This morning, I deleted another batch of “new subscribers” – 99 out of 100 of them certain spammers (and bots). There were a few, though, who may have been real people. (I won’t reveal my reasons for suspecting that as it would help the spammers.) spam pic

But I deleted them nonetheless.

Why? Because they had yet to post a comment – and did not respond to an e-mail I sent each one advising them as follows:

If you’re on the above list, you recently subscribed to – or maybe not. We get thousands of fake subscribers  – spammers and bots – and delete them on an ongoing basis. 
To avoid this happening to you – assuming you’re a real person and not a bot or spammer – please respond to this e-mail with a short note along the lines of I am a real person! Or, better yet, post a comment on the site. This will help us flush the spammers and keep EPautos for the actual humans. 
PLEASE NOTE: If we don’t hear from you within 24 hours, your account will be deleted as presumed spam!   

So, to reiterate: If you’re new, if you’ve just signed up as a subscriber, please post a comment (or just introduce yourself!) so as to help us separate the wheat from the chaff. It’s on ongoing hassle – and your understanding is much appreciated.

Also: We still have stickers! Get one today – and help keep EPautos a going thing!
