Re: List of aggregate users / bots

I'm intrigued by HAL9000 . Very little activity from 2014 till July of this year, then a bunch of mini-reviews, almost all the same rating, consisting solely of a sports-related nonsequitur that includes some portion of the film's title. 60 % 2001 Maniacs (2005) "2001 nba championship" 70 ...

Re: junkie love

Re: Do you change your ratings ?

The problem is that, by definition, one doesn't know, what one forgot.
