  • Hi Folks, This message was sent by a user impersonating a moderator using a secondary account. The account has been deleted. My apologies for any concern this incident has caused. Steven MyFitnessPal Staff
  • Hi Folks, I'm going to lock this down before it has a chance to go too far south. The guideline in question reads (relevant portion in bold): We prefer that threads discussing past conflicts on the forums be avoided. If a conflict does arrive (say between meat eaters and vegans) the best response is to alert the moderators…

  • Hi Folks, I do need to lock this down. Because our terms of use require users to be 18 or older, threads seeking advice on adapting MFP for those under 18 are not permitted. Please refer all questions concerning the nutritional needs of minors to the appropriate medical professionals. This thread may be removed at some…
  • Hi Folks, Just a word to clarify that we receive plenty of moderator reports that we simply dismiss. The question is never whether a user was offended by another's opinion, the question is always whether a topic violates one of our site's guidlines ( http://www.myfitnesspal.com/welcome/guidelines ) We do our best to edit…
  • Folks, It's one thing to discuss and debate child-rearing strategies. It's another to make the discussion personal, and to directly insult other posters. There's a fair mix of both type of post in here, but it doesn't seem worth the effort to weed out the insults, since they're only bound to continue after a clean-up and…
  • We make every effort to maintain a safe and respectful environment in our public forums, so that all users can visit the forums, and get the support and encouragement they're seeking. To achieve this goal, we've established (and constantly update) our Community Guidelines. http://www.myfitnesspal.com/welcome/guidelines…
  • Dear Posters, I wanted to offer a brief explanation for the locking of this thread. The forum guidelines include this item: 16. No Political Topics in the Main Forums Political content is not allowed on the Main Forums. This includes images. Please form or join a Group if you would like to engage in political debate on…
  • Gotta end it here. On a personal note I think this debate has great value, but the public forums are not the place for it, based on our Community Guidelines and the political nature of the conversation, as it has evolved. http://www.myfitnesspal.com/welcome/guidelines Regards, Steven MyFitnessPal Staff
  • Actually, I'm referring to posts that question the social ramifications of local governments restricting the operation of a business, and now subsequent posts about the relationship between corporations, political donations, and legislation. Topics like this almost always end up creating an unwanted disturbance in the…
  • Folks, Just a note that this thread is likely to breach the "no political threads" guideline in very short order. To prevent that, I would recommend picking up this topic in a group or in wall posts. If further reports come in, I'll have to lock the thread based on Almost all threads on the topic of legislation of any…

  • Hi Folks, I need to lock this per the following guideline: Thanks, Steven MyFitnessPal Staff
  • One reason that we're a little fussy about this topic appearing on the main forums is that every user's home page, regardless of whether they ever visit the forums, shows a list of most recent topics. Many of our users log their food from work, and many corporate set-ups monitor web content on employee computers. We remove…
  • Hi Folks, I just wanted to clarify our guidelines about sexual topics in the public forums, as well as make sure all users are aware of the option of discussing sex more explicitly in Groups (which is one of the reasons we developed this features -- to provide a place of users to discuss topics considered too explicit for…
  • Hi Folks, Please be aware of the following forum guideline: Posts containing links to copyright-infringing content will be removed, and multiple offenses may lead to strikes. You can review our guidelines and strike policy here : http://www.myfitnesspal.com/welcome/guidelines Regards, Steven MyFitnessPal Staff

  • Hi Folks, Quick note about the locking of this thread. Please note the guideline ( http://www.myfitnesspal.com/welcome/guidelines ) about posting in the forums to comment on the behavior of other users. Regards, Steven MyFitnessPal Staff
  • Sorry folks, I'm going to lock this thread for several reasons. First, of course, is the fact that it's become personal in MANY posts, and that's the primary guideline of the forums: you can debate a topic, but almost from the starting gate this thread included personal judgements and insults. Quite frankly, too many to…

  • Thread has been locked at the request of the OP. Steven MyFitnessPal Staff
  • OK, I've removed (hopefully) all of the sound-and-fury signifying nothing. Can we please keep this civil? Further warranted reports of crap appearing in this thread will probably result in it being locked permanently. And PLEASE.. For the love of Pete PLEASE... before anyone starts shouting that the mods lock Veggie…
  • I am TEMPORARILY locking this thread while I remove the personal attacks and insults. It will be unlocked again when the violations have been removed. I strongly urge those who cannot participate in the vegetarian/meat-eater debate without attacking others to simply step away. We are at a zero-tolerance level for guideline…
  • Hi Folks, Just a reminder that it's contrary to forum guidelines to re-hash old conflicts, issues, or user behaviors in the forums. Due to the large number of posts in this thread that cross this line, I'm going to lock the thread rather than try to clean it up. Regards, Steven MyFitnessPal Staff
  • Hi Folks, I think this has run its course and is only going to lead to insults and other problems at this point. I'm locking 'er down. Happy 4th. Steven MyFitnessPal Staff
  • I'll make sure to raise the question of political ads with Mike in our next meeting. In the meantime I'm going to lock the thread to prevent it from becoming a) political or b) a place to vent about the forums. I think the thread has served its purpose and we'll definitely discuss the question of political ads on the site.…
  • Hi Folks, I'd like to draw everyone's attention to a guideline that's being stepped on quite a bit in this thread. It's one thing to discuss and debate one's goals, but please refrain from making any further derogatory comments about some women's bodies or what women "should" look like. Thanks for your cooperation, Steven…
  • Hi Folks, While I appreciate the vibrancy of this debate, this topic is off-limits for discussion on the public forums under the following guideline: While the efficacy of spanking may be debatable, the fact this it is an act of violence is not up for debate. So the public forums can't sustain conversations on this topic.…
  • Hi Folks, I think there's always going to be concern whenever rules are enforced on the site. I'd ask any with concerns about moderation to contact me, or the moderator in question, directly. While this thread seems to be discussing the topic in relatively good humor, threads of this sort almost always wind up taking a bad…
