WSO has a bot problem

Even ignoring the obvious 20+ spam posts for some African voodoo, there's been a weird thing happening to me for some time. Almost anytime I post a comment or thread, I get 1 or 2 silver bananas instantly, like within a minute, sometimes even a second.

Anyone else experience this? Is WSO doing anything? Not that I mind free bananas.

I had a similiar glitch type thing in the past with a different account. It like counted every banana as double or something like that. I don't have access to the account nor remember it by now I don't think so not sure what to tell you. Just thought you may appreciate that info. But maybe you do just have people who follow you and instantly banana your stuff. Idk. Good luckΒ

I think Patrick said recently that for certain users and certified users there is an auto banana algorithm for certain posts.

Not even the free bananas. If you scroll on recently active, there's not accounts that post obnoxiously spammy posts that tell you to call a number or click on a website and have a bunch of emojis. Mods can't regulate that but are censoring posts? Smh
