Really? Never really noticed that. I guess they had to make a quick choice?

Benjamin Franklin once said that In this world nothing is certain but death and taxes. I suppose in the virtual world, it's spambots!

I don't want to say this as an insult, but do they use A Bug's Life as their scapegoat as fake members?

I hope my "flag post" has helped, i'm getting the feeling that that actually got on someone's nerves, specifically, a moderators!

Maybee their life's so dull it's the same as a bug's when someone is around.

I think we can listen to Hopper on how to deal with spambots:

It could be a coincidence. Or maybe (and this is just a theory) that the spambots needed to choose a movie as their favorite Pixar movie before they can register. And A Bugs Life is probably on the top of the list (going in alphabetical order). So they just pick it and boom, they signed on.

I really don't like these spammers. We have a nice happy little place, and then THEY come :D Anyways, thank you guys for doing all this! I'm a minority, but I don't really remember the whole signing up process at all so I can't say it was hard, but thanks for changing it and still keeping them spammers out! You guys do so much :D
I'm a proud Pixarteer!

There are spamers everywhere. On Youtube their say thing's like "on Dec 12 1946 a girl named Hailey Summer got killed by her friend's, now she doesn't trust anyone, if you don't post this to 5 other video's, you will die at 3:00 AM." Or they saw check out my channel to win something, they also make account's, abandon them, and never use it again just so you can't have it.
