Just had scantily clad women start liking my Strava activities. Wonder how long until this stuff needs to start being cleaned up..

    I ended up putting my account to request to follow etc, which seem to stop random likes, though wasn’t nr naked woman has to be said!

    I've never understood what's in it for the random (and obviously automated) likes.

    I'll stick up my commute and some chap from California will randomly give me kudos.

    Is it just to raise the visibility of their profile and hope to harvest more followers themselves?

    Ive had the same, makes me laugh. Always believed it was part of a data harvest scam. You follow their profile and they or someone else they are linked to gets your data etc etc.

    my girlfriend threw a wobbly because random naked lady gave me kudos..

    She thinks I know her..

    I wish.

    lol, just had one of these myself.

    Someone needs to tell Mallory that those black lacy knickers will never work under bib tights.

    I ignore all kudos, even from friends as I don't see the point in them.
    I may have been missing out!
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    Had several of these on recent rides now even though my profile is request to follow.

  • I had one of these yesterday, she had apparently done a single run, she was fit. ;)

    I'm so slow that even spammers don't give me kudos. :lol:

    I've started getting these too.

    The profiles all seem to show that the ladies have done one single recent activity. Must be a scam of some sort but I can't really work out what it is.

    Some nice pictures though, a few definitely worth of the Big Girls thread!

    Same, Wednesday night. Think it was my mindblowing ascent of Broomfield that attracted her.
  • I had two from "very fit" ladies, each with the one activity of running at 20mph+ for 30 minutes. I can't seem to find them anymore, I think their accounts were deleted- not sure if done by Strava or themselves. I did find that some cyclists were suckered in and liked them back, maybe it's some bike-hunt scam?

    I've had 2 in the last few days, reported both and accounts have disappeared although I can't delete the kudos.

    One of them was inviting me to do things to her, but at 40 mins to do a 5k run it didn't sound like she could keep up.

    Had two today, clearly so impressed by my squelchy ride to Hospital and back, that I got Two Kudos from the naked bots plus a offer of sex!

    I and I’m sure others blocked the account, since at least one has gone plus the Kudos. So Strava is removing them one assumes.

    I get them, but all mine are from real ladies who just dig me.

    Right.

    Right?

    I'm feeling left out, not one scantily clad woman being in awe of my lack of KOMs :(

    I keep getting Zwift thumbs up, mostly when i turn around at the bottom of hill for repeats. It feels a bit bad because what they do not realise is that i run my turbo in ERG mode and just rack up vertical meters while doing my preset workout..

    speaking of likes, is it possible to hide rides from a specific person but still have them on your followers list? A guy from a club that I have ridden with is obsessed with giving kudos and it's annoying. I don't want to offend him by blocking him though.

    I have the opposite problem. I have a mate who gets a sulk when I don't give him kudos. It's not intentional, i just don't go on strava that often.
