IMDb: Freedom to post sign now

We, the IMDb message board users, hereby implore the IMDb staff to resolve this issue of unjust, and seemingly malicious, post and thread deletions.

In recent months threads, and posts both on and off topic have been disappearing at an alarming rate. We understand that you provide a free service and that server space is not unlimited, we know that threads must at times be culled, but the issue that has recently arisen is that some individuals ("Trolls") have been abusing the "Report Abuse" function. We understand that due to the huge number of reports made that not all can be checked by the IMDB staff, what we don't understand is why your "Report Abuse" system appears to have been changed. It seems much, much easier now to get a post, thread or even a posters account deleted, many boards and individual posters have been targeted, there have even been occasions on which "Trolls" have admitted to reporting innocent users and successfully getting their posts, threads or accounts deleted, despite the fact that they did not breach your Terms & Conditions.

We all appreciate your efforts, yours is certainly one of the best sites on the net, but a slowly rising number of message board users are either leaving or contemplating leaving the IMDb message boards. None of us want to do this, but it feels pointless to post when you know that it will almost certainly disappear very soon after.

This petition is not meant as a criticism of your website, or your efforts to maintain it, this petition is simply to bring to your attention how widespread and destructive this problem is.
