I never broke any rules, I never used any kind of foul language and I never slung any kind of insults around. I simply voiced an opinion and got shit on by one of the admins and thrown "in the hole". If this is a common practice on a FORUM where people are expected to voice opinions whether openly accepted/acknowledge popular or otherwise than I will simply find another MMA forum/website to visit daily.
As a fairly long standing reader of this site and an occasional contributer I find it disheartening that this kind of conduct is permitted. I consider this a fairly professional website that I up until today held to a pretty high standard. Hopefully this was simply a bad judgement call by an individual and doesn't reflect on the websites policies. Abusive administrators are probably the single most damaging thing you can have as apart of your staff.
People need to get some tough skin. I've seen people get really, really fucking flamed on other sites that are sexist, racist and anything you can think of. Considering this is an MMA board, full of young testosterone filled men you got off pretty lucky. This board does like to have it's fun but it does govern itself fairly well.
