I figured, "hey, why not look at the ToS?"

Prohibited:

Hmm. Wow.

Isn't this funny.

It should be a given that people know not to do these things.

Mei: Now I really want to give clearcreek a piece of my mind. That just makes me furious. These people are too cowardly and pathtic to pull this crap off in real life, so I guess they fuel their sick fantasies of being the star of the show and loved on here by manipulating people. I'd better stop before I really get going...hhmmmph.

I'm just glad that the other websites I'm on don't usually have this kind of problem.

I agree about OkayButWhy and and-again, and I'll add
http://www.colourlovers.com/lover/AwkwardWalrus
and
http://www.colourlovers.com/lover/Livi%20Lou
to the list.

Edith: ShadowApple12 is one of the accounts I initially connected to Erika & Co last summer when it was created, but they have mostly remained quiet and have not been on very often since the end of the summer.
I can't tell for sure, but the wording in the profile definitely looks familiar, and it fits the pattern of several other (mostly deleted) accounts which I had been watching back then.

After Erika & Co were briefly banned last year, and then allowed back, they made a slew of new accounts but these, and some extras which they already had, remained pretty much dormant, the busiest of them maybe creating a few things every few weeks, and not really drawing much attention to them.
(The person in question was probably busy trolling other forums...)
Anyway, behappy is one of those accounts.
Made last June, active until maybe July or so, from then on a few palettes a month, before for whatever reason about 2 month ago or so, she started turning up the volume, both in output, and in attention seeking, and gradually, more and more of those sleeper accounts started being used, and new ones added. And many miraculously found their way into her followers list...

Anyway, that seems to be the status right now.

As several of you have already said, it sickens me to be suspicious of people here, yet I find myself not trusting new members, especially those that claim to be very young and come across as very chipper, very involved.
And since there seems to have been a HUGE influx of these troll accounts since December, I am automatically wary of anybody who signed up in December or January.

I don't want to be, I am not naturally a suspicious person (believe it or not!), but I find myself closely looking over new members' profiles and the people they follow before I can bring myself to love their creations.
This is not a relaxing way to spend ones time...

What gets me even more though is seeing other, legit members, and especially those I care about, either not realize or not care that they are interacting with sockpuppets.
I hate seeing others being lied to, it's a pet peeve if you will, and so this is the big issue I have with these people.
Not that they are there.
But that other people unknowingly are friendly with them while they are essentially being taken advantage of by these trolls.

I have pretty much stopped communicating with most people on CL because of all that, especially new people.
This is definitely not the place it was when I first came here, which was not long ago at all compared to most of you.
