I was blocked for 3 days because i used unfollow/follow. ok i understood that. Within these 3 days lot of people followed me. I see it as normal that i follow them back. So i tried to catch up all the Followers that came in in these 3 days... Now im blocked for 6 days.. What I understand now is.. im not supposed to follow them back? NO UNFOLLOW before.... Am i totally wrong with this? That is not Spam, because those came to me first!!! please remove that block for the future!!! Or please tell me how i should handle this problem?

The problem is if you automatically follow everyone following you, you are going to be adding spam bots to your followers. Here's one you're following: https://soundcloud.com/susanansanders5

You should be blocking and reporting accounts like these. It makes them look a little less like bots if people are following them.

LOL. It is frustrating. I am on day 29 of my 30 day block. The only thing to get is the fact that no software is free from a glitch or two.

There are some bots yes, (which account hasnt? only some) but with cleaning up the whole mess started.... i did some unfollow/follow bad stuff things mostly by accident (Ups that wasnt a bot) and got blocked.
One bot has tracks on em not ony promo, those have actually tracks with music on them.... so if u only listen to the normal track... anyway i dont want to check every detail of fellowers and i didnt know i have to... sometimes you are just tired and nor fully aware and such.
The real problem is still that a fellow back (no unfollowing before) is regarded as Spam, and i really wonder why? Is it a software problem or whatever? Just policy? A glitch? Is it ever gonna be changed?

Yes, it's a new technique I've noticed. They upload a track called "Hell Beat" and a few days later upload the spam advert:

Please see our feature use policies here to make sure you don't end up in another block.

Thanks
Thanks but i followed all those rules and that is my problem. I didnt follow that many people. I followed them back! At least add the follow back to those rules!
And of course I interacte in my 3 days block with those users i followed back then.... I should have done it for the software again? Does the software not recognise there were interactions in the past?
And all it would need to make the real user, even if im a power user (im real) a message ok evough for now. u can follow more in 6 hours...
