Already sent it to our mod mails. I've blocked and removed them best I can. I would recommend everyone to block him NOW, so he doesn't have a chance. He's already tried to do it to me. And "insult" me on Twitter.

Edit: /u/Meepysheep too. Both are banned from both subreddits, but please ensure you have blocked them both first as a preventive measure. They are more than likely the same person.

Edit 2: Also, Frankly, I'm already sick of dealing with these type of things on both /r/DoctorWho and /r/Gallifrey. I've got 2 mock exams and a real exam this week, along with several other things to do. I can't put all my time into this whole thing this week. So, as far as I'm concerned, if people break these rules (ie. ask/give link to leak or spoilers) and I notice it, instant ban. Already warned twice about it. Mistakes can always be revoked later if need be. :)

~~We're also looking for some temporary mods. If you're interested, please send us a modmail, and we'll see if you fit in. We would also be considering a new permanent mod.~~ Woah. OK. So far, about 12 people have messaged us. That's enough for now, thanks!

He just got me. Joke's on him, because he didn't tell me anything I didn't already know.

A fake torrent of Name of the Doctor was uploaded to TPB under the username JakeWarternberg, someone that the Twitter user MsMeep_Sheep accused of being a child pornographer. The same account has been spamming spoilers for the episode in caps.

As DW seems to be the current project of choice for trolls, and they've gone as far as to upload a fake torrent, I'm sure we can expect more reddit posts and PMs from day zero accounts all this week. Remember to leave a comment yelling and crying a lot if you see these posts so they can get their satisfication. Otherwise their complex planning will feel like a waste.

Due to the episode being in some people's hands already, spoilers can be found easily online. While these people are faking torrents because they don't have the episode, it's easy for them to search for spoilers and retweet them over and over.

Right on man. Messing up a spoiler tag is one thing but purposefully posting or sending spoilers is cruel. I'm glad you're getting tough with the ban hammer. Thanks for helping to keep this place clean.

Edit: And just like that i get an message with spoilers. Please be sure to block with RES.

Edit2: I'd love to help out, already messaged mods.

  1. Install Reddit Enhancement Suite.

  2. Go to his profile page.

  3. Without reading his comments, find the header of a comment, and click the icon directly to the right of his username. (Test it out first in a regular comment thread, just so you know the icon you're looking for.)

  4. Click Ignore > Yes

You won't see anything more from him. When he posts a comment in a thread, you'll see a message about the comment being blocked. You can click the sentence to view the comment if you want. You can also tag his username with an identifying description (e.g., "this guy trolls Doctor Who spoilers") and color code it. Do this with all trolls you've had a run-in with and you'll avoid many future conflicts.

Important: The troll will still e-mail you the spoilers. If you have tagged him with a long description and made it an ugly neon lime green (or whatever), you can safely open your e-mail and see it's the troll and avoid looking at his comment. The comment won't be obscured, but the color coding tells you to not read it.

You can take RES blocking one step further. In the RES settings there is a switch for "hard ignore" which will hide even the "comment made by ignored user" box.

Yep I had the same thing. I saw like a quick line that said "THE DOCTOR" and looked away in horror. Luckily did not see anything else :)

EDIT: I should add, the post in question was in all caps. It also seems as though the same message is being sent to multiple people. Likely a copy and paste. For reference, the post starts with "THE DOCTOR'S", and is roughly 10 lines of text, again all in caps. It is also signed with the person's twitter handle (I assume, as it starts with an @ symbol). Hopefully this will allow folks to avoid it if they get a similar message in their inbox. I honestly only saw the first two words of the post, so there's not much more of a warning I can give to folks.

Hope this helps.

Right? How come these kind of people never have decent names? Bunch of tweens thinking the use of the N-word makes them edgy or something.

Anyway, I'd suggest people just be careful in general. At least in my experience, private messages are a rare thing on Reddit. So if you receive one, just be cautious of the contents. Thankfully when I received mine I was really busy, so I just glanced for key words(yay reading skills!) and quickly realized what the message was before reading any of the content.

  • 06:12:31, 14 May

Yes and no. It shows up as an orange-red, but when you click your little envelope you'll notice that the subject line isn't a link. So, for instance, when you receive this, above all this typing I've done you'll see a link back to the original post. When you receive a PM it's just a black subject line like 'Hey!' or 'Doctor Who Spoilers'.

I talked to him via PM's on here after I made a bot comment on another thread- he is apparently insulted that I implied that he might be a bot. lol

He's also saying he's got a lot of usernames, so I guess be prepared for his shenanigans with this, but he's definitely reading these threads on here.

Good mindset. None of the rumored spoilers out there, even the somewhat true ones, have captured every significant and awesome aspect of the finale and 50th.
