    Read the forum rules.


    Then read them again.


    Then, if possible, read your last posts (search for words). All may then be obvious.

  3. All disputes that arise from conflicts or vagueness in the AUP are to be decided soley by the webmasters or their moderators.
    In other words, anything the webmaster/moderators want. When you run your own site you get to decide who gets banned.

    By the way, bypassing a ban by creating a new account is another way to get banned.

    Well the rule is 'fairly clear' (of course the interpretation of the rule is in the hands of the forum admin)

    General rules
    You agree not to post any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-orientated or any other material that may violate any applicable laws. Doing so may lead to you being immediately and permanently banned .......

    I hadn't read the rules (who does) ... but I absolutely adore that one, even if it had omitted "that may violate any applicable laws".

    edit: oh, re-read it and I guess it meant "or any other material that may violate any applicable laws"

  11. perhaps OT but if already provided explanation sound not convincing then you can blame growing popularity of the "cancel culture" - freedom of speech was a nice feature of the old, good days... now you need to adapt to 'a brave new world' so it is highly recommended to be used to a '1984' - good luck Winston

  12. Freedom of speech is often used as an excuse for people to feel they can spew any l kind of nonsense without retribution.
    Freedom of speech means that whatever you say allows anyone to react to it.
    There is a big difference.

    Nothing is 'free'


    Even speech


    Eventually one ends up paying for it.

    Well, I do.
    Even if it's only because most/all forums's rules are much shorter than any E.U.L.A./Termos-Of-Service I have ever met.

    Exactly. There are no "win win" situations IMHO.
    Just "win and I don't really see the consequences" or "win and socially acceptable consequences"

    I feel like that time Rimmer hosted a suicide hotline and they guy ordering a pizza killed himself...
