Even though Black Shark is very active on social media in China and has a serious and active user base there, the EU and US social division is not so great. They don’t post as often, rarely reply to forum questions and are pretty much absent from the community. This is on top the fact that there are no words related to the JoyUI 11 update for the international version of the Black Shark 2 and 2 Pro. Now, it seems, the international forum has a serious spam problem.
If you are to browse the forum, you will see many posts from a few users that advertise different divorce “specialists”, astrologers, black magic gurus or even shadier businesses. The first 15 or 20 pages of the main forum are filled with just such posts, all in the past couple of days. Just look at the above screenshots or browse the forum yourself. To make things worse, this is the second time in the past two months when this happened. The first time all the posts were deleted in about a week (quite long to be honest) and I was expecting that they added some sort of spam protection, but it seems that the problem still persists. Not only does the forum partake now in advertising these shady businesses, it makes it really hard for real people to find the required information or ask for help.
