Why is it that IMDb allows harassment and bullying thru the lists function? This has been reported several times with no reply from IMDb? This Director is being mentally affected by this harassment. I'm posting here as IMDb doesn't respond to any reports. I have been in direct contact with this Director & he has requested the lists be removed or a block made so they can't be added to his Personal page and movies.

Your post is cyber-bullying!
Please contact IMDb directly. https://help.imdb.com/contact
You really should not bully like this in a public forum.
Bad behavior by another does not give you free license do do the same.

Ed, how in the world is he bullying?? He never disparaged anyone. He asked a question in a professional, respectful way.

Sorry, but asking a question in a professional, respectful way is the same as asking a question in a unprofessional, disrespectful way. The end result is the same. Cyberbullying.
He said hes was harassing and bullying. We DO NOT know this to be true or fact. Mentioning things like these whether true or false in any fashion is cyberbullying in reverse.

When I click on the 2 links that look possibly offensive, they show as non-public lists.
Awesome D -MINUS DIRECTORS
my favourite d-minus directors of all time

Or are they among the lists that ARE public, but give the false result of being private, as reported in other threads recently?

I would NOT support the petition to ban all user lists on IMDb. My own lists are extremely useful to me, and I've found some other lists useful/interesting as well.

I saw the same private block as you when this was 6 minutes old.
So I do not know where he is coming from.
If someone gives a film a bad review, is this cyberbullying? No!
Lists are another way of reviewing en masse.
