Why are other Honda forums and such censored? Sometimes it is easier to link to there, then to have a url full of **********, and tell people what to fill it in with. Everyone knows about honda tech, and they choose to come here. IMO, it shouldnt be censored.

basically we have alot of people try to advertise other forums on superhonda (in order to get people to move over..etc). thats why we just censor it to prevent it from happening.

We censor sites for only one reason. Spamming & Advertising. Each and every site ever placed into our censors.

Goes through this process.

1. A blatant ad or go here post is made.
2. The offending user is pm'd to stop the blatant advertising.
3. Next if the user continues, we edit or remove posts that continue.
4. Finally the website is placed into censor for the main reason (we dont want moderators and admins wasting their time editing out website addresses, so we let the included option on VB do the work of censoring out these websites).

Weve never just thrown sites into censors for any other reason than that. The reason we do have a lot in the censors is because we were the original Honda / Acura Community. And quite a large amount of Honda website you might know about has come to superhonda and posted unauthorized advertisements to boost there forums. As this is the largest gathering / registrations of all of them still to this day.

We have had over 300,000+ registered users pass through here. So I cant really blame them for trying. But if we let them all do this , the site would look like a walking talking advertisement for other sites and users would get confused to who there real paying advertisers are.

This is good for supporting our advertisers, who deserve our support since they are supporting superhonda and its servers which bring you this place. As much as a website may have great info , if we get spammed , its goes into censor.

Beyond that were still open to having the webmasters of banned sites make an agreement to not spam and we can remove the censor and work out a reasonable way to promote each other.
