I think we’ve all noticed bots being present in the subreddit by now, but I feel as if it’s getting increasingly worse as of lately. Yes, we’ve got regular shitposters (including myself), repeat content and jokes getting milked to the maximum, but these bots are on another level.

Would be interesting to hear if the Mods had any stats on these type of accounts or if they noticed this increase as well.
Anyone have an idea on how we could potentially combat this? It’s certainly a sensitive issue, as we can’t tell for sure which accounts are bots and which are just ***really*** unoriginal posters. Increasing certain standards to post would also effect actual new users, which is something we don’t want. Definitely not an easy thing to fix, if any fix is even possible, except for downvoting the posts of course.
