That's a huge percentage.  For the numbers to be that high there probably was very little policing before.  I guess the inflated numbers meant more to them than quality control.

They wiped my legit signup in the process.

Their situation must be grim where they're aggressively weeding out the supposed minor % cost of automated accounts taking up resources.
