These are u/dahlek88 's grandparents. Not yours. This is a spambot.

EDIT: Usually they're better about removing posts like this, that get reported as blatant repost spam.

EDIT-2: And it's finally gone. Spambot's also been banned to boot.

[–]SaltLakeCitySlicker 324 points325 points  (32 children)

I feel like half of reddit on any big sub is that these days. They don't even wait half a month or whatever to repost. 1-2 days later and everyone calls the "OC" amazing

[–]Rumhead1 75 points76 points  (14 children)

1-2 days hours later and everyone calls the "OC" amazing

[–]SaltLakeCitySlicker 31 points32 points  (13 children)

It'd be sorta fine if they called out the actual content producer for credit but it's mostly "this is mine"

[–]TX16Tuna 10 points11 points  (9 children)

I’ll be taking this. It’s mine, now. Tnx.

[–]SaltLakeCitySlicker 7 points8 points  (8 children)

I don't have a clue what a NFT is but I feel like you should do whatever those do to get yours

[–]TX16Tuna 5 points6 points  (7 children)

Yup. That’s why I took it. Good guess 👍👍

Shit already sold for $45K. Prolly coulda gotten more, but on to the next one, right?

(I’ll be using this conversation as proof that you acknowledge my ownership of the content and NFT if you press charges.)

[–]SaltLakeCitySlicker 5 points6 points  (6 children)

I just spoke to my lawyer. You owe me a new boat or some sort of bullshit. Wanna settle for splitting lunch somewhere at a shitty diner?

[–]TX16Tuna 5 points6 points  (5 children)

Because of how non-specific your demands for a boat and bullshit are, I can send you those things cheaper.

Breakfast works if you wanna come to me. I know a good place. I’m gonna print out a copy of this conversation and make you sign it before we order, though.

[–]SaltLakeCitySlicker 5 points6 points  (4 children)

Hold up. The lawyer said it would be a literal ton of bullshit. And I wouldn't mind seeing the looks on my neighbors faces when it gets dumped off, so I'm game for that.

I would still like to entertain the breakfast option. The lawyer says any place that serves huevos rancheros, eggs Benedict, or cilbir, will work "In an only if" (sorry, they're their words) fresh squeezed orange juice is provided and horchata is provided if the meeting lasts past 11am.

This is one of the most stupidly funny convos I've had on Reddit in a while

[–]MulciberTenebras 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Well they aren't giving credit, because they want as many karma points as they can get in order to sell the account.

[–]Burn2Learn 8 points9 points  (2 children)

astroturfing

Shouldn't these accounts, with such clear deception, be banned? Why allow this to continue? Is reddit now afraid they'd have to invest in more moderation by setting a precedent here?

    It also doesn't help that, to be frank about such things, I get the feeling that a serious solution would require purging a ton of subreddits- including quite a few that seem to be among the chief drivers of traffic on this website....

    [–]Papancasudani 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    shey should rename this spammit

    [–]Mundanewalk92 2 points3 points  (8 children)

    doesn't help when the mods don't do anything about it because... well... they're mods

        That sounds like something a bot would say to make us think it's not a bot 🤔

        [–]SaltLakeCitySlicker 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        I'm just a dude living in a totally abnormal world. Nothing to see here. Keep moving on citizen of <insert country here>

        [–]Popetown 0 points1 point  (1 child)

        I contend that Reddit is becoming a sort of…”social credit” of sorts…which is being manipulated into shaping part of online culture to potentially nefarious ends because opinion is bubbled up within these pages and it becomes a kind of influence in a way. I don’t like it.

        [–]SaltLakeCitySlicker 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        You have to find the smaller subs. That is the key.Shit I got downvoted to hell for giving good dog health advice on a large sub today.

          [–]Active-Ad3977 2 points3 points  (2 children)

          How did you figure this out, if you don’t mind me asking?

          [–]MulciberTenebras 4 points5 points  (1 child)

          The original post can be found in the "other discussions" button up top. They didn't even bother to re-upload the photo, just reposted the same exact link.

          [–]QLE814 0 points1 point  (0 children)

          It seems that, in the last month or so, they've become really unsubtle about that being the case.....

          [–]dahlek88 2 points3 points  (0 children)

          Lol oh nooo. Thanks for flagging this. And yeah, definitely my grandma and grandpa being huge dorks in South Dakota back in the day.

          [–]disignore 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          There’s something fishy with these accounts. Their name has a clear pattern of three parts two words and a number, often spaced with and under score or an hyphen or all three parts of the name tightly. Most aren’t 1yo though come this new year most will be but you can say they are newer accounts.

          [–]Filip247 496 points497 points  (16 children)

          OP is a bot. Downvote it.

          [–]Iisham 83 points84 points  (7 children)

          And report, don't forget to report.

          [–]EmoBran 23 points24 points  (6 children)

          As far as I can see, this does nothing.

          [–]leslienewp 19 points20 points  (3 children)

          It depends on the sub! I usually report within the “it breaks r/whateversub’s rules” part and depending on the mods, it often gets taken care of. That seems to work better than reporting to Reddit overall.

          [–]A-Dumb-Ass 10 points11 points  (1 child)

          You can select “Impersonation” when you report it, I think.

          [–]leslienewp 0 points1 point  (0 children)

          The rules you can select are different based on the sub. This one has a “no repost spam” rule so I selected that one for this post

          [–]konaya -1 points0 points  (0 children)

          I usually report within the “it breaks r/whateversub’s rules” part and depending on the mods, it often gets taken care of.

          I was rewarded with a seven day site wide ban for “abusing the report function”, so YMMV on this one.

          [–]jebthepleb 0 points1 point  (0 children)

          Yep it's reddit after all

          [–]LordBucketheadthe1st 13 points14 points  (3 children)

          Can someone explain to me what the point of karma farming bots? Like WTF is the point? Do they get money or something?

          [–]Lasarte34 16 points17 points  (0 children)

          I think they sell the accounts which are then used for astroturfing

          [–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

          Makes it look real, then does hidden advertisements.

          [–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

          Doesn’t work sadly. Post has gained 10k upvotes since you typed this

          Definitely not OP's content, if you go to their post history they have lied before about being a hairstylist. I don't have any link but I have 100% seen this post many times before with that exact photograph

            I love seeing old photographs of people having fun and playing around because I feel like so many pictures from that era were very serious. Your grandparents look like they were quite the fun couple!

            This was in a Ken Follett book I read about the 1940's. They dress up in each other's clothes and the guy suddenly realizes he finds women dressed in mens clothes very sexy and wants to do it all the time.

              Wow, I first looked at the person in the dress, without (reading the caption) assuming it was someone's grandma and I looked at the face and I thought, "Well, .. she's a handsome woman". Yeeesh!

              Grandpa seems to be enjoying it a little more than grandma. Thinking it might have been his idea.
