    They probably get closed cause they get out of hand. And I'm sure many have jobs/education.

    Yeah this, threads like the pua one were obviously going to get out of hand, so they get rightly closed.

    This is quite undemocratic
    Where, exactly, does it say that this is a democracy?

    There were some really interesting threads on here and debates and they have been taken down. One about pua another about approaching girls.

    This is quite undemocratic and censorship towards your sanctimonious nature and jealousy. I've always loved TSR for its passionate thinkers and opinionated posters. Thats what makes it great. Mods that interfere should be relieved of their rank abuse. Join the real world and get a real job.
    Threads are often deleted or cleaned up, due to rule breaking - otherwise you end up with sites where any thing goes

    Also, it's not really "undemocratic" to abide by rules...

    It's censorship I'll give you that, but when people join up, they agree to abide by certain rules. IF those rules are broken, they're dealt with accordingly

    Both of those got filled up with sexist bull**** so it's hardly surprising they were closed.

    Usually - because usually we get it right. Occasionally, we get it wrong and reverse cards

    That's subjective to be fair. I've been carded a lot of times where it genuinely was (looking at it in an unbiased way) a completely ridiculous decision to card me, and I mean completely ridiculous.

    The flipside of that there are a couple of things I think I should have got a straight out ban for that no one even did anything about...

    When you sign up to this site and post, you agree to a set of rules. Posts / Threads that infringe those rules get deleted and members who infringe those rules get warned or banned. Simple as. You agreed to the rules. If you don't like it then leave TSR, no one is stopping you.

    Imagine the most socially inept people, who have been bullied and pushed around their entire life, and so as a consequence spend an unhealthy amount of time on the internet...
    Or they work in IT/another job at a computer

    First they came for the Posters, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Poster.

    Then they came for the Subscribers, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Subscriber.

    Then they came for the Members, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Members.

    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
