    I've started to create/ran some spam accs to promote my main. Although my comments aren't very obtrusive, they are still generic but long comments. I basically appraise their gallery and ask them to come see mine. I am starting to receive complaints. Not everyday, but enough to start getting me worried about possibly having my main acc ban.

    My followers list has grown in size and I have scraped my list and added to my spam accs blacklist. That is good, but it still doesn't prevent the 5% users they may still get irritated by my comments getting posted on their photos. My concerns are these type of people who aren't in my follower list that are blacklisted receiving my comments several times over.

    How are you guys dealing with it? Or there isn't anything else to do but to just add the complainers to my blacklist as it comes up?

    Mix and shorten your comments. If you can tell they are spam you're doing it wrong.

    I've experienced the same thing - a few messages here and there asking me to stop 'getting all my friends' to comment on their profile.

    Honestly, I haven't found a way to fully get around it. The best I can do is have each account follow a different hashtag, scrape photos only 5 at a time, and just hope for the best. But the way most people use 30 hashtags on just one photo means that there's still a chance they'll get commented on by two or more of my bots...

    You're not blending comments well enough. If they are obvious SPAM, then you're doing something wrong. You could try posting several messages, not all including your link.

    All my accs have different hashtags. There's no tags repeated. I made sure of that. However, like you said, they could have loads of tags that isn't really part of the image itself. The comments will land on their other photos at any point.

    I normally don't read my notifications either. I could have well missed other complains. So far I've found two and these two by looking at their feed are just haters. There photos are random and hardly any followers. But that is besides the point.

    I was told to not bot on the main and let your spam do it. There is less chance my main will get ban. Just my spam accs. Not sure why that is so as IG can easily trace back to my main with my @account link.
