The Japanese Movie forum at Movieforum.com, a popular online movie forum, is now a bit more serious, and has banned Japanese and Korean movie discussion groups.
The site says it has taken action because of “further allegations of inappropriate behavior” by certain members, including one who was allegedly accused of sending sexually explicit messages to a female member.
In addition, the site is also cracking down on other groups.
“We are taking this action to prevent other sites that promote inappropriate behavior from being hosted in Japan,” the site’s blog post reads.
“If you are a member of one of these groups, we recommend you to immediately notify us so that we can take the necessary action to stop you.”
The site’s announcement came just hours after another Japanese movie forum banned two of its members, as well as the owner of a site where people can upload movies.
The forum’s other two members, who did not respond to requests for comment, said they had been suspended, and that they had also been banned from the site.
The new ban comes after the forum reported that one of its moderators had sent a photo of himself with an infant child to another member of the forum.
