ok, Mrs Fish has found out that when an account is hijacked it first sends out a bunch of friend requests. Only after adding a few friends does it add the sex spam.
So there is no way of being able to tell if you get a friend request if it's a hijacked account or not. However you should be able to work out that if they have not posted anything for a year or so it may be hijacked.
I have a feeling that a really well known member who hasn't been around for a while has been hijacked. I don't know what to suggest!
After really pushing DS I was told DS are closing the hijacked accounts. If the rightful owners want them re-opened they have to contact DS to do so. I've asked DS to confirm they are actually contacting the people whose accounts have been closed but no answer so far.
I also asked DS to put something up on the boards themselves rather than "we are looking into it" but again, nothing so far.
I have made a note of the accounts you have reported but for now I'm not sending them in. The hijacking has not ended - it's still happening and I think at an increasing rate. I'd prefer DS spend time working on sorting the root cause and stop the bot first.
You can probably tell I'm pretty pissed at DS (after having a history of being pissed at them).
Jan and I are constantly in contact and we will keep monitoring stuff and keep you informed.
I've been pondering whether or not I should just write about this situation today. I actually frustrated myself to the point that I wasn't paying attention, and ended up falling. So here is my ramble...In October of last year, I started spending time with a man who was a facebook friend for something like 4 years at the time. My observations of him were that he was kind, generous and...
