Default *Joins the "banned from Healthboards" band-wagon"*

Yep, I was banned from Healthboards last month. Apparently for inappropriate posts. All I did was want to get in contact with a 14 year old guy with CP, well it seems like that was forbidden and before I knew it I was banned. I only had like 20 posts, must be a record.

I really wanted to meet this guy.

I was banned from there too, about a year and a half ago. Such a shame that board is so restrictive. There are a ton of adults with CP who post on that board-- way more than who post(ed) on BT. I'm surprised more HB posters didn't find their way over to BT.

and just for the record if any moderater from HealthBoards ever sees this: I HATE YOUR BOARD AND FEEL THAT YOU DO A DISSERVICE TO PEOPLE WHO POST THERE BY BEING SO UTTERLY AND NEEDLESSLY RESTRICTIVE. I HOPE YOUR SERVER CRASHES TOO AND SOMEONE ELSE STARTS UP A HEALTHBOARDS2 WITHOUT THE STUPID RESTRICTIONS SO THAT PEOPLE CAN ACTUALLY GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER.

There... thanks for indulging me. I feel so much better now

Hey I was banned from there to. My reason for getting kicked off was because I tried to start a poll. It was against the rules I guess!

WELCOME TO STEPFORD!!!

I was banned twice from there!
just for posting helpful links for people.

How they expect someone with repetitive strain injuries to type out long posts explaining things is beyond me.

Default Banned Too .....

Same here.

I'm Tham, 48, from Malaysia. I found your board
after doing a search on Google with the keywords
"healthboards, banned and Gestapo" !
They suspended two days me ago. After doing some
research on Medline to help a female poster in their
"Heart Diseases" subforum who had the difficult and
complex heart condition ARVD (Arrhythmogenic Right
Ventricular Dysplasia, which I knew nothing off before
reading her post ), I had made a very long post the night
before suggesting supplements, backed with studies from
Medline, which I had to reproduce in full since they did not
allow any kind of links to be posted.

The next day, when I tried to log in, there was a message that
my account had been suspended with the note "... posting
materials by other users" and asking me to get in touch
with their mods. My post had also beem removed.

I wrote in, giving them a piece of my mind. The transcript of
my mail and their reply is reproduced below. Within moments
yesterday, I was banned, and several moments later, my IP
was .... blocked. I further replied to this, telling them that a
quick check on the net
appears to reveal that their forum moderators have a reputation
of Nazi Gestapo or SS concentration camp officers, to which
they did not respond, but I forgot to save a draft of this mail.

Hello,
The purpose of a forum is the choice of the owner.

Your derogatory assessment of this website is
incorrect and inappropriate. Please do use those other
websites more to your preference.

Default I was banned too.....

I was banned yesterday. Are they for real???? Get a chuckle from this.....

When I logged in after posting the night before to someone who suffers from something similar to me, I received a message from Healthboards that my account was suspended because I posted my email address. So, I emailed the administrator the following:

Subject: please reinstate
Date: 2/4/2007 5:27:39 PM Eastern Standard Time
From: XXXXXX (deleted by me b/c I tried to resubscribe to repost my messagge)
Reply To:
To: adminmod@healthboards.com

I was unaware of the rule of not posting my email address.

I am 4 days post op tendon transfer and am desperate for information.


Their response was:

Subject: Re: please reinstate

Please always send your exact registered username(s)
and the registered email address(es), along with your
questions when you email admin or a moderator. Thanks.


I emailed them my username and sent the email from the address I signed up with. They replied with the following:

You need to address the reason you lost posting
privileges.



My reply was:

Forget it. Your board isnt worth my time or energy. You simply are being ridiculous and petty. It's a message board, not an application to be the President! What are you, the CIA or Secret Service ? Do you wnt my SS#?

You emailed me stating why I lost privileges (you allege I posted my email). Why do I need to repeat myself?

I am flat on my back, cannot walk and am in pain like you cannot imagine. I need help desperately about my recent surgery and you make it impossible for people who need help to get help from others in a similar position.

You should be embarrassed.

In my opinion, Adolf Hitler's Deutsches Reich of Nazi Germany has nothing on Healthboards.com

I got "canned" from Healthboards.com by Moderator2. In another life I'm thinking maybe he was one of those "Jack-booted, Brown-shirted SS Troopers" you could find goose-stepping through Berlin in the 1930's!

I'm gonna call him "Klaus".

Anyway, "Klaus" gave absolutely no specific reason for my banning from Healthboards.com except an email that said, "INAPPROPRIATE POST".

To this day I don't have a clue about why I got banned from Healthboards.com! ZERO! NOTHING!

Regardless, it's really not worth my time to "appeal for reinstatement" to Healthboards.com

I just simply could not be bothered.

At best, Healthboards.com is just a mediocre forum.

There are much better health forums out there on the Internet without having "Klaus" constantly looking over your shoulder!
