So, our discussion and postings were closely monitored by mylot, and we just couldn't freely to express our opinion here. We have to be selective on our topic discussion according to their policies specified. Foul languages definitely are prohibited. What about other sensitive topics, would they be banned if the admin won't like the discussion at all?

There is a commonly held misconception that people have "free speech" everywhere on the internet. It's important to remember that when we participate on someone's owned website, that entity (business, individual, etc.) has the right to set content and posting guidelines. So, in the case of this site, being owned by myLot, their administration does have every right to decide what we can and can't post here and they don't have to give us an explanation for what they remove. Since they own the site, they get to dictate what appears here and what doesn't. They provide their guidelines and we agree to be bound by them when we register to use the site. Unfortunately, though, a lot of people don't read things like Terms of Services and posting guidelines when they sign up on a website so, often times, they don't know or understand why things get removed. On this particular site, the links to these items are along the very bottom of the window :)
