We all know of these annoying bot blogs don’t we? The ones which post links of untagged porn sites and webcam chat rooms, most of which are likely to contain viruses or be some sort of scam.
Well, if I am not mistaken, Tumblr needs to do something about them. Not just because it’s disgusting and exposes minors to this stuff, but because it goes against the community guidelines.
“Be a regular human,” bots aren’t human
Don’t use deceptive means to generate revenue or traffic, or create blogs with the primary purpose of affiliate marketing,” Pretty sure these bots are advertising their chat rooms and stuff and trying to generate traffic.
“Spam doesn’t belong on Tumblr,” So get rid of the spam bots then!
Even putting the Spam section aside, the section below covers bots.
- Mass Registration or Automation. Don’t register accounts or post content automatically, systematically, or programmatically
DON’T REGISTER ACCOUNTS OR POST CONTENT AUTOMATICALLY, SYSTEMATICALLY, OR PROGRAMMATICALLY.
These bots are violating Tumblr’s community guidelines and the website is doing nothing about it.
Please, @staff fix this. Fix this as soon as possible.
