A website is private property! No one has a "right" to an account here or the unlimited freedom to say and do what they like here, that's a pretty silly idea.

The point was that this website isn't special or unique for having these rules. It's just the way we do it and have done it since before I signed up.

It's not hidden! It's hardly like we buried it on an orphaned page or behind seven obscure hyperlinks or something, it's right there in the text. It's just the last thing on the list because it happens to be the last thing I added in when we rewrote the rules. Come one, trying to claim we're hiding it or something?

If you didn't like that rule which did you tick the box agreeing to it? We do listen to all criticism and regularly take suggestions from users - that's why we rewrote the rules in the first place. Just not in public so it can be done in a constructive way.

The "other-places-are-more-strict-so-you-can't-complain"-argument is stupid, it really is.

We might as well start banning jews. Why not? In Germany in the 30'es and 40'es they were tortured and murdered, banning them is nothing compared to that.

What Ross means is that the email address doesn't stand out in that wall of text cause it's not in bold or hyperlinked. If you just look over the text you'll miss it.

Ah I see. In that case I'll add it to a separate heading underneath that paragraph.

This sentence makes me giggle:

"Do not create false information about the band in order to sincerely mislead other users."

--------------------------------

Also, how many points does it take to get a ban?

I got an infraction for telling people that I sweep the floors at a radio station. It still makes me laugh.

I had typed a response to this on my phone, but my phone ate it, but i'll respond when I'm back in front of a computer. In short though, private property does not take precedence over free speech; the board wouldn't be special for not having its either, I don't think it has been hidden, but that it is hidden, and people's viewpoints change over time. I'll expand when I'm in front of a computer.

Can you provide some evidence of this freedom of speech thing? Everything I've ever read has made it quite clear that website operators are at liberty to decide what material remains on their websites. I'm not sure why you mention the 1st amendment of the USA constitution since this website isn't run by their Congress.

Just so you know, the whole free speech thing doesn't cover you to be able to say anthing anywhere whenever you want. For example you could get fired from work for publicly bitching about the bosses decisions and no-one would intervene so I'm not sure why you think the American government would care if you were banned from a messageboard for complaining about the moderators.

You get free speech, but it doesn't mean that private organisations have to put up with it if they don't like it, unless it's actually something serious.
