Ugh...more annoying spam followers

Reblogged from Debbie's Spurts:

I have more than a hundred new followers again.  Do those nasty spam accounts create new ones every month or something?  Bitched about it again (and send emails to support until I get tired of it) and I've said something at http://booklikes.com/thread/477/how-to-report-bad-behavior- if anyone wants to add their voice.


I don't want to spend the time patrolling, evaluating and removing Westhill and other creepy spam accounts.  I hate having to open their *@£€^##<! page to see if real person or spam.  Granted it has gotten me to memorize the assholes' I will forever boycott ad wordings but that's no help for me to search out those phrases via search engine "phrase site:booklikes.com" because I cannot block unless they follow me to start with.


I'm at the point I want booklikes to allow us to set if we want to be able to refuse/accept requests to be a follower.  Why doesn't an account with no books, only following people and with only one post containing Westhill, consulting, real estate, group, etc. raise a red flag automatically to booklikes instead of me having to individually open each ad and then email it to booklikes?  Don't even get me started on how annoying it is on a tablet to get the little block symbol to appear so I can click it.  


I'm flipping serious that I'm leaving booklikes if there's no book database (I get that that might be a priority) next month and the same damn wording is around for ad accounts lurking to take advantage of increased membership and any new features useful to them.


Not sure if because it creeps me out that much or because it annoys me that much to spend that much time blocking and emailing,  Why should I waste my time to be their marketing target?
