We look for signs that a profile is a fake profile or a “Spam bot’. We do this by looking at when the profile was created, odd typos, number and location of friends, and other publicly-listed profile information.
A profile-acting-as-a-business will be blocked. A profile that uses an obviously fake name will be blocked.
We err on the side of caution in order to protect the group from potential spammers.
If you request to join and have been declined or are worried you will be, contact an admin.
