User ptc-5208287 kudo'ing all posts?

SOLVED

Re: User ptc-5208287 kudo'ing all posts?

The "kudo-bot" is back today, maybe an encore performance??

 

I guess the "ban" wasn't permanent.

I noticed that too! I was just going to check on that.

Hi, "ban" is reset.  Thanks!  JL

And the mystery thickens.  Who is this masked ku-do-errr?

Re: User ptc-5208287 kudo'ing all posts?

As others have alluded to I wouldn't be surprised if it is a bot that is setup to scrape the forum. There are other websites that use scraped data from PTC community posts with (sometimes) better Google page ranks in order to harvest ad revenue.

 

The bot likely follows all of the links in the email to scrape more data. One of the links it is following is the kudo link which in turn is kudoing all of the posts.

At this point, the user simply needs to be PERMANENTLY deactivated.

Hi there

 

This is happening to me since today, all my answers are kudo'd right away ... I do appreciate that my answers are indeed great ( 🙂 ) but this does look odd.

 

Was this user disabled at some point ?

 

Thanks

Christophe

Hi, this user had a temporary ban placed on it that ended.  Lithium is investigating what is happening with this user.  It is easier if they can analyze the action in real-time.  If I don't hear anything today I will set up another temporary ban, but don't be surprised if your kudo count goes down when we remove this account completely.

 

But, I am sure you all deserve many kudos 😉
