The message boards are needed much more now that many theaters have closed to share reactions about different movies and trivia about the stars that make them since most people are only getting streaming video for most of April. Twitter is badly organized to discuss trivia and film facts.

I wouldn't mind message boards being brought back as a forum discussion. But I really doubt it will. It was so much trouble for administrators to deal with in addition to general info.

For a while ... IMDb required a Bank card number to register
They would charge 1$ (?) then refund that
so they had a ref number for all accounts
Trolls with several User accounts and  the same bank card number ....
  
Does IMDb still require a bank card number to register ? ?

and oh by the way..
There are more than 117,340,000 registered users now
Some are gone, some are the same person with several accounts etc...

Does the IMDb still require a bank account number? Not that I know of.
But if you knew someone had multiple sock puppets and bot accounts, why didn’t some do something about it other than you who did do something about it, IMHO.
Btw: what is up that address in your post? Who is friendsstarbd? Should I care about that account?

Bit late for that, don't you think? States have started to reopen already, so it's back to work in no time.
However, they'll hit us for a new round in fall, so make sure to resub this as soon as they "prison planet" us all over again, and we have to make like merino wool-producing sheeple, lest you get arrested for "standing and breathing" during a pLandemic.
