I'm a bit of a housekeeper and when I see inaccurate information I like to report it, not sure if it's because I'm old, a queen or have ocd. I came across a movie that is riddled with duplicate reviews, almost every review in fact was duplicated. One user however didn't duplicate but reviewed the movie half a dozen times.

I reported these but they were all declined.

My questions therefore are

Why are duplicates declined? Why have a duplicate report category is they're not going to be removed?

Secondly in relation to the account with half a dozen reviews is that allowed? I'd certainly hope/assume not. So what category would you report these under?

Hi, Jeffrey Strickland. What are the 18-digit reference numbers of the pertinent report submissions?

Couldn't tell you, I reported them a while ago and got them declined. I can happily try again and provide them but last time it was over a dozen back to back receipt emails (Long since deleted) that I got back all declined despite being duplicates.

Then there is the matter of my second question.
