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

Lemmy should require a minimum of time (or “karma”) before allowing to post or comment in any instance
IMO Karma is a feature that just encouraged karma farming and selling accounts. As of now on Lemmy, there is no such incentive so if someone is going to troll it’s of their own accord. Every social media has this whether karma is there or not. All Karma does is alienate new users who would like to participate in the community they want, but they would just leave because they have to win enough internet points to talk about what they want.
I wouldn’t mind having to fill some security steps to make an account, but there’s no true way to stop people from being trolls.
I do see Karma helping to prevent someone from trolling straight away after getting banned, but ultimately they’re still going to troll if they’re that dedicated to it.
Hands up for the gays🙌
Another common tactic subreddits use is to shadow ban users with negative karma. That could be an option as well.
Imagine advocating for shadowbans
Why does this upset you? Use your words, change my mind.
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.
All of these communities have mods that can do the exact same thing. I’m not sure why you think it’s any different here. Kinda hypocritical since you literally just called for people to use the report button, which is * taps sign * constant moderation.
Reporting doesn’t mean I’m advocating for shadow bans. It measn I’m reporting spam
What makes you say that?
How do you get karma without posting?
