I can't believe that we cannot get someone interested in canning these b******s. I went ahead and clicked on one of the movie links - it does take you to a page to download a movie - current movies that are either in theaters now or haven't even been released yet.
I know there are hefty fines for that kind of stuff.
I've reported some of them, someone that monitors this stuff should see what's going on. rebumping
I've reported some of these guys too; it's hard to keep up with them as new ones appear every day, like unwanted mold spots. I need to start a data base to keep track of the reports I've made.
I've reported via the "contact us" which was the only way I got response and results in the past. Then Scrips advised me to use the specific post function, which I've been using but that doesn't even elicit an acknowledgement. Maybe it goes into a cyber file 13?
I've also filed reports with some Feds and association specific anti-piracy groups.
The ONLY good thing is that these spammers are spamming so prolifically that if any federal charges are instituted, there's plenty of evidence for their illicit activities.
I've reported the drug spam to both the "contact us" as well as the post function, I specifically made mention of their ( diy networks) possible liability for allowing these posts. As you can see the posts are still there, but if you mention in a reply about using a bas##rd file, see how long it stays there or if the reply even gets used
I wonder if the people monitoring the "contact us" and "report this post" functions even understand Scripps' liability for allowing the drug posts to continue. Scripps can't claim ignorance; it's been notified by more than one poster. So it has knowledge that this is occurring yet has done nothing to stop it.
This is why I'm going to try to find their in-house or retained counsel; their ears perk up quickly if they smell liability for their client.
There's another possibility and that's that Scripps no longer cares about this forum and is just ignoring the massive spam until they decide to shut down the forum.
Tomorrow I explore this option:
To report illegal prescription drug sales and/or rogue pharmacies operating on the Internet call the anonymous Pharmaceutical Drug Abuse Hotline: 1-877-RxAbuse (1-877-792-2873)
