I just did a search on the book browser and there is a whole bunch of these "sneak peek" manga books posted on here.

Shouldn't they be removed?

I don't read manga so I'm unfamiliar with the term. What does "sneak peak" manga means? Are they like ARCs?

I think Gayle's referring to the item discussed in this thread.

Gayle, if you're finding unpostable items posted into the system, you can let the PBS Team know via the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of any PBS page, then the "Feedback" button.  They can take whatever action is appropriate.  You likely will need to explain about the nature of the "sneak peek" items, that they aren't complete works, but just parts without endings.

There used to be a red sticky thread here too titled something like "suspicious items" where people would list things that are posted in the system that shouldn't be, like coloring books, pamphlets, other non-book items. For some reason that was unpinned and has apparently slid way down off the first page. Not sure why that was unpinned, unless it was something the team never looked at and they would prefer to be contacted directly via the 'contact us' link.

It was monitored by a member. She has passed on. No one took over the thread.

The Team said they unpinned the thread because they were getting the same information through Feedback as well. It was getting too difficult to monitor it both places, so they would just prefer that people send it through Feedback via the Contact Us link.
