Spam posts are causing a major problem on the 'I Need To Know' board. 13 of the first 25 posts on the board right now are spamming links to football viewing sites, I don't know if these are legal sites or not.

Can something be done to remove these posts quicker? There's posts on the board 2 days or more old that still haven't been deleted. That means they are getting free advertising for all that time. These spammers are going to continue, if they know can get away with it. Surely these posts can be removed quicker.

These spam posts and their multiple accounts have gotten ridiculous. Over 50 separate accounts created in the last 2 weeks all spamming Football, rugby, golf, wrestling, TV series and Movie soundtrack sites. As soon as one is disabled three more pop up.

Is there no way to better authenticate new user accounts?

This is a list of a bunch of newly created accounts I've seen since mid September spamming sports, TV and music live-streaming  sites and these just came from two IMDb boards, I Need to Know and TV General. No telling how many more are out there on other boards. :

Sorry about the messed up links. I was going to edit the markup code out the list, but it's not letting me edit the post

People are hating authentication and the new captcha login process as it is. But, yeah...it's getting worse and worse.

Are we allowed to bump these threads?

The Spammers are still in operation, killing the boards (I've noticed the boards have less posts when these spammers are posting). This poster justfool : http://www.imdb.com/user/ur55402704/ is still free to spam after his previous four-day-old spam is still littering another board.

What is being done?

SPAMMERS posting on the I NEED TO KNOW board right now...

These spammers are getting so arrogant, they are even replying to posters reporting them, with even more spam. Where are the admins? Are there any admins monitoring this board, I thought that's what this board is for?

The 'I Need To Know' board under attack again!

A spammer with multiple ID's completely dominating the board, making it virtually unusable. The worse attack yet. There's got to be some pro-active defence from IMDb, this is letting down IMDb legitimate users/contributors.

This user:  dtruthwillset01 http://www.imdb.com/user/ur55971280/

With numerically ascending ID's all the way up to (60+ accounts) :

Yeah, this is getting ridiculous. If this keeps up, the entire first few pages(probably even more...and I'm NOT exaggerating) will be filled with these threads.

Yeah, there,s definitely a big problem with this batch. The spammer has figured out something that's allowing the accounts to created much more often.
I have my board display set to 100 threads per page and fully 90% of the first page were spam threads.

It's annoying as hell..I've stopped visiting that board as often as I used to because of it.
