Hi I was wondering what where the posts that got some people banned, I mean how did they get banned. Not that I want to get banned as this is a great site but rather how not to get banned - but frankly I'm just curious what did they do that was so bad?

Thanks for any replys :eek:

Most get banned for consistent personal abuse/attacks. In terms of numbers, perhaps less than ten in the whole time T2W has been around. It is a rare occurrence. Once warned, most members get the message...
Advertisers/spammers get instantly banned, no questions. Most members never get to see the adds or the spam because they are removed pretty swiftly by the Mods.

Another way to get into trouble on these boards is to point out the terrible human rights record of Israel, or to criticise Israel in any way what so ever!

If you don't get into 'trouble', the thread will be closed.

So much for free speech and T2W being a place where traders can freely discuss world events and their impact on the markets. What a shame.

U make a good point, my friend.............personally i don't c y it should be a problem if the thread is in d T2W lounge and d posts r not written in an inciting way. A typical example is d 'conspiracy theory' thread which was abruptly closed even tho ppl were only engaged in a healthy debate.

This is such a great site from which i have learnt (and will hopefully continue to learn) a lot from and i hope it would not go down that route of closing threads 4 no good reason.

BB I see no reason why you say that. The lounge is for free speech, and only in exceptional cases ( inciting racial hatred etc) will we delete posts.

So why are threads DELETED (not closed) as soon as people point out the weaknesses of Israel, but will happily tolerate the threads while equally valid points are made about other nations? There does seem a huge bias here.

As Grubs points out, there was a lively debate about current issues and their impact on world tensions. May be it was in the wrong forum, in which case it should be moved to the lounge and not deleted as if to pretend these issues don't exist.

As traders, I don't think we should take any opinions as personal. Any points made were at governments, or organisations. NOT individuals, especially no one on this board. If anyone does take any point personally or is offended then what are they doing on a trading board anyway?

Who does this board belong to? Its members or the 1/2 individual that 'police' it?

I take exception to the 1/2 policing bit. This BB would be like all others without it.... I'm not aware of anything that has been deleted re Israel. Your comments are 100% correct re opinions and should not be edited /deleted. One's personal opinion should be respected by all, no matter how strongly someone else feels about it. After all, it's feelings and opinions that makes up one's character.
If you feel there have been threads unjustly /unreasonably deleted, then perhaps you should complain, or object, to the Moderators. I am certainly not aware of any threads that have been subject to this, but there are three other Moderators. Each will have their own opinion as to whether a thread/post is deleted/censored etc. If we get a complaint that is serious/fraudulent/racist/controversial, we do discuss and decide what we think is best and where possible, try to arrive at a unanimous solution. That may not please some, but it's the best we can do.
If you have a specific issue, perhaps you should raise the point formally.
