    Why are we not allowed to post current event examples and information relating to the lack of research anymore on BHW. For not being SEO Related? Yet is related to SEO and marketing.

    How is this not allowed?

    Its literally a thread about how the general public is stupid in regards to such a basic common sense about the history of a company. And that people can be tricked into buying whatever you want because they are stupid.


    However I can create a thread every week for the next year about having superpowers or magic powers, or people

    I knew you were going to say that! Must have been my magic powers I have. I think I may start a thread teaching newbies how to use magic

    I closed this topic as you have a history of posting off topic, right wing and political topics.

    This past was about peoples views on symbols which can linked to Nazis (rightly or wrongly, I don't care).

    Rather than warn you, I simply closed it.

    The post was about people making stupid claims against the owners of a company, because of the lack of simple common sense. Do a simple check on who the owners were and what happened in their country in their parents and grandparents generation were there.

    IT WAS NOT OFF TOPIC, POLITICAL OR "RIGHT WING"

    IT WAS ABOUT PEOPLE AND HOW STUPID THEY ARE AND EVEN THE ONLY OTHER TAKEAWAY WAS TO DOUBLE CHECK ANY KIND OF PRODUCT.

    @Capo Dei Capi - you have a huge history of posting threads which are political or designed to get people annoyed. I (and other mods) have asked you repeatedly to think before you post and yet again you have not done it.

    I will admit that this was a bit soft compared to your normal kind of posts but with your history and the fact we have warned you nicely about this more times than I can remember I thought it was best to just close the thread before it turned into the shit storm your threads normally turn into...

    As a reminder, please read this:
    https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/politics-and-religion.512479/

    Now I am far from an expert in politics, but I would class any discussion around Nazi's as political.

    Once again I will remind you this is a SEO/Internet Marketing forum with strict rules against politics and religious discussions. While I can see your side of things in terms of marketing and tricking people I think you could have found a better example to prove your point.

    It was not political, because nothing political was being discussed. For something to be Political, it has to be promoting or talking about an agenda for government policy or a ideological viewpoint. The thread never delved into any sort of agenda or viewpoint and it would not have delved into it if the thread was still open. It was just about people not having common sense about a company and pretty much slandering them from their stupidity, and how stupid people are easy to get to believe anything therefore buy anything if you take advantage of their stupidity.

    For Example -
    Politics:
    Well the Nazis position on that issue was wrong and I oppose it.
    Not Politics:
    The Nazis are known to have hidden large amounts of gold somewhere in the alps, and I intend to find it before anyone else does.

    Even many movie discussion threads are several orders of magnitude closer to politics than the thread that was locked, due to the subject matter that the film is about or promoting(Captain America : Civil War for example)
    --------------------------------
    Also why didn't you get "upset "over the unit 731+unit 1644 reference I made about most people not caring if such a shirt was made and totally ignoring that.

    Dude... your post had nothing to do with IM. There are plenty of other places to post that kinda stuff, BHW isn't one of those places.

    The mods get to set the range of acceptable topics, that's why they are mods. This isn't worth raging about.

    Probably the best advice is to drop it, you've reached power status so don't throw it all away getting yourself banned.

    It was perfectly acceptable until someone freaked out about it, BHW is a place to talk about it. And it does have a lot to do with IM, way more than a large portion of the threads created in that section.

    It even had a secondary purpose that I wasn't even thinking about that HAS ALOT TO DO WITH IM besides just the mentality of the general public. That secondary purpose is that you have to double check things before putting them to market. A logo you buy for cheap from someone, may end up as having a connection to some bad symbol in another culture or country.

    OP if a Mod is saying something and asking you not to do it why don't you just accept it ? Arguing not going to get you anywhere.

    Dude if you're going to bring up the Nazi's I'm going to shut your thread, it's as simple as that.

    I've PM'd you so many times about this that I've lost track. I've repeatedly asked you to keep politics/SJW's/Feminism/religious views out of BHW because when you post them you do it in a very "passionate" way that ends up with people bashing other people.

    I don't even know what that is....

    No it's not.

    So if anything related to or having a connection to the nazis is not allowed then I will report any and all threads with a connection to them. If someone talks about fanta or volkswagen among hundreds of other things I will be reporting those threads.
    Even a Captain America thread will have to be reported due to how and why he got his start and his "connection" to them(among any other movies/characters that have a connection similar to how he has a connection).

    I WAS NOT TALKING POLITICS IN THAT THREAD, please go read it again and then look up the definition of politics.

    ------------------------------------
    They were just as bad if not worse(Japanese military units that did horrible war crimes in China,Singapore and some other places), but pretty much most of the stuff going on in Asia during WW2 gets ignored in America+Europe other than the battles.


    ------------------------------------------
    Then what is okay on this "IM" site if so many things are too "scary" to talk about? Literally hundreds of things seem to be taboo now on BHW under the current operators without any clear definition and examples given.

    As no Official BHW Definition for those things are given, people are going to keep going by the ones on wikipedia,webster etc. It's really not that complicated to at least expand those things to what BHW currently believes what it means instead of just relying on individual mod believes of what it means.

    If you are not happy with BHW rules, you can easily find an other forum to post what you want :)
