If the "organic" traffic is some unknown % of traffic originating from discord, and the rest likely bots hitting the Polygon site directly, why not just disable organic traffic entirely? By limiting traffic to originating sites such as Twitter, you are getting the benefit of whatever bot/spam protection they hav e in place - although I guess it wouldn't be that hard for a bot to grab the Spindl tracking URL from a Twitter post. Still, its one more gate to go through and considering that it looks like bots were responsible for ~6X more unique minters than the next best performing channel (Twitter), it might make sense just to drive all traffic through known trusted channels. Yes, I know this defeats the purpose of a "trustless" network such as web 3.
