They are back!! It looks like it's the same one from before.

Posting links to pirated Indian movies of all things.

Thanks for the heads up

Groucho has now cleared most of this away and the offender will not be posting here any more under that particular user name.

Re: Spammers are back in Movie Talk!!

I removed all the soft deletes on the 1st page of Movie Talk. Do you guys see those? Because even though the threads were deleted, the stubs just noting the deletion were taking up a bunch of space for me.

Re: Spammers are back in Movie Talk!!

No, non-moderators can't see soft deleted thread remnants. Only moderators.

Also, I'm not certain, but I think moderators only have soft delete options, not hard deletes like administrators.

Yeah, I reported a couple of them and even posted in my own spam thread. That spammer sure is committed.

Re: Spammers are back in Movie Talk!!

Hopefully a Movie Talk mod or an admin your side of the pond will be able to clean this up soon

You really have to wonder what someone expects to achieve by such vandalism...

(Then again, at least spammers and trolls and their like while occupied with this kind of thing aren't out there hurting people like some of their fellow sociopaths in the Real World!)

Re: Spammers are back in Movie Talk!!

There's another guy named discfactory or something like that. I'm guessing he's about to start.

Re: Spammers are back in Movie Talk!!

New spammer is in Other and Tech. Reported twice already, but since I don't know which mods/admins are online, thought it was best to mention it here.
