This thread is for reporting illegitimate accounts. If you encounter a problem with a legitimate user, please report the user using the report link or PM a forum moderator / DB administrator.

What is an illegitimate account? An account that is a:
  • duplicate account used to boost/drop ratings, sway votes in club contests or for other disrupting purposes; or
  • bot account to spam users or manipulate lists.

Let me repeat: This thread is for reporting illegitimate accounts only. Do not post accounts you do not 100% believe are trolls. Do not argue with posts made by other users, instigate arguments by PMing/commenting others or make off-topic posts. Please leave the decision making to the administrators.

If you have any questions or concerns about this thread or it's contents, then please feel free to PM a DB administrator.

I am going to assume it's him from the name and from the other user post on his profile, join date and lack of profile stuff.
He just seems like a spammer to me.

No, it's not the same user. We've been getting some uriel537 etc. bots on accounts that are likely the same one, but this is a legitimate user that's just never really used their account. You're likely getting the email spam due to the email address on your profile. The bot must have been "smart" enough to complete your ...

http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=73355&show=0#post A lot of the accounts in this thread were never taken care of. Edited the OP in that thread to leave the ones that were never taken care of.

Thanks.

Forgot about these in my other post in that thread.

http://myanimelist.net/profile/theanimeman Same day joined and rated.

http://myanimelist.net/profile/NBahamut Same day joined and rated. Most likely the same person.

http://myanimelist.net/profile/Mazon Same day joined and rated.

http://myanimelist.net/profile/peksi I find it suspicious that their list is on private.

http://myanimelist.net/profile/asdfjkl

http://myanimelist.net/profile/magic

While I know magic is a legitimate user is there a way to remove his ratings? I argued with him once about it and he admitted that he did it only to be "outrageous"

There's no way to remove user scores from anime/manga lists. Users are free to rate all entries on their lists however they choose. It's creating multiple accounts that we have an issue with.

One score is not going to change an entry's rating the grand scheme of things.
