    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.

  4. 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.

    And a lot of us see them for what they truly are, horrible reviewers who
    just want your eyeballs and commision clicks.

    Then don't read the reviews. Simple.

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

    And let's not forget the jerks that refuse to crosspost their crappy

    <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. ;)

    I'd rather put a stop to it instead.

    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!"
    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.
    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!

    Then why don't you filter those posts out and let the ones who do like
    them deal with them?

    That word rings a bell... Until now, I only thought one specific poster
    (in a different newsgroup) used that word.

    So, what's it to you? You an internet cop? If you are, take a hike.
    Even if you aren't, take a hike ...
