Create an image depicting the consequences of automating upvotes in violation of Reddit's rules.

While technically feasible, automating upvotes on Reddit using Django or any other tool is against Reddit's API terms of service. The rules clearly state that asking for votes or engaging in vote manipulation is prohibited. This includes any form of automated voting.

Here's the relevant excerpt from Reddit's API terms:

"You agree not to interrupt the serving of reddit, introduce malicious code onto reddit, make it difficult for anyone else to use reddit due to your actions, attempt to manipulate votes or reddit’s systems, or assist anyone in misusing reddit in any way. It takes a lot of work to maintain reddit. Be cool."

Violating these terms can result in your account being banned. It's important to respect the rules and guidelines set by the platform. Instead of trying to manipulate votes, focus on creating and sharing quality content that provides value to the Reddit community. This is the best way to naturally gain upvotes and engagement.
