So I saw this thread got locked:


http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-955305/suspected-islamic-extremist-shoots-dead-at-least-20-at-florida-gay-club



And that several people who were criticising Islam were banned, while people who were critcising Christianity were not.



Has there been an update to the Forum etiquette rules that no one was aware of???

Kinda like what happened on Reddit /r/news. They're deleting and banning people who post about the shooting. The deleting and banning started after it was known that the shooter was Muslim.

I assume all offending posts have been deleted, but there is a difference between criticism and hate. Not sure if the line was crossed in this instance.

I'll be unlocking the thread and posting a brief explanation there. The offending posts were deleted so you don't see them there. Two bans were for participation in an exchange of personal attacks. Another was for tastelessness.

I'm closing this thread of yours because it doesn't seem especially warranted now that an explanation as been provided.
