    Default We've been overrun

    Geez, every time I logon lately, and click on New Posts, 1/3 of the new posts are about movies, all by the same person, or bot, I assume. If I want movie info, I'll go to an entertainment site. I hate this. Is it just me?

    I hate it too, wonder what can be done and kind of hope that someone is working out how to stop such abuse of the site.

    I wouldn't say I hate it, I just find it mildly disagreeable. I reserve hate for much more serious things.

    Agreed, hate is kinda strong. Bigtime annoyed is more like it.

    I report them as a 'possible spammer' to the mods, then I go to their profile page & block them.

    I have been reporting every day that these messages show up. Itís seems they are being removed. But then a new spammer profile is set up.

    Sometimes the spammer(s) will randomly change user accounts to evade the "user id" based filters a web site might use. In that case the filtering has to be done at the IP address or domain level at a router ahead of the server hosting the web site. To this end I've asked if the spam is coming from the same IP address.

    They don't piss me off. It's not worth it. Hell, they don't even annoy me. i ignore them.
    But I'm glad they're being reported....

    I still wonder what they think they will accomplish by it?
