  • What is with all the movie spam?

    I am relatively new around here, so I am asking this seriously... what is with all the movie spam??? Honestly! Do these people think anyone clicks through to these sites? Are they being paid to do it? Is it phishing or a virus spreading thing?? What gives???

    I've seen it scattered about, and I report it when I find it. It usually doesn't take long for a moderator to take it down.

      It's three threads per day, every morning, usually in the Paris or Hong Kong parts of the site.

        Nope, it is more than that. I personally reported 3 posters this morning from 2 different forums (not Paris or HongKong), each posting 2-3 posts.

          Its actually sometimes as many as 8-10 but most of the time thats what I do in the early AM while I'm eating my breakfast.... is do spam patrol before I go to work. However I'm on vacation right now and there have been days I haven't even logged in so....

          We are aware of the issue and they are trying to figure out what to do. A LOT of stuff never even makes it to the boards because it gets caught in the spam filter and goes into a moderation que but for some reason.... a lot still gets out. On any given day we have anywhere from 30 to 90 spam accounts join. Not many of those actually post but they join. Some are probably bots some....

          So we ask that when you do see spam, report it and as soon as one of us in online we'll take care of it. Just don't respond and don't click on anything.
