Would it be mean to say these people need to die?

I can offer up some ways of ending their meaningless existences that consist of disrupting the extremely important discussions here if anyone is interested.

I'm curious why there would not be some kind of safeguard that immediately prevents the same poster from posting multiple posts, in short periods, as has been happening. Even the most loquacious, and I count myself in this category do not usually post one hundred posts in a one minute period.

I would call that a sign of impending stupidity and think that an internal system could prevent that happening, by not allowing scads of posts that proliferate like wild fires, to occur. Any computer geniuses out there who have the answer?

It seems as if they only target the General Discussions. I have reported a few of them and they get correctly quickly. I am not a computer wizard. Not sure how to fix it. Once logged in you can stay logged in. I use Google Chrome which states this forum site is not secure. I would be okay with having to do extra clicks to submit a post, like something visual, until TCM can get it fixed. Years ago, I would get a "how many cats" image and had to enter the amount. I am against the distorted image safeguard. I agree, it is very annoying!

No, they also target trivia and whatever threads they feel like targeting. We've been putting up with this spam for years. It's summer, schools out, we'll probably be seeing more of it. The spam seems to become more frequent during the summer months. Most here, that have been here a long time have reported the spam at one time or another. We all just put up with it because we have no choice. Each time the site is updated it doesn't stop the spammer. If those who run this site can't stop the spam, my advice is just ignore it as we all do and just report it and wait till it's cleaned up that day.

I know, I've noticed their preponderance to hit the General Discussions area too, Jimmy.

TCM should rename the area, "The Olsen Twins Forum" and possibly then no hackers would want to ever enter.

Please don't pull your hair out!

In seeing some very old threads, people working for TCM, use to reply. Now I wonder if anyone is home. The Mods have no trouble making changes without a peep.

Another frustration!

if all that spam gibberish doan bother TCM I ain't gonna let it bother me.

it's their problem and not ours...

maybe they think it's decorative.

:lol:

We don't know if it is our problem. Guess that is why nobody uses their real identity. This site is not safe!

EDIT: I used the report post link and it was quick to go away. Not exactly sure how. So, report it and see if that works. Maybe TCM Mods will get tired of repetitive complaints and look for a fix. 

MORE EDIT: There is a pattern for the moderators to silently, in the dark of night, move stuff like this thread around. I have not been able to communicate with TCM in any fashion, since the price increase on the printed Now Playing Guide, which was probably a year before it came to an end.

TRIPLE EDIT: I opened one of the spams and used Google Chrome to translate to English. Reported to TCM it is coming from a casino or a casino group.

I wish Kim would stop airing his grievances here over being jilted by Donald for Vlad. Get over it, Kim. Move on.:P

 I don't think Kim is capable of writing so much or in the use of bots to post threads.

I gotta go with Vlad the Impaler over Kim myself.


Gary Oldman is so much cuter and has a much better hair stylist.

Yes,  but it isn't really political since it is about spam.   Maybe it belongs in Information.   (wink).    

Doubt if Kim can bring down the United States by targeting TCM. ;)

Message--I care. Second message--I am giving up my nukes right...............now.

One point to Kim for not going shirtless and showing his developing man boobs.

My father thanks you, my mother thanks you, my dog thanks you and I thank you.

Which one of the Cohans are you, hopefully not Michael?

Oops, he spells it as Cohen, right?

Never mind.

I'm from the reserved, self-effacing branch of the clan. We always thought

George M.'s tiresome patriotism and simple ideas were rather a family

embarrassment.
