I just wrote in a discussion the word =spam edited= and it was changed automatically to what you read now (actually I wrote just now researchg@te without @). Is this censorship needed, even if a mild censorship? When I understand the discussion right in the moderator's lounge, bioforum will anyway go in the direction of the r-gate with real names, photos as avatars etc.
for other words (real spam) it might be okay,didn't tried it, but it should not go overboard.

That censorship is necessary. People from that site constantly and shamelessly spam bioforum. They would register with different user names to send hundreds of PMs to our members to promote their site. There is no other way of stopping it except using a filter. We don't mind competition, we do mind spamming.

Okay, didn't know that they still doing this Posted Image, I thought it was a problem only shortly after the crash.
