Fascinating. Someone created an account yesterday advertising cockfighting in its profile. But the words were in Vietnamese. I dropped the ban hammer. The account owner is appealing the decision saying they just want to make friends. In the 25 years I’ve been battling spammers on various platforms, I’ve never had anyone try to challenge a decision (vs try again from a different IP address/email or move on to the next victim)
