I sense the making of a Neighborhood Crime Watch on Crunchy in the near future.

I haven't seen exactly what you describe, but I do notice that a similar recent "egg"splosion from the past week or so seems to have been defused...


I was going to mention this too. Suddenly....eggs. Tried googling it but no dice, so maybe it's some terrible new attempt at a trend.

People like to be fake on the internet. The whole fake profile thing happens on every social network. Either because people are scammers or they're just dreadfully insecure and can't use their own face for attention-seeking endevours.

I've noticed many. I've originally been here since 2008 and in the past 2 years I've noticed a rise in fake accounts. It can sometimes be tough to distinguish between someone using a picture of a Tumblr girl and someone who does the same thing, but is either a) lying about their identity or, b) has multiple accounts. I've noticed an entire network of these specific profiles, all friends with one another. It can be quite suspicious.

I like to vote that you're crazy (Not Really)...because when you call someone crazy, everything is A. OK! And no one cares what crazy people do, as long as they know you're crazy. For me at least.

I don't think we have to worry because even if we are having a problem with fake accounts, I trust that CR will handle it.

Why is this news? It's the world wide web, this is to be expect. My advice is to research their profile if they're trying to add you. But obviously, don't throw out false accusations without evidence.
What about me? My profile was made just days ago, am I fake? I mean, I don't have 100+ friends, but even new accounts that do, it's not evidence. It could be that they were gone for a while, but came back and made a new account and added all their friends from before(sadly, most of my buddies are no longer active). I've been here since the founding of this site in 06, and this has never been an issue.

I think I actually know which account you are talking about... Not gonna name any tho. It's true that they don't watch anime and really I think they're doing this for attention cause the only thing that the person did was guestpost.

None of the accounts you defined, but I have noticed a rise in advertising and spam accounts.

I haven't seen any accounts that fit the behavior/description you're giving but I have run into quite a few new members. Whether they're actually fakes or not is up for debate but I'm pretty sure the mods are on top of things.
