It seems this community is being targeted by ad bots. I see all of them come from a @szmer.info instance (or?). Maybe it should be banned?

    They are still running 18.1, I’m not sure how actively managed the instance is

      Ouch, that’s definitely way out of date and has several critical bugs in it that are unpatched.

      I brought the spam issue from that instance to the attention of the admins for LW, they’re going to take a look into it. Will keep an eye out for more spamming today.

        Anything other than the custom emoji one? We’re one of the oldest instances, running with limited resources and update when we either have the time and energy for that, or when we have to.

        As for spam: we block spam accounts from other instances before their own mods nearly daily, including from the biggest ones. Chill.

      It is, to the point of developing it’s own deployment system to be able to run lemmy on bare metal in a way we see fit, as opposed to the unpredictable cycle and frustrating process of using the main packages.
