[Update: The above was based on dizant's post - thanks dizant!]

 Glad I could contribute. :) A friend sent the sql my way, so I can't really take the credit.

I've continued to add to the original post when I see new codec posters pop up.  Just FYI if you're looking to block this guy.

Extremely glad to have been pointed to this thread.

One thing I've noticed is this jerk is not only posting wmv's but avi's as well... Wouldn't it make more sense for the codec option (removeCrapReleases.php) to simply look for that folder and Setup.exe?  This would kill the lot of em rather than only wmv's.

I personally would never expect a movie release to include an exe and if it did I'd want it purged...

removeCrapReleases IS looking for those folders.

When you grab 500KB of a 4GB RAR set of files, sometimes that's not enough to get the whole list of contents within the RAR.

True, but the code appeared to be looking for that folder AND a .wmv... I changed the .wmv to .avi and got a different set of results to purge, they also having the codec folder present.

I have made a pull request with changes, to include avi (but it might catch some legit releases) and XXX categories, as that spammer is posting there too.

Kick ass!  Now will be interesting to see how quickly he/she jumps to mkv's to keep us chasing...

Just a thought (probably more relevant to an archive import)...it might be a consideration to include a post date in conjunction with the poster username. It would obviously add to the load but it might prevent losing some valid releases prior to this codec guy's efforts.

Found a new email for the poster today.

You may want to add this one to your blacklist

Ok so I have some odd results using the latest 'codec' option.... I see you added in wmv|avi and this is indeed catching more results.
Not being a guru such as yourself, please let me know if my understanding of your work is accurate:

The query is looking in the categories specified, for releases with wmv OR avi with filenames which contain \Codec\Setup.exe OR 'If_you_get_error.txt'

I put together a test VM - pulled down ONLY movie categories, then expanded your work  by changing only the   wmv|avi   to   wmv|avi|mp4|mpg|mkv

This caught a TON of valid releases...which makes me wonder, why?  If none of them contained either search term - how or why would valid releases be included?  It's just weird - I also did a search against releasefiles and looked for %Setup.exe% - I had 3 hits yet using the script hand close to 200....
