You may have recently received a message that says shinji is conducting a survey and it tells you to forward the message to all your buddies and shinji.

Here is the message in question:


This is a PRANK!!!!

How do I know? First of all, no one will have received an original message coming from shinji's address because shinji did not write this. Because it makes absolutely no sense. There was no closing date for this "survey" so this message will continue to be forwarded by new users indefinitely. Because of that, shinji would have to sift through hundreds of thousands of forwarded message that were "allegedly" sent by him forever!!!!!

This would not benefit shinji, or anyone else, in any way.

Also, consider that the more buddies you have, the more you will pointlessly receive this message!

I am posting this thread in the general forum in order to help stop this prank before it becomes a major problem.

hi everyone. there's a message going around claiming to be from me, but its not me! its just getting you to spam everyone =\ i don't have any contests or surveys going on, so plz don't send this message to me or your friends. thanks!!!

the FAKE MSG NOT FROM ME looks like:

Hello there, it's shinji here! I hoped you enjoyed watching movies
on crunchyroll as much as I had creating them! :)

We are conducting a survey on all members to see how friends
are interconnected. With better knowledge of viewship, we are
able to organize and customize video files to better suit your
needs. Please forward this message to your every friend,
including me!

As a reward, for every 1000 message that contains this message,

counted. Spammers are not welcomes and will be banned without notice.

Just report the people who are sending you chain letters. Yeah i know, its a drag that it started again. Some idiot, probably saw that locked thread and decided to resend it to everyone. =__=;;


They're my buddies, though, and they don't know it's spam. This is the best method I could think of to fix the problem and help keep crunchyroll's inboxes free from spam.

if you were reading what people wrote at all you would know that the old thread announcement by shinji got LOCKED. which means it won't be appearing up front and center anymore since no one can post on it. Shinji will surely make an announcement "again" when he sees his mailbox flooded with messages again but until then, this message is completely valid.
