So we lately got quite a few signups that are not outright spam but that are commercial advertising accounts - sometimes it looks like personal projects, sometimes these are accounts that advertise some sketchy stuff in their bio - I think about changing our rules and forbidding anything commercial here - non-profit orgs are fine, personal accounts are fine, pushing your patreon link or whatever once a while for your personal project is fine - but we won't offer an account for commercial stuff.
@mt Who voted for adverts FFS?
@LydiaConwell maybe the spambots have finally become sentient? 😮 or, more likely, someone with a "great business idea" 🙄
@mt Something commercial in the local timeline, lately? Or do you refer to account registrations only?
