    Yes, people here have gotten soft blocked but they're back. They have bigger fish to fry for the time being. Plus, some people don't really have a need for software anymore from what I can tell.

    I've seen 1 and 2 weeks. Could be the severity of the crime.

    Are they still sending out these emails? I have not heard of anyone getting them in a while

    Yes they are. They're more likely to send it if you also MISS a block. This triggers some sort of investigation.

    Most people around here are now accepting manually now that they stopped prioritizing new kids.

    Nope, as with usual with Amazon there is no rhyme or reason to the length of the suspension. Some drivers consistently get 1 week (like myself) while others get up to 3 weeks. A few drivers have even been warned while they were currently on a suspended account and not even searching for blocks.

    Yes, weekly...

    So 3 weeks the longest time it Amazon can block you besides deactivated?

    3 weeks has been the longest reported. Most seem to be one week even when warned multiple times.

    Are the ones using some type of app getting deactivated or the ones using auto tappers?

    How do they catch this people, and how can they avoid being caught issuing such a thing?

    Every automated method can be detected including mechanical tappers.

    I don't think I ever heard anyone being deactivated for having a mechanical tappers. I know someone that made one up on his own kind of a funky device .

    They have been soft blocked just as those using the script. No one has been deactivated yet for the script or mechanical tapper. Amazon simply mistakes the mechanical tappers for the script now with their detection routine.
