Example of a Reviews page being used as a message board. (Also, a sorting problem.)

Please read all of the "reviews" here:

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9028770/reviews?sort=submissionDate&dir=desc

Start at the bottom (the earliest comment) and read upwards.

   [Note:  Sorting "earliest-first" ("ascending" order) won't entirely work here.
    The ascending sort works only by date, ignoring the time.  Please fix that.]

You'll notice that most of those comments constitute a topic discussion – not reviews.

This usage is similar to a message board – but this is not appropriate for a reviews page.

(Users naturally want to discuss things – but since the boards were shut down, there is no place for discussions on-site.)

I don't know. It just comes naturally, in a second nature kind of way.

There is a place to talk. IMDb's Twitter and Facebook Page

You're quite right, and thanks for noting that.

What I wrote was:  "... there is no place for discussions on-site" (on IMDb.com itself), after the boards were shut down.

Of course, there are some people who want to continue such discussions on-site – therefore sometimes some people will misuse Reviews pages for that purpose, unfortunately.

Admittedly, instead of posting here, I should've simply "reported" each inappropriate review that I found  (as you suggested in your other reply).  Thanks for reporting them.
