Basically, a select few members who strike me as being the exact same person or robots have been offering links to download things that are well in print and easily obtainable on DVD. Since the vast majority of forums DO NOT LIKE people trying to break the law, we have decided to crack down on these people. They also choose to ignore me, which strikes me as being either rude, or inhuman.

I am giving the members with these sigs that for the most part read "Download ______ episodes here" a week from this post to ditch these sigs, or they will face bannination. This is being done both because of copywrights, and because I really want to see if they respond to this proving that they are human.

These bans will be "without prejudice", so if someone is banned for this and it turns out they were on vacation and were unable to change their sigs, they can simply contact an admin, and provided they do a sig removal within another week, they will be forgiven. If they don't, well, bans permanant.

Bear in mind I'm primarily interested in in-print works. Posting something NOT ON DVD, CD OR TV ANYWHERE won't be cracked down on* or stuff you make/made obviously doesn't count.

* - Movies in the theater still not on DVD? These count too. NO LINKS TO DARK KNIGHT PLZ.

I noticed those members - if they're bots, they must be pretty smart ones...but if they're human, then
I'd say bring down the banhammer! lol

Hmm...I've noticed members like that who have sigs that say 'download {something} episode' or things like that, and was rather confused as to why they would do that...

Those people or bots can get WOOHP Forum in heaps of trouble.

While were on the subject would our old Downloads section on the site have had counted in this?

None of these people have replied yet, so it looks like there will be some house cleaning next week.

Yeah, this is a little confusing. Ares these people actually paid to visit forums with these sigs or something? I don't get it. A lot of them don't seem to care about TS either, so I don't see much point in having them stick around if they don't remove their sigs.

The way I see it, since Season 2 is on DVD and still on Amazon, Season 2 would be off-limits.

The rest would be...kinda grey areas because they are still on TV right? Course, I wouldn't consider OOP songs still on the radio to fit, so I dunno.

1. If the site I checked out isn't lying to me, the site they link to is like a P2P/Rapidshare/Torrent site that costs money. There must be some kinda...scheme going on. I suppose that's why they only discuss popular shows.

Personally, I don't even know why people would even bother with those sites. Not only do they cost money, they aren't any more legal than something you'd download off of a torrent.

2. Some of them actually made an effort. Those may actually be people.

Either way, if they are legit people, and get banned, I'm giving them all a second chance already. Otherwise....B7.

I went ahead and banned all these people early, becuase it became obvious to me they are some kind spambots. Several of the posts made were stringed together from actual quotes from other people already in the thread. All of them had the same or incredibly similar IPs, as well. I also went ahead and removed all the links in their sigs.

IP doesn't match other spammers, other posts not copied, sig does not contain bot like links:

Verdict: Not bot.

Pinning this now, cause some people STILL don't quite get it.

Should have done this a while ago really.
