    Hello guys,

    Making this thread because I've never seem this discussed before but I have already come across this message twice, I'm attaching a screenshot from it and I removed the private and sensitive information from it.

    So I've noticed this message already twice once I check the account of someone who does massive followings (MP, FollowLike, etc) I first saw this message a couple of weeks ago also on the profile of an account that clearly was using a bot to follow and unfollow.

    Anyone seen this before?

    What do you think causes it, the follows? Or maybe the result that people who do a lot of "follows" also end up being blocked a number of times and flagged like Spam?

    Discuss bellow ✌️

    Seems the admins are getting smarter these days and the blackhat ways will soon have to evolve.

    Since I don't see this being talked too much I wonder if they are beta testing it and I happen to be on the Beta. Also keep in mind I can only see this message from the account that I was followed. When I check the account with the Spam banner from a different account their profile looks normal

    Interesting. I haven't come across one of these yet but I would assume high volumes of likes, follows, and unfollows is how they are tracking it.
