Recurring problem with byline snatcher !

Hi
I had hoped that this particular problem had been solved after IMDB contacted this individual last year and advised him/her not to make trivial edits to my bio submissions in order to steal my byline. Sadly, this individual is once again up to his/her old tricks, changing commas and hyphens to tag my work and insert his/her byline. For the second week running I find yet another bio hijacked (160504-022145-878000). Any chance of having another (hopefully firmer) word with this person. This is pure chicanery being perpetrated not just against me but to many other diligent IMDB bio contributors.

Thank you, Michelle,

this byline thievery has been going on for the better part of six years and it would be nice to see an end to it.
