[SPAM PMs] Crunchyroll is become overpopulated
Posted 4/29/11
The follow recently fell into my PM box, several times

Crunchyroll is recently becoming very overpopulated. There have been many members complaining that Crunchyroll is becoming very slow. Records show that the reason is that there are many active Crunchyroll members and, on the other side, many new Crunchyroll members.

We will be sending this message around to see if members are active or not. If you are active please send to at least 15 other users using Copy+ Paste to show that you are still active. *Those who do not send this message within 2 weeks will be deleted without hesitation to create more space.*

Send this message to all your friends and to show me that your still active and you will not be deleted.

Shinji



I wanted to take a moment and educate the clueless users out there spreading this crap around.


#1 - Shinji doesn't need ANYONE to forward anything around for him. He can automatically send a message to all users. Seen that 30-day free-trial floating around your in-boxes? He doesn't ask you to forward THAT to other users does he? No. Because he can automatically PM everyone systemwide, not just "15 other users".

#2 - This PM has been around for several years aparently. You'd think after several years it would hopefully die down but I guess there's enough suckers still joining to believe it.

So please, stop worrying that the sky is falling. It's not. Your account isn't going to be deleted. If it was, the Site Admins would PM you DIRECTLY about it.

....and you create a thread about it. You know you're part of them too with you spamming about the Message. Simple. When you read the message click on the spam button.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Seriously a thread about this? what's next? A thread about Playing with dust bunnies?

That doesn't help educate them to what they're doing at all.

Delete the inactive members. (Haven't logged in for 3 years+) and anyone that hasn't made any posts.If that doesn't stop this chain letter, delete the user that originally forwarded it. (I'm sure the administrator or moderators are capable of that.)

Very simple: You just use some force. I also have to say this thread isn't necessary, considering anyone with two braincells that can be rubbed together would just delete the chain letter if forwarded and contact the site staff about it.

here is what you do and yes i will sound like an ass for this "click on ibox, then click settings, then click go on vacation and tada no one can send you a pm unless its a mod". It is that simple, now if you want to block certain people then just type in the user's name in the block list and hit enter and they will be unable to send you anymore spam. or pm's period It's not that hard to do, okay me being an ass is over.
