Childish e90post censorship. Fair?

Sometimes if people ask for specific DME tuning advice that has already been covered extensively on

, I'll generally try and give the helpful advice of suggesting to go and take a look. It kinda struck a chord for me when my post came out like this:

I've never come across anything like this between forums in multiple previous car communities.

Thoughts?

There's a few words that get **** out.
Tuners names, software, forums.

Posts get deleted too.

I have had one warning for naming another forum.

Admin notified, you me in trouble mate.

It's pretty stupid, you should be able to say what ever you like.

That's said the owners of the forum can do what ever they like, if they get paid for sponsorship and advertising and we don't pay to be here, we play by their rules.

At the end of the day the forum is a cash cow, and they govern it as they see fit to suit their best interests and their interests only...

Having said that I still think its a great forum and hardly spend much time on any of the others...

It is heavy handed, but as said above it's their cash-cow to do as they please with. We agreed to follow their rules when we signed up, so we have to go along or leave, basically.

I'm still blown away at the fact theres no active Australian forum for BMW. Seems like everyone with N54s are only on these forums. If it wasn't for the Aus section here, I wouldnt bother posting at all.

Why don't we start our own Aussie based forum? It can't cost too much surely.

Socket can be the prez

Yes its active, to be the only active N54 group in Aus:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/1Mand135iAust

Discussion isnt too technical but its a good group to talk to local people

A forum takes participants... In which everyone seems to be comfortable in staying here, regardless of the BS that happens here.

I've been contemplating shutting it down many times, but was hoping for members to become active there.
