Writing.com / Termination of account
Writing.com is a site where they falsely identify themselves as being a good place for writers. However, they're administration is horrible. They are very well known for censoring anything that they don't like, deleting accounts simply because they can, and even deleting accounts if you questions them; something I found out the hard way. The site has an unspoken rule about how your biography should be. Mine did not fit this rule and so their moderator removed it... I posted it up altered it a bit; upon telling the moderator he had no right to erase my entire biography (which I spent about 30 minutes writing and preparing, ) writing.com removed my account without any reason, logic, or explanation as to why. Upon sending them an email asking why, this is what I got back: "Failure to understand or care about our policies, along with your unacceptable attitude towards our moderators means you are no longer welcome on Writing.Com." I had apparently failed to understand a non-existent rule. Furthermore, I was apparently disrespectful to one of their moderators. How was I disrespectful? I treated him as he treated me... which was slightly above crap upon talking to him/her. I do not suggest this site to anybody who really wants to be a writer. I know of good sites that work EXACTLY like writing.com but without the censorship, and the tyranny of its administration staff.
