I tried to delete these 4 non-review links and they were declined after pending for 6 or 7 days and in the meantime you approved a 5th URL there which is a malware infested spam piracy site ("bcmovie" one)

I submitted this submission number to help desk and asked what "Does not meet contribution guidelines", they ignored it and did not reply or handle it.

So IMDb, as an Amazon company, wants Amazon's most expensive show to be pirated? Is that why you approve a malware infested piracy site and then deny any attempt to remove it and then your support ignores inquiry about that failed deletion? What does that mean?

How would Amazon feel about one of their subsidiaries promoting piracy of their most expensive show prominently (external review links appear in very visible places in title pages after all) with malware infested links and refusing to delete it?

I can't make sense of it, why would such a simple and obvious deletion of spam fail while a malware infested piracy site addition does not fail at the same time and why would support ignore my inquiry about it?

That site is most likely spammed to other titles too btw, you should clean it and block it ("bcmovie" is the one that should be cleaned&blocked, other 4 links were not spams but rather irrelevant/non-review links)

Hi mbmb -

Thanks for reporting.  I have now removed all External Review links from the title page as well as cleaned-up any remaining"bcmovie" links on other title pages.

Thanks again!
