, say something strange or say something about your art or gallery and all of them will provide a LINK for you to click on.
DO NOT CLICK! They will either give you a virus, allow them to hack your account, or take you to a porn site. Many fall for these tricks, do not click links from strangers.
Tell your friends that if your account starts doing that, have them alert you instantly so you can try and fix the problem.
Further more, pass this list along and help stop some of these accounts before it's too late.
What can you do? You can send a ticket to dA and report the accounts and if you want to protect yourself from future attacks, just block these accounts.
If you see a deviation with a spammer, copy their username and send it to me to add to this growing list. That way many others, even you, can protect yourself from these morons.
Here is a list of spam accounts you can block, add them to your block list.
Just go to settings, Personal, hit General, then scroll down to Blocked. Copy the list and paste, don't worry for double names of the same account, the double copy will be deleted from the list.
Here is a visual of how to block
(Thank you Wonder for this suggestion in visual.
I suggest up update your block list whenever I update this list so you'll be ready for it! Thank you. What you do is highlight all the names on the list, and copy them, follow
guide above and you'll be fine.
More will be appearing, just wait and see. If you have found spam accounts or were hit by them, send me their name and I'll add them to the growing list! Don't be shy and let me know! Make sure you block these accounts and report them.
