Anyone feel like the forums are becoming more and more moderated and censored, especially with this new flag someone as a game going on? "I don't agree with the link this person posted, flag it as spam!" I mean everyone on the site is an adult, i think the excessive moderation is going a bit too far. I've gotten more flags and seen more nuked posts in the last 2 weeks then in my previous 3.5 years here.

    Well, that's what we get for whining that we needed new forums! We got what we asked for, and then some! :\

    ETA: I, for one, do not mind the colors. I like colors :D

    I agree there. I got reported for "swearing." Last I knew, swears were bleeped out? I don't remember MFP being that way before. Lots has changed in my time off :P

    I think there needs to be more moral cleansing of ye heathens.

    Mind you, I believe we are all getting exactly what we pay for here.

    MyFitnessPolice is more like it.

    Back in the day... I got a warning for saying "Twinkies", so it's still kind of the same to me.

    I wouldn't mind the flagging system so much if it were a typical 'flag up/flag down' system. I think that would help weed out the hater/troll posts, while giving newbies a bit of an indication of what the general population thinks of the information posted.

    I've received a smattering of flags on otherwise respectful posts, simply because someone disagreed with what I wrote. I'd LOVE to be able to see if I had gotten some positive feedback as well. Without the whole picture, I think it just discourages thoughtful posting.

    Can't we just have a thumbs up, thumbs down for posts? I think that's what everyone really wants here.

    I mostly just laught about it. As an example, today I got flagged for "abuse" when I told someone who got heavy spinning dizziness everything she lifted her arms over her head to go see a doctor instead of asking us for advice on how to lift. But I really don't let it bother me, I know I meant nothing but good and I assume who ever flagged me is either sensitive or having a bad day.

    To be honest, it doesn't matter if people are adults. I've never seen such immature behaviour as you see on completely unmoderated forums with adults.

    1. If you haven't seen that many threads getting closed previously, you were clearly not having enough fun on the forums. All the REALLY good ones disappear.
    2. I don't remember there ever being a thread that questioned the moderation of the forums that has survived, so this thread being deleted is just par for the course.
