I just purged around 200 accounts registered to the site that I am 99.9% certain were bots. There’s still some 300+ minimum left to purge, but I’m not in the mood for anymore purging at the moment.
Tip to bot creators: Don’t use stupid and obvious TLDs (.website, .top, .online) that I can search and destroy in bulk. Use Yahoo!, Hotmail, etc. they are much more difficult to check for. Another tip, lots of dots gives you away super quickly. “o…n…l..i….n.e..f…r…e.e..m…o….n.e…[email protected]” I mean, really? Did you think that wasn’t super noticeable?
One more thing, I came across an account: “[email protected]” – Is this someone I know personally? How else would some random person know that I’m a low life piece of shit? Is the secret out? Oh noes.
In other news: I’m very nearing a day of multiple releases. Be prepared! Also, I may host the new KanjiKana on GitHub since it’s purely client-sided now. Not sure honestly. It’s quite portable. My main issue at the moment is if I have to make updates, the cache will not purge on the client-side nor server-side for a few days here. I think GitHub updates faster, but I could be wrong.
Update 9/2/17: My definition of “near” is a little loose. I’m working on a bunch of projects back-to-back to make them release ready. So “near” could be next month. I promise that I’m getting them all prepared though.
