Sadly, we have some idiot that keeps spamming the forums with links to illegally download (steal) movies.  I keep reporting them, but it seems like CBS doesn't mind it as they don't remove them.... and continue that person, using the same account, to continue posting them.

It disgusts me that the mods/admins were so quick to delete spam when Bam reported it yet the 50+ reports I've made concerning his spamming and blatant trolling in Ten Forward have gone ignored.


And then to have to read these posts where he pretends to be a model forum member.

*sigh* You can't silence someone because of their opinion. You can silence them if they are doing something illegal or violating the forum rules. Spamming, personal attacks, etc. like we see once in a while can be banned, but just because you disagree with someone? That's just facist.

I admit I disagree with Bam on virtually everything but all the reports I've made against him were for bumping threads no one was posting in. And I only reported those because it was painfully obvious that they were intended to antagonize other members and bait them into a strawman argument.


I understand you agree with him but wake up, man.

I finally got them to respond to an e-mail.... and basically their response was "what spam?"  I pointed them to pages of it, but I doubt anything will happen.

WOW.  That's all I can say is WOW.  You won't have that problem on TrekBBS.

Well, I pointed them to dozens of spam messages and they've responded that they're working on cleaning up the board.  I won't hold my breath.

Hopefully the emails I sent to Startrek.com support and cbsinteractive.com (which is essentially the same) will help things along. We'll see.

Yea.... I'm reporting and then after a couple of days (per their instruction) e-mailing them the links.  It's been a few weeks now and they're not removing any.

Well.... the admins finally removed most of the spam that we've been complaining about, but now there's a rash of new stuff.  I've already reported it, but...

Wow! I just reported a bunch of spam and the admins removed all of it in about an hour!  Must have hit the cycle just right.

It's starting to get bad again in the individual show sections. Arrrrgh! Don't people have better things to do?


The moderators seem to be deleting it at the same rate it is posted. I wish there was just a delete button.


But then, of course, you have to deal with people abusing their power.
