Trolls on Board / injected advertising in epubs
« on: January 27, 2021, 01:42:30 AM »
Some people do weird stuff...

New user "scarfacedark" has too much time...

Other people remove the book-cover and inject ads in the books... some examples:

Despite the fact, that most of the manipulated books belong to the category "gay romance" - which is accumulating in a disturbing amount - or other similar topics, there is no reason to host the "infected" files and the library wouldn't miss them. But each to his own.

When searching for the titles they are already here, and if not, deleting would do no damage. In other cover-picture-missing books I found always the same advertising on page two:

I deleted the ones you mention. I'll try to keep an eye on them. Thanks for the catch.

I agree there is a lot of books coming into the library about romance or erotic (any kind of it). I'll love to see also other kinds of books coming in, I'm not a big fan myself of erotic/romantic books, but it looks like our contributors are.
Happy reading!!!

It's always the same advertising. Is it always the same uploader? The missing cover-picture makes me suspicious, and on the first page (table of contents) you always can read "Untitled by soft". Maybe you can apply a sort of filter for this kind of alterations.

Is it possible to ban this uploader?

What a pity! The "Imperial Library is no longer my library!
The German uploads are only for the gays!
Incredibly! Who is to read all this dirt? Is the world just batty boys?

Yeah, this whole shit is annoying. But it's just real life. And as you can see when looking at the download-counter, those trash-books had been downloaded only a few times, compared to the "real" books. So digging through the dirt is necessary to get to the diamonds, you still have the choice.

for me it is not real life. it looks like a "spamming offensive" of a political group  (if not even a governmental one).it would be nice to give them their own section for gays,lesbian,trans,queer.......literature!

I think I have to stay here.
Otherwise I miss the best sayings and new wisdoms.  ;)
Wish a pleasant day...

This is interesting, maybe we should take into account the number of downloads of a book (or visits) to improve the sorting of results on the search. I'll give it some thinking.
Happy reading!!!
