    Think about this for a min

    You operate an online and retail merchandising conglomerate company sistered with a media company.

    You goal is to increase sales of merchandise with these companies.

    One of these companies has a forum. You appreciate the traffic of this forum as it brings visibility to your site. However that traffic represents a very very small percentage of your actual customers.

    Now a sub forum of this site has even a smaller percent, however some of the langue and conversation on this forum is so offensive to some potential customers, that it might cause you to lose more customers than the traffic it creates gains.

    Why on earth should a company trying to sell retail merchandise be a "free speech" destination for debate that could cause them to lose sales?
    Bodybuilding.com being THE biggest fitness and bodybuilding community on the web and I think it is unethical business for them to withhold discussion of steroids.

    Unethical due to promoting snake oil supplements on people that clearly used steroids ( every model on the home page ) to endorse said snake oil supplement when really they never used the supplement. Instead of having a forum to properly educate members, people have to go to other shady forums with poor moderation and dangerous advice.

    Ethics should always come in front of profits. Bodybuilding.com being an American website and even stating in the rules that American law applies before anything should embrace freedom of speech and expression.

    And like all ethics, their "should" is completely meaningless, and in reality is only subject to power dynamics between parties with different values and interests.

    I for one will abide by the new rules and post in a more civilized manner and not use slurs, I just hope the rules are enforced equally so that slurs against certain groups - which do not have official victim status - are also banned.

    I also find it quite funny and ironic that 'the shareholders' are 'very concerned'. You guys do know you're not doing anything to lessen the idea of certain groups holding media power.

    Are you guys having problems with Google AdSense? Some forums are dealing with their insane rules and members can't post anything suggestive like cheerleaders in tight outfits anymore. Google has imposed sharia law on them.

    I will abide by the rules....one paragraph later, subtle Jewish media control reference. At least you didn't do it in the same sentence. So I guess that's progress.

    Sure, I've been called a xenophobe, but the truth is, I'm not. I honestly just feel that America is the best country and the other countries aren't as good. That used to be called patriotism.

    Just got back from banned camp after allegedly posting "antisemitism" posts on here. As far as I'm concerned, that's horsechit, but since you guys have the authority, the least I can is that we get a reference. Best I know is, I created a thread to a Norman Finklestein video, or something along those lines, and the next minute I was banned with the following:

    I sent an email, and received no reply, that's why I'm suggesting that it be done as a part of the ban itself.

    So at the end of the day, you don't know what you've been banned for, other than someone, somewhere, decided it was against some vaguely defined rule.

    Oh but with you, the mods always have a legitimate reason for banning. Your existance prompts a ban. =)

    Then you can email admin if you get no response. Nobody is going to write you a dissertation explaining your ban in triplicate.

    I see what most people get banned for, and trust me it's perfectly justified. Many people get dragged down in the misc. to the point where they think anything and everything is justified behavior. Then they are shocked when they get banned for something that "they've been saying forever", when in fact it is simply that it took that long to get caught.

    If you read and follow the rules you'll have no problems. Believe it or not, there are MILLIONS of members here who have never been banned at all. I wonder what their secret is?

    Just a copy of the post in question, or a quote of what was said is enough. If the point of banning someone is to warn them, so as to change their behavior, the person would need to know what it is they said that was such a big deal.

    I'm not sure you can really compare the entire R/P, versus the subforums where there are smaller percentages of people posting in long debates, with multiple posts a day.

    It's no secret that the recent Israeli/Palestinian crisis has caused the owners of this site to crack down on discussions here. All these recent bans are not typical. I've been on this site since 2007, and never got banned over thousands of posts until twice this week. So yes, the rules are new and the recent bans are vague.

    That's all I have to say on the matter, I don't care enough to try to convince you guys beyond the simple ask I've already made.
    Because if it were easy, I wouldn't be interested.

    Once upon a time I was banned, I emailed the mod who banned me, he didn't respond, then I emailed admin, he responded and gave me a brief explanation.

    Here's something to think about:

    Bodybuilding.com is a private corporation.
    For private corporations profit comes before anything else; including morality. (To remind yourself of this, think Wallstreet)

    So, the question is:
    How do open discussions regarding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict result in a reduction in Bodybuilding.com's profits?

    There's no point to be upset with the mods. They're employers (or maybe volunteers) of a private company. At the end, they all have to answer the big guy(s) at the top.

    And David said, "The Lord who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear, He will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine." And Saul said to David, "Go, and may the Lord be with you." (1 Samuel 17:37)

    Thus David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone, and he struck the Philistine and killed him; but there was no sword in David’s hand. (1 Samuel 17:50)

    can I get some insight as to why my Euro nationalism thread was deleted?
