    Why does everyone ignore this spam when it is posted a couple of times a
    week in this group?

    He is not posting the actual reviews here or contributing anything of
    value and attaching his "sig" to it. That's the generally accepted way
    of advertising in groups that don't specifically permit it. His posts
    have no purpose other than to generate traffic for his site and income
    for him.

    It's time he was asked to stop and if that doesn't work then complaints
    to Supernews should follow.

    Because we've tried asking him politely to stop, and he won't, and
    the only other recourse is to ignore him.

    The link spammers are incorrigible.

    They're spammers. Spammers are thieves. They're spamming, they know
    they're spamming, and they're not going to stop spamming.

    Asking any of the link spammers to stop just brings out the peanut gallery
    who haven't a clue what spam is.

    Because a lot of us read those reviews and consider them a valuable
    contribution to the group--a much more valuable contribution than
    *you've* ever made, BTW. So why don't *you* sit down and have a big
    ole' cup of SHUT THE **** UP.

    I don't, and still don't appreciate the spam allowed on this group
    because of the apologists.

    <shrug> In the big scheme of things, when considering the status of my
    life, this registers at exactly zero on the Richter scale. If it registers
    any higher than that for you, well, that's your problem. ;)

    Unless he's actually posting the reviews here then he's just spamming
    us with his site links in the hopes that he can make money for
    himself.

    I assure you that his DVD review site isn't better than any of the
    literally hundreds of others that inhabit the internet. And I doubt
    you have even visited that website once so I suggest you take your own
    advice, Sizzlechest. Here's a nice big cuppa.

    Because there's only a couple individuals doing it, and at least it's on
    topic. It would be pretty easy to filter out.

    His posts are on-topic to the group and useful. His reviews serve as a
    reminder (at least to me) of releases I might have missed and give me
    a chance to read reviews of them, to boot. And I find these review
    posts a helluva lot more useful to this group than the countless other
    shitty posts that make up the bulk of this group, including:

    "How do I copy a DVD?"
    "When is [insert movie title here] coming out?"
    "John Kerry rules!"
    "George Bush rules!"

    > I assure you that his DVD review site isn't better than any of the
    > literally hundreds of others that inhabit the internet.


    And they're welcome to post links to their reviews too. In fact, I
    would encourage the better ones to do so. It would be a helluva lot
    easier than having to check out each site individually for new
    reviews.

    > And I doubt you have even visited that website


    I have. And while his reviews are, admittedly, not as good as many
    sites I've seen, at least I SEE THEM. If a tree wants to be heard, it
    damn sure better fall within earshot of someone.

    Now put that in your book!
