PSA: botsin.space, spam
for context, there have been around 250 accounts that signed up in the last month which i've suspended for spam. Something like 175 of those were in the last week. They've sent thousands of spam statuses out. I've slowly ramped up tools to prevent that until this point.
re: datacenters, i pulled a set of 40 unique ip address of spammers. i can identify 35 of them as being in a datacenter. blocking those is an easy choice at that point.
