Y'all on masto need some functionality to deal with all these bots sending spam and then deleting their profile so they can't be reported
@emacsen this is ... long. I gather this is your list of all the ways AP could be extended / improved to help with the problem?

In my case, they don't make it onto my server at all apart from this log spam. It's the "send and then delete profile" that's the fun part and that's what keeps the messages from landing on my server which is nice.

@sungo Log spam is annoying but overall mangable.

You did remind me that checking for the object (both Actor Object and Activity's target Object) are part of the spec and it's recommended as a base level validation.

Implementations which fail to do this are being silly.
