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 PMed me after I posted in this thread.

Edit: I just blocked him. User beware when posting in this thread.

[–]Neveronlyadream 8 points9 points ago

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

What a jackass.

[–]Gnorris 8 points9 points ago

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.

[–]themapleboy 0 points1 point ago

I dont get it if the torrent is fake how are the spoilers real?

[–]Gnorris [score hidden] ago

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.

[–]themapleboy [score hidden] ago

Ahhh i see. I guess i just didn't understand that leaked doesn't always mean downloadable. Thanks.

[–]IstheLieReallyaCake[S] 28 points29 points ago

Thank you, based mods.

[–]Yeats 12 points13 points ago

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.

[–]quantumflux22 4 points5 points ago

Motherfuck, clicked on his username for some reason (typical aimless clicking away) and read the spoiler. Goddamittttt

[–]Ambient80 3 points4 points ago

mod message sent (I think..). Hope that I can help out! :)

[–]flagondry 1 point2 points ago

Well done to all the mods in dealing with this - this really sucks for you guys :( All the best in your exams.

Can anyone tell me how to block users? I've tried before and can't work it out, I've also googled it but can't find anything.

[–]goodbeard 0 points1 point ago

Thank you, and the other mods, for doing such a great job. I've not seen any spoilers yet - at least unwittingly!

Good luck in your exams!

[–]gamegenieallday 67 points68 points ago

what a cock.

[–]IstheLieReallyaCake[S] 32 points33 points ago

Typically, I'd downvote this, but I honestly think this sums up all of our thoughts exactly.

[–]Ponce_In_A_Blue_Box 22 points23 points ago

I hope the Tenth Doctor catches him on one of his pissy moods and puts his ass on a mirror for all eternity.

Also screw you, I didn't fall for it! I never get any PMs anyway so it was obvious (I don't have any friends sob)

[–]Neveronlyadream 3 points4 points ago

There, there. I'll be your friend!

[–]you_me_fivedollars 0 points1 point ago

Well look at that, now you have at least two, good sir / madam

[–]hollingm 23 points24 points ago

  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.

[–]kintexu2 6 points7 points ago

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.

[–]NonSequiturEdit 0 points1 point ago

By email I assume you mean reddit PM. I'm just going to avoid my reddit inbox until the weekend. Thanks for the thorough instructions.

[–]Ambient80 13 points14 points ago

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.

[–]MedievalManagement 12 points13 points ago

I'm not particularly averse to spoilers, but I wouldn't give much credence to anything someone named /u/n1gg3r_chr1st had to say on any subject.

(User linked for quick and easy user ignoring without having to visit his profile) :)

[–]BunnyDeville 1 point2 points ago

I clicked on that and either you trolled me or it didn't work, because I saw about four words that I didn't want to see.

[–]MedievalManagement 7 points8 points ago

I guess it's a RES feature. I have a little tag next to everyone's name that I can use to tag or ignore without having to go to their profile.

Reddit Enhancement Suite

[–]BunnyDeville 1 point2 points ago

Yeah... I can't use that on my Android tablet. Oh, and right after I made that comment, the asshat spammed my inbox.

[–]SquiggleBiggle 0 points1 point ago

Same happened to me, damn it.

[–]VinnyMB25 12 points13 points ago

/u/n1gg3r_chr1st

/u/Meepysheep

Posted this so anyone with RES can block these users without having to risk seeing any comments they have made.

[–]Zoranius 3 points4 points ago

How do you block him? Do you just have the mouse over their names and then press IGNORE?

[–]irishfeet78 10 points11 points ago

This is happening in /r/HBOGameofThrones, too. Some people have no life.

[–]TheShader 12 points13 points ago

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.

[–]ZapActions-dower 3 points4 points ago

Chances are that they have specific troll accounts separate from their regular ones.

[–]imahippocampus 2 points3 points ago

Doesn't a private message just show up like an orangered comment reply? (it's possible I've never received one either)

[–]TheShader 0 points1 point ago

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'.

[–]imahippocampus 0 points1 point ago

Ah, good to know! I think I've had about one ever in that case, and that was just inviting me to a new sub.

[–]LordoftheQuill 5 points6 points ago

I favor capital punishment for all those who spoil the episode.

[–]omgfloofy 3 points4 points ago

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.

[–]pcjonathan 0 points1 point ago

but he's definitely reading these threads on here.

Yeah.....I noticed that too.

[–]omgfloofy 1 point2 points ago

He really has no life if he has to do this sort of thing. xD

[–]Bridgeboy95 2 points3 points ago

i saw it happen as well its been sent to nearly everyone on this subreddit luckily i only saw a tiny bit which il probably forget

[–]IstheLieReallyaCake[S] 3 points4 points ago

Yup. I stopped reading from the first line.

[–]Bridgeboy95 0 points1 point ago

same it was the top line to only blinked it will be forgotten by saturday

[–]ElDuderino2112 2 points3 points ago

Got a message for him this morning. Already reported and blocked him and went through his account and reported every post with a spoiler he's made. This is the worst kind of scum.

[–]bigkaboom12 2 points3 points ago

I already unsubbed from /r/doctorwho and /r/gallifrey for the next week. I only browse them directly, since he or she or it won't send me anything if I'm not on them. I only browse them directly too, to stop myself absent-mindedly clicking front page links.

[–]omgfloofy 1 point2 points ago

If you use Twitter, you might want to block that user, without the underscore in the name. He's doing the same on twitter also.

[–]PaperPhoneBox 1 point2 points ago

I accidentally saw the spoilers when I blocked meepysheep so be careful.

No big deal, I won't let it ruin my fun.

[–]Cat612 1 point2 points ago

What is the spoiler for? The series finale?

[–]PaperPhoneBox 1 point2 points ago

yes, some troll bastard looking to ruin things.

[–]Cat612 0 points1 point ago

Crap. That's awful, I think I'll just stay off the internet until Saturday.... haha, yeah right

[–]PaperPhoneBox 0 points1 point ago

best way to stay safe.

there are warnings on on both /r/gallifrey and /r/doctorwho about trolls and Wikipedia (and other wikis) having details posted already.

sit tight, 4 more days.

[–]Thyrth 1 point2 points ago

That's mess up

[–]thetiffdee 0 points1 point ago

Most people in this sub probably already know what happens anyways, so the joke is on him

[–]thetiffdee 0 points1 point ago

Also, The_big_NC is the same person

[–]Cyanyde422 0 points1 point ago

I got this pm, didn't read it though because it was all in caps and obviously contained spoilers, but thanks for the heads up.

[–]skeletalpeacock 0 points1 point ago

yeah i remember when i was 12 years old and that kind of thing was funny

[–]DeadAimHeadshot [score hidden] ago

I was also tweeted spoilers by him.

[–]agnosticmanator 0 points1 point ago

I want to know the spoilers.

It was Earth all along.

[–]bigkaboom12 3 points4 points ago

No... Bruce Wayne? It all makes sense now...

[–]hollingm 10 points11 points ago

Everything you think took place inside that hospital actually took place in the mind of an autistic boy looking at a building in a snow globe held in his hand.

[–]BCCakes 7 points8 points ago

The kids help E.T. escape the feds and he goes home

[–]hollingm 2 points3 points ago

Then Elliott and his friends are kidnapped by evil aliens and try to contact E.T. for help. No, really.

[–]TheShader 5 points6 points ago

But why did it all end in a church!?

[–]TheShader 1 point2 points ago

I get the reference you're making, but I was continuing the line of 'How it ended' with my own reference ;). Although mine was actually a double reference referring to Popular TV show minor spoilers

Link of second reference

[–]ZapActions-dower 3 points4 points ago

Go to their user pages.

Moffat here. Deal is off; No Matt & David video.

[–]PENIS_CUM_SHIT_BALLS 1 point2 points ago

liar, it's either going to be on youtube or in the complete series 7 boxset

[–]KafkaAnright 0 points1 point ago

No, that'll be totally a different one that we shot before the blu-ray leak. It just so happens to also feature Matt and David.

[–]BCCakes 0 points1 point ago

[–]agnosticmanator 0 points1 point ago

I didn't think it was ruined. I actually like the spoilers.

[–]KafkaAnright 1 point2 points ago

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.

It's like making a paragraph-long spoiler for The Bible. You can't possibly reveal every major facet of the tale adequately.

[–]BCCakes 0 points1 point ago

I get that. Since other commenters were giving spoilers to movies, i thought i'd post a link to a website that revelas the ending of almost every movie made
