In addition to this it would be much appreciated if the mods wouldn't only remove the spam but also close the accounts. E.g. lxxsumi8 still exists as well as lxxsumi0!

It is pretty obvious that those will never become a paying customer!


Accounts that spam are immediately closed.  The account will still exist, but be unable to post, permanently.

They are back this week, but don't reply use the red arrow bcause they can't be deleted if someone reply...

BTW concerning the new one today : Who is stupid enough to rip a BR on a portable device? Kind of pointless to have a BR to downgrade is quality...

Unfortunately, there is always someone stupid enough to do it.  Spammers wouldn't push it if they know nobody would bite.

Convenience. If Blu-ray is the only copy you have, and you do a lot of traveling, you'd want a copy for your portable player (be it an iTouch or laptop or iPod or whatever).

I rip DVDs to .avi all the time for this purpose. Sure, I'm not getting the same a/v quality, but at least I have something to watch on the plane or in the hotel room or whatever.

My DVD's end up in divx format at 2022 video bit rate but my Blu's end up in WMV uncompressed (currently).  Boxee on Apple can't play the voice tracks of that format though...

I should have been clear. I drop the DVDs to .avi strictly for convenience. I can put quite a few movies on one DVD, so I can carry less. I'm obviously not watching movies on my Zune looking for quality.

I still think it would be a good idea to require the first few 3-5 posts by new users to be "approved" first before they actually appear here in the forum. They do this on other forums and Spam is virtually non-existent. Sure it's a minor hassle, but it works.

I've been consequently flagging all spam messages negative. But I don't reply to any of them anymore.

+1 on this

Ken this is a way who really work to stop the spamming, the Horror Digital Forum that I am a member of (just like Corey ) use this way and I don't even remember a spam post there.

How about a moderator editing the spammers post to delete the useless information.  This would serve the same purpose to effectively removing the thread.
