Tumblr tags.

Post by LeSkuh on Sun Apr 03, 2016 6:17 pm

Just wanted to let you all know to be wary of venturing in either the "Hey Arnold" or "Hey Arnold!" tumblr tags right now. Looks like the gross spam is back up. It sounds like it's appearing for a lot of other fandom tags too and I did see one post that may have a solution to try:

In the meantime, just stay safe! Some of the images are pretty disturbing and potentially triggering.

I checked both of those tags and I'm not seeing anything gross, do you think it's possible they cleaned up the spam already? I don't use TS or anything like that.

It's possible! I know tumblr seems to be aware of the tag spam. It was REALLY bad the other week, but been getting better. There was a lot earlier though. Basically, just be aware of it possibly creeping in - especially if you have any kind of body horror phobias.

Yeah tumblr staff seems to be really on top of tag spam?? Surprisingly???  Which is good because I don't like body horror or gore ;w;  

On a related note (TW ANIMAL DEATH/ABUSE) --

Does anybody remember when certain tags were being spammed with pictures of dead/mutilated cats?? Oh my GOLLY that was awful

Yeah I related hate these clickbait/gore spam blogs, and you know who's doing this?

IT'S 4CHAN!! I'M NOT EVEN KIDDING!! Someone actually saw them say this and warned people about it. I reblogged it and told zeether about it after she was questioning about this crap. http://ironicdavestrider.tumblr.com/post/136149429516/source This is the post that was warning people about it, it was like limited to a few tags but now the spam/clickbait/gore blogs are spreading. I really hope tumblr gets rid of these (I actually blocked and flagged a couple spam blogs but tumblr hasn't taken them down).

4chan is the actual worst, they love spamming frequented tags that you would never expect gore to be posted in so it's even more of a shock/scare >.< But I checked Hey Arnold and Hey Arnold! last night for icky stuff and I didn't find anything

I blocked them, so I didn't see em, so I'm guessing tumblr is getting rid of them more frequently.

Oh and yesterday (during the daytime obviously) I found a couple and I actually found this one guy (who wasn't a spam blog) that was addicted to violence, massacres, etc call one of the Columbine Killers the "brainchild" of Sid and Stinky and I was just shocked and upset, so I blocked them as well. I would probably classify the person in the same group as the 4chan spammers. I wish this person could go to jail, this is just sick.

I think I was pretty unlucky like Eugene to see that awful stuff.

Huh, thanks for that. The only ones I've been seeing have been on Bob's Burgers tags for some reason..

I think the best thing is to block them all and flag them until hopefully tumblr deletes them. I believe they stopped spamming for now..

I've seen it yesterday, but I blocked them, however I went onto the tags today, only one showed up. Perhaps its because I don't have filters on.

Tag spamming is the worst. It's especially bad in 2 or 3 of my fandoms, particularly the tags of "problematic by tumblr-social-justice" ships. One said ship tag got a lot of crap a few weeks ago and cleaning the tag of not only spam but anti-ship rant posts was a serious chore.

Like, do those people seriously have nothing better to do with their time?

Anti-stuff is super annoying. Purposefully tagging your anti junk so that fans can find it is terrible internet etiquette!

That said, I'll take anti stuff over the gross out spam. Nothing sucks more than wanting to find cute stuff on your favorite show and being spammed with super disturbing body horror images. Neutral
