Whilst posting that something much anticipated is seeding before it is, is pointless & stupid, I have to wonder about all those who are willing to post "where where?" should we penalise them for spamming too?
It may well be that this is just one occurrence of an ongoing series of hoaxes, in which case the joke is on me (& it wouldn't be the first time) but I don't see how banning people will do anything to improve the forum.
I suggest that the admins give the perpetrator(s) & conspirator(s) a custom forum title of "Liar" "Unreliable" or similar in place of their rank.. that will give everyone fair warning next time they post..
In the meantime I intend to make some posts with titles like "WOLF! WOLF!", "Look behind you" & "Free Money". anyone replying to them will be banned for stupidity
