I've found that there is not much censorship here. It's why I left the other place who will remain you unnamed.

Banning is such a pussy move. I have vowed to never ban or block someone on any of my own and the MSM social media pages. I'd rather have someone call me a douchebag and leave it there so that I can reply to it. Let Muscular Development use their 'invisible ink' strategy. Typical Blechy shaky bullshit.

I only ban for spamming, other than that everyone is free to speak their minds here at MuscleMecca and I tend to encourage it. :)

Spamming is really one of the few good reasons to ban and remove posts. I agree, this is one of the reasons I love it here.

Spam is different than a basic negative post. But you look at some of the forums in this industry and they delete posts and ban users at will.

We actually also edit posts sometimes to fix spelling errors, label images, remove content pasted from other sites..Things like that mostly for the sake of search engines. I know of at least one member this used to really piss off, Coach I think left because of this reason but these days staying up with Google is difficult especially for a forum. These things have to be done.

I agree, you have to make sure there are no links to other sites...why give other sites free rankings?

That's fine, too, and not silencing someone's opinion because it differs from yours. MD just banned a longtime member for life because his posts were too negative and bashing. But other members defending him pointed out the same exact type of behavior out of the MD staff on the board, including the fan boy new editor. Be consistent and you limit the criticism.

You are welcome and I'm grateful to have read some of your posts on this forum as well. From the time that I have been here, I've gotten to learn some new things that have assisted me to be better at bodybuilding which is my sole aim of joining the forum in the first place. Keep up with the good work that you've been doing so far!

Coming across Musclemecca was such a delightful thing. There is so much I didn't know about sports. This has been such a journey that's full of inspirations and educational information. Such an experience to share with all of you.

MM is the only BBing forum left looking at. Even Get Big has been a snooze fest lately. RX pretty much abandoned theirs & MD's always was all censorship against the feds & a loveliest for them.
