*What’s with the lipstick bots? They are popping up and upvoting in pretty much in every comment section on the main site.
The lipstick bots are easily identified with a random female name with a red set of lips to the right of the names. There is no more than one upvoting in most comments on every story so far. I have actually watch the lipstick bots upvote comments within seconds of a comment getting posted.
As of the time of this posting, I have counted at least 20 different lipstick bots.*
Knock on wood, I haven’t seen them liking posts today yet; some recent comments do have “1 guest vote”*, which I suppose means those accounts are getting disabled as a consequence of them being reported, but other posts don’t have any suspicious likes at all.
*I know that can also mean someone I blocked liked that post and any likes over 50 become guest votes as well, but I see those likes as “1 guest vote” even when when opening the given story in private mode, thus logged out of Disqus.
Possibly depending on the phone, if you can zoom in enough that you can touch just the number and not the voting chevron, it’ll display a drop-down list of who has voted (up or down) without adding/removing your own vote. If you also touch the voting chevron but didn’t mean to, you can touch it again to remove/replace your vote if you wish.
