Blocking Bot (Apparently)

Yesterday, I got blocked for no reason (and I'm the Admin >.>) by a guy by the name of VTFS or something like that. Today I got blocked again, this time for "spam", which I'm sure I haven't done. If you guys get blocked by that guy, I can assure you that none of the admins did it. I think it is a Blocking Bot that's blocking people. Each time I got blocked I sent a report to the Wikia Support and seconds later, my Admin status was restored.

If you got blocked by the VTFS or VTSF guy, send a report to the Wikia support and hopefully it'll disappear. Just a heads up, in case I got blocked again or someone gets blocked and they don't know what to do.

Also I checked his page apparently it's blocked so I can't say this will happen again....But just in case!

One of the VSTF bots went haywire or something and started blocking and unblocking people for "spam" or some other reason. That's what I know

Please let me know if this happens again. The other admins except me do not have the ability to block a fellow admin, so we can rule them out. Must just be a system glitch.

Can you please tell me which VTFS blocked you? These are Volunteer admins, not bots, and they are from Wikia, and thankfully I can block them. If you tell me exactly which VTFS, I will ban them. Clearly a VTFS gone bad.

What I can guess at the moment is that a VSTF got hacked and the hacker went onto a banning spree.

Might be silly, but yeah

Wait..nope, nevermind.

Sadly this particular VSTF Bot is simply called "VSTF BOT" and since it is a wiki feature, it is impossible to ban. 

However, other VTFS can be banned.

I think the name was Jr Mime, but for all I know he could be hacked. Enzo and I were having a chat about we kept getting blocked, unblocked, blocked, unblocked, it's really driving me nuts.
