They’re all sent by a handful of recently created accounts.

Should there be an admin approval system for first posts, or something similar to slow down such attempts?

Edit 2: The brigaders are coming from /pol/ as found by @gun@lemmy.ml

Edit 3: They’ve now been banned. Thank you mods.

Btw, is there a rate limit for reporting posts? It occasionally shows the error: “Couldn’t create report.” when reporting them.

I think its a bug, I had it once just on a particular post.

I think we had that question before and maybe it was because it already had been reported by you? Maybe it sends twice or sth like that

It didn’t show the “Report successful” message.
It could’ve been that it succeeded but didn’t show the message, so I tried again which caused it to show the “Couldn’t create report.” error.

You’re doing that too much. Please complain again in 5 minutes.

Could they anyhow be connected with previous wave of antivaxxers?

Perhaps have a rule of presenting oneself before being allowed to post anything could filter them away.

Lemmy should require a minimum of time (or “karma”) before allowing to post or comment in any instance

How do you get karma without posting?

either there has to be a minimum time for account creation of be able to post (which can be circumvented) or you can post one article and then have to wait for upvotes (which can be circumvented)

Nice one, I was inaccurate. But you could gain it by completing some security or profile steps or with upvotes or comments, something that requires time in general

Shadowbans require constant moderation and can easily be abused by ‘powermods’ to silence objective opinions.

That’s one of the reasons reddit is so awful.

And you’re giving them the outrage they crave. Grow the fuck up and use the report button.

You’re not talking about it, you are FEEDING it.

Its a tale as old as the internet, especially with rightoids and low effort trolls. They have no real ideology of their own so they compensate by attacking anything else they may consider counter to their ideals which they have none of. That makes it extremely easy to push them towards attacking those someone with actual fascist ideals wants to silence (literal psyops).

Anyway, these front line psyopped trolls feed off the outrage of their targeted audience and get off on it. That’s what the majority of these trolls are after and will eventually give up unless you take the bait, which many here seem to have done. In their eyes they are succeeding by wasting your time by arguing with them instead of doing something constructive with your time.

Schools should have some kind of trolling awareness education because apparently even after decades of this shit, people still fall for it.

Edit: having said all that, I believe the word filter here also feeds into their delusions of success by overcoming it with an infinite number of obvious ways.

Feeding it would be engaging with the trolls. This post is just talking about the issue.
